Very Clean, Modern, Tall Ceilings, & Confortable
I loved my stay at this hotel, is conveniently placed in the tourist part of Cartagena. the breakfast is good and the rooms are even better. Modern style comfortable beds, Cold and Hot Water, air conditioner plus ceiling fan. Nice size TV and closet space. My room had a great balcony with view of the city. The pool on the rooftop is perfect for sitting and talking. I highly recommend this place to stay. Next door is good cafe and restaurant. Ask for the security safe key at the reception so you can safely store your stuff.

Quaint place
Nice little place. Clean, comfortable bed. A/C worked well. Nothing fancy but would stay here again. Good location...block from Clock Tower, so you are a little further from the noise. Check in was easy. They have a hot breakfast on the roof top that was very good!

Cartagena Walled City Hotel
The hotel is in a good location, inside the Walled City of Cartagena - historical part of the city. This is just about all that is good about this hotel. The hotel itself is old and very tired, not a 3 star. There is a disco nearby and after our first night, we asked to change the room. The hotel is small though and they did not have another room available. The reception staff were nice and the guy at the desk offered another hotel nearby that we can move to (part of the same chain). The hotel was called The Ethnic Thematic Hotel, a newer hotel with themed rooms. The room we were offered was very cute - Carnaval de Baranquilla. So we moved and enjoyed the rest of our stay there. The Thematic hotel was even smaller than Balcones and there was not always a person in reception there and alsk we had to go to Balcones for breakfast as Thematic did not have a restaurant, but that was OK, as the hotels were close to one another. The breakfast was quite basic, but OK. I would have not expected more from it anyway. PS. says Check in at Balcones De Alheli is 2pm, but in fact it is 3pm as we had to go away for an hour when we arrived at 2pm and come back later. This needs to be corrected. I attached photos of the Ethnic Thematic Hotel as Balcones de Alheli did not look nice and nothing like the pictures I saw on, so was not worth taking any pics.

Fair 4.0
overpriced, not romantic
At $119 it was overpriced, very convenient location but a small room and smallish bed with no frills. Breakfast fine, but not a good place for a couple and shouldn't cost more than $70

Good 6.0
Spend a few extra bucks and stay somewhere else.
This is basically a glorified hostel. The bathrooms were dirty. Puddle of water around the toilet and main bathroom drain. Walls could use a paint job, no lock on the safe, no iron etc. Shower floors were dirty. Wore my flip flops to shower. The roof top pool was beautiful.
