Reviewed March 18, 2011

I stayed here with a friend and they put us in a room with two double beds that was very large by Cartagena standards. The rooftop pool is small, but although we were not there to hang out on the roof we did enjoy it several hot afternoons. The wifi worked. The breakfast on the roof was nice. Service was great. Don't get the rooms on the nightclub side and you will be happy.

We were in Cartagena for just 3 nights & chose this hotel as it was one of the cheapest with decent reviews. The hotel itself is very cute, the rooms are set around a covered courtyard which made it a little noisy at times. There is a disco next door although it didn't keep us awake, & we were woken up in the morning when other people were up & around. But generally the hotel is so relaxing it didn't bother us.

The location was good - lovely architecture & a short walk to the old town, although the area itself is one of the poorer areas. You can easily walk to Bocagrande along the seafront, & after being to that area I was glad we chose this hotel. The service at the hotel changed depending on who was working, but generally staff were friendly. It isn't particularly touristy - they didn't have a map or much local information but there's a tourist information centre a short walk away. Breakfast is eggs, toast, jam, fruit, juice & coffee brought to your room when requested. You can have your breakfast on the roof terrace which has lovely views over the harbour.

I'd definitely stay at this hotel again if I returned to Cartagena.

We didn't have much time to look and only looked at two properties beforehand (names forgotten) -- the first was inexpensive, but was a dive. The second was outrageously expensive. Hotels in Cartegena are very expensive, so at $70 US this was a good deal and was the nicest room I've stayed at in my Colombia travels. The only criticism was that at 5:30 a.m. music started blasting outside at a very high volume. The design of the hotel does not block street noise well -- but it is very close to the convention center.
