3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2010

We had a good stay at this hotel in Cartagena...the room was nothing to write home about, but the air conditioning worked which was probably the most important thing for a place in Cartagena. Also, the girl working the front desk was very on the ball and helpful which was nice. The negatives are there though....you must get a room near the back away from the street, because it gets noisy early, late, and often. Also, make sure your room is not in front of the front desk, you will hear the bell going all night and people coming in and out. We had also had a few mosquito issues, but I don't know if that is par for the course in Cartagena. That being said, I can't say it was a bad experience...Cartagena is quite a place to spend a few days!!

I really was not expecting what I got for $60 a night for 3 people! I mean, of course this is not a fancy hotel, but it was a great stay for a historic city center hotel, cheap, clean bedrooms and bathrooms (private ones) and FREE, yes you heard me, FREE Internet access! A great deal and I would totally recommend it if you want to spend your money on other things in Cartagena! :)

Stayed November 2010, traveled with friends
