First of all if you're looking for a five-star hotel, move onto the next search this place is not for you. If you want a nice clean place with hot water, air conditioning, and a nice roof over your head with free breakfast included, then this is the place for you while visiting the walled city of Cartagena.

Stayed here for a week as a solo traveller. The room is small, but comfortable in the Walled City of Cartagena. The breakfast in courtyard is delicious and included in the stay. The courtyard is filled with gorgeous flowers adorning the walls of the colonial building.

This is a modest but comfortable hotel close to the city wall of Cartagena and easily walkable to all the city's most popular squares, bars and restaurants. My room was spacious and comfortable with a king bed and wood paneled ceiling. There was air conditioning, a fridge and a security box, although it was a joke: not screwed down and... More

This is our second stay at this little hotel in the walled old city. Very conviently situauated with a little shop across the road that sells a bit of everything from beverages to snacks. We booked the family room this time as we were travelling with 2 young children. The room was ample and cleaned well each day. The breakfast... More

This hotel is located in the northern part of the Centro Historico. It is only 5 or 6 blocks away from major sites such as the Clock Tower, Plaza de Santo Domingo which also contains the 16th century church, Plaza de Simon Bolivar, Las Bovedas, and much more. The hotel itself is located one block away from a small plaza... More

Location: really, we walked to everything in Cartagena from here. Bocagrande, Getsemani, San Francisco and all over downtown. We didn't find it sketchy at all and I felt perfectly fine walking around at night in the neighbourhood. Really quiet. Staff: Jorge Luis was really lovely, despite our poor Spanish. Jorge (Van?) was also really helpful, whenever we asked questions of... More

I stayed in Cartagena for three days. This place is basic, clean, staff is ok, breakfast is good on a la carte basis. Of course, a swimming pool was much missed. Fair for a short stay and good price - quality.

Spent two nights here in early January. Hotel is located in the old town, which is great, though a bit on the outskirts. A little skiddish at night, but also means there's little noise. Has AC and hot water. My only qualems with this place is that we asked the front desk lady to call the Marsol bus to reserve... More

We stayed 3 days at this hotel. I wanted to emphasize that A/C worked because I read before we went that that has been the issue for other guests. The breakfast included fresh fruit, freshly made juice, coffee, banana bread and your choice of main dish (omelette, eggs, arepas, etc.) Really good! The hotel is in a very good location... More

I stayed for 3 nights at the Puertas de Cartagena. It is in the old city so I guess one can not expect much. This hotel got 2 stars from me for the fact it was clean. That is it. Air con is bad, the breakfast and mutual area is tiny and HOT. The breakfast it self was to me... More
