If you want the Cartagena experience then you should not stay here. Although accessible by taxi to downtown Cartagena, it is a little out of the way. As far as the beach goes, it is not great either. To find beautiful beaches in Cartagena you have to go further away.
The hotel itself has very spacious rooms. I booked a room looking towards the sea and over the pool rather than at the city. I was glad I did because all you see in city view rooms are a little bit if the sea and high rises that stand between the Hilton and the old city.
I only ate breakfasts at the Hilton (included in my rate) and they were below average in choice and quality. Fruit was particularly tasteless! I think next time I'll stay in the old city
