This hotel is the worst hotel in Cartagena. Stay away. The rooms are moldy and the beds are super uncomfortable. I don’t know how other reviewers can qualify this place with so many stars. Do not count with the old city restaurant because is impossible...More

Amazing location right across the street from the beach and walking distance from the fort. The rooms are basic but clean. Hotel is a little old but they are renovating. The restaurants are good. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay again

About
Description
A city of great conquests and conquistadors wait for you in the magical Colombian Caribbean. We open the doors to a strategic hotel tower located facing the renowned ‘Bocagrande’ beaches, overlooking the ...More Cartagena Bay and combining the modern city with the majestic colonial city. Fun and enjoyment are guaranteed in a Caribbean and Cosmopolitan corner, loaded with history that will infuse you with its everyday tropical and “Garcia-Marquezian” reality. During the day you may visit the historical center with its colorful architecture, its monumental walls and narrow streets. Don’t forget to make a stop at the San Felipe de Barajas Castle, a huge building that has witnessed the heroic Colombian battles. Additionally, an intense night awaits with many emotions with music, shows and an exquisite gastronomical offer that you may enjoy at our hotel or booking a romantic evening at our Café de la Plaza de San Pedro restaurant, located in the best area of the walled city.

It is very near from the old city like a 10-15 minute walk, or 4-5 minutes on a cab, and very safe to walk in te area. hugs
