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.
