The hotel is located within the walls of the old city. The room was very clean and the ac was cold. My husband and I found the staff wonderful. Its located near exito a grocery store. We purchased wine and water and kept it in the hotel refrigerator. The hotel has a nice pool in the courtyard and a jacuzzi on the roof. I highly recommend this hotel for couples that are budget conscious.

Booked this hotel on the recommendation of a friend. The room was on the small side but adequate and peaceful. That is probably the price you pay for a good location in the old town. The staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant and made our stay very enjoyable. I would definitely go back.

Even though the entire city was without water for the first day and a half of our stay, the hotel went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The entire staff was exceptionally friendly and the location cannot be beat. The rooms were nice and the breakfast was very good.

The pluses: it is well-located in the walled city, and the little pool in the courtyard and rooftop jacuzzi are most welcome places to cool off after exploring the old town.

Minuses: Though we had a reservation and a confirmation that said we were confirmed and didn't need to contact the hotel to reconfirm, a couple of weeks later the Casa Gloria sent an email saying that if we didn't reconfirm within 72 hours they would cancel our reservation. Then, once our trip was underway, the manager sent an email saying that we needed to call in our credit card info to keep our reservation. I called the hotel from Bogota -- not such an easy task in another country -- two times before I was able to leave the number. I would have much preferred that they require payment upon booking rather than trouble us three times over this booking.

Our room was small but the air conditioner worked well. The mattress was covered first with a plastic sheet, then a cotton one, which made the bed very warm. Neither sheet stayed on the bed through the night, however, popping off at the corners and exposing the mattress.

The listing in Trip Advisor says, "A complimentary manager's reception is offered in the afternoon each day." This is nonexistent. We think what is meant is that the reception area is manned by someone, complimentarily.

The breakfast is also disappointing, consisting of an arepa, fake orange juice, coffee, fruit, and a slice of lunch meat or a fried egg.

All in all, this was the least nice of our three hotels in Colombia.

I stumbled upon Hotel Casa Gloria in the Old City by luck, and I spent one week there during the Christmas season. I could not be more pleased with the Hotel and its staff. The place looks like a small tropical paradise with lush garden and pool welcoming us in the courtyard. The rooms and bathrooms are kept super clean and everything was in working order. The hotel felt very safe (the Old City is equally very safe). The staff was so nice and helpful with plenty of great recommendations. And everything within the Old City is no more than a 15 minute walk from the hotel. Gloria herself was always ready to assist guests and point us in the right direction for a memorable stay. Highly recommended.

Me and my wife and 2 teenagers stayed 3 nights. This is a nice and quiet hotel in cental old town. But there where a few things makes me lower my marks. The main issue was the breakfast, a few slices of fruit, an arepa and some cheap juice from the supermarket. And this in a city where it is hard to avoid fresh homemaid juices and loads of fresh fruit. Another minor flaw was that the ac in the kids room was just on or off without ability to set the desired temp.

Intimate boutique hotel, recently renovated with local flavor. It's in a perfect location, a little off from the overly-tourist part of town (but everything in Cartagena is walking distance). Great to have breakfast by the pool in the morning or a drink on the rooftop terrace in the evening. The rooms aren't overly elaborate but comfortable and well decorated.
