Excellent location, nice and clean rooms. The service was exceptional. Fresh breakfast every morning (included) and natural juices. The only negative thing was that you could hear music coming from a club nearby, but didn't interfere with my sleep.

The hotel is very pretty and has a lovely pool on the roof. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the lady from Barranquilla (I wish I could remember her name). We were travelling the Barranquilla next and she gave us tips and organised our bus tickets for us. The breakfast was basic but good. Pretty standard for most...

This is a cozy little hotel in a perfect location. The people at the front desk and that serve breakfast etc were wonderful. Everyone is kind and helpful!! This hotel is not for light sleepers... which I unfortunately am. Luckily I brought my earplugs and my white noise machine! The pool is tiny but its cute and the courtyard is...

We decided to spend nine days in Cartagena to fully enjoy the local culture and after checking hotel options in Centro Historico decided on the Hotel Boutique las Carretas. Because we were going to be there for nine days we wanted to make sure we had a comfortable room, so we splurged a little and booked one of the suites....

A friend and I recently stayed there for several nights and enjoyed it very much. Good location within the Old City with good breakfast included. Friendly service. Very reasonable rates as well. Would recommend if you want to stay in this part of town.

We totally enjoyed our stay in mid January 2017. This is a jewel of a property right in the heart of the old city. We had a private patio which overlooked the bustling street in front of the property. Our room was spacious, clean and charming. The air conditioning was superb. The staff was helpful, kind and so friendly. Our...

We came here as a stop on our honeymoon over Christmas and loved it! Very helpful staff, great location, and a good value overall. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was nice and spacious. They have a small pool on the deck which was nice to sit by, and the included breakfast was decent. We found it surprisingly...

I stayed at Las Carretas for one night and I found this little boutique hotel amazing. Location is perfect, a few steps from everything you might need and want to see. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. My room was clean, comfortable and I loved the balcony on a busy street of the centre. My friend and I spent...

We stayed only two nights in this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Only the rooms and the bath are little bit small.. We had good Internet connection and the hotel is located in the middle of the old city center. Also the breakfast was delicious.

We loved everything about Las Carretas, especially their staff! Leonel and Diana were incredibly helpful, friendly and cordial. We stayed here from Wednesday, November 7th through Sunday, Nomeber 11th. My boyfriend and I traveled with another couple, we all stayed on the upper floor, both rooms next to the rooftop pool. The rooms were the perfect size, very clean, great...
