My Wife and I stayed here for two nights at the end of January 2014. The price was great at COP$196,214 (US$103) which included taxes, but along with the lobby being located on the 16th floor without much signage which was confusing, it was the smallest Hampton room we've ever seen. The bathroom is quite small too, and because of the out-of-level shower floor, the shower door would only open half-way before coming to a glass-on-tile screeching stop.
Wi-fi worked well, but management has the odd practice of changing the password every morning causing more effort for the guests who use it.
The hotel is located a block from the beach. The Old City is ten minutes away by taxi and there are always plenty available in front of the hotel.
The breakfast was typical Hampton fare: fruit, breads, yogurt (strawberry only as usual), milk, and cereal, scrambled eggs, etc., except that THE COFFEE IS INSTANT COFFEE THAT SQUIRTS OUT OF A PUSH-BUTTON MACHINE! Wow!, we didn't see this coming! Here we are in columbia, the third-largest coffee producing country in the world and the coffee tastes like Folger's coffee crystals! So we sat at breakfast on the 16th floor with a commanding view of the city of Cartagena while sipping on…... wait for it…... INSTANT COFFEE!
