Decent Hotel across from the beach in a tourist trap city.

The hotel itself is nice for around $90 per night. Its between a massive condo building(filled with parties each night) and the large Hilton resort. The hotel is directly across from the beach. My room did not have a view of the beach. I only see the glaring lights of the Hilton. Rooms with a smaller numbers should have a view of the ocean and of the island of Tierra Bomba. Please be aware that Cartagena is a tourist trap. I've been all over Colombia and I've never been hassled as much as I was in Cartagena. The venders are everywhere at all times day and night and they are super aggressive. Its really annoying and will wear you out quickly. As soon as you leave the hotel you will be bombarded with offers for jetskis, massages, fresh crab, fresh fish, beads, cheap sunglasses, lotion, beers . . .its never ending. They never come into the hotel which is good. The hotel itself has a very small pool which closes at 8pm. There is small restaurant with a limited menu. Alot of the hotel staff speak limited English which for me was helpful. My only real compliant was the dry cleaning bill. I had a shirt, pants and two swimsuits washed/cleaned. There was a 16% IVA tax and then a 16% gratuity charge. The total for my 4 items was 199,000COP or about $107 USD. I paid $25 per item to have them washed. I only stayed at the hotel two days but the insanely hot weather and hyper-aggressive vendors made me happy to pay the outrageous cleaning bill because it meant I was leaving Cartagena.

The beach is across from the hotel. You will get many offers for boat trips and jetskis. Be prepared to haggle aggressively. The first offers you get you can negotiate down 50%. Several different venders will surround you which can be intimidating. Use their numbers to your advantage by playing one against another. I was able to rent a two person jetski for about $80k COP or about $40US.

Perfect for a economical vacation

Extra friendly and helpful. Tours not out of line with other tour companys. Breakfast, basic but good. Have a big dinner for noon meal. Included supper is light but good. Staff is the best! From the workers to cleaning people, to cooks to anyone you come in contact with. Thank Edwardo, Maria, Christina and all the staff. You all made our first trip to your beautiful countrry a pleasure.We just wish we spoke Spanish because we found very few english speaking people.

Take the bus from the hotel to the walled city. You can take the bus anywhere for 1500 pesos each. It is safe and quick.

New Year's Eve Vacation

Staff was very courteous and helpful. The location was very good. Quiet and safe. The room had no safe, You had to use the hotel's safe. The room was kept very clean. King size bed very comfortable. The bathroom's shower was very old - water pressure on the 4th floor room was low to strong - it varied as you were taking a shower. We found out that hot water was on only after 9:30pm. No matter how many times we requested it earlier in the day. The buffet in the morning was fine. Skip the evening buffet unless you are running short in cash.

There is a restaurant around the corner facing the lake which has great food - no dessert. There is also another restaurant facing the beach - 2 - story. Great seafood! Highly recommended. They have dessert.

excellent for the price

Nice breakfast,close to the beach, excellent staff, very kind and helpfull, 5 minutes by walking from main avenue, 5 minutes by cab from downtown, big room. It would have been nice if the hotel would have had room service and lunch or dinner. However they have a snack instead dinner. For the price it is a very nice, clean hotel. My wife had a medical problem but the hotel has medical insurance for the pax and the sent us an ambulance and a doctor who solve the problem. Thanks!!! Next time we travel to Cartagena we will book the same hotel

The "chiva rumbera", the day travel to the city, visit Del Rosario Island and its sea aquarium. Do not buy the tour in the hotel, they are much more expensive.
