From top to bottom, Casa El Carretero is a wonderful hotel with a beautiful design, very comfortable rooms, an incredible rooftop terrace with views of the city, and an incredibly kind and attentive staff. With a limited number of rooms, it feels like your own home in Cartagena and the staff certainly treats you like family. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Getsemani and within minutes you can walk to great restaurants, exciting nightlife, and the most well-known sights in Cartagena.
I absolutely recommend Casa El Carretero to anyone who is looking for a place in Cartagena. Without a doubt, you will leave loving the place as much as I do.

This was my 3rd stay within 12 months at Casa El Carretero. I feel it's getting better and better every time I come. The staff already knows me well and the guys are extremely nice people whose only intention is to serve you and make sure you have a pleasant stay. It's a really nice place in a really great location. A few months ago a new bar (Demente) opened up just around the corner which is really a wonderful location for drinks and tapas. Otherwise the entire area called Getsemani is a really really nice place to stay with a lot of cool restaurant and bar options. I know this was not the last time that I will have visited Cartagena and stayed at this place.

I would definitely recommend Casa El Carretero hotel to anyone who's planning on experiencing both Cartagena's cultural richness and its amazing nigh life.
This cozy and private hotel, located in the heart of Cartagen's Getsemani District, offers a great atmosphere, a delicious cuisine and amazing roof roof garden with a great view.

Casa El Carretero is an absolutely amazing hotel! I recommend it to anyone visiting Cartagena. It is perfectly located, near a traditional plaza and walking distance to a huge number of fun bars and restaurants, as well as the harbor. The hotel itself is beautifully redone. The rooms are exceptional, the bathrooms impressive (waterfall showers!), and the pool on the roof is outstanding. The service was amazing! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Each morning started with a wonderfully prepared breakfast, served by smiling faces. I can't recommend the hotel highly enough and will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: They're all honestly great!

I spent one of the most amazing week ends in Cartagena, in Casa el Carretero, the service and hospitality is incredible and the Boutique Hotel is very cozy! Totally recomended! It is located in one of the best places in Cartagena, a neighborhood called Getsemani. You can find in this neighborhood, the vibrant life of a tipical neighborhood with the chick new restaurants and bars. The breakfast is totally customized to your tastes. You can choose from a tipical Cartagena breakfast or a more light fruits and juices.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very nice...depends on the number of people that you want to acomodate
