Outdated room and bathroom with stains on the walls. Not giving a fresh outlook which imporant to me. Very stingy bathroom amenities. The place needs some refurbishments. On the main road with loads of traffic. I had a MASSIVE argument with the reception and the hotel director. They also refused to speak ENGLISH. They has denied entry to a friend...

The location isn't bad, Getsemani is a nice neighbourhood and it'll take you ca. 10 mins to get to the old town. The hotel itself is quite standard though, rooms very simple and small, WiFi often not working. On the positive, this hotel belongs to the same owner as two other ones, and you can go and use their facilities...

Highly recommend staying here if you need somewhere reasonably priced and central. We got to stay in a house across the street which is part of the hotel but we still had access to all the hotel facilities. The staff were so helpful, remembering our names and helping with everything we needed. I even got a hug goodbye when I...

Whether you need washing done(same day service, they even washed my backpack :)!) or would like to visit some of the local tourist attractions they are on hand to help at all times of the day. The rooms were clean, cool and comfortable and...

A restored old building with all the Amenities. This place suited me so well, balcony to watch the world go by, Close to the Museums, Restaurants and bars. Pretty much a walk anywhere. The old area of Cartagena is being beautifully restored so it was nice being in an area of intact original housing. Great breakfast, the owners family all...

We liked this accomodation because you got a real breakfast included and the rooms were kept clean.It was a good location and the staff were helpful.The only problem was our constant struggle with wifi and as we stayed 7 days this was a huge source of frustration. We had to go to cafes and other outlets to get anything done...

Hotel Villa Colonial is a friendly and easygoing place to stay with clean rooms and good beds. Don't miss their breakfast served on the roof which is nice and with a good price. The staff was really helpful and friendly, Internet was fast enough and there was absolutely nothing to complain about.

The entrance is really quite nice, but that's where it ends. The room on the 2nd floor was just depressing. Small and uninteresting. Small crappy bathroom too. Nowhere to put anything in the room either. I lasted one night and moved on. If you're a backpacker it's fine, but it's not exactly luxurious. And having discussed this with other guests,...

Very nice staff. A comfortable basic room. Located near to many restaurants albeit in a slightly dodgy looking street, where prostitutes gather on the corner of la media luna after dark. A reasonable option for a quick business trip..........

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location is excellent, close to lots of affordable restaurants and a short walk to the old town. The hotel is very traditional with the rooms facing an inside courtyard. The breakfast is served on the top floor and the staff are wonderful. This hotel has a sister hotel, 5 minute walk, with...
