This is a clean quiet hotel in Baca Grande in the center of a well to do area with good restaurants, botique shops near the historical city. $2.50 taxi ride to historical area. A very good breakfast eggs cooked to order and fresh fruit.

When booking the room make sure they give you an appropriate room, with window and ventilation We got a bad experience and had to cancell our stay and back home. Lucky we live not too far but have to shorten our trip.

Honestly, this is a great budget hotel. Location is nice (right across the street from waffles and crepes, and a 24h mcdonalds), just few blocks away from the beach. You can walk to walled city in about 15-20 mins or take a 5 min cab. People working there were very friendly, although the English at the front desk was not...

Hello all, got back from Cartagena last week and spent 3 nights here. Originally I wanted to stay at a Bocagrande hotel right on the beach, but as my trip got closer I couldn't really afford the extra money to spend & decided to stay here, just one block from the beach and save roughly $75 per night compared to...

A nice and simple Hotel. Staff is gentle and the hotel very clean. 1 block away from the beach and 15-20 min by walk to the city center (and 5 by taxi). I always prefer staying in the city centers, but in Bocagrande there are a lot of bars, restaurants, souvenir shops and beaches, so at the end, I loved...

This is a nice and small hotel with a very friendly and helpfull staff. Simple but good breakfast and very well located within Bocagrande. A very good option if you are not going to stay within the walled city.

I chose the Hotel San Martin in Cartagena based on reviews from others. I was concerned about the hotel's location, but it is in the heart of small business and good residential areas. It's just a block from the beach. I walked to the Centro, the old walled city, and the docks where the boats leave for the islands, many...

We loved this place: lovely staff, a decent breakfast, a cheap dinner, nice and clean rooms and a very nice terrace for people watching. It has a very good location, close to the beach and to great restaurants. From there to the walled city would cost you only 6.000 COP and take 5-10 minutes. We really appreciated our stay at...

Close to what you would expect from a good business hotel in the US. Needed amenities like well-appointed rooms, satisfying free breakfast, WiFi, and a very accommodating staff. Close to excellent restaurants. A quick taxi ride to the airport.

We stayed here over New Year, so prices were higher than usual for the holiday season, but we enjoyed our stay. The reception staff were very helpful and got on the ohone straight away to arrange what we wanted. Big rooms, quiet AC, clean bathrooms with hot showers and great accessto the internet from anywhere. Breakfast was a buffet and...
