A good stay! A very clean and tidy place as the staff are continually cleaning. A place to stay if you want to be In a location close to many areas In the old town. Cold showers but that wasn't a big deal. Good AC but rooms are pretty dark. No breakfast here but many Cafes around.

La Magdalena is very well located, being only 5- 10 mins from the old town. The rooms are very basic but very clean and comfortable, the only problem we had is the shower gutters did work very well and can flood easily. The air conditioning was excellent which you definitely need with the humidity, as was the wifi. The property... More

This hotel is in a great spot - close enough to the old city and away from the noise of all the bars that are nearby. My friends and I got the three person room, which had two full beds and one single - super spacious. The room and bathroom were very clean and the staff were pleasant. The room... More

We booked the hotel for 4 days and ended up staying 7. The staff was really friendly and made us feel at home. It's in an ideal location: close to La Plaza de Santisima Trinidad, some great restaurants, and many tourist locales. The wifi here was the best out of everywhere we've stayed in Colombia. And Lulu the dog was... More

Centrally located right in the heart of Cartagena in the unvarnished part of the real part of town. An easy walk to the more touristic and stylish Old Town and basically everything else. There's a great luxury launder mat in 100 feet of the hotel. You have everything you need from a comfortable bed, good wifi, A/C, and a 40... More

This hotel is perfectly located in Getsmani, central part of Cartagena. It's walking distance (less than 1km) from every single tourist attraction! The staff is friendly, helped by the cutest bulldog called Lulu. Rooms are clean and the only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I would have loved a minibar in the room. 4,5 it deserves!

Hotel Magdalena was everything we needed and more in Cartagena. The staff were flexible and extremely friendly. They were more than happy to store our things while we travelled to Santa Marta. The rooms were clean, quiet and best of all, cool. Wifi worked perfectly and the hotel dog named Lulu was always around for a giggle. Great place to... More
