Excellent hotel. Loved it. Close to restaurants. Secure. Great breakfast. Spacious rooms. Great city views from the roof. Very clean and overall a great place to stay. I would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Book early. Busy place. Love the hotel. Don't miss the roof.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon (wish it had been longer). Our room was bright, airy & clean. The pool was a great size considering it is in a courtyard. Breakfast was delicious, particularly the quinoa granola. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel one night too & the food was beautifully cooked. Couldn't fault the service our entire stay. We were sad to leave this hotel!

The word Ananda means bliss and the hotel is true to its name, we felt absolute bliss staying here. The house is beautiful, but above everything else, the staff is amazing, wonderful people, friendly and ready to help! The restaurant is delicious as well (owned by Carmen from Medellín) - the breakfast was wonderful (try the tropical pancakes). We also got time to enjoy the jacuzzi and the pool area, very peaceful and fun. Thank you Diego and everyone at the Anandá, we hope to come back very very soon!

The Ananda Hotel has very pleasant, helpful staff and looks beguilingly pretty. It is not well managed. When we arrived, the key that resembles a credit card didn't work and neither did the safe. We were then taken to another room which was much less attractive and smelt a bit musty. Its safe didn't work either. The wash-basin was an extraordinary design, plug less and incredibly shallow. Its designer had never thought of using it. The lavatory took at least 25 minutes to re-fill. We found the bathroom exasperating! Breakfast took a long time but the food was carefully and nicely prepared. The staff were so courteous and pleasant that I feel very mean writing this but perhaps they will read it and find a better plumber.

Room Tip: Examine the bathroom before you unpack.

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.
