Located within the Walled City this was a great choice. The staff at the front desk are so friendly and helpful guiding us around the area. Our room was perfect. Loved our balcony looking over the Old Town. Nice amenities..the windows had shutters which keep it quiet at night..fridge..safe ..and breakfast included.

The location of this hotel could not be better, located inside the main gates of the old city, but within blocks of the Getsemani neighborhood. Restaraunt, bar, and shopping choices abound (good, swanky, touristy, and overpriced in the old city; better, cheap, and with a more local feel in Getsemani). Staff is bi-lingual and willing to help with suggestions. Rooms are not large, but clean and quaint. Nice little pool and rooftop terrace. Breakfast is phenomenal, featuring eggs cooked to order.

The room was great and came with a huge bed. Free breakfast every day. A/C worked great and was very clean. The only potential drawback is that it is in a very "lively" part of the city so expect revelry to be going on out on the streets till late in the night.

This hotel is located in a very busy narrow street and is right in the heart of the walled city. Consequently if your room overlooks this street you will have to put up with street noise from street vendors, horse carriages as well as a constant stream of taxis, cars, vans etc. On the upside, you can soak up the atmosphere of the city from your balcony, or ask for an internal room. Breakfast is served in the reception area in a very pleasant open courtyard. There is the usual buffet style selection of hams, cheese, etc. You can also order freshly cooked eggs and bacon which were always cooked to perfection. However, items like butter and jams are all catering-style packaged and more suited to a cheap street cafe than a boutique hotel. My heart sank when we were shown our room which was a mere 2 steps away from the reception desk, and it also opened into the breakfasting area. The door opened immediately against a bed and you had to turn sideways to get in. Storage space was minimal. We had to leave our suitcases (and we’ve got 4) on the floor opened to get to our stuff, as, apart from one small bedside table, there was no other laying-down surface. You need somewhere to put books, papers, iPad, phones, glasses, wallets, keys, etc etc - all the paraphernalia that everyone has. We had to be ultra-tidy! We had a balcony that had space for a small table and 2 chairs. In the room there was only one other chair, used as a prop for all our excess baggage, so really nowhere to sit and relax apart from on the bed. The bathroom was tiny with hardly any turning space. Well, I know someone has to have this room and all of the above is just bearable if you’re just staying for 1 or maybe 2 nights, but we were there for 4 nights. When allocating rooms, such detail as length of stay and type of customer (we are two mid-60s retirees), could be used as a measuring guide. I could have complained, but honestly, to repack and then move suitcases and then unpack again was just too much to contemplate. On a positive note, staff were helpful and friendly with always a welcoming smile. The place is immaculately clean and beds are comfortable with lots of pillows and linens which are changed every day. The pool is very small and there is room for only 4 sun beds, but it is a nice area to chill and relax in considering you are in the heart of the old city. I would recommend this hotel because of its central location and all of the positives I’ve mentioned but make sure you ask for a room on the upper floor. It is good to have all of Cartagena’s wonderful sights, restaurants and bars on the doorstep. .

We enjoyed our stay at Las Carretas. The hotel was clean, our room spacious and the staff amazingly attentive to our needs. We also appreciated their recommendations and help with planning our activities in Cartagena. Beware, the balcony rooms get quite noisy at night, I am not sure if other rooms are like that too. the prime location has its consequences with all the carriages and commotion from the street, but we were so tired every evening though, that it didn’t really bother us in any way. My only downside I would say was the breakfast, I would suggest for the management to build a bigger menu for breakfast. Food was good, but for a vegetarian with somehow limited food options, breakfast wasn’t spectacular unfortunately.
