I will definitely stay again at the Sonesta. Location is excellent. Short cab ride to the Buenavista mall. Walking distance (one block) to a catholic church. Cabs always available. The staff will help you making fare arrangements with cab drivers. Cabs do not use a meter, so fares are somehow open to negotiations. Hotel facilities are in a good condition....

My girlfriend and I only stayed at this hotel for one night but could easily have stayed longer. The hotel is located quite far from the city center but a bit outside the northern part of the city (6000 COP to the Buena Vista mall). You are welcomed by nice hotel staff who makes the check-in easy. The lobby is,...

We were on the edge of Barranquilla with a short taxi ride to the large mall of Barranquilla. The Sonesta hotel was a friendly place with modern amenities. The room was spacious and the shower big enough for a party! Hotel staff were very friendly, although not many could speak fluent enough English to have a conversation. Luckily there were...

We got a pretty cheap 3 to 4 star rate and that's exactly how it felt. Sonesta's five stars shine dimly behind an, although hygienic, slightly scrappy and careless cleaning in bathroom. There's a nightclub somewhere in the same building and from our room on the fifth floor the thumping base was both heard and felt, though not too bad...
