I stayed here for two weeks. Brian (the owner) & his wife Ester are the best possible hosts, along with Alex (the manager) they will do everything possible to make sure your stay is a happy and memorable one. Brian is really a chef and makes an amazing cooked breakfast each morning, i often didn't need lunch as the breakfast...

Peter, thank you so much for your kind review. It was wonderful having you stay with us for 2 weeks and especially that you devoted so much time to the foundation for street dogs. FRAD. The world needs more people like you.

For the price we paid we were expecting a youth hostel type of accommodation BUT boy were we wrong. From the moment we arrived we were looked after like VIPs by the most wonderful, friendly caring group of people. Firstly the owner, Brian, is the loveliest guy that you could wish to meet. A fantastic chef who cooked up the...

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and your wonderful comments are much appreciated by myself and the staff. We do our best to make everybody feel at home.

The location is really much better than the price would suggest. Very close to the beach. But the room is definitely old. The AC and TV were sufficient. The breakfast was actually nice. The staff was very nice.

Thank you for your review. We think we have the best location of any budget hotel in Cartagena, which I am glad you appreciated. In terms of old, I would think 90% of the hotels in Cartagena are old, but all our rooms have new mattresses, TV´s and we are constantly decorating and renewing our facilities. Bon Voyage.

I was intrigued by the excellent references and the famous breakfast so we booked 2 nights at Pueblito Playa. The manager Alex contacted me through Whatsapp at the time of booking which was very thoughtful. Our room was simple but clean and the bed was good, the A/C was super efficient and the wifi was excellent. We were facing the...

Nice hotel in Boca Grande, less than 5 minute walk to the beach and close to the action but a little removed from the hectic city center. Alex at the front desk is the real gem of pueblito followed closely by the breakfast. Alex spoke great English, allowed us to modify our reservation in person (change a date and add...

We read the great reviews about hotel publito playa before booking and were not dissapointed. It will never be a 5 star hotel in the classical sense but the staff all try to make it a 5 star experience for the guests. They are so friendly and just want to make your visit a good experience nothing is too much...

My parents, brother and I (mid 20's) had a wonderful stay at Pueblito Playa for 5 days in early January. After struggling to find a budget hotel that had air-conditioning (a must in Cartagena!), breakfast, AND a good location, we stumbled across this gem of a hotel. We were very happy with our modest yet comfortable, clean and air conditioned...
