Property Description

This is a house that has belonged to the Hernandez family for over 70 years. It was used for 60 years, as a lithography workshop, only on its first floor. However, the second floor of the house was not part of the business, and since it did not generate income, it was never considered important so it remained neglected, but at the same time unaltered in its original conditions. The second floor of the house was suitable as accommodation and the third floor and the upper terraces were recovered, giving rise to the Casa de la Cruz Hostal.

With the aim of sharing the experience of staying in the historic center of the city of Cartagena (World Heritage), we have prepared the staff, who will be at your service and take care of the details in order to make your stay with us to be memorable. The location of Casa de la Cruz Hostal is extraordinary, it has proximity to all the services that you may require during your trip, and it is also in the middle of the cultural and touristic center of the ancient city, allowing walking access to bars, restaurants, museums and sites of historical interest.

Casa de la Cruz Hostal has 10 rooms and capacity for 33 people. The concept of adequacy was defined as creating spaces to share among guests and generating complete and comfortable private areas, so each room has its internal bathroom and air conditioning. The rules of the house allow us to live and spend time with others under a culture of openness and respect.

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa de la Cruz. The staff were very attentive and helpful especially since we flew in very late that evening. It has everything we needed after a long flight and the amenities were nice. They have filtered water available and the access/check-in process was very easy. Nelson was truly incredible and very communicative. We couldn’t enjoy the other amenities because the electricity had gone out that morning due to a huge rainstorm, but the kitchen seems well stocked and the pati

We had a very positive stay here, the staff were very helpful with arranging tours and helping us with our stay in Cartagena, and very kindly let us change our reservation. The room was clean with air con. There is not much of an atmosphere, it is more like a hotel but does have some basic cooking facilities. It’s in a great location within the old city as everywhere is walkable. The front door doesn’t lock automatically and you have to put in the code to lock it - they didn’t tell us this and sometimes we

I was really happy with this spot. It's not a social hostel but I was happy with that. Also everyone I did meet there was super nice. The staff were really sweet. My room was nice and I had an en suite. The air conditioning was ice cold. The one thing I will say is that they could have changed the light bulbs from florescent to tungsten because everything in the room was white so overall it was a bit stark. Overall, a great budget option in central Cartagena.
