“Just awesome!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

I love this hotel! You don't need to pay a ton of money to have the best and this place offers you the best for a reasonable price.
The staff is very nice and they all speak english. Room was very clean. It's not noisy at night. The bed is very comfortable. Nice shower! Amazing breakfast! I will definitely go back here!

We stayed in room 204. Small, but really nice designed. Tiles on floor were beautiful, and the wood beam ceiling was great. Staff and breakfast were good, but nothing special. I would stay here again for the character and location. It was in a quiet area of Cartegena.

However, we did have an unpleasant experience during the reservation process. We had done the reservation over email, instead of through booking.com. And a week before we got there, they wanted to boot us out the last night of our 3 night stay, due to some glitch on their side. I said "no, we are there with other folks and don't want to move". The person, Paola, asked us three more time if we could move. It was getting very frustrating. Finely, I had to word a pretty strong email that we don't want to move ... for various reasons. Anyhow, just be aware.

Very clean rooms. Quiet neighborhood. Decent breakfast although not spectacular. Friendly staff although their helpfulness and motivation varied. Nice courtyard. Easy walking distance to most of the old city.

Totally enjoyed our stay, great accommodations, breakfast included and professional helpful staff.
Would definitely recommend and stay here on a future visit. Location is great just two minutes to the square, lots of excellent restaurants, english was not a problem. You can take a ride in a horse drawn Caleche, short walk to the beach.

Room Tip: We experienced two different rooms and both were great, ask for one with a outside patio. Breakfast...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this boutique hotel. I've always maintained it is the people that make a place and the staff at this hotel were friendly and helpful always. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast each morning with lots of coffee. What we particularly liked was the quiet location inside the wall and yet easy walking distance to all the wonderful plazas etc in the city. It was also close walking distance to the Hop on and Off bus. We highly recommend this place.

Stayed for 3 nights in November. It is a beautiful building with comfotable rooms well located in the centre of this beautiful town. Excellent breakfast served by cheerful staff. Within walking distance of the sea wall and many excellent and reasonable restaurants.

We were very excited to check into this hotel – lovely waterfall, nice sitting areas. However, it feel flat quickly.

Pros:
-Great location
-Friendly staff
-Free breakfast
-Pretty courtyards
-Fridge in room

Negatives:
-Housekeeping stole or threw away my face moisturizer
-Laundry was really expensive – 75,000 COP for three smallish bags
-Staff charged us 20,000 COP more for a boat trip to Isla del Rosario than others on our boat paid
-They messed up our shuttle reservation on Christmas Day, and we ended up waiting around for 2 hours extra because of their mistake.
