Hotels in Cartagena ColombiaHi !
I'm looking at hotels in Cartagena for January 1st-6th or 2nd-6th and am struggling to find a reasonably priced ones as most of them appear to be sold out for those dates leaving only the really expensive ones and less than a handful of affordable ones.
I also read on one of the booking sites that the prices do not include a 10% VAT, but Expedia did not say that whilst listing the same price as the other booking site. Can anyone tell me whether they were charged an additional VAT on checking out of their hotel or whether the price they paid was just the price listed at the time of booking?
Does anyone have experience of any of the following 4 hotels which seem to be still available and reasonably priced?
I'm trying to decide between them and would welcome any feedback on them from anyone who is familiar with them / has stayed there:
1. Hotel San Martin in Bocagrande, Avenida San Martin - £88/night
2. Hotel Playa in Bocagrande, Avenida San Martin - £69/night
3. Hotel Stil Cartagena in Centro, Calle 34 - £43/night
4. Hostal San Diego in Centro, Calle de las Bovedas - £53/night
this one was listed somewhere as a B&B/Inn rather than a hotel, though I can't see much difference.
I am also currently looking for reviews on TripAdvisor, though surprisingly the Hostal San Diego doesn't appear to be listed there.

Important its to have a hotel for the first 2 nights, relax your flight and time difference. Than you can walk on Bocagrande and you find many *casahotel*for 50000 Pesos.
We stay at "Pinar del Mar" chez Betty. Lovely person, she have contacts to other Casahoteles.
Enjoy COLOMBIA, dont'h forget, "the only risk is waiting to stay"
