“Great location and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I stayed at Hotel Centenario for four nights last week after arriving from Panama by boat. The hotel is in a good location, close to a supermarket, banks and the old walled city. The room was clean with air conditioner that worked very well as well as a flat screen TV, Breakfast was not included in my $55,000 COP for a private room and bath but down the street at another hostel I was able to purchase a good breakfast cheep. Staff, especially the cleaning staff were great. fresh towels and soap every day. The mattress was a bit too firm for my liking but I got used to it after the second night. There were a couple of issues with the room but not issues that one could not deal with unless you expected the Ritz. There was a small leak somewhere behind the sink that came onto the floor in front of the sink but with fresh towels it was just a matter of using the sink and then soaking up the small pool of water, Also my shower had no head so it was just a full stream of "cool" water....which with 30 degree temps is quite OK.
If back in Cartagena I would consider staying here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We selected this hotel on price, and the fact it was in Getsemeni, so close to the old town.

Location was great, and the hotel was ok for the price. Nothing special, but clean room, wifi and aircon. Offered tours were perhaps a little expensive compared to booking independently.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple
