Great Location

This hotel is in a great location. The staff is very nice and helpful. The public areas (lobby, restaurant, pool, gym, etc.) all look beautiful. The hallways and rooms are in need of a refresh, but that is in process now. Rooms are a bit dated, but clean and comfortable.

Great hotel. Staff is just average.

In general it is a very good hotel. Neat and clean rooms and amenities. Breakfast buffet is a very good one with local dishes, a wide selection of breads, fruits and more. Even though my experience was great within the hotel, I was not so convinced by the staff. They were not rude, they were not friendly. They were just doing there job and it doesn't include smiling to guests. I guess I'm used to the very friendly and polite American style. It is not a cheap hotel so I expected that differentiating factor that makes worthy paying all that money.

Only location is good

They state it is a five star hotel, but in some aspects it is barely a three stars one. It's not clean, food is average only, swimming pool small and hardly receives any sunlight, staff is either great or very impolite. Our room had problems with the bathroom from day one until we left five days later. The gym is a disaster: machines don't work, it is not well maintained... And so on.

Almirante Hotel

The hotel is a bit overwhelming. It has a resorrt feel for sure. Very close to the beach. But, if you are not into the beach it has a small pool. Wish it was a larger area. The rooms are a bit outdated but still enjoyed my stay. Easy to get to the Old City and other locations. Staff is very helpful.

Good location but needs improvement

The hotel situated perfectly but the aire conditioning and Internet had issues during my stay. IT was great and so was the rest of the staff. All things considered it was a good stay.

Great hotel

This is a comfortable hotel right on Bocagrande beach and a $3 cab ride from the old city. Friendly staff, though unnecessarily snobby. They hesitated to let me into the hotel because I had clearly arrived from backpacking around Colombia. They asked me multiple times if I had a reservation (which I did) before letting me in. The pool area is comfortable and relaxing. I think the 5-star advertisement is a bit of an exaggeration, but it is nevertheless a very good choice for your stay in Cartagena.

Good for cartagena

It was perfect for what we needed which was to have a clean room, clean and useable pool, and a close distance to the walled city. The hotel is On the beach, but I wouldn't recommend the beach to anyone.
