Hotel Almirante is an excellent family oriented hotel, Clean, safe, the staff is professional and knowledgeable. They always take an extra step to accommodate the guest needs. |Excellent location, close to everything, beach, shopping malls, Old City (15 min in car ) |They have very good breakfast buffet, with an ample selection of food, local and American style breakfast. |Jaime Castaneda Hair Salon it’s excellent!! As the Tours Company in the Lobby ( very good service to Del Rosario Islands) ||We expended a very good family time it’s this hotel. |We have a group of 12 and everyone was pleased (18-86 years old )

This is my opinion of the Almirante Cartagena hotel, my stay from September 19 to September 22, price I paid around 150 dollars a night, junior suite 13th floor with ocean view, I give it a 10 for cleanliness, everything very clean in The room was very spacious with a beautiful view of the sea, but the hallways had a strong musty smell. The hotel is located in a very central location, which is why I give it a 10. As for the employees, who are not all of them, the treatment was a little hostile and with an attitude, like the one who served me at the pool who handed out the towels. at breakfast when I was going to go to the room, the coffee was served to me when it was the first thing that was ordered because of my rating in terms of service, which should be everything 4. in conclusion, I will not return to the hotel almirante, I am very Disillusioned with the hotel already.
