The location is really much better than the price would suggest. Very close to the beach. But the room is definitely old. The AC and TV were sufficient. The breakfast was actually nice. The staff was very nice.

I was intrigued by the excellent references and the famous breakfast so we booked 2 nights at Pueblito Playa. The manager Alex contacted me through Whatsapp at the time of booking which was very thoughtful. Our room was simple but clean and the bed was good, the A/C was super efficient and the wifi was excellent. We were facing the...

Nice hotel in Boca Grande, less than 5 minute walk to the beach and close to the action but a little removed from the hectic city center. Alex at the front desk is the real gem of pueblito followed closely by the breakfast. Alex spoke great English, allowed us to modify our reservation in person (change a date and add...

It would be extremely difficult to find another hotel with such a magical feeling set in the most beautiful location. Managed to perfection, staffed by the best. I love this hotel.

We read the great reviews about hotel publito playa before booking and were not dissapointed. It will never be a 5 star hotel in the classical sense but the staff all try to make it a 5 star experience for the guests. They are so friendly and just want to make your visit a good experience nothing is too much...

My parents, brother and I (mid 20's) had a wonderful stay at Pueblito Playa for 5 days in early January. After struggling to find a budget hotel that had air-conditioning (a must in Cartagena!), breakfast, AND a good location, we stumbled across this gem of a hotel. We were very happy with our modest yet comfortable, clean and air conditioned...

The rooms were very clean, but nothing special. However, the owner, Brian, and the staff were amazing. Brian printed out a guide to Cartagena they had made, complete with restaurant recommendations, and everyone was very friendly. The location is one block from the beach and a reasonable walk (20-30 minutes) from the walled city. The breakfast was two delicious courses...

The location is very good, silent and close to the beach, just 2 min walking. The best part of the hotel is that the owner is also the cook and his breakfast was the best ever. Mr Brian he's the best.
