We loved absolutely everything about GHL. From the minute we arrived, everyone made us feel right at home-- the entire staff is incredible. The room was spotless, comfortable and even nicer than what we had expected. The outdoor areas and roof top pool/bar are perfect. Can't say enough great things about our experience. Definitely the highlight of our honeymoon!
We're only sad we couldn't stay longer!
Beautiful room, pool/bar area was very nice with a lovely view of the bay. Bed was extremely comfortable and the air conditioning in the room was very effective which was a welcome relief from the heat outside. Hotel was a comfortable 10 minute walk from the old town in a quiet, safe neighbourhood.
Restaurant was lovely for the buffet breakfast but service was very poor at dinner. We went into an otherwise completely empty restaurant with a party of 8 and some people took so long to get their food that others had been finished eating for over 20 minutes. Food was only ok, much better options in restaurants a short walk from the hotel. Likewise service at the bar was less than speedy, often the barman would dissappear for half an hour at a time while the bar was busy leaving no staff members to help us at all. Minor complaints, beautiful hotel.
Beautiful building, helpful staff in general. Although on a busy road they have double windows which block out sound. Excellent location, super clean. Great atmospheric colonial building. Generous size rooms. Enjoyed the stay.
Staff for terrace bar not usually there, inattentive and play music for themselves
I complained about our telephone not working for 3 days and nothing was done. It is a safety issue!
Not enough lighting to read in bed . Should be some overhead lighting
The hotel itself is beautiful to look at. The location isn't bad, the views from the roof are great.
The hotel itself is falling apart, not taken care of properly. The man who mainly mans the front desk is RUDE. We had SEVERAL issues in BOTH rooms we were put in, and were polite with every time we spoke up about it. It got to the point where we didn't want to speak up because we felt bad. But the toilets stopped working, the AC wasn't working in one of our rooms, the bathroom sink spewed water directly onto the floor EVERY time we used it. The mirror was hanging on a thread, and did I mention the front desk staff was RUDE? I am a native Spanish speaker, so it wasn't a matter of understanding. It's a shame the hotel is so nice looking but poorly cared after and the staff is just rude and unaccommodating.
A stay at GHL Hotel Armería Real places you in the heart of Cartagena, within a 15-minute walk of Puerta del Reloj and Cartagena de Indias Convention Center. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. For a surcharge, guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle (available 24 hours) and a cruise ship terminal shuttle.
