Very centrally located in Cartegana. It is a little too far to walk to all the major sites without having lots of time. Saying this however the hotel provided a great tour booklet on the key sites that they had prepared. This was fabulous. The ability to park under the hotel was great (in the neighbouring hotel carpark) and to... More

If you need a bed for the night in Cartagena you will be fine in this hotel. I had a room with a non-view but it was quiet, clean and comfortable. My reservation was without breakfast and they were asking €9 for breakfast which is a bit steep since you can walk out of the door and get a toast+coffee+orange... More

Very nice. Hip and trendy decor, bright colours, clean, well appointed, professional, great location, quiet, nice restaurant, lots of shops in the street. Very close to the bus station and a five to ten minute walk to a stop on the Tourist Sightseeing bus route. Spacious room, good wifi, minibar. Excellent!

Our room looked as if it had been lifted entire from an IKEA showroom. That was fine with us though the mattresses were a bit hard. Free wifi and safe key. It was a good size and had everything you need. The price was I think 47 euros, very good value. The breakfast was also pretty good and inexpensive. There... More

During the check-out we were serviced by a lady who didn't see anything wrong in forcing us to wait for her about 10 minutes (she was talking via phone). It was the first time I was treated so unprofessionally.

We stayed here for 1 night during the Easter holidays with 2 children of 8 and 6 years. Cartagena doesn't have many hotels around the centre, especially those offering family rooms, and this one is only a short walk to the top of the pedestrian heart to the city.
