Really good location and nice apartment, ruined by the unnecessary long check-in and rude front desk guy. Private room was listed on airbnb (which I take seriously). We arrived, he let us in room and when i was coming out of shower still in towels, the guy comes back again to make us count EVERY single item in the apartment including spoons, plates, cups, etc. And then sign to say we weren't stealing anything. Pretty annoying and long when all you wanna do is relax in the place you're paying for. Not a single hotel, hostal, or airbnb had made me do something like this before. And I travel a lot.
Arriving in Cartagena with no reservation I looked at at least a dozen places to stay before deciding on hotel Don Miguel. The location is perfect! Right on the main street of the old city within walking distance of so many attractions. The room is very simple but clean and the bed is comfortable. The air conditioner works quietly and efficiently and the wi-fi in the room is great. The community kitchen has everything you could need! I used the blender to make my fruit smoothies in the morning. While the staff does not speak english, they are very friendly and try very hard to be helpful. I looked at places that cost considerably more and offered much less.
Stayed at the Don Miguel for 4 days and 3 nights. It is an inexpensive but comfortable place to stay in. Located perfectly on Badillo, a walk away from everything; restaurants, places of interest etc.
The staff at the hostel were wonderful. They were very friendly and made sure we were comfortable and were well taken care of.
The room wasn't big by any means but the air conditioning worked well, the bathroom was clean, the bed was comfortable and had daily room service.
Overall, it's a great place to stay if you're a budget traveler that wants a clean and comfortable room in a safe area that is in walking distance of all the sights and sounds in the old city and has a friendly staff.
@Don Miguel, Thanks ...
