We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights of the 4 that we were supposed to stay. We had many problems with the rooms and had to be moved twice. Our biggest problem was security and safety. The MASSIVE windows to the rooms didn't lock and didn't even have screens on them. We were worried that anyone could enter at...

That was my third time satying at Zalmedina and probably the last. Most of the staff has been replaced by people that are lacking social and business skills except by two ro there people that work at the front desk and speak English well. I could notice that there is a NEW administration since my last two visits. They seem...

I am suriprised to see so many good reviews here, because for everybody in our group this was just horrible place to spend one night and to imagine that you could come here for actual holidays makes me desire to do something for the world peace and poor people.

I stayed at Zalmedina one more time and I had another excellent stay. The restaurant area looks better now and the food is very good. There is a new hotel being built in front of Zalmedina and that will take away most of the ocean view, I think. The good thing is that you just go downstairs and cross the...

When we arrived, we were too early to check in, so the hotel kept our bags in a locked room while we went for lunch. After checking in, the elevator was...

I stayed here in June of 2011 when I came to Cartagena to learn Spanish. The hotel is located in Bocagrande, the modern section of Cartagena. That is the area of town where the upper middle class and rich Colombians own timeshares and apartments. The hotel itself is very modern and has EXCELLENT air conditioning systems. That is a huge...
