I am not sure how much other hotels cost in Cartagena but it seemed pricey after the hotels in Panama. Nevertheless, it is in a very good location and is a very beautiful hotel. The staff were friendly, but not very informed. They seemed more interesting in selling tours which did not work for us because we prefer to get "local" flavor and can independently make our way.
We stayed in a 2 flour suite which was very beautiful but very impractical. Having a huge open bathtub in the middle of the living room was attractive but not very useful. We had to constantly go up and down the stairs. There was very little work space for the computer or writing.
Despite all of the issues raised above, I recommend this hotel. If you are staying in the Old City, it is a good place to hang out and sleep.
