This hotel is in a prime location. It has lovely colonial architecture, a rooftop bar, decent beds, and is very clean. I would stay there again and recommend it. It's not too fancy, but very nice and the a.c. works.

I reserved three rooms at Monterrey Hotel during the month of April. The hotel is centrally located, across the street from the Clock Tower, in the Old City. The staff was friendly and very helpful in helping us book site seeing trips. Breakfast was included and quite good. The rooms are spacious and very clean. I recommend that you request...

The hotel was clean and a working air conditioner with a nice view and rooftop. If you aren't looking to spend a lot of money on a hotel this is a great choice. The location is perfect to the walled city and the pier and the rooftop view is a great one to watch the sunset and have a drink....

The Monterrey is a lovely old fashioned hotel. It's in a beautiful historical building which is well maintained with pool and bar on the rooftop. We spent many an hour sunbathing up there, watching the world go by below over a (very well priced) cocktail. The rooms are of a good size, air conditioned and with English speaking TV channels!...

Hotel Monterrey was a lovely clean hotel and it is pretty central to everything. Breakfast is included and it was pretty yummy. Staff was friendly. We ate at the restaurant one night and it wasn't very good. don't get the chicken cordon bleu. it was gross. The roof top pool was good. It had a great view of the city....

Great location in front of the Reloj which is the main entrance to the old city. Rooms in front of the buildings are great and with wonderful views and they also come with a balcony but are very noisy on weekends due to a dance club/bar next door. If you do not like the noise, then ask for a room...

This is the perfect hotel if you want to be in the center of Cartagena and want the basics, but nothing else. There was some mysterious hair in the shower that it was not mine... Yuk!!! I left it for a day to see of house keeping would clean it but nothing! Will be staying elsewhere when I go back...

We got lucky and had a room with a balcony on the square with an excellent view of the old city. Cheaper than staying IN the old city but located conveniently close! Good breakfast included and lovely rooftop terrace. Comfortable bed. Great service.

After not really finding the hostel we wanted to stay in in Cartagena, we decided to look for a good deal hotel. Monterrey seemed perfectly fine for that. The location is great, just outside the city walls, and Getsemani around the corner. Rooms are big, but ours smelled pretty humid each time we entered. The rooftop bar and terrace have...
