Reviewed 25 January 2017

The hotel is pretty old, but it's worth it! We wanted to stay in a Colombian hotel, with colombian breakfast and we got it. This hotel is apparently part of Cartagena's history, and they are proud of it. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and really good, we had some typical food! Oh, their swimming pool...

Warm and welcoming staff with the cool relaxing room makes this a perfect place to unwind after a long journey. Basic toiletries, clean bathroom, strong wifi, and a quiet comfortable room. Located walking distance to many restaurants and grocery stores. Felt safe and secure.

This dated (1958) hotel was clean, staff friendly, and the a/c worked great in hot Cartagena, BUT....IF internet is important to you then find somewhere else. If you can get on wifi, it will repeatedly kick you off to re-log back in. It didn't work in our bedroom, they/we tried numerous bedrooms and it was always the same. It worked...

From the minute I walked in I thought that Don Johnson from miami vice was going to be walking the hallways of my hotel as it was a little antiquated, not like it matters as I only spend my time there to sleep and shower. Loved that the AC could freeze out my room, for those long days in cartagena...

I just stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as a chill out after 3 long jungle weeks. I was greeted with enthusiasm when I arrived, my room was lovely and just what I needed to relax. The pool area is spotless and the staff in the restaurant/ bar were fabulous. I ate at the hotel once and it was...

This place is well located at the end of Bocagrande, near the beach and the main avenue of shops and restaurants. It is a bit of a kick back to the 60's but I loved it, especially the multicoloured tiled floor. The pool is nice and big and you can use it until 8pm. The rooms are ok, the beds...

The hotel is clean and the rooms are OK. The distance to the beach is a few minutes walk and the beach of Bocagrande is extensive. The distance to the old town is about 5 km, which can be covered with a public bus. The service was very good. Small but good swimming pool. Restaurants around the corner.

The only reason this is 3 star is the pool. The rooms had hair, mop strands and brown crud on the floor and the cleaning solution smells nasty. For $116 a night in a developing country I'd expect better. Breakfast was tasty and well cooked. Staff and cleaning people mostly eager to help. Bus tour of the city was a...
