..we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as it was one of the only affordable hotels in Cartagena at this time. The location of the hotel was quite convenient as it was within walking distance of the old town - which is quite lovely. We managed to get a room on the 10th floor with a great view of the old town and the ocean.
But to be honest, AU $70 per night was a bit steep. We were totally ok with the fact the hotel was quite dated, but the shower was pretty much a dribble. There were holes in the bathroom roof, which was made of polystyrene and lifted every time the window was open. The bed was extremely hard as well. The one thing that wasn't the greatest was the breakfast/restaurant. The facilities were very dirty, including the tables and chairs with food scraps and stains in them and both my partner and I had the scrabbled eggs and found egg shells throughout the dish. The wifi was not working in our room for the whole stay which was difficult as we needed to have the Internet for trip planning and bookings.
All this place needs is a little bit of touching up to get the facilities up to scratch and perhaps review their price per night as we did feel this was a bit steep .. Otherwise, the staff were quite helpful and the air conditioning gave relief from the heat..
