we stayed in a double room with a balcony (and after a lot of talking) with a window onto a patio. Rooms are dark, and gloomy. No frills - dark wood furniture. Bed was OK, but airco and/or fan where loud. I travel a lot and most of the time I'm very happy with my hotel rooms - here stayed...

Away from the traffic and noise of busy street of Getsameni, not to far from the center.

It is well situated and a very good price. Staff helpful and friendly. You are also able to use the sister hotel which has a pool. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace which was lovely. The area it is in Getsemani is fascinating and Trinidad plaza is a very popular place to hang out or sit with a drink...

Central location with a 10 minute walk to the colonial part of the town along some interesting streets. Hotel and rooms/ linen are looking tired and drab. Reception area / desk needs a good tidy and clean up which is your first impression of the place. Room was reasonable size, however, bathroom small and only cold water for shower/handbasin. Staff...

We stayed here for 2 nights over Christmas and was really great! Super central location and just off the Main Street where all the parties (and noise) is. Would definitely recommend this place and would come back to it.

Outdated room and bathroom with stains on the walls. Not giving a fresh outlook which imporant to me. Very stingy bathroom amenities. The place needs some refurbishments. On the main road with loads of traffic. I had a MASSIVE argument with the reception and the hotel director. They also refused to speak ENGLISH. They has denied entry to a friend...

The location isn't bad, Getsemani is a nice neighbourhood and it'll take you ca. 10 mins to get to the old town. The hotel itself is quite standard though, rooms very simple and small, WiFi often not working. On the positive, this hotel belongs to the same owner as two other ones, and you can go and use their facilities...

Highly recommend staying here if you need somewhere reasonably priced and central. We got to stay in a house across the street which is part of the hotel but we still had access to all the hotel facilities. The staff were so helpful, remembering our names and helping with everything we needed. I even got a hug goodbye when I...

A restored old building with all the Amenities. This place suited me so well, balcony to watch the world go by, Close to the Museums, Restaurants and bars. Pretty much a walk anywhere. The old area of Cartagena is being beautifully restored so it was nice being in an area of intact original housing. Great breakfast, the owners family all...
