Stayed two nights. Hotel is only one block from Trinidad Square, a place to hang out and dine in the evenings. Owner and staff were very nice. A/C and ceiling fun worked nice. The only negative: The hotel did not clean the room nor exchanged towel. No breakfast included.

Hotel was in a neighboring location to the walled city. Excellent location and best value for the money. Owner is incredibly conscientious about security and very friendly. The neighborhood had its own character and social life. I always felt very safe. If you have a sense of adventure, this is a great location. Obviously it is not a 4 of 5 star hotel, but in my opinion, the best value for the money. Several neighborhood bars and Salsa bars very close by.

I spent five nights here, and my only complaint would be the ungodly heat, which isn't really the hotel's fault. This neighborhood will likely start seeing a boost in business, as Old Town Cartagena is surprisingly expensive for Latin America. If you don't mind the walk, this won't hurt your wallet and is close to just about everything of interest in that part of the city, including the castle.

The hotel is in the neighborhood of Getsemani, which is very lively. This could be a good or bad thing. For me it worked, but I see how it could be a problem for those who like to go to bed early.

I stayed here for a week while traveling with friends (all in our late 20s). This hotel is fine for the young budget traveler. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were basic but adequate. The hotel is in a young neighbourhood where the locals and backpackers like to party. This is cool but be warned....it is VERY LOUD. The hotel has no glass on the windows, only shutters which do zero to block sound. On Saturday night the street party went on until 6:30am and even with ear plugs no one I was with got any sleep. Don't expect to be able to sleep in either. Everything on the street sounds like it's in your room. Oh and you're not allowed guests. Ever.

Getsemani used to be considered down at heel and not so safe. The neighbourhood is experiencing gentrification and is very popular with young travellers, locals and salsa club goers. Although I am not in those categories, it was a pleasant place to stay. Guests are offered limited use of the kitchen for coffee and loan of plates and cutlery. The rooms have high ceilings, thick walls and comfortable mattress.

Lovely feel to the hotel run by Patricia. Rooftop terrace with views over the old city & part of the harbour. A colony of pelicans,mixed herons & cormorants opposite with vultures & frigate birds overhead- heaven for a birdwatcher. Really handy for the walled city, bars & breakfast spots. A secure feel with someone always at the entrance which was handy for our kids (30 somethings) returning in the wee small hours. Air conditioning was on tap but just a sheet with the window open was surreal in January. We were unfortunate to have a bag stolen in a coffee shop - passport, credit cards, money etc. Patricia was superb, helping us with police reports, reporting stolen cards & passport etc. She made a very stressful time much easier- muchos gracias Patricia.

Spent a couple of days there, the owner will walk the extra mile for the guests. She is really wonderful. One night two friends had to stay for a couple of hours (3am to 7am). Was charged extra for each. It seems like a common practice although I had two full size beds. It can get loud on weekends due to a bar really close by. During my stay I barely saw anyone around although the hotel was full. Don't expect to socialize very much at the hotel. The rooftop terrace is nice, but wont get much use given that guests are there only to sleep. Internet is fast, some sites seemed to be locked.

"A small and confortable hotel with very friendly staff and excellent location for $48. What is not to like?"
05/08/15 LuisMSalces Chicago
The location was excellent. We walk every day two or three times from the hotel to the Old City. The price ($48 was very good!). The staff is very friendly including the owner. The hotel is also located 1 block from la plaza de la Trinidad which at night is full of young tourist but during the day is full of locals so you can experience both worlds. The owner lived in the U.S. so she speaks English but I am not sure about the other 2 staff members. The room was large enough for our needs and it was clean. The bathroom was also confortable and since the weather was so hot, we did not missed the hot water.

"Great value and great location"
04/08/15 flo-josh northants
Stayed here over Easter weekend with husband, daughter and her boyfriend. The location, as promised, is excellent, walkable from the main walled city but in a really interesting part of the city itself. Close by great places for breakfast etc. Simple but clean accommodation, all that is required if you're making the most of Cartagena. The bonus is a fridge in every room and cooking facilities available downstairs so possible to save a bit of money. Can be noisy - first night the adjoining bar played loud, and I mean LOUD, music all through the night till 6am, but they seemed to have worn themselves out and the next two nights were quieter. Celing fans and air-con helped drown out the noise. Security is very good - 24hr attendance on the locked gate. Bonus was that we arrived at 7.30 am having taken a very early flight from Medellin and one of the rooms was available immediately - more than we had expected, and very welcome. If you're on a budget, would definitely recommend.

"Convenient hotel"
04/07/15 davisGVA Geneva, Switzerland
The hotel is in a very nice neighborhood, you can walk to the walled city and the main fort. Rooms are simple but clean. I really liked the atmosphere in the area, the main square close to hotel gets very lively at night.

