“Well mentained”
Reviewed September 13, 2008

Nice location, right in the center of everything (though i guess everything is in the center in Santa Marta). I have stayed two nights on the different occasions but i believe they expected me back so they didn't give away my room for the entire time i was away (about 7 days). They had a storage room so it's pretty safe to leave your luggage there.
Hotel is very nice and well mentained, but i have to agree with a previos review that bed and pillows were pretty hard so i slept on the bed in my own sleeping beg.
Breakfast was fantastic and the personel very helpful.
I didn't have problems with bedbugs though i saw a huge cockroach in my bathroom. Needless to say that after 5 days in South America you get used to them and don't pay attention. So i wouldn't say it was something extraordinary.

Stayed August 2008

This hotel is in a good location, not far from Parque Bolivar and the beach. It has colonial charm and a good atmosphere. However, there are some problems:
*We got covered in insect bites. Not sure if they were bedbugs or mosquitoes. Most likely the former, since I did not see many mosquitoes and we had more than 20 bites each.
*Beds uncomfortable and fitted sheets always coming off.
*No hot water (although not much of an issue with the Santa Marta heat).

We told the owner / manager about the bugs and he just laughed. Was not in the least apologetic or helpful.

Breakfast was okay. 1hr free internet access per night was good.

$33 for a double room with bath and fan.
