Hotel San Felipe Plaza, Cartagena
Great place to stay.
I really enjoyed my stay here. Located within easy walking distance to the walled town and historic sites. They happily accommodated me even though i checked in a little early. Room is simple but spacious with 'black out' curtains and air con. had small writing desk and chair with coffee table. No refrigerator if that is important to you. Hotel was very quiet and i felt safe the whole time I was there. Housekeeping thorough and friendly. WiFi strong in room. Very nice free breakfast buffet. In the evening their is security guard in lobby. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and i will stay here again on any of my subsequent visits to Cartagena.

Simple hotel with outstanding location
It was a good stay. The hotel is old and very basic but safe. Bring your own soap, shampoo and conditioner. Also, no coffee or tea in the room. No ice either. Cold water available in the hallway. No warm water in the bathroom. AC in the room worked great! This hotel only has cold water but we managed with 2 kids. It was so hot outside that we each took 2 showers per day. Breakfast was okay (eggs, bread, fruit). Location was magnificent. 5 min walk to the Walled City. Safe Location. We used their recommend service for a trip to Playa Blanca in Baru. 45 min trip there. 4.5 hours on the beach (which is noisy and smelly from gasoline) and a little over 3 HOURS ride back. Ride back was horrible. $55 for 4 hrs on the beach was NOT worth it. We spend more time in the car. Do your own homework. Most companies will pick you up at your hotel. Mist visit are restaurant La Mulata and Waffery. Good luck.

Bedtime shower challenge! :)
The only downside was that the bathroom window wouldn't close, and the breeze + the cold water made my bedtime shower a bit challenging :)

The worst place to stay
I had a friend come over with her 10 year old daughter to see me. It was night and the night desk manager was sleeping on the sofa in the lobby. So I ask them to go up in my room and I had to pay for and extra person just because I had a woman in the room. These people are idiots. What would I do with a lady and her 10 year old daughter in the same room. I ask them to check the sheets if they wanted to. But of course the didn't. Because they just wanted to rob me for some more money. The most horrible place to stay at. Don't recommend this place to anyone.
