My parents, brother and I (mid 20's) had a wonderful stay at Pueblito Playa for 5 days in early January. After struggling to find a budget hotel that had air-conditioning (a must in Cartagena!), breakfast, AND a good location, we stumbled across this gem of a hotel. We were very happy with our modest yet comfortable, clean and air conditioned...

The rooms were very clean, but nothing special. However, the owner, Brian, and the staff were amazing. Brian printed out a guide to Cartagena they had made, complete with restaurant recommendations, and everyone was very friendly. The location is one block from the beach and a reasonable walk (20-30 minutes) from the walled city. The breakfast was two delicious courses...

What more could I ask from a review. It´s true we are not a ´boutique´or luxury hotel, but we try to offer great value for money and we do pride ourselves on our breakfast. Glad you appreciated it. However we are continually up grading our facilities to provide an even better service. When you are next in Cartagena, please pay...

The location is very good, silent and close to the beach, just 2 min walking. The best part of the hotel is that the owner is also the cook and his breakfast was the best ever. Mr Brian he's the best.

Myself and my girlfriend (mid-twenties), stayed here for 3 nights recently after finding it on hostelworld. Perfect for a short stay in Cartagena, located a 5-10 min taxi ride down the road from the historic centre in the upmarket Bocagrande area. The staff are outstanding; probably the most helpful and knowledgable we've come across after travelling around Colombia for a...

The hotel is very nice. The staff is extraordinary friendly and the breakfast is outstanding. The couple who runs the place is very kind. The hotel is colorful and has a caribbean vibe. To get to the beach you only have to cross the street. We loved staying here. Thank you very much for everything. Martin & Lisa
