We spent one night here and it was a fantastic choice. Lovely, comfy beds; beautiful decor, delicious buffet breakfast with lots of choice; clean and central. Tiny pool, friendly staff and a feel of old colonial Cartagena. Would highly recommend.

Not a top hotel. but ideal location with comfortable room. Furniture is a bit dated, but everything worked. Breakfast was cramped and could be improved. Coffee from an urn became stale. That said it was friendly and in the heart of the old town so more than acceptable.

Casa India Catalina is not one of the elite hotels in Cartagena, but it doesn't have to be to be good. You will get the old world feel when you stay there. The staff are extremely polite, helpfu, and knowledgable. The rooms are clean. We stayed two different times on our trip to Cartagena - the first time the room...

Great location in the heart of the city which makes everything close to walk to. Comfortable room with good air conditioning. Very good breakfast in the morning. Very helpful staff. We stayed there 4 nights. The hotel was surprisingly quiet on Saturday night when it seems everybody was out in the streets all night.

Casa India was the perfect place to stay when we first arrived to Cartagena. The are able to arrange airport transfer, help in finding safe taxis, and give great directions when you need them. Many of the staff know some basic English and they are polite and helpful as well. The stairs are quite steep, it would be a challenge...

We were expecting so much from this hotel but we're so disappointed - the best thing about it is free coffee/tea in reception...we had room 402: 68 steps up although there is a lift but think it's only for baggage use. The staff are very friendly but the room was badly organised and cramped, the bathroom tiny, so much so...

We stayed here for three nights. The room we had (on the top, fourth floor) was nice and clean with a huge bed and a big shower. It had A/C which was nice because it got quite warm without it. They serve a decent breakfast (buffet style). The swimming pool is nice but small and the water is quite cold....

In a city where accommodation seems overpriced for nothing special, this hotel is a very good choice. Its location in the old town could hardly be better and with the reception constantly manned there's no worry about security. Rooms are nothing special though they are comfortable and well maintained. The small, indoor pool right next to reception can be used...

This is a very nice hotel in the heart of the Old City. The buildings are beautiful and it is a very walkable city if you can stand the heat and humidity. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet included fruit, juice, coffee, lots of baked choices, rice and beans, and scrambled eggs. The wifi worked pretty...
