Our stay was for two days (New Year's Eve and New Year's Day).The hotel stay was excellent. The staff is very customer service oriented and the room was clean. The hotel does host a New Year's celebration. My wife and I elected to go to the celebration for about $350 total. I felt that the package was overpriced for what we received, but it is an option that you have should you want to celebrate New Year's in Cartagena.

Excellent boutique hotel in great location

Cons: No need for any improvements! Just keep doing what you are doing.
Location: Old town is great for walking. Excellent naval museum gives the history of the city: first cruise ship arrived over 100 years ago!
From the time we got there the staff were always friendly and helpful, going beyond the call of duty to help. Great breakfast staff, too. Rooftop pool has nice view of water and town, with bar nearby. Nice architectural features in hotel.

Construction made stay miserable

Let me begin by saying that the service was well beyond anything we could have expected. I've travelled a lot, and the service and attention of the hotel employees was hands down the best I've ever experienced. The hotel rooms are just big enough (we stayed in the deluxe) to not feel cramped, the bathrooms are very nice looking and spacious. The wifi worked great, and the breakfast is fantastic. The infinity pool on the roof was beautiful and they also have a bar. All of that having been said, I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone because they are seemingly attempting to drill to the center of the Earth. The construction starts around 9am Mon-Sun (yes, that's right) and goes on until about 4pm. If you're the type who likes to sleep in a bit while on vacation, forget it. If you don't mind waking up to drills, hammering, slamming and talking just outside your door, then by all means this is your hotel. Otherwise, find another place.
