If you're traveling to Cartagena, you probably won't find anything better than this place. It has AC and Internet and a fabulous complementary breakfast fixed for you by the proprietor himself. It's generally clean and quiet and almost on the beach.

We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great, right next to the beach. The breakfast changed everyday and was on par with top hotels. The week before we had been in the Hilton in Quito and Brian's breakfast was twice as good. Our room face the road which was a little loud but it's fine considering the cost. The...

Hotel Pueblito Playa was just what we were looking for. Reasonably priced, clean rooms, perfect location and a 5 star breakfast! Alejandro was very nice and accommodating. I booked a single room in error online and he immediately took care of us and put us in a double room. Richard is a phenomenal cook and prepared a special breakfast every...

I think I posted the wrong review last time ! Sorry. Thank you for kindly writing this review. So glad you enjoyed my breakfasts, unfortunately my name is Brian - you must have a good night out ! Yes, cold water showers are pretty usual in Cartagena, but with the year round temperatures, most people seem quite happy with this....

The Location: it is just off of the beach in a great area for swimming and hanging out. If you're travelling alone you might be careful of the night life around there though. But I digress. The Value: Very good. The Hotel: Air conditioned. Great service. Free wifi, but scattered connectivity. No hot water which was okay given the climate....

Thank you for your kind review. We had some problems with WiFi but this has been corrected. Your comment about the area is interesting as I myself have never encountered or heard of any problems. Interestingly many tourists who have travelled throughout South America tell me that they, paradoxically, find Colombia the safest country. SINCERE apologies for the condom, truly...

I stayed here with my girlfriend for in total 5 nights. We chose this hotel because we had travel companions staying close by and needed accomodation in the area. Speaking little Spanish, we had no difficulties getting to the hotel by taxi. It's right by the beach and there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Rooms are obviously not comparable...

Hotel Pueblito is situated in a safe area. One street off the beach. 25 minute walk from the wall city or a 6,000 peso taxi ride. The staff are very lovely and are willing to help. They give you an information sheet with all you need to know about the area. Clean rooms that are made up daily. Great breakfast...
