The location is in the historic old walled section of Cartagena. There are great restaurants in every direction and loads of people on the street going to them.
The hotel style almost seems British colonial--woods, wicker and lots of plants. (I am sure I've seen the same hotel decor in Singapore. ). There are multiple lounge areas, which helps keep the overall sound level low in the public areas.
All of the staff members are very friendly and helpful.
I think all of the rooms face into a courtyard so I specifically got a room on the 2nd floor to get some exterior light.. The room has a small balcony.
Room 201: The room is large with 1 bed, small bedside tables, alarm clock-radio, luggage racks, refrigerator, mini-kitchen sink, two cooking elements, countertop and cupboards. There are no cooking utensils, etc., but I did not ask the desk if there are some to borrow. (There are two superstore-supermarkets inside the old city, which means very close to the hotel.)
Note that I didn't mention any chairs; I brought in one from the balcony.
The lighting is good. There are plenty of power outlets (110v). The A/C is great and there is also a ceiling fan.
Wifi works great in room and lobby areas.
The bath is divided in two parts: large shower and toilet in one section; sink, closet and lots of shelving in second. The amenities are limited to soap, shampoo, shower cap and large towels. No face tissues or wash cloth.
The breakfast reminded me of a B&B. Set out for guest access are coffee, juices, milk, cereal and bread for toasting. You are given a wide range of egg choices for preparation by the staff. Your order will come with fruit.
