Great place! I stayed with my girlfriend for 5 nights and enjoyed every moment! Staff are extremely friendly, helpful and fun. We met Diana on arrival who from the start made us smile and had a sweet personality. She first of all welcomed us and showed us a room and asked if we were happy to stay which I thought... More

My girlfriend and I stayed initially for 3 nights, however we extended and were very sad to leave after 5. I felt as though I could stay here forever!

This is a great place, liked it so much came back after going to Tayrona Park. Staff are very good, friendly and welcoming. Owners are one Colombian guy and an Englishman, both very friendly and easy to talk to. Breakfast is out of this world. We are from UK and this is definitely most important meal of the day.

Thank you so much for your kind comments. Our breakfasts are certainly more English than Colombian and I want our guests to start their day on a full stomach ! We are also now offering croissants as well as cereal or a cooked breakfast that changes every day. More

This little hotel is located in a perfect location, Bocagrande. It is a fun area and across the street from the beach. A 5min. taxi to the walled city. The hotel is a "work in progress" and you can tell that it is cared for. The rooms were clean and the best part was the owner, Brian. He welcomed us... More

The hotel is very simple, but it´s worth the price. No elevator, you have to take the stairs for 3 floors. The location is great, I even got a beach view room. However there is a building being raised in front of it, so it was very noisy and the view will be gone sooner or later.. Very good air... More

Thank you very much for your comments, much appreciated. I am so pleased that you found we offered value for money, which is one of my main aims, especially as I feel a lot of hotels and restaurants in Cartagena are overpriced. I also appreciate that you noticed we are decorating and up grading our facilities on almost a daily... More

Much thanks to Carlos and Brian for being such gracious hosts while I stayed here during my trip! The location is superb, a stone's throw from the beach in Bocagrande. There are a number of excellent dining and shopping options of all types close by, and the old city is very easily accessible by either a scenic 20 minute walk... More

Brain and his staff made my short stay in Cartagena just wonderful as they made me feel right at home.
