Tequendama Inn Cartagena de Indias by Sercotel, Cartagena
To expensive for what you get
The hotel is old, if you read the name of the Hotel "Tequendama Inn" you assume you will get the same quality hotel than the Tequedama in Bogota but not in these case. Room is pretty small and noise (Windows are regular and noise from the street comes to your room), towels are, the AA doesn't works properly. In resume the quality of the hotel if far away from what you paid. In my personal oppinion these hotel should be around the US$30 or 40 and just 2 starts. Breakfast just have eggs, some fruit and coffee or juice nothing more. These hotel for me is for a quick night and that's all.

Very helpful staff.. At least a few of them spoke enough english that with my limited spanish we were able to communicate. The entire staff was very friendly. Rooms were clean but need to be upgraded. Mine had a broken shower door. Everything was within a two block walk and I never felt unsafe in that neighborhood.

Spend $30 more and get a better hotel
I came to this hotel after a very unfortunate experience from another hotel in the city just to find out that this is not the best choice either. I stayed there for 4 days and I NEVER had hot water in the shower! Yes I had to carefully consider my shower time due to the cold water. I tried to speak to the reception a couple of times, and I was told thei'r raising the water heat temperature but that never happened to me. At the first day I ordered dinner and a bottle of wine to my room and the food came out completely cold not even warm! They gave me a different kind of wine and tried to charge me more for that. The food was not good, it was dry and cold and definitely not worth the price I paid. The room it self has a stinky smell every time you come in to the room. The shower sink had a strong sewage smell coming out of it that made me wanna throw out every time I washed my face. The stuff was very nice people overall but they don't speak English which probably contributed to the lack of communication. I paid about $70 usd and I don't think it's worth it, I would expect a little more.
