Really enjoyed this hotel. Great breakfast. Great location. Clean rooms with quite a bit of space. Receptive staff. Quiet room.. I can't think of anything negative. I would gladly stay there again. The hotel also helps you with taxis, airport, and transfer to other cities.

We had a good experience at this hotel. We chose a room that was the size we wanted. The staff was friendly and two staff members spoke good English. When we came in from the days' activities, the friendly restaurant manager, Louis, gave us coffee each time. There was an excellent laundry service nearby. We used the pool and enjoyed,... More

It was a decent 3-star hotel. The rooms and bathrooms were a bit cramped, but clean. The staff is helpful. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, however. For the price, you might be able to find a nicer place in the Old City if you shop around, unless you like Bocagrande (which I didn't).

I believe that for the price (about 110,000 COP per night for a bedroom for a 2 people), one could find a MUCH better hotel. The room was so humid that even the sheets felt wet. My bathing suit that I hung up to dry never dried because of the intense humidity. The room and the hotel don´t look bad,... More

The staff here were all very accommodating and welcoming. They all smiled and made small talk. I always felt like a welcomed guest. Unfortunately, the hotel needs an update. There were black ants all over the bathroom sink and walls. One day I went to wash my face only to find ants all over the towel. YUCK! The wifi was... More

Is an ok hotel located in the modern part of the city, very close to the beach and to the main shopping street. The staff is very professional and friendly. Cartagena could be a very expensive city, if you like to stay in the modern part of it and not expend much money, its a good choice.

I don't like to write bad reviews about places because I know that bad reviews can deceive others to book. However I also know that posting experiences that were not so cool you help travelers to make smarter decisions. This hotel is just okay.
