2/10 Poor

Edwin, 5-night family trip
Verified guest review

4/10 Fair

Probably I wasn't in my best day of luck, but let me share an advise. If you ever get to a place to find a toilet plunger next to the toilet, air condition faulty, light in the bathroom RM304 drops when the room door is closed; don't think mayhen is coming, you're already there. At first glance the facilty looks really nice, but when you get the feeling of the stay on few details maintenance staff obviously overlooks, the feeling isn't the best. And then, the staff specially the restaurant staff has a first place in disregard for customer service, or perhaps was just personal.

8/10 Very good

The only con to the hotel is that it lacks hot water when you take a shower and it's outside of the tourist area.

Very nice hotel and staff
Very clean hotel and amazing staff, and quite affordable too. Thanks for all the help in getting through Cartagena, especially for someone who speaks no Spanish!! My only problem was lack of hot water in the bathroom

Westerners- don't do it!
Hotel is pretty nice for the price. Area is sooooo sketchy! Not safe to walk in day let alone night. An half hour cab to centro for about 12000 COP.

Bad location, average services
Located far away from the Historic Centre and main tourist attractions. Not good to walk around. You will need to invest more in transportation. Breakfast was not good, no different choices, small portions. Staff was good.

6/10 Good

Overall it was ok
Hotel has good and pretty new infrastructure, but it is far away from the Historic Centre, in the Industrial Zone. We were advised by the hotel staff not to walk around the area. You need to move in taxi cabs or Uber because buses are not recommended. You may consider renting a car and try to move by yourself, being careful with bikes, motorcycles and bus drivers. Breakfast was not good enough and portions were small. The lady receptionist (sorry, I don't remember her name) and the boy in charge of carrying the luggage and opening the gate at night were the kindest! Good job from them! Accommodations were very comfortable, though.

Decent hotel close to Cartagena Port
Good hotel to stay at if you have business in the port area. Facilities are limited but the staff are very good and the place is clean. Very competitively priced.
