I've stayed in this hotel 3 times. It has an ideal location and a great plaza in front. Cartagena is maybe my favorite city in the world, and this hotel puts you in a location to walk around and enjoy. I experienced quite good service and recommend Raphael, one of the bellhops who gave us good touristic advice as well. The buffet breakfast was good and included some unique items like kibbe (Lebanese beef patties). On the downside, the rooms are just average - large, but average, and our phones did not work most of the time, even for room-to-room calls. The thing that left me most upset, however, was the charge for a third adult - SIXTY FIVE DOLLARS - plus tax and breakfast not included! We had an especially good deal, at $115/night including breakfast, but I still found this $65 charge for a person who adds little additional cost for the hotel, to be excessive. I've heard of $10 or $20 but never $65. And then they have the nerve to make the person pay for breakfast. So, this hotel can work if you are less than 3 people and can get a deal of $150 or less, but otherwise there may be better options.
