From the minute I walked in I thought that Don Johnson from miami vice was going to be walking the hallways of my hotel as it was a little antiquated, not like it matters as I only spend my time there to sleep and shower. Loved that the AC could freeze out my room, for those long days in cartagena... More

I just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as a chill out after 3 long jungle weeks. I was greeted with enthusiasm when I arrived, my room was lovely and just what I needed to relax. The pool area is spotless and the staff in the restaurant/ bar were fabulous. I ate at the hotel once and it was... More

This place is well located at the end of Bocagrande, near the beach and the main avenue of shops and restaurants. It is a bit of a kick back to the 60's but I loved it, especially the multicoloured tiled floor. The pool is nice and big and you can use it until 8pm. The rooms are ok, the beds... More

The hotel is clean and the rooms are OK. The distance to the beach is a few minutes walk and the beach of Bocagrande is extensive. The distance to the old town is about 5 km, which can be covered with a public bus. The service was very good. Small but good swimming pool. Restaurants around the corner.

The only reason this is 3 star is the pool. The rooms had hair, mop strands and brown crud on the floor and the cleaning solution smells nasty. For $116 a night in a developing country I'd expect better. Breakfast was tasty and well cooked. Staff and cleaning people mostly eager to help. Bus tour of the city was a... More

I decided to go to Cartagena in a four days break. I went to this hotel where I had been about three times years ago. I prefer this hotel for three main reasons: 1. Its location; it is in Bocagrande, the tourists place in the city. The major hotels are there, as well as good restaurants, some cafés, supermarkets, and... More

My second stay here was not as good as first. Very dated rooms. Beds very close to floor and not very comfortable. The A/C not very good and had to change rooms and the new room was only slightly better. Hot water was hard to adjust. Over all was not a bad place just not worth what they charge. Not... More

This place is as bare bones as you get. We probably paid a premium because of timing when we booked and it was over New Year's. The front desk staff was really friendly. Check in was a breeze. Then we got to our room. Beds were low to the floor, bathroom was tiny. The place just had a feel of... More
