La Merced Royal afforded a comfortable surrounding with very affable staff. Plunge pool and roof top jacuzzi with views over the sea were more than enough to cool off. Well equipped accommodation with delightful breakfast room. Situated within the walled city within walking distance of all amenities but quiet and serene thanks to classic Spanish style atrium.

We spent 4 nights in this hotel and were absolutely amazed. What a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the historic center. Free gourmet breakfast every morning and a friendly staff. On our last day there, our flight wasn't until 11pm at night. Instead of having to carry our luggage with us all day, the hotel was so accommodating... More

La Merced Royal is a small (9 room) hotel with an excellent location in the historic center. The staff were all very friendly and the rooms very clean and modern. Everything is within walking distance (restaurants, sites, etc)

When I arrived I asked desk clerk Jose if the corporate rate I had been quoted included the taxes. He checked, and informed me that it did. When I checked out, he told me that since I was a resident of Colombia, the taxes would have to be charged to me separately. This would have resulted in me paying $210... More

I was in Cartagena for the film festival last March and stayed for a week at this boutique hotel right in front of the TAM theatre, by the walls facing the sea of the Old Town.

This was a great place. It was a little expensive but we did stay during the holiday. The location was great, just short walk to the center of town. There were several restaurants nearby and the breakfast was very good.
