Stayed there for one night on a lay-over. The premises are nice, updated in an old building, exactly what one would expect from a boutique hotel in a historical city. We stayed at a ground level room, which we came to regret, since we heard all the conversations of people in the lobby and patio. They should really insulate the doors and windows much better. Perhaps add a layer of glass aside from the traditional wooden shutters, which would give guests a view of the patio, which would add to the pleasure of staying there? Personnel very cordial and helpful.

This is a very pleasant hotel, with comfortable rooms and nice areas for relaxing with a book. Breakfast is served on the lovely rooftop terrace in the mornings. The hotel is very close to the city walls and the port, but Getsemani, where it is located, is well worth a wander as well.

This hotel provides nice little rooms around a nice patio. You may just want to avoid the first 3 rooms on ground floor opening immediately on the lobby. They are a bit it noisy. Other rooms are fine.

If you look at the pix, everything look just perfect, but its not! Very small rooms, NO SAFE in the rooms, no hot water.... Breakfast was good and good locations. But you can find too many hotel cheaper with better quality.

Our experience at Casa Baluarte was excellent! The hotel is safe, located within walking distance to the walled city & Getsemani. Our room came with breakfast that was different each of our 5 day stay. We had fresh squeezed juice, coffee, a plate with several slices of fresh fruit, and eggs or pancakes served different each day. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone heading to Cartagena.
