Very modest,but well kept & run hotel staff was initiative,very secure....my only negative experience if you can even call it that was walking up the modest hill to get to the hotel after being out in the hot sun all day.

The hotel itself is beautiful, yet there are some pros and cons to staying at this hotel. And to be honest there are better options! PROS: *The location is great, you can walk everywhere from there. Taxis are always nearby. It's a beautiful colonial home, and the rooms are decent, nothing out of the ordinary. CONS: *When I selected my room I booked Option 1 which is 1 double bed that sleeps 2 for the price of $80 a night, yet when I arrived to the hotel with my husband I was told that I needed to pay an additional 100,000 pesos ($30) for him per night since I had not clarified he was coming along with me. I asked if I would be getting an upgraded room for the additional price, and they said I wasn't I just had to pay for him to stay along with me.(Something that has never happened to me before and trust me I live in hotels as a Flight attendant ) I ended up paying way more for this hotel than I would have liked, I believe that for such price I could've stayed at the better options around this area. (Also I witness another couple having to pay extra while checking in so its a little scam they like to play) *The Breakfast is decent, eggs with toast and whatever side they have for the day. One day it was one chicken nugget and a few fries, another it was a spoonful side of mashed potatoes. Not to sound ungrateful but for the additional charge of $30 a night for my husband, I expected more. In other words, there are better options!

I like the rooftop views. Very safe environment. Good service!

Great location, clean and amazing price. Staff were very friendly.

Nice location 10 minute walk to the center so you can sleep without noises. Nice design and decor. Staff is pleasing. Breakfast is also good.

Great hotel, excellent location to old town and castillo of San Felipe. Facilities were great, staff was great. Breakfast need more choices, and my only complaint is. This is Colombia, the coffe for breakfast should be superb, it was poor. Aside from that I want to come back!!! Thanks for a great time Getsemani Cartagena

Generally it was not as advertised and looked very different from the pictures.

Great bed but small, fruit with breakfast eggs any way, breads juices and tea/cafe. Juan Valdez attached to lobby. Pool on roof w/views of fortress. Great shower and tile bathroom. Nice guests from Europe and S. America.

The exterior of the place is very unassuming, but the inside is nice. The staffer very nice and helpful. I made the mistake of booking the wrong date on line, but they were helpful in changing the reservation and getting my room right away.

The hotel was amazing. The front desk staff was very helpful with getting around the city, getting a cab and checking in. The rooms were clean and the lobby smelled amazing . The hotel was perfectly located in the city

Over all the place was great. I would like to see more than just eggs any style for breakfast. Also, your WiFi could be better. In the afternoon, it is very slow as everyone in the hotel is using at same time. Otherwise in the morning and night the WiFi is good.

Good service! Staff was excellent! Complimentary breakfast was good! Cool artsy neighborhood! I like chilling on the rooftop a night and sunset! Good breeze!

At first I was stayed in a different hotel in Cartagena. But after two disappointing nights I went online and found the Gethsemani for my last three nights. I'm so glad I switched to this hotel. The location was perfect, the hotel absolutely beautiful, the staff helpful and the most comfortable beds from my 17 days travelling across Colombia. I will definitely stay here again.

Just walking into the place you could tell it’s brand new. I was staying in a Junior Suite two room two bathrooms. I was helped and greeted immediately. My check in was about 10 minutes which I really appreciate coming from a long flight. It’s literally 10 minutes away (walking) from everything you would want to see in Cartagena. Breakfast was amazing. Staff was AMAZING and always willing to HELP. I was traveling with my 4 month old baby and when I walked in my room they had a crib for me set up.

No me gusto el hotel m as l servicio la pieza demasiado pequeña el baño muy diminuto no good muy caro el hotel

Es un hotel, que si bien no es de lujo, está bien ubicado y con un excelente servicio.

Hotel nuevo y muy buen ubicado Excelente personal. Desayuno completo y sabroso. Cafe Juan Valdez en su lobby. 100% recomendado!!!!!!
