This hotel is all about the location, espectacular attention and tips about the city for the visitor. In the center of Boca Grande with a good breakfast and one more time, a great attention. Stores, restaurants, historic places, beach, bars or anything you are looking for...are close. My room didnt have a view to anything, but the location made me...

Is an ok hotel located in the modern part of the city, very close to the beach and to the main shopping street. The staff is very professional and friendly. Cartagena could be a very expensive city, if you like to stay in the modern part of it and not expend much money, its a good choice.

I don't like to write bad reviews about places because I know that bad reviews can deceive others to book. However I also know that posting experiences that were not so cool you help travelers to make smarter decisions. This hotel is just okay. It has everything you need and even is one of the cheapest in the Bocagrande Zone...

This place is ok - but don't expect anything above this. The food was decent but there was noise from the swimming pool of what I guess was a neighboring hotel.

The hotel is good as far as the hotel staffs, room and security is good, location is also good but the room in which I stayed was noisier as it was facing the streets.

This hotel was not as good as the pictures & reviews. Pros: 1) Located beside a 24 hour grocery store. 2) Rooms facing inward are relatively quiet.

Respected sir, We are grateful for your comments, because they help us to improve every day, taking the necessary corrective for it. We answer you, the cons: 1. We are careful to put real photos, not we raise false expectations, or have problems with our guests. 2. Usually the beds are always dressed in the same way, unless the host...

This hotel was a good find! Although for the cost, the rooms seemed a bit basic, they were also spotlessly clean. The location is great for bocagrande--near the beach, two grocery stores and a fun cafe. Honestly, though, what made the experience were the people working there. They were always extremely kind and and attentive. I would definitely go back.

Decent 3-star property, the staff is friendly and tries to be helpful (but had no useful tourist information at all, and didn't seem too knowledgeable about basic things like taxis, didn't make wake-up calls, etc.). A/C works well, hot water works nicely.. It's a 10-minute taxi ride to the old city (not really walkable), and walking distance to a basic...

I spend a while trying to think of something good to say about our stay at this ripoff hotel. The only positive is that there is a Juan Valdez around the corner that makes really good coffee!
