Great hotel just inside the wall. Quiet and comfortable for sleeping and easy to get around from there. Lovely welcome drinks were served and the property was clean and well appointed. Small problem with a leaky air conditioning unit which didn't reduce the effectiveness of the AC so no complaints. Cabs were always available and we were a 10 minute... More

The hotel is very well located in a perfect spot inside the "cidade amurallada". The hotel is small and friendly with a perfect match with the Cartagena history. You can fell as you were living many centuries ago. Good breakfast and very polite staff members although some could have a better support for the turist with local tips.

La Merced Royal afforded a comfortable surrounding with very affable staff. Plunge pool and roof top jacuzzi with views over the sea were more than enough to cool off. Well equipped accommodation with delightful breakfast room. Situated within the walled city within walking distance of all amenities but quiet and serene thanks to classic Spanish style atrium.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel and were absolutely amazed. What a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the historic center. Free gourmet breakfast every morning and a friendly staff. On our last day there, our flight wasn't until 11pm at night. Instead of having to carry our luggage with us all day, the hotel was so accommodating... More

We spent three excellent nights in this hotel. The room (Don Antonio) was beautiful. Huge, with multiple seating areas. The included breakfast was outstanding, with full waiter service in a lovely room. The hotel is in a great location, steps to everything opposite Teatro Herederia. The staff-Hernando, Loragne, and Jose were accommodating and helpful, The pool area, while small was... More

La Merced Royal is a small (9 room) hotel with an excellent location in the historic center. The staff were all very friendly and the rooms very clean and modern. Everything is within walking distance (restaurants, sites, etc)

When I arrived I asked desk clerk Jose if the corporate rate I had been quoted included the taxes. He checked, and informed me that it did. When I checked out, he told me that since I was a resident of Colombia, the taxes would have to be charged to me separately. This would have resulted in me paying $210... More

I was in Cartagena for the film festival last March and stayed for a week at this boutique hotel right in front of the TAM theatre, by the walls facing the sea of the Old Town. I was very happy to be there: the location was perfect, walking distance (well, everything is walking distance within the Old Town) from the... More
