After our last minute cancellation, we found our safe haven at balcones! We stayed at the suite and it was very spacious and surprisingly not so noisy considering the dates we stayed (New Years eve). Everyone was very pleasant and nice ! The breakfast was good, could be a little better and the hotel was spotless ! Cute rooftop !...

The best part of this hotel is the location. Right in the middle of Cartagena's Old City. 5 minutes walk to Old City sights (the Wall surrounding the Old City, Plaza de los Conches(bars), Place de la Inquisition, bars and restaurants etc). A simple breakfast is included on the nice rooftop terrace. The staff are extremely helpful, but don't speak...

I would definitely recommend this hotel! This hotel is in a great location. Room is very simple but had a mini fridge, clean and comfortable. had a balcony that looked out over the street and allowed me to watch all the action from the room. Breakfast was served each day on the rooftop patio and is made to order. Although...

The first days my girlfriend and I had a great time here. The staff during the day was very helpful with all of our doubts about Cartagena. Unfortunately, the last day at the hotel, the night shift attendant (Arturo), went into our room while we were out for dinner and went through our luggage. We found the hotel master keys...

This is a shabby hostel with too many layers of paint masquerading as a hotel. Go to any one of the other little hotels that are actually well-run and decent in Cartagena. Don't come here. The rooms are small and pokey, the place smells and is old and in BIG need of a facelift. And the staff are useless.

So far it was a very good hotel. The room is cleaned everyday, breakfast is served in the terrace with coffee, juice, jamon, eggs and sometimes some fruit. My room was in the 3rd floor Rm 304 with a balcony. It is humid in Cartagena and my air conditioned room was great. The Wifi works on and off, however, if...

I stayed here for a night between leaving Santa Marta and catching a flight from the Cartagena airport the following day. I arrive a bit late, after 9 pm and was greeted warmly, but by someone who didnt speak any English. He couldnt find my booking for the first 10 mins even though it was written right in front of...

The hotel is quite simple but still very nice! We had huge a room with 2 king size beds and a large balcony (the top balcony above the "tennis" store on the pics). Even though you are in the middle of the historic center, I slept very well - even though you have the normal downtown noise on the street....

As others have mentioned, the hotel is in a great location because you can walk to El Centro, it is half a block from Parque Fernandez Madrid (but then again mostly everything is walking distance within the Old City). TIP ON DIRECTIONS: Ask the driver to go to Calle Segunda de Badillo , rather than trusting Google Maps (which just...

“Room 306 is a nice large room with 2 queen beds and a wrap around balcony on the 3rd floor, providing a nice view of the street, and usually in the shade. However, it is noisy early in the morning exactly because of this.”
