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.... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

The staff was friendly and very helpful, amenities fine, rooms had everything you need. The location couldn't have been better. The only criticism we had was that the pool water was too warm --- but that's Cartagena weather.

Firstly, this is a great location for a hotel, facing the clock tower just outside of the walled city of Cartagena. Now, I stayed here in 2010, and paid a bit more at that time than I did just last month, which seemed like a great bargain. The hotel is quaint and the rooms are very nicely appointed. Breakfast was... More

We were greeted at the door and escorted to our room promptly. Check-in took 30 seconds. Very very much appreciated. The hotel is smallish approximately 30 rooms. It was very quiet during our stay. There was a Zumba marathon at the Convention Center across the street one night and it wasn't noticeable so outside noises obviously weren't and issue. The... More

First off, this hotel is in an absolutely perfect location. Just a minute walk from the clock tower gates (entrance to Centro) and right on the edge of the Getsemani neighborhood. You could not ask for a better location. Room was comfortable but minimally decorated. Comfy bed, decent bathroom. It's not a resort or super fancy but it's a comfortable... More
