Ananda Hotel Boutique is a beautiful renovated property located in the cheart of Cartagena. All 23 suites are individuel designed and spacious. The lowest category is a Junior Suites, but I stayed in a Deluxe Suite with a lovely outdoor area. The design is Asian inspired and absolutely the best room I had in Cartagena. The bathroom had a lovely freestanding jacuzzi tub as the highlight. The bed was comfortable, the high speed internet complimentary and in terms of the rooms I couldn’t find a thing to complain about.
The service on the other hand wasn’t perfect. Most staff don’t speak any English which was a problem, but the ones that did was very friendly and service minded. The location is fantastic right in old town of Cartagena and the views from the top of the hotel is beautiful.
The food is good here, altough their restaurant isn’t among the best in the city. Based on the actual food is very good, but none of the restaurant staff spoke English which made it hard for me to evaluate the food. I highly recommend their fish as the menu card has a large selection of food and it might be hard to decide.
Overall I highly recommend the hotel as one of the best in Cartagena. They have the best rooms, a charming property with it’s own character. If you speak Spanish you will love it even more than I did.
My opinion: Great experience.
