The employees are very friendly, competent and helpful - they deserve the max points. The rooms are quite small. The real drawback is the noise at night. Recently, a disco opend next door and blares its bad music at highest volume in the otherwise quiet night. Forget sleep - which is somehow the pomt of taking a hotel.

I read many reviews of this hotel before my selection. Yes, there were some noisy nights, but ear plugs will take care of that. Cartagena is a vibrant area with people partying sometimes late at night. I chose this hotel based on its proximity as well as the fact that is was quite intimate in regard to only having ten...

I liked this hotel and liked the rooms. The staff was great and accommodating. The room i had on the street was a bit loud but the staff was able to move me- I was there during a national holiday/festival. With that said: i found the mattresses very comfortable. The breakfast was simple but very good. And the plunge pool... More

This hotel is steps away from the clock tower within the walled city. The service was top notch -- everyone was kind and attentive. The hotel itself is an old structure that has thick walls and a lot of character. Amenities include wifi and a small rooftop pool, which is a godsend on a 100+ degree Cartagena day. The rooms...

Great little hotel in the heart of the walled city. We had a room on the second floor not too far from the pool. The bed was very big and comfortable. The location is perfect, everything within Cartagena is no further than 10 minutes away on foot. Breakfast is simple and they offer eggs to order. The staff is super... More

Lovely little hotel. Great staff, really friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable large and clean. Location was perfect. A very short walk from the clock tower which is where many of the tours begin and is a good reference point for getting around the old town. Breakfast was very good, and we loved the fact that they offered a... More

Las Carretas is truly a gem. It's located within the walled city of Cartagena and just steps away from Torre del Rejoj. The hotel was in the perfect location for food, exploration, and nightlife. They do a wonderful fresh breakfast spread and a currency exchange is also open on the 1st floor during business hours. All of the staff were... More

This is a beautiful hotel within walking distance to everything in the walled city. The room was very nice, and we loved the rooftop pool as well as the daily breakfasts. The employees were very kind and friendly.

Very good breakfast, good room (chose one with balcony facing street), good beds and bathroom. Good aircon. Excellent location. Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke English well. Just a warning that there is no lift but there are only one or two floors to ascend.

This is a lovely hotel with a marvelous staff and a fabulous breakfast. There is only one problem. The noise at night from the nearby bars makes sleep extremely difficult. One night the loud music lasted until 3:30 in the morning. This is very unfortunate because it spoils the experience of a great hotel.
