I went to Colombia to celebrate my birthday and I chose Cartagena for this date. The hotel is in a mansion, in a very pleasant street and walking distance from the old city wall. Very safe to walk. The hotel staff are very friendly and professional. I loved them all. Gregoria, Juliete, Yaudis and Gissele. The guys that works overnight too. My stay at the hotel and in Cartagena was wonderful. I will be back soon. Muchas gracias por todo. Muy amable.

My daughter and I checked in on Christmas Eve. We took a quick shower and quickly found out there was no hot water and the attached to the wall hair dryer didn't work. We told the front desk and someone came up and looked at our shower and sure enough, the water heater was broken as well as the hair dryer. They told us it would be fixed but they didn't know when because it was Christmas. Well, it was also Christmas for us. In the hospitality business, there are no holidays in my opinion. And, why wasn't this checked before? We stayed that night and found out that there were no blankets in the room either. There were only 5 guests in the hotel, yet there was no time to help us. However, the staff did manage to put on a Christmas Eve dinner complete with loud music until around 11 PM. One more thing - although advertised as having a bar/lounge, there wasn't one. We went for a walk on Christmas, returned at 3 PM and our room had not been cleaned, the hot water and hair dryer had not been repaired, no blankets showed up as well as no hangers. We decided to check out and find a better place. We agreed to pay for two nights and to cancel the other 5 nights. They did not refund any money. Do not stay here.

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago when the humidity was 84% and at the height of the afternoon it was almost 90° outside. Every hostel I stayed at all over colombia had air-conditioning and this was supposed to be my splurge on my way out of town. I flipped on the AC and gave it a while to kick in -only to arrive to my room hours later and realize it didn’t actually work. The management weren’t rude, but they also weren’t ecstatic to help me find a solution. He said I could get my room refunded and stay somewhere else but at that point it was 10 o’clock at night. I opted to just suck it up, he offered me a fan. Ive contacted management several times to reimburse part of my stay and no one is getting back to me. On top of it, the audacity of the staff the next morning to charge me for a couple of waters and a beer that I had out of the "mini bar". Also, sidenote that the minibar has no indication that the waters and the beers aren’t free- no sign, no pricing. The fact that they literally expected me to pay for a couple of waters and a beer after that s- show was beyond me. I'm sure this could be a cute place to stay with AC - but didnt like how this has been handled.

Great bed and breakfast in a historic home. As independent travelers, we loved the fact that this is not a sterile, hotel room but rather a home where we felt like a welcome family member. A real taste of Colombia in a residential neighborhood right near the Old City. We stayed for 2 nights in a room with a balcony toward the sea and came back to spend our final night in Cartagena in. Double room. Each room is unique, very clean and comfortable. The home is filled with antiques and we felt transported back in time. Breakfast was excellent. We especially enjoyed the neighborhood outside the hustle of the Old City. There’s a grocery store, pharmacy and restaurant options all nearby. The owners were wonderful, and gave us many excellent recommendations. Would definitely return.

NI CASTILLO, NI BOUTIQUE, NI HOTEL !! Estuvimos por 10 dias en ese maravilloso pais que es Colombia. Compramos un paquete que ademas de incluir todos los vuelo ( internac y domesticos), include los hoteles por 3 noches en cada ciudad que visitamos, Bogota, Medellin y Cartagena. Todo fue excellente en cada lugar hasta que llegamos en la noche a este hotel en Cartagena. Para empezar por cuestiones de seguridad, para salir o entrar hay que llamar a alguien para que abra y cierre la reja de la casa. El cuarto asignado a nuestra reservacion era super pequeno, si hubiera podido colocarme en el centro del cuarto podia con las menos extendidas tocar ambas paredes, cosa que no fue posible debido a los muebles que ocupaban el 95% del espacio. Para llegar aqui habia que subir una escalera a la interperie atravez del patio que no tenia mas de medio metro de ancho. Le dije a mi esposa ni desempaques que por no faster un poco mas voy a pasar aqui los peores dias de mi vida. Reservamos en el Hyatt Regency por 315.00 las 3 noches y fue lo mejor que hicimos. No pretendo que Ines Maria nos devuelva un centimo de la reservacion, y se que no lo hara, pero si, quiero dejarle saber a todos de esta mala experiencia y que no se dejen confundir de un nombre extravagante o de unas lindas fotos tomadas quien sabe cuando, porque todo parece ser de dos siglos atras sin nunca haber sido remodelado. Por favor dejen de llamar hotel a una casa grande parapeteada para ser usada como hotel. Si hay fantasmas o no en las noches se lo debo pues solo estuve ahi unos 5 minutos. NI CASTILLO, NI BOUTIQUE, NI HOTEL !! We were for 10 days in that wonderful country that is Colombia. We bought a package that also includes all flights (internac and domestic), including hotels for 3 nights in each city we visited, Bogota, Medellin and Cartagena. Everything was excellent in each place until we arrived at this hotel in Cartagena at night. To start we guest that for security issues, to get out or enter you have to call someone to open and close the gate of the house. The room assigned to our reservation was super small, if I could have placed myself in the center of the room with my arm extended I can touch both walls, which was not possible due to the furniture that occupied 95% of the space. To get here you had to climb thru a staircase from the patio that was not more than half a meter wide. I told my wife, don't unpacks, I will not spend here the worst days of my life. We booked at the Hyatt Regency for 315.00 all 3 nights and it was the best we did. I do not pretend that Ines Maria returns a cent of the reservation, and I know she will not, but yes, I want to let everyone know about this bad experience and not to be confused by an extravagance name or some pretty photos taken who knows when, because everything seems to be two centuries ago without ever being remodeled. Please stop calling a large house HOTEL. This is nothing out than a creepy old uncomfortable place for anyone on vacation. If there are ghost or not at night I owe it to you because I was only there for about 5 minutes.

