Reviewed 27 May 2014

The hotel was nice, there is a restaurant and a grociery store 1min walk away, and a bus stop out front that takes you into the tourist places. That being said its in a poorer section of town and about a 1hr walk to get to the port. Its the cheap price you pay for the location. I'd still suggest staying here.

Reviewed 13 January 2013

The hotel is on a busy street some miles from the centre in a dull and boring area.

Staff was dull too and spoke some English.

The room was dull too with a small TV with mostly Spanish channels and some English (CNBC, BBC World) but the English did not come through well.

Free Wifi internet was very slow in my room and it seemed that all streaming media was blocked. So you can only use e-mail services and the like.

The bathroom had a tub and was reasonable clean .

There is free parking space in front of the hotel but that can be full at times from shoppers.

Breakfast was not included in the room price but there is a bar on ground floor where you can have a breakfast to order. This bar is used by workers who meet there and have some breakfast before going to the job so it can be noisy at times

So, a hotel that is not too expensive but I would recommend to pay some extra euro's to be in a more lively in or closer to the centre.

This is a good hotel location for reaching the racetrack of Cartagena as it is only a 10 min drive. However, the room was ok quality but the breakfast and meals were not very good and the check in staff were a bit weird in helping you with anything.

The hotel is in quite a run down area compared with the southern part of the city. We had problems finding it but on arrival found plenty of parking.
Room was a good size, but tired furniture and a window that looked out into a enclosed yard.
Corridor was very dark, lights operate on movement sensor, and the room power needed the key card to be inserted on arrival, a tricky operation in the near darkness.
At 7.30pm the receptionist advised us the restaurant was closed (it was a Sunday) but directed us to an excellent local tapas bar.
In the morning we tried to order a hot breakfast and the rather surly chef/bar tender just said "not possible" and would only offer toast and coffee, rather than any of the items on the menu.
Not very good value, we paid £57 room only (via Lastminute) for a basic 3 star hotel.

parking....difficult...normally full of "work vans"
Restaurant.....closes at 9pm.
breakfast....extra
beds.....child size & the bedding smells of bleach
Noise ALL night from locals
TV in room is 14 inch only
Hotel says it has internet access....but it never works & the manager/receptionist just shrug the shoulders when you ask them to repair it.
Location not good....2km from city centre & any restaurants, although there is a good kebab shop close to hotel.
Will not stay there again
