Fodor's Expert Review Friends to Be

Calle del Espíritu Santo #10C–105, Cartagena, Bolívar, 130001, Colombia

A attractive, refurbished home on a popular but not too raucous street in Getsemaní is just steps away from some of the neighborhood's best restaurants. The hotel is dominated by a central open courtyard that features a plunge pool and lounge bar, which is great for the socially inclined but can be a problem for those seeking a quieter atmosphere. Rooms with tall wooden doors and windows surround the courtyard on two levels; they are comfortable, spacious, and have some charming details like wooden pallet bases for the beds and colorful mosaic tiling in the bathroom. The hotel is clearly aiming for a more budget-conscious market, so quality finishes are lacking, and rooms aren't very quiet.

PROS

  • location on a trendy street
  • good a/c in the rooms
  • exposed brick walls and wooden beams offer a historic feel at a budget price

CONS

  • noise from central courtyard
  • aimed at a younger, budget-conscious crowd
  • inattentive staff
