Profile: Cartagena Walled City

Profile: Cartagena Walled City

The Cartagena Walled City, also known as Cartagena’s old town, is a maze of tall walls and stone fortresses only 10 km northwest of the city's center. You can lose yourself for hours on these charming streets, where magnificent churches and imposing mansions from colonial periods show off superior architecture.

Throughout the area, bustling plazas are crowded with sidewalk cafés and spirited bars. Old properties are drenched in vibrant colors, many with flower-filled balconies. You can even stay in some of them—many of the most ancient hotels are converted monasteries.

    Good option.

    The hotel is right in the center of the Old Town of Cartagena close to everything. The hotel looks nice inside and has some character to it. It was definitely a good value for the price I paid. The only thing I didn't like was that when I arrived there, there was nobody at the hotel, so I had to ask some lady in a nearby store to help me call them to have them come and let me in. It took more than 15 minutes of wait there in the street before someone showed up, but these are somewhat understandable because I was essentially the only guest in the hotel that day. However, they should have at least provided some guidance about what to do when I arriev there rather than just let me get there and find the door closed and nobody answering.

    GOOD: • Location is excellent. • WiFi works well too. • Individualistic Room Decoration – "interesting" and "different" • Staff – helpful and gracious BAD: – Bathroom / Shower / Toilet – minimalist and VERY small. Would not suit a "large" person or anyone mobility challenged – Breakfast no worse than could be expected – though boring that not on same premises but a 5' walk away: where the terrace situation however made it worth the walk :) – Beach Club Hotel "affiliation" was about 8 kms away, and not ON the beach itself.

    Great location and rooms; amazing value. Knowledgeable and helpful staff with lots of amenities at partnering hotels. Only drawback is it is a little noisy, but that's to be expected given the amazing location.

    Definitely busy street but it’s a good spot to experience Cartagena old city from the balcony, you see everything. Literally! The room is not as big as expected but it’s pretty decent size for the price you pay.

    The breakfast was really good but the hotel itself had no food facilities so we were told to have breakfast in another hotel.

    básico y lindo

    El hotel es un segundo piso, con las habitaciones. no cuenta con servicios adicionales de piscina y el desayuno lo traen de otra parte. Las habitaciones son muy lindas, limpias y cómodas, deben coordinar la llegada porque no hay recepción las 24 horas. Te ofrecen ir a otro hotel si quieres piscina.
