As soon as my husband and I entered this charming hotel we were smitten. The lovely and accommodating staff, greeted us with a treat of refreshing fresh fruit juice, and got us settled in right away. On the way to our room we were pleased with the classic, rustic decor. It was tranquil and serene, though right outside the doors the streets of Cartagena bustled. If we hadn’t planned to do so much on our quick stay, we would have easily lounged the days away after breakfast (which was included and wonderful!) by the poolside or in our very comfortable bedroom. We walked just about everywhere. Restaurants, shops, bars all were very close. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! If I may double back... I want to emphasize just how amazing the staff was, once more. Thanks to you all for making our stay so enjoyable!

We stayed here for three nights on a weekend escape. I’ve been to Cartagena many times but this was our first stay here. We stayed in their nicest suite. Hotel has a restoration hardware decor aesthetic- a lovely open air 2nd floor common lounge with a breeze and comfortable seating - nice to grab a gelato at Tramonti and sit there to enjoy it. Wish the wifi were better. There is also a small rooftop plunge pool which can’t compare to the pools of some of the other bigger old town hotels, but it’s something at least (quite hot and sunny up there, so not very refreshing). The old town is not really about swimming anyway. Our room was very nice, however, I didn’t like the housekeeping: my feet got dirty from the floors, the maid moved our stuff constantly (unplugging charging cables and putting things we left on nightstands in drawers, moving my shoes across the room into my husbands’ closet, putting my makeup bag under the sink- I honestly felt she was hoping we would not realize some of this stuff and leave things behind). Also they would congregate at the service closet right outside our room and talk - once waking us from an afternoon nap and definitely leaving us feeling we had no privacy. There was a pretty balcony but KFC and a nightclub across from it so we preferred the common lounge. I have a lot of minor complaints but really the room was lovely in every other way. Nice design, nice decor, functional, comfortable. We had breakfast the first day at the hotel but the coffee was awful and it was slow/awkward service so the next two days we went out to a great coffee bar with excellent food called Epoca a two second walk away. Honestly if they just had a nespresso machine at the hotel they could solve that problem. Café colado is unacceptable. Overall a good experience and I would consider going back but it would not be my first choice in the old town as there were many quirks.
