              The location is perfect. Beach is directly across street, a quick walk or taxi to anywhere you want to go.

              A/C seemed to struggle, though it was hotter than hades outside, so not a major issue.

            • Single
              7.0

              very friendly staff and service

              decor of the room needs refreshing - furniture, smell (light but present, moldy)

            • Family with children
              6.6

              Excellent securty

              Hot water was dark brown. I couldn't give the 4 month old baby a bath. Had to buy bottled water for her. No babysitters were allowed in the room. Not family orientated. Bueet lunc was not worth the money. Rice, bread and some sort of meat. Beach chairs are limited. We had to pay for chairs as the few they have were taken. To many harassing beach vendors.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Good facilities for the price we paid. Near to the beach, which is why we went there; also close to lots of good restaurants. The breakfast is also very comprehensive, good on quantity.

              I wanted to pay in cash and asked the staff how much the cost would be in local currency. I then made sure I had enough local currency to pay. On check out I was told that the hotel had already charged my credit card even before I had talked to the staff who either did not know or did not mention it to me. I was then left with a large amount of local currency which I had to change back into dollars. This was very annoying and costly.

              For me this hotel is really cheap, it looks old and notcharming at all, staff is slow not friendly and you have to pay before to stay!!!!!!!!!!! I booked 5 nights but I escape the second day to the hilton, and after I visited the historic center I understand now why it s better to book an hotel with swimming pool in the historic centerr thsn to book close to the beach. The historic center is beautifull and there is nice restaurants, if you re staying close to cartagena plaza hotels restaurants streets and shopping are uggly. Cartagena plaza received 4 stars 30 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mow it s 1 star!!!!!!!!!!!

              Directly on the Beach!! Good location for the beach area, 5/6 minutes away from the historical centre

              Free towls for beach & pool, food average, spacious room for a fair price

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Location is great. Stone's throw from the beach. Roof top pool is great, but barely any lawn chairs. Breakfast is very good

              - Says its a 4*, barely a 2.5* - has not been maintained at all. walls are cracking, old paint, old furniture - shower gives hot water, but water squirting out from different parts of the faucets - the roof top food service is not good - old beds / worn down building - 1/20 staff spoke english - 2nd floor toilet had no seat on it! - relatively good for the money. I would stay again if I had no choice.

            • Couple
              5.0

              A/C was efficient and quiet.

              This is no way a 4 star hotel maybe a 2.5 star. For example the are these 10 dollar plastic chairs in the restaurant. There were lot of Colombian families staying at this hotel, so the hotel was pretty noisy even at night. Half of the elevators were not working most of the times. It took sometimes 10 minutes to get an elevator "ride". The staff speaks very little english. There is no safe in the rooms. There is a safe at the reception, but it is only accessable in certain times, not always. They wanted me to pay in advance for the entire stay at check in. We agreed to pay 50% in advance. I have not received an invoice - detailing the transactions of my stay - at check out, only a credit card receipt.
