My flight to the US was delayed by 24 hours due to a hurricane. A local friend from Cartagena suggested this as a good reasonably priced hotel. I was very impressed with the service, facilities, and price. The hotel was clean, quiet and very comfortable. The staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful. A remarkable hotel, for any budget.

The hotel is exactly the same standard you would find in any of the same chain worldwide. Nothing fancy but everything is exactly what you need. It's comfortable enough but I do prefer better bedding when possible. It's not my favorite but an extremely good option for the budget. It has one of the best price benefits you can find in the area.

I would stay there anytime .

Overall, it was a nice hotel. Smallish rooms, which is standard when we are doing our travels. There is always a large, security man at the main door. They have a little Cafe in the hotel (go traveling to eat, bask in the culture.) It is roughly ocho mil (8,000 COM) to the Centro. When you shower, turn the water on and soap, then turn it off while you scrub. I only say this because I almost called a typhoon ( the threshold of the shower is like a centimeter.) the only issue I had was with the front desk. The lady working there didn't seem to like tourists. We went down to extend our room and she said nope, no more rooms. So I on hotels.com and booked it that way. Hehe. It was about 54 USD a night, which isn't terrible. Thanks!

This Ibis suprised me. It seemed to be a step up in quality and service from many other Ibis. The rooms are a bit more decorative, the windows and blinds are good quality, blockout curtains. The bathroom was of a better fitout and overall it seemed an improvement.

Reception was very busy on arrival but good service and friendly staff.

My room looked out over the sea and it was quite comfortable. The bedding was the usual good quality Accor standards. There is a restaurant but we only went for breakfast. It was a good range, again much better than the usual Ibis breakfast. There is an outside terrace overlooking the sea which made for a relaxing breakfast.

There is a small bar in the lobby and a lot of comfortable lounges in the lobby. Outside is a shower to wash off the sand before entering the hotel. It is opposite the beach and there are many places for a swim or just to relax.

The old city is a 15 minute walk and we did this twice a day for the week. It's not a problem with safety. Around the hotel are some local bars, good for watching the sunsets, and a few local restaurants with a good range of reasonably priced food. We enjoyed our stay here.
