A great option for a well priced boutique hotel. Fantastic location. Access to full size pool in the other NH in town. Staff was attentive, accommodating and helpful. Luis Fernando was particularly great, catering to our every need for breakfast. Ask for arepas!

Great hotel just inside the wall. Quiet and comfortable for sleeping and easy to get around from there. Lovely welcome drinks were served and the property was clean and well appointed. Small problem with a leaky air conditioning unit which didn't reduce the effectiveness of the AC so no complaints. Cabs were always available and we were a 10 minute...

The hotel is very well located in a perfect spot inside the "cidade amurallada". The hotel is small and friendly with a perfect match with the Cartagena history. You can fell as you were living many centuries ago. Good breakfast and very polite staff members although some could have a better support for the turist with local tips.

La Merced Royal afforded a comfortable surrounding with very affable staff. Plunge pool and roof top jacuzzi with views over the sea were more than enough to cool off. Well equipped accommodation with delightful breakfast room. Situated within the walled city within walking distance of all amenities but quiet and serene thanks to classic Spanish style atrium.

On our last day there, our flight wasn't until 11pm at night. Instead of having to carry our luggage with us all day, the hotel was so accommodating...

When I arrived I asked desk clerk Jose if the corporate rate I had been quoted included the taxes. He checked, and informed me that it did. When I checked out, he told me that since I was a resident of Colombia, the taxes would have to be charged to me separately. This would have resulted in me paying $210...
