My boyfriend and I spent 7 weeks traveling through South America, and this was one our favorite hotels. The building itself, like Cartagena itself, which I fell in love with, is very old and full of character. Built around a central courtyard, the hotel has only a few rooms, which retain the old (original?) clover- shaped interior windows for ventilation. The beds in the double rooms are huge, and the showers are the best cold showers you'll ever take. (They're not truly cold, because the water is warmed by the ambient air temp, which is so hot you'll want a cool shower. Believe me. I'm cold natured and love nothing more than a hot shower, but did not miss them in Cartagena.)
Don't be misled by the "jacuzzi" on the rooftop patio. It is actually a cold-water plunge pool, and provided delicious relief as I sat up there sunbathing, enjoying the view of the water and the gleaming towers of the new city. You can also buy beer, drinks and snacks from the small kitchen. Breakfast is included as well, and the service is very friendly and helpful.
We loved it here.
