The Good: location, nearby amenities, food in outdoor restaurant was tasty; the free breakfast selections were better than average; the male breakfast server was great; decent A/C Shortcomings and deal-breakers: wandering insects in room; open air design of building allowed constant noise (not an overstatement) from the street, the reception area and from the room floor; bathroom fan squeaked &...

We were looking for a clean and cheap alternative for a short stay (6 hours: 13 to 19) prior to our flight back home and came across this location. For what we paid, this place met our needs. It was clean, with good AC, WI-FI, and great shower. However, based on the room we got, we wouldn’t recommend this hotel...

Note we did not go to the hotel, just the outside restaurant. We went two times, I thought it was that good. The price you pay for food and drinks to the portions is wonderful! I got a mug size mojito and husband had pina colada. For food I had Chicken Alfredo, wow it was amazing! The 2nd tiem around...

Some of the staff was nice but I have to say he overall experience was pretty mediocre. With many options in cartagena I would recommend to keep searching and go somewhere else. I won't cover everything but here are some quick notes: - very basic room, no safe, no furniture actually... and bad smell from lack of ventilation - lack...

Look, for rooms, you get what you pay for--basic, clean and safe! Great location, bit noisy. Out door sittings and cafe, small lobby, friendly service and good food! But, for 15,000 pesos ($ 5 bucks!!!) Full breakfast Buffett ... Even walk in visitors can pay and enjoy!

I arrived around 2pm and was immediately checked-in. The staff is very friendly and helped me get settled in my room. My room came with two comfortable beds, refrigerator with mini-bar, great air condition, and good WiFi signal. I was hungry from my long trip, so the restaurant downstairs with outdoor seating was very convenient and reasonably priced. The plus...

Great property. Very colorful and vibrant hotel where a lot of Colombians stay. Extremely clean with a great breakfast buffet included in the price. You also can't beat the location on the main strip in Bocagrande- just a short cab ride or 15-minute walk to the old town in Cartagena. Also, they have a great handicap accessible room on the...
