    Fabulous

    The location is excellent, the room was clean, the breakfast was simple but good with fresh fruit included. The staff was helpful.

    The airconditioning was very noisy. It was not possible to pay with credit card, while this possibility was indicated on the Booked.net website. The staff told me that this was only a short time problem because of the change of the owner but it was still very annoying.

    Superb

    The hotel staff were welcoming, friendly and very helpful with directions and assisting me with making reservations around town. The location cannot be beat - I had a lovely little room overlooking the street.

    I would have preferred to have been able to open the outside shutters to let some light in during the daytime, but to secure the room, the shutters had to be closed. In the evening when it cooled down, I could open both sets of doors.

    Fabulous

    Nice, friendly staff. Helped with problems with ac and tv. Felt safe and secure. Great location.

    First room we were given the ac did not work. However, the staff was able to find a better room with a working air conditioner. Would like to have internet access.

    It is very well located.

    The service was not that good, rooms are dark and unattended and too expensive

    Very good

    Just the location, near to all Centro Historico in Cartagena, near of good stores and Torre del Reloj and Plaza de Santo Domingo. I recommend this because is cheaper and you can take your drinks in good places and walk securely into the Centro Historico. If you plan to enjoy the hotel, probably you would like a "boutique hotels".

    The breakfast is very simple and the Satellite tv service (it is not hotel fault), Telefonica tv is really the worst in all latam, if you want an hotel with good tv service in Colombia you probably might choose DirectTV or une cable digital tv but no more.

    Except the location there was nothing good about the hotel. I ended up not staying there for the night.

    The room I was shown was a small cramped space without windows. I would strongly recommend that if you decide to stay there you make sure you have one of the front rooms with a balcony. Not all rooms come with balconies and/or windows as shown on the photos. They were misleading. The staff was not helpful and just ignored me when I complained about the room. I would not recommend this hotel unless you enjoy claustrophobic space. And, to boot, the price per night was quite high for such property - around 60 dollars a night.

    Very good

    Room was clean and quite nice. Location was good.

    When I was leaving there was a little additional sum (about 15.000 COP) added to my bill that I did not understand even after explanation from the receptionist. But I was too busy to complain about that so I paid it.

    Fabulous

    Perfect location. Very friendly and helpful staff, but not all of then spoke English.

    Our shower didn't had hot water, and they couldn't fix it during our stay. The standard is not that high, compared to what you pay, but that is all over Cartagena. The room didn't have any windows. Noisy in the evening, due to a restaurant in the center of the hotel.

    - The service was excellent. People all very friendly and helpful

    - Room was too dark for what I paid - Air conditioning system was dripping - Breakfast: No real espresso, very basic - Overall too expensive for what u get (like whole Cartagena, by the way)

    Good

    Personal sehr freundlich. Frühstück war OK aber keine grosse Auswahl. Die Lage im herzen der Altstadt ist sehr gut ! Wi-Fi kostenlos im Zimmer war gut !

    Hotel ist sehr alt. Zimmer sind in sehr schlechten Zustand. Safe im Zimmer war kaputt. Altes Mobiliar.

    Exceptional

    Wir haben 5 Nächte im Zimmer 202 logiert. Gefallen hat uns die Ausstattung des Zimmers mit grossem Doppelbett und Klimaanlage + Ventilator, die grosszügige Dusche, die Güte und Hilfsbereitschaft des Personals bei allerlei Fragen und der kleine Balkon zur Strasse. Die Lage des Hotels ist sehr zentral im Centro Historico. Obwohl wir ein Zimmer zur Strasse hatten war der Strassenlärm kaum zu hören, was auf die gute Isolierung des Fensters zurückzuführen ist. Wifi hat tadellos funktioniert.

    Superb

    Preis und Leistung haben sehr gut gestimmt bei dieser Unterkunft. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und das Personal immer hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Zimmer waren früher bereit als vereinbart. Immer sehr gerne wieder und empfehlenswert für einen Aufenthalt in Cartagena de Indias!

    Personal hatte uns fuer die zweite Nacht ein neues Zimmer mit Fenster organisiert Die Lage ist gut. Die Ausstattung war ok sogar warmes Wasser.

    Das erste Zimmer mit Schimmel und ohne Fenster war für den Preis nicht angebracht.

    Fabulous

    Frühstück in der Palmen bewachsenen, Efeu umrankten Innengalerie. Sehr freundliches Personal, hervorragende Lage (ruhig, sehr zentral in der Altstadt)

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Gute Lage, super schönes Hotel mit begrüntem Innenhof, wo das reichhaltige Frühstück serviert wird.

    Obwohl wir ausdrücklich Zimmer mit Fenster gebucht hatten, bekamen wir eines ohne Fenster, mit bröckelndem Putz und nicht sehr sauber. Umzug am nächsten Tag in ein gleich teures Zimmer, das unvergleichlich schöner und sauberer war und einen Balkon hatte. Englisch wird kaum verstanden bzw. gesprochen.
