What a beautiful hotel, very conveniently located and with great amenities. Rooms are very modern, although the property is a very old house. We stayed only one night but for sure will try to stay again here when returning to Cartagena. We had a room next to the courtyard and it was way too noisy, so next time we'll look for a room in a more secluded place. The hotel has three floors so there's plenty to chose from. It has several terraces and rooftops which give great views of the Caribbean and the city. Location-wise, on a quieter street of the old city so that's a plus, although the city itself can be walked from top to bottom in 15 minutes, so everything is close by. Price-wise, I'd say fair, as Cartagena is as expensive as New York, so paying less than US$300 a night in a property like this can be seen as a "bargain". The room we had was big and my wife loved the bath room. It was on the ground floor and the ceilings were 15 ft tall. The bathroom had an amazing shower (no tub, which is not uncommon here). AC worked fine and had to leave on during the night to mask the outside noise. We have stayed in many hotels in Cartagena and this one is in the top of our list, highly recommended.

Room Tip: Away from the courtyard/restaurant

Just spent a week at the Ananda. Nicely decorated, blend of colonial and contemporary. Beautiful courtyard, rooftop terrace with cool jacuzzi, small pool downstairs with a few lounge chairs - great for a siesta after morning walks around the old town. The concierge staff have decent English and were helpful with beach visits, restaurant reservations etc. The wait staff were delightful - very little English but warm, welcoming, attentive. Room was very large with an exceptionally comfortable king bed and little terrace, jacuzzi tub, A/C and fans. Full breakfast included - coffee was just OK (surprisingly), eggs and fresh fruit were quite good. Attracts very interesting guests from all around the world. Just a great stay all around. Will definitely go back.

We stayed at The Ananda Hotel in Cartegena for two nights. The hotel is beautiful and the service is great. You can tell that the staff really believe in the hotel and this reflects in their superb restaurant and excellent food. We had one of our best meals in Colombia here and after staying in the Bantu Hotel Cartegena the night before we can hands down say that this hotel tops it on every level we experienced. I highly recommend this hotel.
Fantastic - keep up the good service.

This is a real nice hotel, well designed .preety rooms unless suffer from humidity and get bad smell
Due to the smell,,,we were upgrated and enjoyed great time in a luxary room., the small pool, terraces,,,all give an added value and nice ambiance
The only disadvantage for us was ,they hardly speak english,,,,so it made our life more complicated,,,but besides,,,,they tried to fulfill our requests

4 nights in this beautifully renovated colonial. Got upgraded to the mezzanine room 201. Lieneker, front desk, even came to find us when our driver couldn't locate the hotel! Sunset view from the rooftop terrace, very cool. Location on quiet street away from the hubbub nice. Breakfast each morning in the courtyard cleverly constructed over the ancient brick water cistern was delightful. Superb service. Cartagena is a joy, and Ananda made it a total pleasure. Oh, and the restaurant Carmen? Outstanding. Separate review. Thank you Ignacio, Eduardo, Andy and the smiling lady server at breakfast.
