The Hotel 3 Banderas is a good option in Cartagena. It is very well located, with a good value. The staff is great and it is possible to schedule the tours direct in the reception. The breakfast is good and the rooms are confortable,

I was actually sent to this hotel when my reservation got messed at Balcones de Alheli. I spent one night in a nice room with two comfortable beds, plasma TV with cable, refrigerator with mini-bar, a safe for valuables and great working WiFi. I wasn't disappointed at all being sent here. It was in the heart of Barrio San Diego... More

Well, this was not the hotel I have chosen since mine (Casa Canabal Boutique hotel) overbooked me. Thanks to a darling friend who accepted my in her room. For my taste it is more like an inn than a proper hotel. But don't worry they charge you a fair price for what they are able to do. I love the... More

We stayed here for two nights after a couple of days in Parque Tayrona. We've been backpacking around South America and thought we'd treat ourselves for the last bit. For the price, Hotel Tres Banderas is very good. Some reviews mention very small rooms - ours was a good size, with a large double bed, a clean bathroom, and a... More

This small hotel inside the old town is a great place to stay and move around the city. Staff is always trying to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Breakfast includes a fresh and tasteful variety of fruits and some local cusine. Rooms are nice, and the prices are affordable.

I stayed at Tres Banderas for 4 nights with a group travel package. Pros: The staff was friendly enough and the facilities were clean. Location was good, central to everything you need in the walled city. Good security, the door is locked at night and you get in by ringing a bell. Rooms had A/C, although not all the rooms'... More

We stayed there for one night before going to Isla Grande and they kept our luggage safe for us. We stayed two more nights when we returned and it was so nice to be welcomed back.

The place is nice they just need friendlier staff. No management on site and you feel inside a prison. Cameras everywhere. The staff was not helpful and they asked us to leave on our second day because we brought some friends over. We were treated as criminals and discriminated. We will never go back there in fact I think I... More

Cute boutique hotel . Located right in the heart of old city and you can walk safely anywhere at any time. Charming atmosphere of the building is erasing small imperfections which coming with old constructions like poor hot water pressure and etc.... Each little step requires camera moment and breath talking... Will come back again...
