My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Villa Colonial and it couldn't have been better. The hotel is beautiful, super clean, and has a kitchen for guest use. It is also in a great, safe location just around the corner from Calle Media Luna where a lot of hostels and restaurants are and walking distance to the old city center...

I just spent one week at this hotel and overall it was a great experience. All the staff were kind and helpful without being intrusive. The location is excellent within a very good neighborhood and a close walk to the historical centre. The price is very reasonable for the amenities and compared to local rates. Thank you for a large...

We stayed there after sailing from Panama to Columbia. We travel with Motorcycles and we were able to park our bikes securely. After navigating the first step -its a bit steep...- all up we were able to park 5 bikes! The hotel is nice, clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpfull- a far cry from the other place...

Thoroughly lovely little hotel/hostel. After a horrible experience at another in the town walls (a dirty dive) we checked in for 2 nights leaving our bags also for a 3 night trip to Playa Blanca & returning for 1 more. Can't think of any cons really. Pros = lovely little internal courtyard & terrace to chill, kitchen, very friendly &...

I stayed in Hotel Villa Colonial for two weeks while I looked for an apartment. It was clean and quiet, with the wifi right outside my room and cable TV. Very friendly staff. No complaints. Recommended.

The owner and son were very pleasant and helpful. They booked a boat trip and a collectivo for me and put all the charges on my credit card. I didn’t pay extra for these services. However, I'd rate this place a 2.5 star hotel. In one direction, the hotel is near Calle Media Luna that has many bars, restaurants, and...

Hotel Villa Colonial is one of three hotels owned by Martha y Alberto and family. They are all minutes away from each other and all extremely clean and tastefully decorated. The owner and staff are welcoming, very friendly and most helpfully. They go out of their way to make your stay a good one. I was a on a motorcycle...

Stayed our first night in Cartagena in Villa Colonial. Booked a private room and made a mistake of not getting air conditioning. Even though AC was in the room, to operate it, they charged COP 20,000. So after a rough night, we moved to another hotel which included AC and at a cheaper price. Hotel is decent, clean rooms and...

good location near major attractions, though the immediate neighbouring buildings look dilapidated... a smallish boutique hotel typical of Cartagena... room sizes comfortable... though bed n pillows are a bit hard.. rooms have air-conditions and fans, but shower/ toilets are naturally ventilated with openings letting in mosquitos & u can hear your neighbours next door thru' the toilets windows... upper floors...

Hotel for very low costs. Very clean, modern bathroom (though only cool water, which is nice regarding temperature in Cartagena). Helpful and friendly staff. Small and cosy rooms with well working air conditioning, if booked (recommended!). Ideal for short trips to explore Cartagena.
