Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really nice hotel, wel situated in the centre of the old town. Very friendly personnel, beautiful room. And remarkably quiet for a hotel just in the centre. Although a very old building it is well maintained and clean. Breakfast is nice, in the patio is a beautiful place

Location is great. Walkable to many places. Hotel is very nicely decorated and when we walked into our room, it smelled so good it felt like a spa.

Breakfast buffet was included and had arepas, yogurt, eggs, etc. Staff at the restaurant and front desk were nice.

However, check in took forever (seems like it was oversold). The pool on the rooftop was very small and looked dirty. The Italian restaurant was not bad. But overall it lacked a bit of the ambiance I saw in other hotels. If you just want a clean room and hot shower, this is fine. I did love their toiletries and they conveniently offered a hand sanitizer bottle to go.

We chose Hotel Casa Don Luis mainly because of its very central location, and when we arrived we discovered that it had been inaugurated less than two months ago so everithing was new and in perfect condition.

We stayed in the room 212, very generous spaces and big and nice shower.

Our favourithe was the sunset from the rooftop swimming pool and the night dinner. For lunch we had great restaurants in the same street of the Hotel.

Bon voyage!

I wanted to love the hotel. The architecture is amazing, beautiful building and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. But I have to be honest, noise is an issue. The rooms facing the street are immediately facing a bar and the music can be very loud inside the room, plus it is noisy from street noise. The restaurant will have live music and that goes until 10pm or a little later. You can also hear the footsteps of people staying above you, there is not much to soundproof between floors. If you are a light sleeper and the people above you are early risers, you will likely wake up.

The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a nice breakfast included with the room rate. The location is great within the Walled City and can walk to a lot of different sights. I also appreciated the spot to change clothes or even grab a shower before heading to the airport when you leave later in the day.

We arrived in December two weeks before Christmas.Covid is still evident. We arrivied well before our check in time, so they were kind enough to take our luggage. The room was the deluxe (106...although on the second floor). The room overlooked the pool and had a nice little balcony. HOwever although the wood in the room was a great accent, the overall room was dark room even in the middle of the day with the curtains open. The hotel is beautiful and the pictures so it being a nice sanctuary from city. My wife and I have stayed at boutique hotels in Cartegena various times before (one was the previous August which was also times of COVID). We enjoyed the hotel, but found numerous issues. The safe didn't work in the room, the breakfast would be served with coffee but no spoon or sugar, there was no one to deliver our luggage to the room,etc. The daily breakfast is a platter of various breakfast items. In general the service was good, any issue was addressed asap, however there wasn't the smiles and upbeat attitude. We like small hotels because they make you feel like family and you bond with the people that serve you everyday (this was a 5 day stay). At this hotel, they served you but the family atmoshere or bonding did not take place. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but you need to go witht he mishaps and imperfections to enjoy your stay. Although we will consider the hotel again, its likely we will retun to one of the hotels that we found aligned better with our expections

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Casa Don Luis! The room we stayed in was nicer than we anticipated and had a very comfortable bed, an overhead shower, and a balcony overlooking parts on the city down below. The hotel has a nice dining area that is located in the center of the building with a very nice pool located not too far behind that. There were many stores and restaurants to choose from in walking distance so you definitely dont need to use any ride sharing apps or taxis unless you plan on venturing further outside of the wall. Overall I would say that I really liked staying at this hotel and could see myself returning in the future!

This was our first visit to Colombia with our 2 sons aged 10 & 8 & we couldn’t have asked for a better welcome to the country.
The hotel is simply beautiful & our room went beyond our expectations. With the hustle & bustle alongside the heat & humidity of the city, the hotel is a perfect sanctuary within the Walled City. We also felt safe & secure which helped make the experience more enjoyable & relaxing.
The breakfast was fantastic with a wide choice available to suit everyone. Andrea & Moises were exceptional with the service they offered us.
The hotel was extremely clean with the maintenance & room staff all diligent with their work; ensuring that the hotel & your room is nothing less than perfect.
The reception staff too are all really friendly & knowledgable about the local area with nothing too much trouble. It was really nice to have Brenda greet us on arrival.
A special mention goes to Eduardo who is an absolute asset to the hotel & was amazing during our entire stay. He was brilliant with our boys, checked in with us to see how we were & helped make recommendations when we asked. Again, nothing was too much trouble for him.
We would not hesitate visiting this hotel again or recommending it to anyone.

Very kind. Great service. Good English.
We arrived before check-in time due to other time constraints, but they were very accommodating. I found walking around the walled city to be overwhelming at times, but it was great to be able to quickly escape to such a convenient and beautiful location. Every interaction we had with the staff was wonderful.

We had an amazing stay here at the Don Luis, in Cartagena! This hotel is beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, the rooms were clean and spacious, and you’re just minutes away from many good restaurants and shops that the walled city has to offer. We would stay here again, in a heartbeat.
