Keep track of the Mini Bar
This place charged me for a container of Pringles that I never opened. They charged me 10.000 pesos at checkout that I never agreed to. They never gave me the extra towels that I requested. The balcony door woul never open. I'd complain more but I am too busy stuffing my face with leftover Chinese food. I should have finished it last night but I just couldn't so here I am. The breakfast on the roof was fantastic. The shower worked great. The beds were mostly comfy. Oh, the club below the hotel is an illegal brothel. So don't go there. Even though the music from this brothel is the main complaint on reviews for this hotel. Weird. Oh well, #Colombia

Good Hotel, But Horribley Noisey
Everything about the hotel was OK except the horrible sound. it was VERY loud. Especially from 1AM - 5AM. Even on a Sunday night. If you are a light sleeper, stay away from this hotel because you will not get any sleep.

Balcones de Alhelí Hotel, Cartagena
Very Central location, ideal for sightseeing the the historic centre of Cartagena, the hotel is fairly basic and could do with updating, also the rooms facing the street are very noisy at night, you do get used to it or maybe i was just so tired after a few nights disturbed sleep. if your on a budget its a good choice.
