Reviewed 14 December 2013

I stayed here in August, I loved this hotel so much that I extended my stay instead of going to a hostel. The rooms are quiet and comfortable, plus they have TV. The pool is cold but nice. It is located a few blocks from Calle Central, which is good because street noise is minimal. The rooftop view is the best! And the cook and cleaning lady is so nice and sweet. Practica Español aqui!

I stayed here far too many nights for a variety of nights. Needless to say, it was great and what I needed at the time. This hotel was included in my travel package, and served as my home base throughout 4 months. It is safe, and had a great breakfast.

We stayed in the old part and the room was fine. Although we didn't swim, others did and seemed to enjoy it.

Great views from the upper part and a great place to relax in the evening or morning.

The person on the desk was great. I'd lost my credit card on arrival at the airport. It took a lot of attempts to contact the bank and she was very patient as she put me through to the international operator as well as having someone deliver a phone card. She made things a a whole lot easier.

We stayed in both the older part and the newer. The older part is not safe. The floor is split and you can see straight through. it is very noisy. The stairs are not safe to the older rooms. There was no hot water and the sheets were so thin that I could see the mattress. The newer section where we stayed later in our trip was much better. The pool was not usable, but the breakfast was good. I don't think I would stay here again and risk staying i the old section which is awful and unsafe.

Prices have gone up since my last visit here almost a year ago, but I still found the Cacts Hotel clean, friendly and super convenient, assuming you want to stay just east of Sabana Park, rather than right downtown, or somewhere east of immediate downtown.

We stayed at Hotel Cacts a total of three nights, two at the beginning of our vacation and one at the end. The hotel is conveniently located near several good restaurants, main commercial avenue, and large park. The staff were helpful and friendly and speak English, if you don't speak Spanish. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, then you may be disappointed. However, if you want a simple, clean room with a great breakfast included (rice and beans, eggs, fresh fruit, fresh juice, toast, etc.) and free wifi then Hotel Cacts is a great value. Just be advised that there is no elevator.

Room was filthy. No hot water. Cobwebs in every corner and dead bugs hanging from them. Walls in the bathroom were bulging from water damage. No AC (but that doesn't figure into this review).
When I complained that the hot water wasn't working and the room was filthy, they just smiled and didn't even offer a new room or explaination.
