If only my house was as lovely! Large and spacious, wonderful rooftop pool. Incredible bathroom. On top of it all, it cost less than we had expected. After days touring the beautiful City of Cartagena, returning to the hotel was a perfect rest from the heat. The rooms are soundproofed, which you only notice when you go outside. Everyone who...

There are many, many options in Cartagena - many of them are "Boutique" hotels that have opened with the surge in tourism. Some of them are quite charming with all the old world features of beams and tile floors. The San Diego 974 Suites are nothing like these in their decor but if you are looking to accommodate a family,... More

San Diego Suites is a amazing place to stay in Cartagena. Rooms are spacious & luxurious. Swimming pool is a compulsory plus because you may be bored to wake up early every day to go to Cartagena's port to take the boat for any beach. Stuff was extremely helpful and friendly. The place was safe and the door was guarded... More

I booked to stay here over New Year 2013/14. When I arrived at the hotel, I was told that, because of problems with their electricity supply, they could not accommodate me in the hotel, but had arranged a room at another hotel instead. I was not happy about this, but at this point had no reason to disbelieve Janier, the... More

Went Back to Cartagena after 10 years, couldn't have picked a better place for such a trip. Perfect location, amazing staff, beautiful rooms and so spacious. I felt safe, all needs met, from the front desk, office, housekeeping all very polite, helpful and well mannered. I will be back.

Traveled to Cartagena with family and friends and needed apartment style accommodations for our large group. The junior suite is large with multiple couches; though they are not pull out couches, they can fit an average sized adult to sleep. The hotel was very relaxed about the number of people in each apartment with no additional charges, which was greatly... More
