We stayed here while in Cartagena for our niece's wedding. Our family booked the entire hotel. They have an hot tub on the 4th floor that overlooks the ocean (hotel is located right next to the old wall. It is also within the old walled city, so it is an easy walk to all the shopping, restaurants, and history within... More

I got a room with a broken water pipe that kept me up all night. Also the air conditioner barely worked and it was extremely hot the entire time I stayed. All that happened was I got offered another room with the same exact problem. Luckily I had reservations at another hotel for the other half of my stay.

Fantastically situated within the old city of Cartagena. Quite, comfortable and easy to get around. Beautiful decorated, the pools is small and very nice. Our room was huge, spacious and very clean. Staff was very attentive, accommodating and helpful. My breakfast staple was arepas de huevo. Delish!!!

This little hotel is located within the fortified quarters of Old Cartagena right across from Teatro Heredia and very close to many historic landmarks of the city. 눇Location is ideal and hard to beat. The small staff is very attentive and gave their 100% to make us feel comfortable. However, you do notice that they run a short crew; the... More

A great option for a well priced boutique hotel. Fantastic location. Access to full size pool in the other NH in town. Staff was attentive, accommodating and helpful. Luis Fernando was particularly great, catering to our every need for breakfast. Ask for arepas!

Great hotel just inside the wall. Quiet and comfortable for sleeping and easy to get around from there. Lovely welcome drinks were served and the property was clean and well appointed. Small problem with a leaky air conditioning unit which didn't reduce the effectiveness of the AC so no complaints. Cabs were always available and we were a 10 minute... More

The hotel is very well located in a perfect spot inside the "cidade amurallada". The hotel is small and friendly with a perfect match with the Cartagena history. You can fell as you were living many centuries ago. Good breakfast and very polite staff members although some could have a better support for the turist with local tips.

La Merced Royal afforded a comfortable surrounding with very affable staff. Plunge pool and roof top jacuzzi with views over the sea were more than enough to cool off. Well equipped accommodation with delightful breakfast room. Situated within the walled city within walking distance of all amenities but quiet and serene thanks to classic Spanish style atrium.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel and were absolutely amazed. What a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the historic center. Free gourmet breakfast every morning and a friendly staff. On our last day there, our flight wasn't until 11pm at night. Instead of having to carry our luggage with us all day, the hotel was so accommodating... More
