“Romantic Paradise in the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 3 nights in january 2013. This hotel is right in the city centre within the walls of the old town and offers beautiful spacious rooms with air condition and breakfast (basics like toast and eggs). The staff was very helpful and nice. The atmosphere within the jungle like court yard is just perfect! Would definitely recommend that hotel!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

To be located in the Old City in Cartagena, this hotel is very reasonably priced. For 100/night, you’re right in the Centre of the old town, amidst beautiful restaurants, roads, and sights. The rooms are clean and air conditioned and the hotel is walking distance from all the places you’ll go.

We stayed here for two nights.
Very comfortable and warm place. Employees are friendly and rooms are neat.
Though we don't speak Spanish we still get everything we want.
Definitely the best choice if you like to stay close to old town area.

My wife and I stayed seven nights at this hotel in September. The location is excellent. It is quiet and close to all of the old city attractions. The help are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very good-eggs, toast, juice, coffee. The maid service was excellent. We stayed in one of the third floor rooms and it was well worth the extra expense. It had a balcony and a good view of the old city. The air conditioning was very good, even with the high heat and humidity of Cartagena in mid-day. The bathrooms were fine and the water pressure adequate. There are many restaurants nearby in all price ranges. I would use this hotel on a return trip to Cartagena.

I stayed 8 nights at 3 Banderas Hotel. Everything was nice. The room, the breakfast, the service, the installations, the recommandations given by the staff, etc. I had a very very nice stay in Cartagena. I would not hesitate to come back to this hotel.

A very nice and welcoming 3 star hotel. The location cannot be better. The entree with the locked gate inspires a feeling a safety. The staff at the reception was helpful and efficient, with a sense of humour, without fail. The breakfast room is a little small, but the cooks work fast and with a smile.
Rooms: this hotel consists of two walled in houses, Cartagena style, so there are no views to the outside. This cannot be helped and there must be many many more hotels like this. It means that on the groundfloor, you only window/view will be to the courtyard. If you find that confining, get/reserve, for a little more, a room upstairs with a balcony: very nice.
Our room, upstairs was roomy, quiet, excellent aircon and good bathroom and shower.
Brand new safebox!
Good wifi trough the whole of the hotel, and two pc's in the lobby.
Taxi services is swift: ask for prices before you get in.
Many restaurants within spitting (sorry :) distance. The outside pizzas at Juan del Mar are good and near.
No swimming pool, which could be a boon in hot Cartagena.

A Great Hotel Boutique in the Wall City, were you are received with a Don Quijote Sculpt. Personnel is very kind an pleasant, be patient we them if you do not speak any Spanish, great middle yard to have a great local breakfast. Price is around $100 per night that's great, you have mini bar, they offer Tours, even Massage.

Room Tip: Go Upstairs.
