Could be a 5 star hotel
Posted Apr 21, 2016
I stayed here 4/15/16 to 4/20/16. This hotel is located perfectly in Cartagena if you want to be close to most of the action. It's only 10 to 15 min away from Castillo San Felipe and from the Walled City, which you need to visit if you plan on coming to Cartagena. You're walking distance from lots of stores and good restaurants. The beach is across the street. What I didn't like was the pool, which is only on the 5th floor, closes at 8pm. They have no jacuzzi! They have a sauna in the workout facility. They have a Solarium on the 15th floor which will give you a great view of the ocean and the Cartagena skyline. However it closes at 2pm! Also if you plan on having a guest come to your room you better make sure your room is considered a 2 person room. I have a friend that lives in Cartagena and they would not let her in my room my first night. The next day I had to add her to my room after them giving me a hard time about it. They then said if she doesn't say all 5 nights then that would be a problem.Why? I don't know. Maybe they don't want women coming and going to guests rooms. The staff security is very active! From the second you walk in the hotel they are everywhere. They have a guy stationed right in from of the elevators making sure no un wanted person goes in there. The restaurant has a great attentive staff. The breakfast is actually good, the one included in the free breakfast, however again they have hawk eyes making sure you don't get too much food.
