I definitely recomend this hotel! Mrs. Marjorie really help us with a lot of things! The breakfast is delicious and you can take it in the rooftops (terrace). Also we leaved our luggage there to go Islas del Rosario and Tayrona with out any problem!

We paid £59 for the junior suite and we were impressed by how spacious and clean the room was. The reception staff are helpful and friendly and the rooftop is a lovely addition to the hotel. The one complaint I have is about the breakfast - you’re asked to order your breakfast the night before and also pre-book your breakfast slot (7-9am). The breakfasts are a selection of breakfast sets from around the world, eg Mexican- eggs, salsa, fried beans and plantain. On 2 occasions I ordered the integral breakfast (the healthy option) and it came without the spinach. I was also given a very cheesy, ham omelette on one day instead of the allocated egg white omelette. There doesn’t seem to be much consistency and the breakfast staff couldn’t really understand what I was saying. Aside from that the breakfast is decent for what you’re paying but I wouldn’t wake up just to have it. The hotel is in an excellent area, near the centre of the busy old town. Some nights we had cars horning outside past 11/12 but they would be one off and usually quieten down soon enough. Overall, lovely hotel and good value for money.

Thank you for taking some time to leave us your comments, it helps us to improve our service. We will check about the breakfast, even though sometimes spinach is not easy to find in Cartagena, if you order an integral breakfast you should get the egg white omelet. Normally there is a bilingual hostess attending breakfast, but according to your comments, it should have been one of the days she was not there. We hope to have you here at our hotel on your next visit, we are making improvements, so next time you should find improved services.

This restaurant was a breath of fresh air with its Latin beats and samba style. I wasn’t the only one celebrating my bday there which is telling that it is a venue for celebration! The fun kitschy over the top Latin theme is a hit and compliments the music beautifully. Being a vegetarian party I was extremely impressed by the vegetarian options which were fantastic! The food view music was spectacular. Post dinner however, inspire if the brilliant music the place didn’t seem to “happen” much so while we would have loved to dance the night away, we carried on the night elsewhere. Having said that this place is currently a must visit in Dubai!! Don’t forget to order the mushroom and cheese empanadas!! Par excellence!!

Is a nice hotel located to a busy street, the biggest shopping street of Cartagena. The hotel entrance is rarely recognizable as it is between the shops. One thing annoyed me, the door is always locked and without knowing that is locked inside you keep on pushing the iron frame till they heard or see you standing outside as I didn’t see the bell button Front desk personnel isn’t really smart. They sometimes forget where the room keys, we left each time the key as it is the policy here. One time coming back to the hotel and asked the roomkey, they said they don’t have it, I said I left it here and they insist that they don’t see any key from us I’m crazy searching our room key, I have turn upside down my purse and suddenly they came up with our key and appologize. I cursed from my anger and they saw I wasn’t pleased for what they do For the rest, the hotel room is nice with good massage shower. Breakfast is basic with toast, fried eggs and coffee. Front desk staff need to concentrate of their job, must paying attention to the room keys. They were always two person behind the counter and likely chatting to each other than entertain the hotel guest

Thank you for taking some of your time to leave your comments. We apologize for the inconvenience with the front desk, and we take notice of your comments. As the hotel is located inside the historical area we are not able to install a bigger sign, we had another one and the city did not allow it also, so we are checking how to let the people notice the entrance of the hotel.

My partner and I stayed at Hotel Cartagena Royal Inn for 3 nights. The hotel is inside the Walled city, and close to many restaurants, shops and cafes. We were pleasantly surprised by our room, which was a generous size with good air conditioning and a comfortable bed. The shower was amazing- large shower head with good water pressure. We didn’t use many hotel facilities- it would have been great if the jacuzzi had warm water instead of cold. Staff were friendly and offered to help book day tours. Would stay again!
