I booked it before leaving Cartagena and taking the bus to Santa Marta, this was through Hotels.com. As usual when travelling somewhere for the first time I am clueless as to location. So hit and miss, near the centre...tick, reviews OK....tick, running out of time.....tick, so just book the damn thing !!! Lucky choice with the old Granada. It sits...

Stayed 3 nights after booking, a local friend wasn't impressed with the area , said it bordered on the dangerous. Ok there were many prostitutues hanging around the end of the street, but I survived. Breakfast wasn't great, charged 85000 per night , rooms adequate . I asked to use MarSol to get me to Cartagena and they recommended another...

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor for a reasonable price and booked it early in the morning online before making the drive to Santa Marta from Cartagena. I was looking for something comfortable with a good location as a base while I went to Tayrona. I passed on staying in Taganga given recent TripAdvisor warnings about safety. Plus, Santa...

We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was extremely nice and friendly. You can see that the hotel is not new, but they are really tryin to maintain the place as well as possible. And we could store our luggage there during our trips to Tayrona and Ciudad perdida.

The room was small but clean and comfy enough. The room had a safe, a small fridge, and a/c. The courtyard with all the seating and hammocks offers a relaxing environment. I would stay here again. The staff was also very friendly. A private room with the amenities stated cost $110000 pesos which ends up being about $46usd. It worked...

I really enjoyed staying at Hotel Nueva Granada with my family. It almost feels like being at home. Very friendly staff, good service, located in the historical Santa Marta, very clean, quiet and cozy. I always recommend it to all my friends and every time I go to Santa Marta I stay at this hotel.

Stayed one night in this hotel. Location is good, close to the seafront and many restaurants. Our room was huge and clean, nothing fancy though. The garden area is nice to chill and meet other travelers. Staff at reception was very professional and friendly.

this is the kind of hotel that makes you forget how the time passes. It is friendly, clean, well kept, and the staff go above and beyond to help. It is not the Hilton but they are entitled to the same number of stars because they truly deliver in terms of service, attention, hospitality and support It feels like a...

The review in an old edition of Lonely Planet didn't fill me with hope but I was well satisfied after an overnight trip from San Gil. My room was quite small and because of the heat, the A/C had to work overtime but otherwise the hotel was comfortable and the staff were very helpful. There was plenty of seating in...

Very nicely run hotel with nice courtyard and friendly staff. As well as breakfast and wifi (lobby), they offer the unusual benefit of medical advice on call. My girlfriend got sick with an infection while we were there, and the hotel brought in a doctor (and assistant) who diagnosed the problem and told us what to buy at the pharmacy...
