We stayed here one week. Small room, private bathroom with aircon for just 75.000 COP: really good deal.

Everyday we found clean sheets on our bed and fresh towels in the bathroom. The hotel is in the middle of Getsemani and just 10 mins walk to the old town.

There is no breakfast included, but freshly baked bread, fruit and other things can all be bought within 5 mins walking distance.

Would surely recommand staying here. We did hear some loud music one night and one early morning from the nextdoor community centre. But that's really the only thing I could complain about.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled as a couple

General impression: clean, good air conditioning and good location (5mins from the center). However, there was no Internet in the rooms, you had to go to the lobby where dozens of mosquitos await and also the walls were really thin so the nights tended to be really loud.
Since it was pretty cheap though, I guess you need to accept the cons.

I was confused by the split reviews on this hotel, but after 1 night here I understand. If you're looking for a romantic luxury old-world hotel, as is now common all over old Cartagena, then this is not the place. If you're looking for a really good value, security, cleanliness, and a fairly quiet night's sleep then this is your place. I was in room 116 which was very close to the lobby where you will hear lots of activities even at night so if you need a quieter space make sure you ask for something further back. Also note that my room had no exterior windows so there was no natural light, but that also added to the room's security. In summary, if you're an experienced traveler and value clean, safe, functional rooms then you'll love the value of this place. If you're a new traveler and/or are looking for romantic Cartagena then this is definitely not the place for you!

Room Tip: Ask for a room further back in the hotel. Also note that there's an evangelical church next door so Sat night and Sun morning you'll hear plenty of music and other noises.

This is a good hotel,with free wifi .Has air condition , is clean & centrally located.What more do you want for the money? They change your sheets & towels every day.There are dozens of restaurants within a square block.All the streets are beautiful in Cartagena,full of life!!!.
If you are looking for a resort hotel,don't come to Cartagena.

Excellent value for money, good location - walking distance to clock tower. Nice staff! Would recommend. Good wifi! Did not try breakfast but heard its good. One of the cheapest around this area for what you get - enjoy.
