Bastión Luxury Hotel, Cartagena
Not worth it
We were wanting to love this hotel, though we left feeling disappointed. The design and architecture of this property is stunning, though the cleanliness and service left much to be desired. First, as an Expedia VIP we are supposed to be offered upgrade options, which did not happen. Our room on the bottom floor felt like a basement dungeon with no natural light. It smelled of septic and an unpleasant musk. The cleaning staff took away our extra towels that we had ordered and also removed our turndown chocolate, which we were saving for the next day! Who does that?! They likely passed it on to the next guest. The breakfast was bland and unremarkable compared to other hotels we stayed in during our Colombia trip. This hotel was not worth the price to us and cannot highly recommend it.

Great hotel, improve service
The hotel was very nice and in a GREAT location, but a couple of service issues were unexpected for a “luxury” hotel. The hotel advertises hotel transfers and I emailed concierge 2 times before my trip to arrange a pickup with no response. Finally the day I was arriving I called and was able to get someone on the phone and we arranged the transfer. No explanation as to why the emails went unanswered for days. Also there was a bottle of water in the room with a tag that stated the bottle was complimentary and you could purchase additional bottles if needed. We took the bottle out sightseeing and recycled it when empty. Upon checkout we were told that the water in the bottle was complimentary but that the bottle was supposed to be returned and we were charged appropriately $20USD for not returning. Lovely hotel, breakfast is ok. Can easily walk to lots of the main attractions and is quick walk to best restaurants in the old city.

Hands Down - Best place to book in Cartagena
Absolutely best hotel we have stayed in in Cartagena! After booking through I contact the hotel about additional packages and was able to get the romantic package. It was perfect. Couldn't have imagined it any better. We had a very small window of time to work with and the hotel accommodated the requests and made a great weekend incredible.
