I've seen people asking if there is a main suite for couples or something similar, is important that people understand that this is not a fancy place, but that doesn't make it a bad option. Is a simple, clean hotel located in the best area in Cartagena, a perfect place for people on a budget. It has a lot of...

Place was nice, it has a good shower was good, very safe, good air conditioner, the bad thing is that it really looks more like a hostel then a hotel. It has a great location, the price was a bit expensive. .......

If you are backpacking looking for a cheap place to stay and don't care about looks or cleanliness, this might be a good option for you. Otherwise you probably don't want to stay here. The room we stayed in was more like a prison cell with no windows and a tiny, tiny bathroom. We were a couple and they gave...

So, here are the positive things I have to say about Hotel Santa Cruz: 1) The water pressure in the shower was great; 2) The “buzz in” entry gives the building a more secure feel; 3) The air conditioning worked well. Unfortunately, that is the end of the list. We were disappointed immediately upon arrival as the rooms (we saw...

For only a little more than 2 beds in a hostel dorm (Cartagena is expensive) we found this hotel - it does everything you want for a short stay & is very clean & comfortable although the rooms are small & ours didn't have a window. We did have aircon & a private bathroom so it was perfect for our...

This place had everything required for the price we paid to stay the night. We only needed one night before we moved on and didn't want to pay through the roof when we didn't plan on spending much of that time In the room, Santa Cruz was the perfect choice. It was clean, had air con, staff were helpful, location...

We initially wanted to book a hotel a Bocagrande but a co-worker, originally from Colombia, advised us to find something in El Centro area if we wanted to have some local experience. We picked this hotel because it was right in the middle of the Centro area, and was really cheap (compared to others in the area). The entrance to...

Awesome staff for a wonderful city, great location, right where the action is. Best value for money. Beautiful breakfast area and flexible staff to start earlier and accommodate customer needs. We were 8 friends. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 10 days and moved room 3 times (our own fault as we kept lengthening our stay). All our rooms were lovely and spacious and the showers were really powerful and warm! The staff were lovely and helpful and cleaned the rooms very well each day. Breakfast on the balcony was lovely and there is a new...

We decided to stay in this hotel because it had a good location in the old city of Cartagena. The room was very clean and had air-con but it only had one small wooden shutter by the side of the door. When this was closed there was very little natural light in the room. A free breakfast was served on...
