Good hotel for the pricePosted Jan 8, 2015
We stayed here for 4 nights over New Year's. The hotel is very close to the beach and a 10 min ($5) cab ride from the old city. Cartagena is known for its Walled City but we enjoyed our stay in Bocagrande which was more calm and affordable, though not as beautiful. The hotel is also close to boats which will take you to one of several islands. The facilities themselves are out of date, but it is very clean and quaint. The rooftop has several hammocks and jacuzzis that are nice in the evenings. The breakfast (breads, fruits, juices, eggs) is included and is served in a pleasant courtyard. Most importantly the staff is very friendly! They even upgraded us to a nicer room. Overall for the price we had a great experience.

Sólo una nochePosted Jan 5, 2015
Cons: Deben de mejorar sus habitaciones y el desayuno que proporcionan puede ser mucho mejor.
Hola, en general es un hotel limpio, el personal es atento; pero la verdad un tanto incomodo, no tiene buena ventilación y es caluroso a morir a pesar de contar con aire acondicionado. Por fuera se ve lindo; pero las habitaciones ya necesitan una nueva decoración o al menos los muebles una mejor presentación. Afortunadamente sólo estuvimos una noche.

Nice Family Atomosphere in BocagrandePosted Dec 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for 3 nights on my honeymoon after staying for 3 nights in the old city (Getsemani). San Pietro is a nice little place - breakfast is awesome, restaurant downstairs is solid, and room was clean and big. I asked for a room that faced the terrace so I had no problems with noise. There are a ton of food options within walking distance. You will need to take a taxi to go back and forth to the old town but it's fairly easy to catch a taxi and it'll only cost you around $3-$4. Service itself is ok. People at the front desk aren't necessarily smiling and trying to go above and beyond to make you happy but they are nice nevertheless. I recommend the place overall.

Buen servicioPosted Sep 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
La atención en general es buena, el único problema fue el desayuno, siempre ofrecen lo mismo, convendría variedad.

utmärkt hotell.Posted Aug 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
Vi var mycket nöjda. När hotellpersonalen förstod att vi var en familj på 5 personer blev vi erbjudna en 3 - rumslägenhet tvärs över gatan. Allt till sammapris som för trippelrum plus dubbelrum. Mycket generöst och uppskattat av oss. Trevlig miljö på hotellet. Personalen vänlig och hjälpsam. Rent på rummet o städning till belåtenhet.

Well decorated. Close to beaches. Helpful staff. Air conditioning not very efficient but works. Relatively simple breakfast in nice patio. We enjoyed it a lot.

Pictures nice but reality differentPosted Aug 13, 2014
Pros: The staff is nice and pleasant. The location of the hotel is only two blocks from the beach.
Cons: Have a more balanced breakfast with more variety everyday.
The hotel first floor is nice like in the pictures. The second floor is not as nice as the first. Breakfast is limited. There is not variety in the menu. Always the same eggs and plenty of cheap bread. Although the breakfast schedule says until 10:00 a.m. There were many times that we had breakfast at 8:00 a.m and it was half breakfast. They would not prepare more for us. Very disappointing. Staff at the hotel are nice and do their best to help you. The room's bathroom is rather small. It floods after every shower. Definitively, I would not go back to this hotel.

Hotel is very pleasant with a very friendly staff,Posted May 10, 2014
Pros: Comfort, Colombian atmosphere (certainly not generic), friendly staff and very fair prices.
Cons: English conversation training for at least some staff.
Location: Beach, restaurants, walled city, other sites.
We were at the hotel in early May, which is a fairly slow time. The hotel is quite attractive in an excellent location for restaurants, etc. Not far from the beach. They seemed to be well staffed. Only hesitation is that most staff have very limited English skills. So, like most of Colombia, be prepared with at least a few Spanish phrases.

Good locationPosted Apr 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was included and was served on a patio. It was well presented and complete. The jacuzzis were not available all of the time because of maintenance but when they were, it was refreshing to use since the weather was low 30's. There was everything you need just around the corner: banks, supermercados, restaurants etc.... The hotel staff helped us with setting a city tour which took us downtown in the historical Cartagena. The beach is beautiful and only 2 blocks away. We would stay there again.

Great place to stayPosted Apr 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
A friend and I stayed here for one night in April. What stood out most to me about this hotel was the service. Everyone was very friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate us, even going as far as storing our luggage after check out! As far as the actual hotel goes, it was modest, exactly what you'd expect for that price point. It was a nice step up from a hostel, but I wouldn't exactly call it luxurious.
