“Perfect Hotel for the Business and for the Holiday Traveller”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Since about 4 years I use this hotel when in Barranquilla. In many ways it is the perfect hotel for the business and holiday traveller: Huge rooms, good working a/c, comfy beds, very good breakfast buffett and a nice outdoor pool. The location of the hotel is very good - just across the street is a big shopping mall with supermarket and lots of restaurant and the industrial area on "Via 40" is a 8 min taxi drive away . The pool is in the shadow of the hotel building in the afternoon.

This is a 5 star hotel, so there is not too much to say about it. I stayed there for the Carnavales, when every hotel charges 200 or 300% extra. The room was perfect, quiet, beautiful, and the breakfast is ok. Location: ok, facing the Buenavista Mall, where you can find everything.
Nice hotel, but you just have to pay A LOT for it, even in non-Carnavales season (the whole year, except 5 days in February). If your company decided to send you there -as was my case- enjoy it. But you can find better options at 50% the Dann's price, for example the Sonesta or the Estelar Alto Prado.

I have been to the Hotel Dann Carlton in Barranquilla numerous times and always feel at home. Its a safe, smart, and great choice in Barranquilla.

From the second you arrive the bell boys (botones) are very friendly and attentive. They are always willing to go out of their way to arrange a trip to local destinations or just give you advice on where to find something in Barranquilla. The girls in reception are very nice and helpful at getting you acquainted with the hotel and its amenities.

On one trip one of my fellow travelers hurt themselves at a local bar and the staff was immediately offering to help with a doctor, medicine, extra pillows and ice. We ended up needing the help and it was a relief to have people there willing to help, even if it was not there job.

There are plenty of associates that speak great English and can help those whose Spanish is lacking. The reception can also arrange for a translator to travel with you if needed.

The Dann is across the street from the very popular Buenavista shopping mall, which has a movie theater, dining options, supermarket, and tons of stores. It is located in the good side of town that is safe to walk around at all times, and is minutes away from the closest beaches.

I just saw some new pictures online of the hotel and it looks like they have remodeled their guestrooms, lobby, business center, and gym. It has a modern and clean look, while still showing off the bright tropical colors that are synonymous with Colombia.

Finally, I really enjoy a good meal and a few drinks at the top of the hotel in the revolving restaurant(El Giratorio). Nothing like watching the sunset over the Caribbean high above the city.

Room Tip: There are several room options from basic king bedrooms to suites. Ask to see one or two different o...

Nice option but nothing special. Brekfast poor in fruits and low calorie options. Pricey for what it offers. Nice swimming pool, sauna ok and a usable gym. Internet service was usable and free.

A/C did not work properly in room 1005. Finally realized for A/C to work thermostat had to be set on "heat". Beds were super firm almost board like. No face cloths in bathroom. Had to have broken security latch on door fixed.
Comes with free breakfast bar that was mediocre at best.
Nice mall right across the street but this adds to noise from buses and taxis. Better food for the price in the Food Court of the mall verses the hotel, recommend the "Buffalo Grill" there.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the backside away from the highway for even less noise.

I recently returned from a 3 night stay at the Dann Carlton. I was impressed by the room size and the amenities (new flatscreen tv, marble bathroom, in-room safe). The staff was nice enough, and I was impressed at how quickly they came to the room when we had questions / issues (our lights and air conditioner were problematic). On the downside, the room thermostat was impossibly complex, and the hotel gym was in very poor condition. For people interested in a good workout, I recommend the gym across the street in the mall. Finally, the kingsize bed was really firm, similar to sleeping on a platform bed. Overall I'd rate it as 4 stars, good but simply not 5 star caliber.

Very nice lobby with fantastic staff at check-in. Rooms are very spacious and clean, beds are a little too firm. Great breakfast, and again the staff was wonderful. Right across the street from a huge mall. Restaurant on top floor was very nice, but quite pricey. I'd definably stay again.
