We reserved with more than 3 weeks, then no rooms!Posted Jan 20, 2014
Pros: I had no chance to like anything, they have no rooms for us, after we had reserved then with 3 weeks
Cons: Seriousness and responsibility
Location: No idea
We had two rooms reserved with 3 weeks of advance. Then when we arrived Villa Colonial said they have no room available. We had a very long trip in a plane departed my home in Connecticut at 2am, arrived Cartagena 12 hours later, did the Immigration and custom, then pick a taxi from the airport to the Villa Colonial, arrived there by 3 pm, at that moment the staff said to us that they have no rooms and we will be relocated to other hotel, etc that hotel was inferior than Villa Colonial, we need to pay for another taxi, and mostly we were really tired! Then we needed to go to another hotel (Atlantic, good one), not the one offered by the Villa Colonial people (that was located in a really dangerous neighborhood!), pay for another taxi and another hotel fare. We were in a business trip and additionally I looked as an idiot in front of my boss. What else is possible? I STRONGLY RECOMMEND NOT TO USE VILLA COLONIAL!

Fine for a quick overnightPosted Dec 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
Only stayed very briefly after landing late in Cartagena before moving on the next morning to a different town (Valledupar). Hotel was fine for that purpose - taxi found it without much trouble, basic facilities including air con but not the comfiest bed and things a bit tired. Staff were v pleasant, calling us a taxi the following morning and offering us coffee while we waited.

Perfect place to stay right in the middle!Posted Oct 8, 2013
Pros: The location and the actuall rooms themselves.. biug and spacious and very comfortable
Cons: Be hard to improve on this place as it is
Location: Right in the middle of all the cafe's, restaurants and bars. Only about a ten min walk to the old city and about the same to the beach in the new city
Easily the best place i have stayed in Cartagena. It is situated right in the middle of all the restaurants and bars and about a ten min walk to the plaza in the old city. Everything you want is close by and the hotel itself is very clean and comfortable. I found all the people that work there to be very friendly and only too happy to help out with anything we needed.

Not a luxury hotel but a great guest house in the heart of Cartagena

No hot waterPosted Aug 19, 2013
A lack of hot water is not acceptable at any price point. Located outside the walls in the party area which is good other than the night club which has an adjoining wall which blares music until 4am. If staying here go to the club until close

Canadian in CartagenaPosted Jan 17, 2012
Pros: small, clean, location, and NOT A BIG CHAIN COOKIE CUTTER HOTEL!!!
Cons: no rooms with a view, and at night for abit things were a tad noisy from nearby bars.
Location: on a busy street, off the beaten tourist track, which was great because far more interaction with local folx.
easy checkin, and had made the booking that morning on line through expedia. things went very smoothly, and staff friendly and helpful considering out rather rudimentary spanish. no restaurant on site. easy walking distance to the old city, and restaurants, and no shortage of taxi's going past the front door. as a canadian, it was interesting having a shower with no hot water tap. considering how hot the weather was, the cool shower was great!!!!

Would come back any time, excellent value for the $Posted Oct 9, 2011
We spent 4 nights and liked it very much. Clean and pleasant appearance, staff is extremely nice and helpful. Only 5 min walk to the Cartagena old town center, lively neighborhood at night. I would come back any time.
