I recommend this property to anyone..I was looking for a cheap inexpensive place to Stay while on vacation in Columbia

Pulled up to facility. Nobody helped with your bags. Guard is looking at you bad doesn’t even welcome you. I waited for 30 mins to check in. Staff wasn’t friendly at all. Room wasn’t bad . Placed looked clean. Right next to restaurants and shops was probably the only good thing.

Great location. Was not happy with the check in process, long line and only two people doing the check in. Took a long time to get the key to my room. The front desk seemed in no rushed to get people checked in. The security guards can very crude and I did not like the part where they would ask you multiple questions before letting you into the property once it got dark.

the breakfast was great. the only issue was my ac wasn't working well and I slipped coming out the shower because of water was seeping out of the glass partition.

Great accompdations Staff is awesome Taxi perfect Room comfortable and clean

In general, I like the hotel. Very convenient location in Bocagrande. Lots of shopping opportunities around, formal and informal.

The hotel was conviently located. The staff was wonderful and very timely with our requests

Great location,very polite and nice staff,everything was accessible to our needs!👍

Clean hotel,friendly staff pretty fluent in English,only complaint would be the mini bar in room doesn’t have alcohol and no free bottled water is provided(most hotels in foreign countries give you a couple free a day)

Need to improve the size of beds, king size. The hotel is nice

The Holiday Inn Express staff were very friendly and welcoming upon arrival. They provided recommendations for nearby restaurants, as well as activities, in the city. The facilities were top-notch and the bedroom amenities proved to be comfortable and well worth the price. The hotel is a short 20 minute ride from the airport, 10 minutes from the historical old city and roughly a 5 minute walk from the beach. Highly recommend this hotel should you plan to stay in Cartagena!

Enjoyed my stay much. No problems at all. Great location!

Bad experience breakfast buffet is poor needs more options and room staff is rude and prices of the mini bar are so excessive

Had a very comfortable weekend with a nice room. I would recommend this hotel.

Great modern hotel in the center of Boca Grande Cartagena close to everything. I have stayed 8 nights and felt like home. Clean spacious rooms, hotel is fairly new and feels like new. Buffet breakfast included...fruits..juices..eggs...and other warm dishes. Great service in breakfast room. Swimming pool with a great view of the city on the 14th floor. Nice gym. I happened to talk with Cesar, the General Manager and he was very hospitable and helpull...also talked to Monika and Mauricio at the front desk and they always were very quick to help and friendly. The porter at the hotel greet everyone who walk in with a great smile and is very helpful. Genuine help...not to generate tip...just a nice guy. Make us feel at home.

Todo estuvo muy bien con el hotel , servicio , atención e instalaciones

Muy buena localización. Excelentes instalaciones y servicio.
