Clean budget hotel. Jorge, Dyron, Josefa, Roberto and other staff were very friendly a helpful with directions and ideas for nearby attractions. The hotel was convenient and accessible in Bocagrande. Modest Breakfast was provided. Rooms are small.

This is the most terrible check in experience that i literally had in my entire life. I was waiting in the reception for 30 minutes and the employee was really doing everything except actually check-in. The rooms were not too bad but the service was really awful. Not recommended - never coming back.

I stayed at the Zalmedina hotel last week. I would totally recommend it to anyone visiting Cartagena. For me the best aspects of this hotel are: 1. Service. Staff members are quick and kind, very willing to help and make adjustments to satify the client's needs. 2. Cleanliness. Rooms and linen were very clean. I really liked the staff efficacy...

So I booked this hotel through Hotwire because Hotwire's rating system puts this hotel at a 4 star and compares it to a Hilton, Omny, Westin, or Hyatt. Although the hotel is clean, and the staff is somewhat courteous, this hotel is not a 4 star and it is deffenitely not comparable to any of the mentioned brands. This hotel...

I have often had great luck with "mystery room" accommodations through travel sites. When I bid on a 4-Star Hotel and ended up here I was horrified after hauling my luggage up the stairs to discover I was stuck in this dump. This should really be considered a motel, the only thing they've put any effort in is photoshopping the...
