The staff was very helpful and caring, but the room we had was horrendous. No window, no way to turn the air conditioning off and just in front of the reception, with lots of noise and lack of privacy. Very kindly, the staff promised to change our room the next day but the alternatives did not seem much better. We moved to another (much more charming) hotel, but the rate was the double. So you have to take your own decision. The location is fine.

rooms are tiny and windowless (at least mine was)! no room to move around the bed or even place our suitcase. some natural light comes from the bathroom. I'm still under the impression they placed a double bed in a single bed room last minute. staff was nice and room/bath were clean enough, but for the price (100$/ngt) i expected some more... not a lot more as I understand Cartagena is an expensive city in terms of lodging, so I'm rating in terms of the price we paid. During our trip we stayed in 5 different budget places/hostels in Colombia and this was the poorest in terms of room quality. on the upside, location is good and there is free internet and hot water.

Cartagena is a pretty expensive city, but Santa Cruz was a decent deal. They have a porch overlooking a main road which is very nice to sit out on. The rooms are clean and simple. It can be noisy though, and our room did not have a window which can be off putting. The staff was friendly and the location was excellent.
