Went for a few days and loved the place. Looked for a place not too expensive but close to everything and clean... Great AC very clean but the best thing was how hospitable the owners and staff were.... The last day we were traveling late at night and we were able to leave our bags and they let us come...

Hotel was clean and well located. Room was small and had no window with damp patches on the walls, which we didn't know when booking. We maybe ended up in the smallest room so don't know about others. There was building work going on which started from about 8 in the morning. Not sure when it ended as we were...

Cheap place that is miscalled Hotel. What a joke. Nice modern rooms but what's the benefit when you can't go to sleep before 2 cause people sitting around drinking and shouting. If you need new drinking mates it's your place.

I stayed here for a couple of nights when I was in Cartagena. The room was small and clean with a private bathroom. There was no hot water, but with the weather it was totally fine. The AC was very cold and strong. The staff was helpful, although they don't speak a lot of English. The location is convenient. Walkable...

I stayed here for a couple nights and I really liked it. Basic room, but very clean, great wifi and AC, and the staff is really nice. Cute little dog named Lulu as well. Reasonable rates. Nicely located near Media Luna and the Clock Tower, but on a side street so it's pretty quiet.

I stayed at Hotel La Magdalena for 4 nights in Jan-Feb., 2017 and found the place nearly ideal. The location, in Getsemani, just outside the old city, is great because you can get away from the tourist hordes and see a bit, albeit now gentrifying, of the less prettified city. It's a joy to walk the surrounding neighborhood, eat at...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are really big, the staff is very friendly and the wifi is great! The computer is the lobby is very handy if you need to upload anything.

Staff were efficient and friendly. The hotel was fairly easy to find and is a five minute walk from central, with a couple decent breakfast spots nearby. The room was basic, but clean and spacious. Water was cold, but given the heat this was not such an issue. The room also had a safe and AC.

Our room at Hotel la Magdalena was clean and the service was great. It was nice to be able to have a clean, private, air conditioned room for such a low cost in a very cute city! My only complaint was the shower. There was no hot water!
