The hotel is absolutely beautiful, its architecture dates from the 40s and they have done a wonderful job to preserve it. the internal gardens are relaxing and magical, where you can experience wild life such as baby deer, sloth, toucans, falcons and variety of colorful birds.
The rooms have been brought up to current modern looks, with very comfy beds and ample space, where you can relax and have a good night sleep. You will not hear any noise from the street, or other rooms due to the sturdy construction of the building.
The location was perfect, across the street of bocagrande beach, where the hotel has complementary umbrellas and chairs at your disposition, full service restaurant for drinks and snacks brought to you by the hotel personnel that are extremely amicable. They will tell you not to buy from street vendors that roam around the beach all day long... we didn't buy art crafts, but we got massages from the ladies at the beach, they were so much fun and extremely good misuses, with them you can experience the local flavor of Cartagena, for $15-$20 they will do a complete body massage and tell you fun stories for you to have a good laugh... granted that you have to understand spanish to enjoy that part, still if you dont you will be very happy with the front beach massage :)
You are only 5-10 mins away from the city center (walled city) and the taxis or buses will take you there for $2-$4 per ride.
We couldn't be happier with the hotel, looking forward to go back

security was very good here and the staff very friendly. Maid service was great. Restaurant service was a different story but the breakfast buffet was very satisfying.
The only odd thing was if I didn't keep the room really cold the tile floors sweated...I mean really wet. I had to walk on towels placed on the floor. Roof top pool and bar was my favorite place to be.

I spent one night with my family, we enjoy it very much. Its very comfortable for a short trip with family, the pool at the top of the building its ok for a couple of hours. For the price it was more than i expected.

This was a fantastic hotel. It was my last stop over after traveling through South America for 3 months and my expectations may have been a little lower after staying in hostels but I thought this place was great. The staff went out of their way to help with anything they could. Even the young girl doing her training on the front reception desk did a terrific job and was patient with my broken spanish and assisted in English when she could.
The breakfast was brilliant. The location in Bocagrande was nice and central with walking access to everything I needed. The walled city is only a short taxi ride (or reasonable sweaty walk) away.
Highly recommend this hotel.

Very nice friendly staff food was good and convenient location. We had no hot water in our room but we didn't mind. By taking to other guests we found out the did have hot water. The other downside was the fact that the hotel is under renovations but other than that great experience at reasonable price

The main tourist district of Cartagena, Bocagrande is the place to find the best restaurants to sample the local cuisine and the liveliest nightclubs to dance until the morning hours. The neighborhood extends out into Cartagena Bay and is lined with beaches along the Caribbean side. A number of islands off the coast to the south can be reached by boat and make a perfect day trip.
