6/10 Good

I loved the location of this property and the price. The staff was extremely friendly but didn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish so communication was very difficult. The breakfast was very limited and not kept stocked for the guest who didn’t show up at 6:30am.

La Gran via hotel
I had an amazing stay at Hotel La Gran Via. The housekeeping and maids were amazing. Everyday my place was spotless. Also it is one of the few hotels I have been in here that actually has HOT WATER! That was amazing! The front desk staff and doormen were also great and smiled everytime I walked past. If I ordered food and didn’t make it down in time, the door man would bring it up to my room, take the money down, pay the guy and bring the change back up.I had an amazing view. Some things I did not like or things I would change (nothing too serious) are that I had a stove top in my room but no pots or pans. My pillows were too hard,if I had a guest stay the night we would just throw them on the other bed and sleep with no pillows instead. A place this nice should definitely have Netflix, surprisingly they didn’t, I have stayed in about 7 different hotels here in Cartagena and they have all had Netflix (no big deal but would be a great addition). This would have been nice to have during the curfew hours. Locked inside from Noon to 5 a.m. on the weekends. Another thing I did not like was the bathroom door. There is about a good 8 inch gap at the bottom and top. Reminded me more of a public bathroom stall, and if someone had to poop there is no way of closing the door fully to block the smell from getting out. The WiFi in my room was extremely slow on all my devices (might be better on the lower floors). Breakfast was just ok. overall had a nice stay I give it an 8/10
