THIS IS NOT A HOTEL ! This is your basic backpackers B & B except you get your own room and pay dearly for it. It is clean but NOT WORTH HALF THE RIDICULOUS $65 a head. They DO NOT charge by the room but rather by the person, so if you are not alone it is an absurd $130 minimum for a hard double bed in a small room. It is in a bad part of El Centro and above a retail store on the second, third and fourth floor - something they don't tell you. The street noise is VERY loud late into the night and very again very early in the morning. Inside the tile hallways amplify every voice of those entering. Don't expect a good nights sleep. The electricity went out constantly so we had no air-conditioning and at one point had no water. We were told this happens a lot in this part of town and the hotel does not have auxiliary power or sufficient water supply . The staff was very unfriendly except the little cook Evelyn, though breakfast is skimpy. There is NO HOT WATER here. We finally had to move as it was unbearable and way too much money for what you get. NOT RECOMMENDED ! Worth about $25 a night max compared to other Cartagena offerings.
