“Great hotel to stay inside the walled city”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

Hotel Delirio is a small boutique hotel inside the walled city. The hotel's location may it ideal for my wife and I to walk all around the walled city without ever grabbing a taxi. The staff at the hotel were charming and helpful. Our room was nice and clean. Breakfast in the morning was great and included with our hotel rate. There are other options when staying in Cartagena, but our trip was a short few days and Hotel Delirio was a perfect choice for us. I would recommend this hotel for short stays and on a budget.

Overall, our stay at Delirio Hotel was very pleasant. The rooms were well decorated, although on the smaller side (which is quite common in the Old City). The air conditioning worked well and kept us quite comfortable in Cartagena's heat & humidity. The hotel is very close to two plazas with great restaurants and places for people to sit outside and enjoy a cocktail at night. Breakfast was delicious and of a high quality. And the hotel staff was very friendly.

A few things that could be improved to boost the hotel to a five star rating would be the following: 1. Our shower drained very slowly despite their being no visible clog and encouraged us to take very quick showers.

2. The WiFi was unreliable in our room, but better if we sat in the lobby or breezeway. This might just be a problem due to the location of our room.

3. Several of the amenities, such as the Pulverizing Cube and drinks on the terrace, were only discovered by us at the end of our stay. A brief mention of these amenities at check in would be helpful.

I got married in Cartagena on May 1st 2012 and my family from France and Canada stayed at this hotel for a few days before the wedding. It was very important for me that my family was staying at a very good hotel because it was their first time in Colombia. I could not have hoped for a better place. While the hotel is at a very good price, their service is one of the best in the city. The hotel is obviously a real charm, a nice renovated colonial house and the rooms are beautiful and modern. The breakfast is very good and included in the price, don't forget to ask for the arepa for breakfast, delicious! Mostly, what makes this hotel so magic is its people; from the door man, to the kitchen cook or the incredible Alexa at the reception desk and even the manager, they all make sure that you feel right at home. After a few days I felt like they were family. They really helped me and my family have the best vacation possible. Go, you will be enchanted! Enjoy : )

I was booked into this interestingly-named hotel by my client. Very cute decor and tiny (17 rooms!). Bed was like a futon and my first room had non-functioning A/C (remedied with different room on night 2). Staff was friendly and moderately conversational in English (better than my Spanish!).

Delirio looked modern and chic on the website, but when we got there it was nothing special. The mattress was rock hard, sheets were rough quality, and the roof was not like the photos. It seemed a little run down, and as if those pictures were from the day the place opened. The service was very good though.
