Casa Abril is the cheapest place I found in the worthwhile San Diego area. Cartagena can give off a sketchy vibe at night, but the walk to this B&B always felt safe. Great air conditioning, good wifi, warm staff. The walls are thin, but we stayed during the off season. The included breakfast is nothing to write home about.

I stayed with a friend in a small room on the garden area, this rooms have A/C and are very quiet, allowing you to comfortably sleep. The first time I intended to have a shower, there was no hot water but after asking the staff, they explained to me that there was a switch in the superior part of the... More

This place seemed pretty good at first. We liked the service from the people that worked there, we liked the room, price was alright. However, we encountered a huge problem there. We had one of the first floor rooms along the garden area. The third night we were there, it rained in the middle of the night. I got out... More

My partner and I did NOT like this B&B AT ALL! The service was really bad (from having to wait at the front desk for 15 minutes, while the receptionist was working on her finances just in front of me to not wanting to give a discount on the room rate for not having any hot water in our room...

My husband and I just spent a week in Cartagena and stayed at Hotel Casa Abril on Calle Quero. There are two locations, the other one is next to the Hotel Santa Clara. The hotel itself is in a perfect location in the San Diego district right next to El Centro. The walled city is such a small place that... More

The rooms are on the small size and the breakfast is nothing to write home about, but the location is fantastic, place is very clean, and people who run it are very friendly.

I booked this place based on very good reviews on one booking site and was very satisfied with my choice. The place is small (5-6 rooms) and is located on a quiet street near to San Diego Sq. in the historical center of Cartagena. The location is very good, easy to get everywhere on foot and the street feels less... More
