    Pensión Balcones Azules

    On a quiet central street overlooking the ruins of the forum, this modern option offers plenty of quality for the price. The superior rooms have bigger bathrooms, but there are some spacious 'economy' ones, too. It's all very comfortable, and the dedicated staff keep this, which is effectively a small hotel, absolutely spotless. Closes for a month around February.

    NH Cartagena

    The location of this business hotel can't be bettered, steps from the waterfront and the Roman theatre and just behind the town hall. Rooms are spacious, and superior chambers come with balcony or a sizeable terrace. As usual with this chain, free wi-fi is frustratingly slow and to speed it up costs a fortune. The overpriced breakfast is best avoided.

    Carlos III

    Modernisation has been undertaken in a fan of bright colours here, with subtlety gone out the window in a shower of reds, blues, greens and blacks. The beds could be comfier, but it's a good deal in a reasonably central location, and the rooms have plenty of space and reliable wi-fi. Book with them online for added extras.

    Hotel Los Habaneros

    Located across from the Muralla Púnica and near the bus station, this hotel is something of a bargain, with decent-sized rooms decorated in cream and burgundy and good facilities, if a slightly downbeat atmosphere. The better rooms are more modern, with balconies (€84).
