Bantu Hotel By Faranda Boutique
Ranked #15 of 158 Hotels in Cartagena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 March 2015

Located within the walls of the old town, virtually everything of interest is just a short walk away. Rooms are very large with comfortable beds, and great hot water for showers.Rooftop lounge will catch the evening breezes. Breakfasts are adequate. Would certainly stay here again.

I got married in Cartagena and recommended the hotel to all my guests traveling for the wedding. The team at Bantu was extremely helpful in organizing the booking and the stay of all my guests. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The other hotel facilities including the pool are also great. Food is also very good. I highly recommend Bantu for travelers visiting Cartagena.

Short notice booking. Wanted to stay in the Old City inside the walls. Beautiful and thoughtfully laid out old mansion. Rustico and colonial Spanish influenced. Two toucans in the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Centrally located in old Cartagena. Great place to spread out and explore then return for a break.

The hotel is really charming with two Toucans - one of whom seems to have a liking for eggs. We had very small rooms due to the hotel being fully booked, but I believe most of the other rooms are larger. Even though they were small the rooms & beds were very comfortable.
The staff are very helpful in making restaurant reservations & sorting out taxis.
The location was very good.

A very nice hotel, perfectly located in terms of the city, close to the main square. It is a hotel that has a lot of character and a rustic charm, yet is also very modern and at the same time. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is very nice too. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is the best one i have stayed at in all Colombia. Our room (the orika one) was located on the 2nd floor and it was great, very spacious (even with a second twin bed upstairs), nicely decorated and well-functioning air condition. The bathroom is small but offers everything you need, plenty of hot water and the best smelling bath products I have ever used.
The building itself is beautifully restored, with small patios that are perfect for relaxing. The two tucans are amazing as well.
Breakfast (buffet) offered everything we needed, eggs were prepared according to our wishes and again the staff couldn't have been more friendly (I cant stress this enough, all of the staff is so lovely)
The hotel is located in the old city center, close to everything. In some rooms it could get a little noisy since there are a lot of shops and street vendors on the street behind the hotel but that is not the hotel's fault.
All in all Bantú and the entire team made our stay amazing, I will definitely come back and recommend it 100%
Gracias otra vez al equipo del Bantú!

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms on the second floor, since first floor rooms are entered through the patio a...
