We knew the place would be nice, as a result of tripadvisor reviews, but this place is great. Quirky yet stylish decoration, excellent breakfasts, very welcoming hosts and a great pool to cool off in-what more do you need. Set a short distance from the old city and as a result more peaceful this hotel is one we will definitely... More

Although the Castel is located away from the Walled City and Bocagrande, it is a welcoming B&B with a nice swiming pool to relax, a welcoming staff and tasteful decoration. The staff are really helpful and will try to cater for all your needs. Only WiFi was out of order the two times I was there. And, although I had... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in September, and I loved it. I was upgraded to a lovely room with a king size bed and a huge bathroom. Alexandra and Peter were lovely, very helpful, and were happy to direct me to places to eat, and whatever else I asked them. The lady that does the beautiful breakfast and cleans... More

I read the reviews on this hotel before booking it and it had been highly rated for good reason. I am a female and was traveling alone and I felt so comfortable here. The owners and staff are warm, professional, and helpful. They gave me many tips for how to negotiate the city, for example what to pay taxi drivers.... More

Hotel Castel was a home away from home. The owners Alexandra and Peter are so gracious and giving of their time. Breakfast every morning was typical american, it was nice to have coffee and juice after a long night of drinking anejo rum. The pool was a must every morning before the walk into the centro historico, which only takes... More

My husband and I stayed at Casa Castel for 3 nights in December. The owners Peter and Alex were very welcoming and hospitable. The property is newly renovated, very clean, and tastefully decorated. Common areas are comfortable and relaxing. The B&B is located in Manga, which is more local and not very touristy. That being said, you have to take... More

This boutique hotel is owned and run by an Italian couple. They make you feel right at home here. They keep the place very clean and are just great people at heart. The hotel and room designs are pretty cool. I'd like to have a home like this someday. Also, you are only a 20-25 minute walk from the Old... More

the service is excellent, is super clean and the location is wonderful. you are in cartagena but located in a very traditional neighborhood, you can see cartagena from another point of view, you do not feel like a tourist in Manga specially in this hotel. my only negative coment was the breakfast very small.
