I think this is a really lovely hotel...you just could not get a better location in Cartagena, from the pool on the roof, which is open 24 hours a day you can swim looking at the lit up spire of the cathedral, and feel like a millionare as there never seems to be anyone else there at night, to the fantastic boho decorated rooms. the fantastic staff...I don't know their names, but the 2 of them seem to actually do everything...prepare breakfast, clean, fix things, look after the pool, make cocktails...mmm...such great mojitos, and they still always have a smile, and a joke.
the rooms are all different, mine, room 4 was just brilliant, the ac was powerful to the point that my room was at 18 degrees, and..if this is important to you..the wifi always worked. this hotel is lovely.
although, i would suggest, while the lounging areas around the atrium look fantastic, don't even think of relaxing here, funnily enough you never see anyone sitting in them, because you will be eaten alive. its mozzie central. but it looks wonderful..
i wish i could, however, say the same for the owner, who was having rennovations done, and i don't know about you, but i don't think it is quite the same exclusive retreat with workmen carrying around 30 bags of cement up the narrow stair to the roof when you are going for a swim, nor men rendering plaster when you would like a canoodle on the Moorish beds which have been turned onto their sides. it didn't ruin my experience, but, on the other hand, it didn't enhance it either. have to say i think we should have been told that this was going to happen.
but..it would not stop me from staying here again...its a beautiful hotel...if you can afford this, i suggest you bag it.
as long as there is not work going on, it just doesn't get better....
