Located only a few blocks from the esplanade the Nueva Granada is a great option in Santa Marta – Indeed if you are looking for a place that is affordable, clean, tidy and has good facilities this place is an overall winner. The manager Don Javier is a friendly and welcoming host who does his best to make his guests...

We arrived with a big group and were originally told by phone that we would be put in three rooms but upon arrival were told we would have to pay extra unless we all shared their large room which we did. The hotel is centrally located but the street is dark and scarry at night and appeared to have many...

We stayed with the very friendly, effective and strong team at the Hotel NG. It was extremely well maintained, nicely proportioned rooms, very clean, great breakfast, had two cups of coffee. The relaxed and focused efficiency of our concierge Jorge was to 5-star standards at a 1-star price!

Hotel Nueva Granada is the perfect place to stay in Santa Marta if you are looking for relaxation. The staff are really friendly and helpful. It is close to the beaches, restaurants and shopping. It is an old building with an inside garden,that gives you a nice feeling every morning when you wake up with the sounds of the birds....

The Nueva Granada was a great place to stay. It has professional staff, excellent standards in the hotel and the breakfast was very tasty. In a place where the humidity can soar up to 99%, the little plunge pool was a welcome relief.

In a city like Santa Marta with lot of poverty and dirt, we found that we needed a good, clean base to come 'home' to. Hotel Nueva Granada met our needs. Clean, quiet, free internet (3 quite fast computers), good breakfast and most of all: very friendly staff and owner. We felt very very welcome. Gracias y atentamente a Nueva...

My trip from Patagonia to Alaska: I find this charming place in Santa Martya. Nice, quiete, clean and comfortable with the friendly staff. I enjoy one week in the wonderfull garden place and refresh a littl bit in the pool. Doris

Stayed here for a week as a solo female traveler. Very helpful and friendly staff; the town is quaint and safe. The rooms are great for the price (if you want many amenities go to Rodarero and pay more) and the "hanging out" area outside of the rooms are great for meeting other travelers.

We stayed 6 nights in the "Nueva Granada" right in the historical center of Santa Marta. The hotel is like 3 blocks from the "most beautiful bay of America" where you can find loads of street vendors, restaurants and everyone coming together on the beach. The hotel's street itself isn't exactly nice, actually its really dark by night and the...

We stayed here for one night in Jan 2009. We got in late so it was hard to see what the room was really like. This was definitely one of the worst places we stayed: the matresses were so old they had dips worn in the centre of them; the room was dingy and grimy and we were welcomed by...