Sr Jorge lo sentimos mucho por su experiencia, primera vez que tenemos un comentario la verdad ireal , porque mi Senor la propiedad esta totalmente restaurada y mantenida , y poseemos habitaciones comodas como las fotos indican , estas son un as fotos tan reales que las tomo yo misma para no enganar a nuestros futuros huespedes y se notan en la resolucion y luz prefiero realidad. acerca al entrar a la casa es el estilo no podemos tener las puertas de la reja abierta, la verdad es colombia apesar que el barrio el cabrero es estrato 5, no tenemos indicios de delincuencia ;Le recuerdo si usted hubiese cancelado un poco mas hubiese obtenido una suit TOMO UN PROMOCION, no se cual es la intension suya pero nunca acostumbro ha esto , pero es bastante injusto y tengo que explicar un poco para que futuros huespedes saquen conclusion y la mayoria de los comentarios hace juzgamiento. solo me resta nuevamente decirle , lo siento y me alegra que haya encontrado un hotel a su gusto. Felicidades. cordialmente. Ines Maria Roberts.

The best thing about this hotel was the staff. Everyone is super friendly and helpful and the breakfast every morning was delicious. The pool is a nice added touch after a long, hot day of walking around. The location is pretty good too. It is a couple minute walk from the City Sightseeing Bus Stop (which will take you all around the area), it's about a 10 minute, at most, walk into the Walled City, and about 7 minutes by taxi from the airport. I really loved this little hotel that has a ton of charm.

We stayed here for two nights in August, the staff could not have been more lovely, always eager to help with any requests. The rooms were great with a delightful bathroom and included a small fridge too, not many did on our trip in Colombia, so it was an unexpected addition. The house itself is just stunning with many terraces and beautiful views, plus hammocks to relax in. Great little welcoming pool open until 10pm, so cool to be swimming there in the dark with the pool lights on. Nobody seems to mention that you also have use of the kitchen, we only used it once for a snacky meal, but others did seem to use it for cooking small meals. Would I stay here again? Without a doubt, wish I was back there now!!☺️

We just got back from several days at the lovely Boutique Castillo Ines Maria in Cartagena. We'd been looking forward to our stay here based on the photos, but the reality surpassed our expectations. The colonial house is gorgeous, full of charm and beauty with an impressive main entrance. The tiled pool area, the rooftop terrace and hammock were lovely spots to spend the evenings in the breeze from nearby Marbella Beach. Our room itself was quaint and cozy...the bed was comfortable, and the staff did a marvelous job at keeping it clean and inviting. With only a handful of guest rooms, the hotel was charming, quiet and peaceful. Every morning one of the housekeepers/cook served amazing breakfasts to order, allowing guests to dine outside in the gorgeous tiled terrace (think home-made arepas stuffed with queso and meat, and other delicious Colombian delicacies). The location of the hotel was amazing. Literally across the street was a cute beach with cabanas and local children enjoying themselves in the sea. In addition, it was a mere minutes walk to the old walled city (and given the close proximity to both the beach and the historical center, there was never a shortage of cabs that you could easily hail from right outside the front gate). The best part of our stay was hands down the beautiful, accommodating staff. Every single individual was so friendly and warm, and made us feel extremely welcomed and attended to our any need or ask. Maria, one of the hotel managers, was exceptional and took care of our every need. We didn't speak Spanish, and the staff were equipped with Google translate on various devices in order to best serve us. We couldn't say more wonderful things about this team and our time spent at the Hotel Ines Maria. If and when we return to Cartagena, we will be staying here again without a doubt.
