This hotel is in a great spot - close enough to the old city and away from the noise of all the bars that are nearby. My friends and I got the three person room, which had two full beds and one single - super spacious. The room and bathroom were very clean and the staff were pleasant. The room...

We booked the hotel for 4 days and ended up staying 7. The staff was really friendly and made us feel at home. It's in an ideal location: close to La Plaza de Santisima Trinidad, some great restaurants, and many tourist locales. The wifi here was the best out of everywhere we've stayed in Colombia. And Lulu the dog was...

Centrally located right in the heart of Cartagena in the unvarnished part of the real part of town. An easy walk to the more touristic and stylish Old Town and basically everything else. There's a great luxury launder mat in 100 feet of the hotel. You have everything you need from a comfortable bed, good wifi, A/C, and a 40...

This hotel is perfectly located in Getsmani, central part of Cartagena. It's walking distance (less than 1km) from every single tourist attraction! The staff is friendly, helped by the cutest bulldog called Lulu. Rooms are clean and the only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I would have loved a minibar in the room. 4,5 it deserves!

Hotel Magdalena was everything we needed and more in Cartagena. The staff were flexible and extremely friendly. They were more than happy to store our things while we travelled to Santa Marta. The rooms were clean, quiet and best of all, cool. Wifi worked perfectly and the hotel dog named Lulu was always around for a giggle. Great place to...

This place really worked out well for us. Friendly staff. Good location just outside of the old city, in Getsamani. Neighborhood never felt unsafe. Friendly laundromat across the street. Great air conditioner in the room. Strong wifi. Digital tv for hdmi cord. Very comfortable. Simple room, but great value. We stayed two different times during our time in Colombia. If...

The room here is super small and has one little window which goes direct to the corridor. In the night you here everything from the neighbors and the room gets enlighted from the corridor light. For me the most horrible place on my whole Colombia trip. Ok, at least it was clean...but never again!

This hotel was in a great location for Getsemani, a really cool area for new small hostels, hotels, restaurants, etc. Air conditioning makes it great, but it also has really helpful staff at the front desk. They don't speak english, however. But that doesn't stop them if you motion them over to Google Translate at the nearby computer. They will...
