When I decided to go to Cartagena I search for a boutique hotel. First mistake, since nowadays seams like in many places they think that a small hotel is necesaraley a "boutique" hotel.
I reserved the best accomodation, a very expensive suite for colombian standars, but I thought it was worth it from what i saw on the webpage. It was very promising. Second mistake.
The location and the old house with patio are perfect, but what they dont tell you is that nextdoors there is a hotel that hosts outdoors parties on weekends, therefore you can´t even think on sleeping before the party is over.
The interior design is unimaginative. Breakfast is very poor and pretentious.
The staff is very nice but none of them can make any decition. Small hotel and no manager on site to manage.
Needless to say that when on the second day I saw a second party coming next door I run away (after having to pay that night that I was not staying, late check out.....)
