Hotel Almirante Cartagena - Colombia, Cartagena
The Admiral Hotel Is A Great Commander for Vacatio
From top to bottom, staying at the Hotel Almirante Cartagena was a great experience. The restaurant service is slow, because that's just how it is in Cartagena we found out, and so you just learn to wait, regardless of where you are dining. The only blip on our vacation was the excessive and intrusive interference on the beach by local vendors. It is an understatement to say they will attack you like flies the minute you sit down. I have never had to say the phrase "no gracias" so much in my life...and still sometimes that doesn't suffice. Women will actually come and start to "massage" you, regardless of your attempts to be left completely alone. This has no bearing on the Hotel, except that, regrettably, they don't have their own private beach.

Old rooms
The location is perfect and a good breakfast. But the rooms are old and dated. It’s a 3.5 star hotel and certainly not the rated 5 stars

Nice Lobby - Bad room
The room is nothing like the photos. Floor was dirty, mattresses stored in the hallway and not close to being worth the price. The lobby and reception is beautiful. The room was worse then a motel 6
