There was a lot of kidness in the hospitality, beautiful amenities and super nice Pool place. The place is in a very centric part of Getsemani, with lots of restaurants and places to visit. In General it was a great experience.

The hotel is indeed beautiful (rooftop pool) and the nicest staff. However this is to the attention of the Manager of the hotel: if you want to be claimed a luxury hotel as your price positionning suggests it, you HAVE to SOUNDPROOF the rooms. We stayed here for 3 nights in the 2 windows suite. The 1st night, we were...

Beautiful home in a great location for exploring Cartagena. The on-site staff is very helpful and great at preparing your meals. There was minor construction going on at the house during our stay which was not anticipated or announced. Also, the house is in need of additional repairs. For this price point in Cartagena guests should expect something that has...

This hotel was amazing!!! It's a small boutique hotel in Gestamini. It has 3 rooms, so it feels like you have the hotel to yourself. We hardly saw any of the other guests.

While I was on the property, I was the only guest, so it truly felt like my very own hotel. The service is super friendly and helpful, although Spanish-speaking only, so be prepared to know a few words. Great location in Getsamani and beautiful building and rooms. Very clean, and the roof pool is small, but relaxing. Thanks for a...

The hotel is good/clean, the terrace is relaxing, staff very friendly and location good. Note the small room of the 3 rooms at this hotel is quite small.

We stayed in Casa El Carretero last weekend and had a great time. This is a very small boutique hotel with very caring and attentive staff.
