Positive Reviews

Ideal location in Cartagena's historical centre

Guests are in love with the location of the hotel. Thanks to being situated right in the middle of Cartagena's historical area, the property is within easy walking distance of many stores, eateries and attractions – the latter including Las Bovedas, the Walls of Cartagena and Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas.

Great service from staff

The hotel's customer service standards receive glowing comments from travellers. The staff members working at the property are labelled as very accommodating and friendly overall.

Nice breakfast to start the day

The hotel's breakfast offering receives compliments from guests. Not only is the fresh fruit and cooked selection of the breakfast deemed tasty, but the breakfast also has the advantage of being available to enjoy free of charge.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms missing features

Travellers are critical about certain aspects of the hotel's rooms. Along with being noticeably small on the whole, the rooms are said to be missing out on certain features – with some defined as not even containing windows.

Noise can be problematic

Guests claim that noise is a possible concern about staying at the hotel. The reportedly limited room soundproofing means that both internal and external noise can be a nuisance to comfort levels.

No lift available

The exclusion of a lift is a notable disadvantage about staying at the hotel. As stairs are mandatory to use for those residing on the higher floors of the property, visitors note that this can be particularly tricky for those with heavy luggage or mobility problems.
