Cartagena

Good Day

We will be in Cartagena for 5 days at end of August and would like to know if anyone can recommend a hotel close to historic center. Our budget is 40-60 USD. We just need a clean room with AC.

Many Thanks

You may find it difficult to find a hotel in the old city for that budget. You might want to check out hostels for your budget. If you click on "Cartagena Hotels" on the left side of the page, then on Speciality Lodging, you will find some of the hostels listed there. Some of the hostels are not bad.

Maybe Hotel Porvenir.. It is you get what you pay for. I have not been there myself but it was recommended to me.

This question was asked for a trip back in August 2012 so I think it's a little late to respond at this point. Not sure why you would have resurrected this thread pelorrucho?

Thanks bjsabina... I appreciate the input. Hope you have a good time in cartagena. Tourist season is almost over and the city feels a lot less crowded...yet we still have that cool december breeze at night.
