        I almost didn't book based on the hotel's own website, but once there was more than impressed by what the hotel delivered. Great location, fantastic sized rooms, always clean. The staff were extremely and helpful, and the whole design of the hotel beautiful. My room was a little dark and the TV was quite small, but I wasn't in Cartagena to watch TV! I loved the rooftop pool and the swing in one of the garden courtyards.

        The restaurant was not always open for dinner.

        Bantu is well located within the old city of Cartagena. Everything is within walking distance: shops, restaurants and bars are convenient and close by.

        The hotel is very pretty but could use some updating. It could use new paint and new light fixtures, for example.

        The most comfortable beds ever . Location and ambiance . We had quiet nights ,

        Really poor shower - only one bedside cabinet . Too dark a room and little wardrobe space . Our privacy was good on the first floor but appeared an amazing lack of privacy for downstairs rooms !!

        Nice, friendly and helpful hotel staff. Clean rooms. Perfect authentic hotel with the nice inside yards.

        During the nighttime very noisy on the streets around the hotel.

        Charming boutique hotel boasting open air lobbies, wood finishes, and tropical touches. The rooftop pool was our favorite feature. Also, great breakfast.

        Atrocious service for the following reasons: 1) We scheduled a wake-up call, but no one called. 2) The concierge offered to help make us dinner reservations. We provided a list of eight restaurants hoping to try over four nights, anytime between 6 and 10p. We were told that NONE of the restaurants had availability on any night. Skeptical, we walked to the restaurants ourselves. Each had open tables on every night. In other words, the concierge lied to us, flat out. 3) Our room was on the round floor with shades to provide privacy. When one of the shades broke, we notified the front desk, which told us someone would be right there. After 2hrs and no help, we had to notify maintenance ourselves.

        O don't recommend Bantú hotel. The photos are very diferents vs the reality, additionaly is very expensive and the service is poor. You can find a better hotel with better location for less money.

        Scheduled a company party with a loud live band that played until 3 am one night.

      • Couple

        Hotel with a very authentic and cozy flair. Excellent and helpful staff. A charming place.

        Didn't try the restaurant so no further comments here. No real downsides, although the pool is nothing more than a oversized tub... Don't expect to swim!

      • Couple
        5.0

        The room was extremelly humid to the point of being unpleasant. The management system had some annoying shortcomings. For instance, everytime the room was cleaned the electronic card key would be deactivacted and we had to constantly refer to the reception.

        Hotel staff is noisy from 9 a.m. so not a great thing especially when your room is located next to the stairs...
