Good 6.0
Very nice but extremely noisy
I was staying in a Suite - the room was very nice, spacious, clean, etc. The hotel is ideally located in the walled city (even though most cabs have no idea where it is!) - walking distance from everything. The main issue was that the room had a balcony on a very busy Plaza and the windows are so thin you hear EVERYTHING (especially the loud music) going on in the Plaza - until 4:00am! I barely slept. The AC also turns off by itself so you have to turn it on manually regularly.

Stop looking here you found it
Amazing hotel and staff right in the middle of where all the action is. Next to an incredible plaza and beautiful access to many amenities that are popular with tourists. The breakfast bar absolutely amazing and their Peruvian restaurant is excellent. Rooftop bar and pool/jacuzzi is really awesome with great views of the city. Absolutely loved the hotel. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful, comfortable hotel with great location
This was a lovely find with a great location within the walled city and just a short walk to Getsemani. The room was spotless, bed was comfortable and hot water was readily available. Our room was adjacent to a rooftop bar which was a little louder than ideal, but I anticipated street noise due to the location. There was actually very little street noise, just some music and bass noise that was not loud enough to interfere with our sleep. The hotel rooftop pool and bar is lovely. I would absolutely stay again.

unforgettable weekend
Awesome staying at Santa Catalina. Super nice and friendly staff. Spacious and well decorated room, super clean and comfortable. Sound proof window which is very important because streets in cartagena are very noisy 24x7. 5 stars restaurant on site. Small pool but very nice ambiance.

Great, clean, modern hotel in the walled city!
We had a great stay at Santa Catalina! The hotel is VERY clean and modern and has everything you need. It’s in a great location in the walled city and is walking distance to everything. The staff truly goes above and beyond and everyone was so nice and helpful! The rooftop pool is beautiful and is rarely crowded. We really enjoyed our stay here!

Very nice boutique hotel
This hotel was excellent!! the rooms were very clean and nice size, we had a balcony with street view which was nice. We were welcomed by Alexandra, She was very friendly and professional, Also Fabian was extraordinary, always greeted us and offered help. We had an issue at the restaurant but Elcapo took care of us, He was very attentive and nice. The only problem we had was that, as a silver member we were offered a free ride to the airport but the hotel didn't honored it, even though we showed the guy that was at the front desk the email to proof it... other than that excellent hotel!! The girls at the restaurant were very nice, can't say the same about the two gentleman working there....
