This hotel has a number of desirable attributes – great location (everything within the historic district of Cartagena is within walking distance); two elegant and tastefully furnished interior courtyards; and a rooftop pool/solarium/spa (the pool is only some 15 feet long, but in Cartagena’s torrid climate any such amenity is welcome). The personnel were hospitable and helpful. On the night I stayed there, however, I had to deal with a number of annoying problems. The air conditioning in the room I was initially assigned didn’t work, which necessitated a switch to a slightly smaller room. In the new room the air conditioning worked fine, but the shower faucets (which were evidently mislabeled) both yielded lukewarm water at roughly equal temperature. Moreover, Internet access was dodgy the entire time I was there. The breakfast buffet was adequate but nothing special – and this in a country with an abundance of all kinds of tropical fruits. Overall I found the hotel to be overpriced relative to the quality of service provided.
