If you want to stay in Bocagrande, reasonable location. Hotel is new and so rooms and general facilities are contemporary and not yet care-worn. But it is "express" - no room service, carry your own luggage and as for prepared to fight for the meagre offerings.

Room was clean. Cribs provided for our baby and toddler. Breakfast was good and varied, but always crowded. Check in was painfully slow, but we got there in the end. The Old Town is a cheap cab ride away. We used the hotel's airport transfer on arrival and it was prompt - vehicle was an airconditioned SUV. The rooftop pool and gym was adequate. There is also a small, shallow wading pool for kids. I really had no complaints about this hotel, but after a few days we moved to a different place in ... Read more

We had a bad experience since beginning (at check-in) up to the moment we leave. There was undue charge (soon charged back), the bed had one leg broken (making it curve) and the hotel went on fire (literally; see picture). Air-conditioning system would turn off in middle of sleep and would not turn on again, for its control panel became unresponsive. Windows cannot be open, for they are soldered. About the fire, the building had to be evacuated and guests waited about 3h to be allowed to enter b... Read more

Great service, beautiful modern building in the best location of Cartagena, close to restaurants, 10 min drive to the Walled Old city. Excellent service,Clean and modern furnished bedrooms. beautiful panoramic view from the roof top Swimming pool. Breakfast included, quality of food could be better,breakfast eggs were lack of flavor or seasoning but for an express hotel it was ok, variety of fruits and breads.,

This hotel was recently opened and looks very pleasant. It is very well located and close to the beach and to restaurants, also if you want to walk for half an hour you can reach the old city. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooftop pool is small but you we had a pleasant time there.

I regret that it's taken me this long to leave this review, but better late than never. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cartagena in December, 2015 with my mom and we were both quite pleased with the experience. The hotel is well located in the center of town, with easy walks to local attractions. It is in walking distance of many restaurants and, for those traveling with young children, is right across from a McDonalds and Burger King. The staff were all lovely, from the doormen who...

We drove in from Riohacha and missed our flight so we booked a room on hotwire for 1 night and we are glad we got this hotel. The room was super clean and modern, AC was blasting cold air as we walked in so it was already cool, safe location with tons of places to eat just walking distance from the lobby, the beds are super comfy and the breakfast with a 190-degree view of Cartagena was amazing. Lots of food selection as well. Fresh everything. Friendly staff and free parking and wifi. Just 10mi... Read more

My wife and I went to Cartagena Colombia for a wedding. We stayed at the Holiday Express for a week. This hotel is only a year or two old. Our room was a typical hotel room. The bed was very comfortable. The tv had a lot of channels and you could put most programs over into English. The breakfast was good. The air conditioning was very good. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. Convenience store across the street. Pool and workout room on the 14th floor. Taxis very easy to get to take yo... Read more

I stayed for one night on a business trip. The location is near to some fast food restaurants. This is important because the hotel does not have room service or a restaurant of its own. The room was nice and clean. The room size was ok. The only service I can review is the one I received at the front desk and it was very good.

I went to Cartagena and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for four days. The experience was great. It´s a new hotel but it´s equipped with anything you may want. The staff was marvellous: from José at the front desk to the guards at the doors, they worry about what you may need in order to make your stay pleasant. Breakfast offers a wide variety of food and you can enjoy yourself in the pool after a long sunny Carthaginian day. They offer you guidance about what to do and the hotspots in cart... Read more

Stayed here for 4 nights. Great rooms and location. One block over from beach. Great rooftop pool. Breakfast was not the best for me. Would have like different variety. Things like waffles would be great and more meat choices. Overall great place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

This is a relatively new hotel in the middle of the tourist district of Cartagena. About ten minute, $8-10 cab ride to the hotel. It sits a block away from the beach, on the main avenue thru the tourist area. There is a security guard at the door, and all the front staff I dealt with for the week spoke English well. The check-in was quick and easy. There is a computer bank connected to the Internet and printer in the lobby. The rooms are fresh, clean and comfortable. When making reservations or ... Read more

I stayed at this hotel 3 days for business. Actually not the best location for business, as Bocagrande is more a touristic area and the traffic can be quite horrible. However, its fairly close located to the old city, where majority of good restaurants and bars are located, why I found it convenient for my stay. The hotel itself offers clean and fairly modern and very clean rooms which are quite big. Social areas are fine, but I found the breakfast a bit boring. Not a lot to chose from, but the ... Read more

This is good Hotel to stay when here for business and you have possibility to have walk along the beach or even take a swim. The rooms are big, clean and quite modern and friendly staff. The breakfast is ok but selection is not so big. They have gym and small swimming pool on the roof.

quiet, clean and large rooms. My had a view of the lagoon which was quite spectacular! Typical HIExpress decor, which I like. Breakfast is also standard, but you can have it in the terrace or inside the restaurant. I needed some packing boxes and the front desk staff produced them within minutes. I highly recommend this hotel!

I liked the location, 1/2 block to the beach, McDonalds and Burger King across the street, lots of restaurants nearby. Room was simple, but good air conditioning, everything worked... lots of English t.v. channels... even great views from most of the rooms, try for above the 7th floor. The buffet breakfast was good. Friendly staff here... only problem was there was always one elevator not working, and it was very slow to get elevators all the time. I trust that was an unusual problem, and do... Read more
