Overall is good

Posted 11-May-2016 on Hotels
Staff are very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood has many restaurants, one travel agency, markets and it is quite close to the castle. Disadvantages are the bathroom conditions: area so small and the toilet doesn't work we'll

Good location but that's about it

Posted 06-Apr-2016 on CheapTickets
Pros: Location
Cons: More helpful staff, a well fed cat that doesn't keep you up at night, larger rooms/bathrooms
Location: The location is great, lots of nearby restaurants that you can walk to. We took a taxi to the beach because it was so hot but you can walk
When we got to Hotel Marlin the power was out (not their fault). The staff showed us to our room via a flashlight but then left us to fend for ourselves without offering to provide any type of light source. We were able to use our cell phones for flashlights but they had low batteries and without power we were not able to charge them. Upon request they brought us a candle but we had no way to light it. Eventually the power came back on. The only window in the room opened up to the hallway so if we would have opened the window anyone walking by could look right into our room and it provided no breeze. There is a bar across the street with loud music playing well until the morning (I don't know but I would guess 5am). I brought earplugs but I could still hear the music through them. I eventually fell asleep but was woken up several times throughout the night by the hotel's cat meowing VERY LOUDLY outside our door. I'm guessing it was hungry which bothered me and if I would have had anything to feed him I would have. I was surprised the staff did not notice this and feed the poor little guy. The room we stayed in was incredibly small as was the bathroom (my knees hit the wall in front of me when I sat down and I'm only 5'5. We originally planned to stay at Hotel Marlin for 3 nights but checked out after the first night and relocated to Casa Tatis right around the corner. The rooms were the same price but much larger, no loud music or hungry cats to keep you up all night.

Busquen otro

Habíamos reservado una habitación con aire acondicionado y cuando llegamos la reserva era por un con ventilador. Tuvimos que poner la diferencia. No estaba limpia la habitación. La zona es céntrica bastante ruidosa por la noches porque es la cuadra de los boliches. Teníamos que pedir toallas siempre y nunca estaban disponibles. .. Busquen otro hotel

La peor experiencia en Cartagena

Posted 29-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Muy mal! Es engañosa la oferta porque al llegar te dan la peor habitación, sucia, sin aire acondicionado, mal ubicada y ruidosa! Al solicitar el cambio de habitación incrementaron el costo en más de un 50%, aun siendo temporada baja! Me cobraron un late check oír de 4 horas por el costo de un día entero. En general las instalaciones son sucias y viejas, en mal estado.
