I had a small dark room. Perhaps they have better ones. It was clean. The shower worked well. I've rented much better rooms in Cartagena for the same price. Breakfast was OK, but the coffee was not good. Front desk staff are not particularly friendly. Convenient location.

This was a solid 3 star hotel! After spending one night here, we decided to extend it to a total of four nights due to the accommodations, location, safety, breakfast and staff. All in all, I'd give this a 5/5 for a 3 star hotel! Accommodations: Set your standards for a three star hotel, because that's exactly what this is.... More

Nice little hotel in a great location and good value for money. Decent breakfast that's included as well. The room was a bit loud, as it faced the street directly, but probably only affected our room. Pretty standard all around, nothing too fancy.

Best location in the centre of the old town, friendly and helpful staff. Just a stroll away from the sea and the old city wall, lots of restaurants nearby. The rooms are old style but most bathroom renovated. Good aircon, fridge and TV.

From the reviews and the price we hoped for a basic room in a historic setting. Unfortunately, even for the price, this hotel was disappointing. The bath and bed linen were threadbare and yellow and in need of replacing, the bathroom was basic, the decor, well there wasn't any really. Yes it had AC which was vital, and good internet....

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. I guess... More

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
