Great Location. Clean. Great Service.
This is a great hotel. Gustavo and the entire staff has been very helpful and kind. I will come back here for the great service. Free Breakfast. The internet is fast. The room and entire building is clean and well maintained. The AC worked well and without any noise. It is close to many resturants and stores

Great hotel and location.
This hotel was great. My only difficulty was the language barrier. The staff was very friendly and a few spoke English, but no matter who it was they were very patient and using a translator app on my phone helped a lot. The free breakfast every morning was great and if you didn't feel like going down to the restaurant so mornings they would bring it to your room at no extra charge. My favorite by far was Diego, he was extremely friendly and always wanted to help. We talked about my previous day and what I had planned for the day with Diego providing suggestions that helped me a lot. The location was just 2 blocks from a huge food selection. While the restaurant in the hotel was great I also tried many of the 50 plus food places that were so close near by. The location is very quiet and peaceful with a great big beautiful church directly across the street from it. I recommend checking it out just for the beauty of the building if you get a chance. Back to the hotel, the rooms were nice, just a little small but everything is small in Colombia compared to America so that's understandable. The rooms were all interior rooms so no windows to look outdoors but that didn't bother me too much. Overall I loved my stay at this hotel and I would definitely stay there again when I return to Colombia.

Best part of Cartagena to stay. Close to the Metro but a very safe and lively area with plenty of restraunts and bars. More of a local area. If you want a Gringo trap then head to El Puablito

Great overall marred by a single event.
Mostly very good, beware however that any visitor to your room requires registration and a fee, even if it’s only for 5 minutes. Something to do with the police I’m told. My friends turned up and we were straight up asked “what will you do in your room?” This was highly embarrassing for my friends as it came across as if they were hookers or something. I voiced my complaint and told the manager that they should deal with this in a more softly softly way. It was embarrassing for myself and my poor friends. More tact required.
