Super comfortable bed and very good much needed air conditioning. Very helpful staff. Quiet hotel. We could walk to many restaurants and sights. There was a safe in the room for our valuables. No complaints about anything.

The place is new. It's clean. The cleaning staff is here all day so they aren't waking you up to clean your room. They are accommodating for all your needs. They are genuinely nice. The area seems a little ghetto, but it's actually being gradually redone. It's very safe to walk anywhere even for a lady and even though it... More

Good price-value relation. Nice staff who can point you to local attractions and are attentive if you need anything for your room. Our room was clean and spacious. It's in a fun neighborhood right outside the Walled City. My only hangup was that our room was in the front of the hotel with windows to the street, so it was... More

Our room was huge and had a/c as well as a ceiling fan. The shower was good and so was the wifi connection. The area is good for exploring the city, being close to the old town, ATM's, restaurants, bars and street food etc. the only negative here was a lot of noise at night which has been the case...

This was one of three hostels in which we stayed in the old town of Cartagena. Positives were good WIFI, good A/C in the room, and location in Getsemani. It was also very cheap. Our friends recommended it as the cheapest option they found in the old town. The room was very average: reasonable clean, hard bed, and very dark... More

This hotel is very well located, around 5 mins walk to old Cartagena ! There is plenty of cheap restaurants around too ! Our room was spotless, bedsheets and towels were changed everyday.

I stayed here during Holy Week 2015. It is in a good spot in Getsemani. There are many restaurants near the hotel. Also, good bars are near, but if you want to go to sleep early, you won't here the noise inside the room. Almost every tour location is 2 Km away. There is a park, 2 blocks down, where... More
