First and foremost, the AC in the room was a lifesaver. Location was primo, right where you want to be in Getsemani and two blocks from the wall was safe and super convenient. The internet worked fine when it did but did not work every morning. There was construction outside on the street which won't be done anytime soon. Music...

I am at the airport flying back to the US after several days at the San Felipe Hotel. I chose this hotel solely because it was inexpensive and within walking distance of the Historic Center/Walled City. I got so much more than I expected! Although simply furnished (and, as expected, had no hot water. Not a big deal in hot...

Breakfast is simple but good enough. There is some work being done inside the hotel and some road works being done on the street outside but this...

I traveled to Cartagena, Colombia, from Oct. 3rd to Oct.10th and stayed at the San Felipe Hotel. Even though this hotel is truly BUDGET in every which way possible, the Colombian owners of this establishment should be ashamed of themselves!! The bed mattress was hard making it difficult to sleep at night, the shower hardly ran any warm water, the...

I have been to so many places and hotel before but I must say this hotel isn't the best although but it's clean, conformable, good air conditioning and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast(the same every day) but fresh and tested. And the most important thing for me was, that all main turist points were just by walking distance. .PERFECT...

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for 4 nights and we really enjoyed. The room is big, the air con works well and the cold shower is not a problem in Cartagena, since the water will come out hot anyway. The breakfast is simple but always have a good variety of fruits, breads and a selection of local food. Moreover...

We have stayed here a few times now and like it a lot. It is nothing spectacular but ticks all of the boxes and is good value for money and well located for both Getsemani and the Old city. Rooms are clean, comfortable and have little balconies looking on to Parque Centenario. The breakfast is good and the staff is...

The hotel is in the process of renovación, but It is still a good option if you are looking for a clean, affordable and central place to stay in Cartagena. Although they don't speak English the staff is very nice and helpful. Breakfast was included and it is OK.
