The hotel is quite simple but still very nice! We had huge a room with 2 king size beds and a large balcony (the top balcony above the "tennis" store on the pics). Even though you are in the middle of the historic center, I slept very well - even though you have the normal downtown noise on the street.... More

As others have mentioned, the hotel is in a great location because you can walk to El Centro, it is half a block from Parque Fernandez Madrid (but then again mostly everything is walking distance within the Old City). TIP ON DIRECTIONS: Ask the driver to go to Calle Segunda de Badillo , rather than trusting Google Maps (which just... More

This hotel is in a great location and although the room is very simple it was extremely clean and comfortable. We had a wrap around balcony that looked out over the street and allowed us to watch all the action from our room. Breakfast was served each day on the rooftop patio and is made to order. Although you are... More

This was the third stay at Balcones del Badillo. I am a repeat customer because of the location, quality of the service and enjoyable breakfasts on the rooftop overlooking part of the Ciudad Amurallada. They are very considerate and accommodating. There is wifi access with a computer and printer. It is located between Getsemine and plaza Santo domingo neighborhoods. I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this lovely hotel in the heart of Cartagena's historic center. The owner and all of her staff were kind, hospitable and knowledgeable and the breakfasts were hot and delicious with yummy, fresh tropical juices every morning. They helped us feel at home and we had a wonderful stay! I would highly recommend this hotel... More

I stayed here as I was traveling with a pet and they were one of the few hotels that accept pets. The front desk was helpful and the hotel is well located. However there were a lot of negatives. There was no hot water in the bathroom sink and they said that wasn't provided. The pillows were hard as a... More

this little hotel is situated in the old city of Cartagena. The rooms are simply furnished but they have their own toalett and shower. The hotel is very secure, clean and the stuff is so kind and helpful. The breakfast with eggs, bread, juice and coffe is served on the roof terass. We leaved there at first four nights and... More

Ladies, stay away from this place! The guy who checked me in seemed friendly. He told my husband and me that his name was Ricard, and that he had only one room available - 304. He brought us to the room. I asked him where the bathroom was. He showed it to me. I was exhausted from traveling and accepted... More

I paid dearly for this room. If you can find cheaper, go for it! But.. if want a nice area, pretty hotel and room, balcony view of the narrow Cartagena streets, then this is what you will get. The only downside was the entry. You have to ring the doorbell and wait for someone to open the door. If you... More

THIS IS NOT A HOTEL ! This is your basic backpackers B & B except you get your own room and pay dearly for it. It is clean but NOT WORTH HALF THE RIDICULOUS $65 a head. They DO NOT charge by the room but rather by the person, so if you are not alone it is an absurd $130... More
