Barranquilla Hotels & Apartments
These are the hotels I've stayed
at while in Barranquilla. If you want to make a
reservation for Carnaval then I highly recommend booking
a hotel at least 6 months in advance. The Dann Carlton
is the nicest and fills up the quickest.
Hotel Dann Carlton
The Dann Carlton is the nicest hotel
in Barranquilla and has a revolving restaurant at the top,
which gives a great view of the city. It's also right across
the street from the Buena Vista mall. The pool is really
nice too, and the service is excellent.
The Hotel Windsor is another
nice hotel. I prefer to stay here when the Dann Carlton
is completely full.
Hotel Barranquilla Plaza
The Hotel Barranquilla Plaza
is pretty decent. It also has a nice pool. Even if you don't
stay here, you can still hang out by the pool.
Hotel El Prado
The Hotel El Prado is an
older hotel, but it's the most famous hotel in Barranquilla.
This hotel has a lot of history, and the decor is really
nice. The rooms are a little old fashioned, but the pool
is really nice. Even if you don't stay here, you can still
pay around $5 or $10 to go hang out by the pool all day,
eat food, etc.
There are plenty of options
to choose from. I recommend going online and doing a Google
search for the term "alquiler apartamentos barranquilla"
and you should be able to find something. By the way, if
you don't speak Spanish then I recommend asking a friend
or someone you know to help out with the reservation. Major
hotels generally have someone on staff who speaks English,
so it's usually not a problem.
I've also stayed at
Apartamentos Alvaro Jesus, which
are somewhat like
apartments with hotel amenities. There are several room
options to choose from. Each room has a small kitchen with
a refrigerator, stove, etc. Each room also has a small living
room that's separate from the bedroom.