"Modest accomodation in great location with excellent owner"
03/29/15 Flavia d
El Pedregal is a great, clean, well-located place to stay for adventurers who plan on spending a lot of time out and about. A clean room with air conditioning and a nice atrium, but aside from taking an afternoon siesta, not exactly a hangout. It's in Getsemani on a quieter corner than the rest of the neighborhood. The best part of El Pedregal is the owner, Patricia, who is great at arranging trips and more. She hooked us up with her cousin, Diego, a master diver, to take us on an amazing scuba dive for a discount to the going rates advertised on websites. She sent us to the smaller, more private of the Islas de Rosario and arranged it all. She also hooked us up with a nice, clean bus to Parque Tayrona. Definitely recommend! Could use a little ambiance in the atrium but that's really all that's missing.

"Good location,"
03/25/15 Shantal C New York City, New York
One of the more affordable hostels in Cartagena, this hostel is located in Getsemani, which is less touristy and (in my opinion) more interesting than the Walled city area. Rooms were kept clean and we had an AC in the room which was great. Patricia was a great host and available whenever we have any questions. The hostel is walking distance to the walled city and the Felipe castle. It is a minute away from a plaza which has a great nightlife.

"Nice budget hotel in convenient location"
03/19/15 Mariyamak New York City, New York
Hotel is very well located in Getsemani steps away from nice little restaurants and the nightly party at Plaza de la Trinidad. It's also only about a 10 minute walk to the Old City. It's a budget option but has all the necessities (+cable and mini-fridge). My room had both a fan and an AC, so the excessive heat was never an issue. Patricia is the owner and is very nice and eager to help.

"Great spot in a lovely edgy and safe location"
03/10/15 Kiltiejourno London, United Kingdom
Value for money in Cartegena might seem like an oxymoron, but this place is. The owner Patricia was great and was incredibly helpful with information. The area was very safe and has a fantastic atmosphere. We were really glad we stayed in the Getsemani area, the nearby coffee shops and restuarants were really class acts. Our room was clean and the air con worked very well. (You need air con in Cartegena). Unless you have loads of money and can afford to stay in the sympathetically restored colonial houses in the old town, stick to Gethsemani and this place as all you'll be doing is paying more for maybe less quality 10 mins walk away.

"Well located hotel with very helpful landlady"
02/16/15 bikechick9 Ontario, Canada
Located in the Getsemani district and close to the Media Luna, which is full of life, bars and restaurants which are significantly less expensive than those in the walled city, Hotel El Pedregal is easily found by most cab drivers and shuttle operators. Excellent security, especially important since I was traveling alone, the landlady is very helpful in arranging shuttles, trips, etc. There is a small corner store across the street and a drugstore just a few doors down. The only drawback to my stay was one evening's street birthday party, complete with DJ, lights, rental tables and chairs that literally raged on until 5:30am right outside my window. Certainly not the fault of the hotel (and she warned me about it in the afternoon), but it did make for one Night's very uncomfortable sleep. The only amenity missing is a swimming pool -- Cartagena is HOT and it would have been nice to have a dip. The rooftop bar was not open, no explanation why.

"A bit of HOME away from HOME"
12/11/14 rossidebossi London
I spent a month at the Hotel El Pedregal and I truly felt like home. Hotel El Pedregal is a very charming little hotel in a fantastic location right in the heart of vibrant Getsemani, my favourite neighbourhood! Its great value for money and the staff is friendly and helpful. The owner, Patricia is great and really knows how to run her business efficiently and professionally. She is also very friendly and accommodating. I went off on several trips out of town while I stayed at the hotel and Patricia always made sure I had my room back whenever I returned "home". The hotel was always spotless clean and looked after, the laundry service was great and fast and the wifi connection was reliable. The rooms are lovely and spacious and there is a wonderful roof top terrace with amazing views of the city. I highly recommend this hotel!

"Nice/clean budget hotel in excellent location!"
11/13/14 jmediavi New York City, New York
I stayed for 6 nights at El Pedregal in November 2014, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in a budget hotel/hostel close to the historic center. It is located about a 10-minute walk from the entrance to the historic old town (El Centro), and the surrounding neighborhood of Getsemani is itself quite lively and entertaining, especially at night. The Plaza de la Trinidad, a block from the hotel, comes alive at night with locals along with a handful of tourists, and also a block away is the tourist hotbed found along Calle de La Media Luna. The hotel rooms are simple but adequate and cleanly maintained, and the decor in the hotel lobby and hallways is very pleasant and eye-catching. They also have a rooftop where you can hang out and drink with decent views of the city. Security is excellent as nobody can get in or out without being let in by the person on duty (24 hours). And the owner/hostess Patricia is very caring and helpful, and can help arrange day trips and/or give useful information. Booking online through sites like Booking.com can get you an excellent rate -- I paid $73 for two nights (total/combined). The wi-fi was excellent as well. PLEASE NOTE: the location given for the hotel by Google Maps is off by about 2 blocks. It is actually located on the corner of what Google Maps calls "Calle 29" and "Carrera 10C", near the marker labeled "Calle del Espiritu Santo" (the actual name of the street.....none of the streets in this neighborhood are actually called what Google Maps says they are, so nobody will be able to direct you there. Below is a link to a street view of the actual location. Remember it is located one block east of the main plaza (Plaza de la Trinidad), on the southeast corner: https://www.google.com/maps/@10.42034,-75.54442,3a,75y,151.45h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sU6Scpg6TCXiMEW3iXQ7ypg!2e0
