Recent guest reviews

My stay at the Howard Johnson in Barranquilla on February 9-12th was the greatest... I felt at home, the room was spotless and the staff was very professional and courteous. The food was delicious and it was a friendly and familiar environment. Kudos to the staff for exceptional service! Definitely would recommend, 5 stars.

Walking distance to troja for after party and Sunday night street fest. 15 minute cab ride for 10000 pesos to via 40. Good WiFi and air conditioning. Rooms are old but good enough for 3 nights. Mini bar.

Spent 2 night here , first our room was to much noise we complained and the day after they changed the room. Once we did checking out they try to fine us as the cleaner sad that we smoked in the room - what a joke ! We do smoke but we had not smoked in our room. In any way there was much better hotels around cheaper and better .

This hotel is safe, clean and basic, pretty much what we expected. The restaurant is fine with a good breakfast buffet. Nothing to write about other than it served the purpose of a place to stay for a night while traveling through. I suppose I should give it a 2 plus or 3. It's a basic, average hotel.

Hotel is very good with respect to location. Swimming pool and restaurant area is also very beautifull. Covered by lot of happening places nearby. Breakfast include varety of food. And staff here is very very cooperative

Not sure where to start with this. I can't give it on star because I am sure there are worse flee infested motels that I wouldn't even consider staying in, but this place is close. First for an American brand nobody spoke English. Luckily my wife is Latino, so she had to translate. The neighborhood is pretty scary too. During the day is fine, but I wouldn't go out at night. The place was in disrepair. The gym was barely functional. Even the pool was out of order when we were there. I think the worse part of the stay was that the AC could not keep the room cool. It wasn't even a particularly hot day either (mid 80's)

I've stayed here now on three different occasions and planning on my fourth this coming January-February 2017. I've always found the staff to be polite and friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable. They do, however, need a little updating, particularly if the hotel wants to continue competing with some of the newer hotels "en el norte". Other notes: - Location is excellent; you can walk or take public transport to pretty much anywhere in the city, and without spitting distance is a large grocery store (always a plus when I travel). - Very good (and reasonable) laundry service. - For some reason, the second floor is used for all sorts of job interviews so if you end up on that floor, there are people coming and going all hours of the day. - Nice complimentary breakfast, except you have to beg for that second cup of cafecito.

Given the timing of our stay (Colombia vs Chile match in town) the prices for the rooms were at their peak. Due to this we paid top dollar for the room, and when this occurs you tend to question what value you get for it. I agree with all previous comments regarding the standard of english at front desk (and throughout the hotel), it is basically zero, luckily my wife is a local so with her it was no problem, without her it would've been tough. Rooms are large, but need a bit of modernising, or just some really good maintenance. Shower heads not fully functional (just need a clean), and overall rooms are a bit dated, but very comfortable with good air-conditioning. I thought breakfast options were very good, but caters to local tastes (which Im now used to). In general everything was fine, some of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, others not so much (like most hotels I guess). For me the only reason I couldnt rate the experience a solid 4 stars was simply that I didnt get much value due to the elevated room prices. Had I gotten a much cheaper rate the overall perceived value would have been better.

The hotel has a very good location, is in downtown, so it´s accesible to main public transportation. The service is mainly good, but has some flaws, for example at the pool bar the variety of drinks is not good, and the service there could be a lot better; we stayed in a 3 beds room, but they could only give us one cardkey, so it was annoying to ask the clerks to open the room for you when the roommate with the key wasn't near. The rooms are very clean, most of the staff is very helpful. Is a good option for business travel.
