Staying at Santo Toribio was great. The drive from the airport to the wall city and the hotel is just seven minutes away. We arrived earlier than check in and Maria de Los Angeles and the male receptionist offered us water and offered us to leave our suitcases and use a bathroom to change into more comfortable clothes to start exploring the city. Thet gave us recomendations for restaurants and places to visit. Once we checked into our room we were delighted with the comfort and the cleanliness of the room. Ana the maid sure does a great job keeping the rooms spotless! Yordi the bellman brought our suitcases with great care. The room was very ample and well lighted. The bathroom had great space and the indoor garden gave it a touch of nature within the hotel. The roof terrace was a great spot for the evening breeze and the spa was a great place to end the night after walking the city. The pool is in the inside of the main floor courtyard making if a very quiet and relaxing spot to cool off after an afternoon nap. Each morning we were delighted with the food prepared by Eliana the cook and the variety of fruits in our plate! Kevin the waiter took our breakfast orders and was always ready to pour fresh coffee or orange juice The hotel is centrally located and you can pretty much walk to any where within the wall city. If you want to venture out, the staff at the front desk is very knowledgeable and can give you the names of tour operators or any service you may need. I highly recommend Hotel Santo Toribio. I can not wait to return.

Loved this small hotel. Our room was small but renovated with very comfortable bed with an internal balcony facing the pool. There is terrace on the last floor with seating area and jacuzzi great to relax to read to hang out. This hotel is located in the middle of all major attractions restaurants bar stores at walking distance. For security, we saw everyday at lot of military and policy around all walled city so we were ok walking during night time, still you must be cautious since there is at lot of poverty around the walled city and this was the downside for me to see the contrast but this is south America so it is common. BTW breakfast is included not crazy about it but if you want something out of the menu like arepas just asked for it in advance and they will have for you (nice service and customer service).

We booked this hotel primarily for the central location in the walled city of Cartagena, which was fantastic. Just steps outside the door we were in the thick of things, surrounded by great restaurants and shops to choose from. The hotel itself is a small boutique style with only eight rooms. We booked a standard room and were surprised to find that our room was located within the lobby. We were about four feet from the check-in desk. The inside of the room was VERY small. There weren't any windows minus the one that opened up to the lobby -- but we had to keep the shutters closed, or we would be making eye contact with staff sitting at the check-in desk. The room itself though was very clean and spotless though. The AC worked great, so that was a huge plus with the high temperatures. We spent a lot of time on the roof of the hotel, which has lots of tables and chairs and couches to sit on with beautiful hanging lights. It was quite relaxing and very empty at night, so we had the place to ourselves. There is a small "pool" on the lobby level, but it's super small, it almost seems more like a decorative pond than a swimming pool. And it sits next to the check-in desk and next to the rooms on that level, so there isn't any privacy. Breakfast was included, which was nice, but I ordered the pancakes and they weren't cooked throughly unfortunately, though my husband's waffles he said were perfect. I'd say overall the hotel is very nice and convenient, but if you decide to book... ask for a floor not on the lobby level.

The hotel and staff certainly lived up to all the positive reviews. It is pretty, clean, comfortable and the staff are delightful. Also we felt it was well situated for the historic centre without being in an overwhelmingly busy area. Would love to visit again.
