Downtown Location Parking nearby (€11/day) Big room Huge bathroom Clean Friendly staff (in the afternoon only)
Most of the day the reception was staffed with a rather grumpy elderly man who would only mutter something reluctantly when directly addressed (I speak Spanish, so language was not an issue) - not someone who makes you feel welcome at all! Later in the afternoons a very friendly and helpful young woman took over - what a difference that made! I couldn’t quite cope with the foam mattress and the foam pillows, but that is of course highly individual!
Being awaken at 3am when one other guests rang the main front doorbell!!
Very close to bars and restaurants and the port
No facilities for a morning coffee or tea in the room, parking is far away if dont know where to park for free, no hotel parking
No Breakfast available and the plastic cups offered with the room broke in your hand. Luggage could be stored under the bed as there was no where else. The shower was so small, you have to open the door to get anything dropped on the floor. It was clean and in a good location. No Fridge and no ice machine which would have made it bearable.
Location was great. Fairly clean.
There was some struggle with language, depending who was in the shift. Also there was little flexibility around my friend visiting which was a shame. We couldn’t spend time in the hotel without him showing his passport and me paying extra just for him to visit the apartment. Also the ‘historic’ view of the Roman Theatre was a building site. It was fine if you’re looking for somewhere central and does what it says.
With a stay at Pensión Balcones Azules in Cartagena (Diputación de Cartagena Casco), you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Augusteum and Santa Maria de Gracia Church. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and an elevator (lift). Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
