A comfortable stay in Cartagena
Clean, modern interior, Holiday Inn Express operated under contract with OXO hotels affording great service in a clean environment with a designed interior that brings exterior elements indoors that, with color selection, affords that extra beach element to accompany your Cartagena vacation destination. Although other hotels may be right on the beach, you will likely find them to be more crowded while this hotel is one block from the beach and offers a rooftop pool for those who might also be seeking sunbathing in a quiet and secure location with ease of access to their room and the rooftop restaurant in addition to any planned beach visits. Rooms were equipped with mini-fridge affording storage of grocery store bought beverages and snacks as a pleasant alternative to constant dine out options of which there are many including the food court at the nearby Bocagrande shopping center. For those planning visits to the historic district, it's a short can ride away. For all other destinations, other than the airport, you would be advised not to use unofficial non-cab transport by private persons providing transport for hire as even your official cab driver may be unfamiliar with your destination that is other than the most common. All said, this hotel is in great location relative to the beach and commercial businesses within the hotel zone. Photos of the hotel were accurate at time of my visit 03/2021 and no additional photos were added for that reason. * * * *

Poor 2.0
Staff is slow and dont know what they are doing. Elevators do not work properly. They deactivated my card many times. Food is terrible. The covid restrictions are obnoxious. The price is too high for what this hotel offers. Restaurant staff will ignore you. The temperature controls in tbe rooms are terrible to use and dont work properly. Beds are too soft and will destroy your back. This hotel is worth about 20 dollars per night.

Great location . Safe and happenning neighbourhood . Lots of restaurants , banks and plaza bocagrande (mall) is within walking distance . Shuttle bus to playa blanca picks you up from the hotel and the city tour bus has a stop at Mc Donalds across the street. The hotel itself is clean , has a rooftop pool and a restaurant and a lavish breakfast spread in the morning . The staff is very welcoming and helpful . It deserves more than 5 stars . Great Great Great place to stay

Kristina, us4 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
I liked that this property is located near plenty of restaurants and night life. Our room was small and didn’t have much of a view at all. The sheets weren’t exactly white and neither were the towels. I requested that the floor be mopped or cleaned and that never happened. I also requested wash clothes that were never brought to our room. The 1 resturant in the hotel was always empty and the glass around the pool area looked like it has never been cleaned so the view from the roof top isn’t a good one.

Property was actually really nice, super clean. My only suggestion would be that they should sell cocktail drinks by the poolside,. other than that the place is really nice
