We booked 5 rooms for a group of friends travelling to Cartagena for a wedding. Booking through Hotels.com, we got a great rate, though some friends paid more because the lowest level rooms were no longer available. Each room was different, and one friend was bummed she got the tiniest room compared to others! The best thing about this hotel... More

I booked this hotel thru Booking at the discounted price of 42,000 COP/night. The next day I received an email saying the actual price of the room was 420,000 COP/night. Apparently, someone left out a zero. Booking informed me that this was the hotel's fault. The Booking portal allows hotel owners to check the price several times before posting and... More

Our stay at Hotel Boutique Las Carretas was everything we could have asked for! The rooms were very clean, comfortable, looked recently renovated and had powerful A/C. Breakfast was amazing and the staff were extremely helpful, giving us recommendations, storing our luggage, calling us taxis, and more. The location is probably one of the best within the walled city, within... More

This place is clean and quite with a nice little pool on the top floor. We had friends stay at nearby hotels at roughly the same rates. We considered this the best one. Breakfast and staff were very good and attentive. It is quieter than nearby hotels due to the way it is designed and offset from the street. The... More

This is the hotel where you want to stay in El Centro. It's on the edge of the old city center near the clock tower. Unless you plan on spending all of your time in the old city of Cartagena, taxis and getting around can be a challenge. This hotel is close enough to the walls that you can easily... More

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke great English. Room was huge and didn't cost much. King size bed and large walk-in shower. Breakfast was delicious and included. Roof terrace was cosy but a really nice place to relax at the end of the day, and a small but refreshing pool. Other reviewers have mentioned noise - there is... More

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...
