A high rise hotel along the beach. with a fantastic view. Room, bathroom normal. Breakfast also normal, nothing special. Wifi very slow. Staff friendly but always a long long cue to the reception desk. English speaking. Close to the city center.

The Almirante is one of many high-rise hotels along the beach in Bocagrande (Cartagena). The rooms and bathrooms are as expected but nothing special. The breakfast and lunch buffets are very good--lots of choices. Service is very good (as with nearly every hotel in Colombia).

The hotel is located in a nica place, right at the beach, and this is its best feature. The room I stayed in was old, with a feeling of an 80's Grandma's Beach House. Old furniture, old looks. My balance is that it charges for location, but it lacks in accomodation.
