Cheap hotel that offers in accord with price
Posted Mar 13, 2015 on Hotels
I stayed in this hotel as a modestly priced, yet well-reviewed hotel, near Gesemani, in the nightlife district of old Cartagena. Although the location is indeed very close to both the nightlife, and the walled old town (10 min walk), I cannot recommend this hotel. Firstly, it was very loud, with continuous hammering every morning. It was impossible to be comfortable with the air conditioner. Also, there are open windows, and I was attacked by mosquitos one night, almost ruining my trip. Finally, the neighborhood is more of a back-packer hostal area...which is fine if you are under 30. But for a couple on a romantic getaway, or adults who need a bit of comfort, I would spend a few dollars more and book elsewhere. For young backpacker types, who don't need a particularly comfortable room, or amenities, it is fine.
