I decided to go to Cartagena in a four days break. I went to this hotel where I had been about three times years ago. I prefer this hotel for three main reasons:
1. Its location; it is in Bocagrande, the tourists place in the city. The major hotels are there, as well as good restaurants, some cafés, supermarkets, and great beaches (if you want to watch the sunset); and you can walk to all those places in a few minutes. Besides, you are just five minutes by taxi next to the Old City with its big walls and fortresses.
2. It has a swimming pool; yes; I know that going to Cartagena looking for a swimming pool makes no sense. Notwithstanding, i really prefer to swim the clean swimming pool than the dark sea and sand of Cartagena beaches. Don't blame on me, I was born in a fully transparent sea and coral sands island.
3. Its price; it's not really expensive in relation to other hotels of its category in the same area. Not too cheap, but if you plan is to spend your time tanning by the swimming pool and walking around to have drinks of food, you'll love this hotel. The breakfast is included in the price but is very regular. I never tried the restaurant for lunch nor dinner. I think there are better options in such a wonderful city like Cartagena. You can find really good food and drinks too in the Old City.
Yes; I would be back to this again if I go to Cartagena. But if you want a fancy hotel and rooms, this is not your place.
