“Great location, beautiful and comfortable”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We stayed for five nights while in town for a friend's wedding. We loved the hotel, and would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat. The hotel itself is lovely and an excellent location--right in the heart of the old city, exactly where you want to be. The overall small size felt nice and intimate. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a nice bed, nice shower, very strong A/C and great WiFi. Small safes in the rooms for passports/valuables. The breakfast is good. There is no pool, but there is a beautiful roof deck with great views, comfortable seating and an outdoor shower. The staff was universally helpful and kind. We loved it, and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Our room on the fourth floor, facing the back, was very quiet. I imagine the street-facing rooms are...

This is a nice small hotel located in the heart of Cartagena. It's only a 5 minute walk to the wall to watch the sun go down. It's also nicely situated close to all the main attractions of the old city. The hotel staff is nice and courteous. The room was a decent size with a great shower (not that you spend that much time in your room) and the bed was decently comfortable. You'd be hard pressed to find a comparable hotel at a comparable price.

Room Tip: Try to get a room off of the main lobby which can be a bit loud at night.

This hotel is romantic, and it is situated right in the middle of the very romantic old walled city of Cartagena. Taxis may have trouble finding it, but let them know it is near the Cathedral.

We loved the whitewashed walls and ceilings incorporating many of the elements of the original, historical structure into a modern design, which has a very pleasing aesthetic. The hotel feels trendy and chic, with bright orange colors scattered throughout. We also found there were a number of areas the hotel could improve. We have listed the pros and cons below.

Pros:
Location, location, location
Excellent service
Great staff
Trendy
Spacious rooms
Amazing luxury shower with rain shower head
Huge TVs in the rooms with DirectTV
Great AC
Soft toilet paper
High quality bath towels and soaps/shampoos
Reasonable price for Cartagena's old city
Free and good WIFI
Rooms smell clean
Easy-to-use safe

Cons:
Some cleanliness issues (linens had stains; replacement linens also had stains)
Minor maintenance issues (some of the orange couch pillows appeared moldy)
Beds were uncomfortable
Very small toilet area
Disappointing breakfast
Few amenities (no fitness room, no pool, very small sun deck)
Very little table-top/desk space

All things considered, we recommend this hotel to fellow travelers.

Everything about this place was good to great-- nice breakfast in the morning, great staff, beautiful view from the roof deck, fantastic location in the heart of the walled city.
Also-- DirecTV was a plus and the wireless internet was very usable.
Would certainly stay here again.

Located in the middle of the old town you will find this cosy little hotel with excellent service and a very wellcomming attitude. Everything is within reach. They upgraded us and we had our own terrace on the top floor - super stay.

I was very surprised by our recent stay at Delirio especially given the stellar reviews. We stayed at Delirio for 4 nights during our honeymoon in Cartagena. We picked it for it's location, in the heart of the old city! From day 1, we have some major issues with our room. We decided to go with Delirio even though there were several comparable options that were less expensive. The standard room they gave us was very small which was not a huge issue but a little disappointing. We had issues with the TV working which the staff tried to explain as a signal issue (which it definitely was not!) It seemed as though the staff had excuses for every issue we had. The largest issue I had with our stay is the fact that every evening around 7pm, there was no hot water! That is a major issue for a "4-star hotel" that charges >$150/night! The staff finally changed our room on the 2 day to a room with slightly larger ceilings which helped but even then, the second room had a very distinctive smell of sewage!

In terms of the staff, Alexa was very nice and gave us some good recommendations. I think that for the types of issues we were having, the management should have gotten involved. We definitely did not feel as though our concerns were really taken to heart. We had a wonderful time in Cartagena but will not be recommending Delirio to any of our friends.
