The staff is friendly and useful. The interior of the house is amazing. The private rooms have air-conditioning. The breakfast is boring. The same every day: 2 eggs, some fruits, a cup of hot drink and a glass of cold drink. The kitchen stuff is not so much friendly and they looked offended when i did not understand Spanish. The...

everything was clean, the room was great, big shower (although no hot water, but its ok with the heat in Colombia!) the staff was VERY helpful, they helped us arrange a taxi to Playa Blanca. Also very patient with our poor spanish! I recommend this hotel, very well located and the rooftop breakfast is also a wonderful addition!

If you want to feel as if you are in Colombia, this is the place to stay. You won't have the amenities of a larger hotel chain but you will feel as if you are a part of the culture. Staff was very friendly but they don't speak English well. Breakfast is simple but good. When you get to know...

This place was great. Aircon, clean, good location tasty breakfast. That was until it came to check out. We were told to wait until they inspected our room which we did. The man at the reception then told us we were missing a small hand towel. We told him that when the room had been cleaned the towel was taken...

Nice little hotel with modern and clean rooms centrally located in Getsemani. it is only a few minutes away from the historical centre in Cartagena. A lot of nice restaurants and bars are nearby too. Good service! however, my room was not very spacious and the breakfast only average compared to other hostels and hotels I have been in Colombia!

A Beautiful building with very modern l, super clean rooms. Pretty standard breakfast( eggs and some fruit) so don't expect much more than that. WiFi works but not in the rooms you'll need to go and sit in the lobby for that. Only real let down was there was no hot water, great shower/bathroom but no hot water. All in...

It seems that the hotel went through a major refurbishment lately, as the room we were given was looking very new. It did, however, smell of mould and had a shower whose drain was very clogged, flooding the shower area. We were at the far back of the hotel and it was pretty silent. The breakfast is the same as...

Hotel is located on a very busy street in Getsemani neighborhood. It tends to be noisy with all sorts of honks even at night. Very nice interiors. Ask for room as far away from the street as you can get. Rooms are clean but not thoroughly clean (the was so much dust on the head of the bed). Rooms have...
