This is a big modern business hotel with all the trappings. Massive rooms, huge beds, good if slightly noisy aircon, great service and a really generous and tasty breakfast, with good coffee. There is not much to eat in the surrounds without catching a taxi, but there are lots of stalls, and a walk around gives you a sense of the daily life of Barranquilla.

My family (2 Adults, 2 Children) stayed at this hotel on August 4, 2014.

The hotel was very clean, had a nice swimming pool, free parking, free Wi-Fi, and free breakfast.

The hotel definitely showed its age though.

We had made out reservation through Howard Johnson's website and the front desk couldn't find it. I had to forward my confirmation email to them and show them the rate I had confirmed.

I had to ask, but they took off the 16% IVA without argument (if you don't know, foreigners do not pay the 16% IVA at hotels. A common scam is for the hotel to charge it, but then refund it to themselves as they already have a copy of your passport. If an international chain hotel refuses to take it off, take down names and threaten to call corporate to complain).

The restaurant in the hotel was mediocre with slightly expensive prices for what you get. I recommend going out for dinner, but the free breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, juices, and typical food included.

Upon checkout, there were no unexpected charges. I have come to realize this is very important in a hotel and allows for speedy checkout.

I have decided to include this tidbit in all my Colombian reviews as it saved me much hassle once I learned about it. Download the app Tappsi to request a taxi. The app improves your taxi experience by emailing you the taxi drivers name and plate numbers along with your taxi ride details. I have never found a reason to complain about a taxi I requested through Tappsi.

This is my second visit to Howard Johnson, first time there was lots of construction going on, glad to see its all finished. Pool now open looks good, lobby looking very nice, food in restaurant still excellent.
Always ask for a free upgrade at time of check in, twice the size of regular room. All rooms have free WiFi and A/C, TVs haveEnglish speaking channels. Fridge and mini bar. Definitely stay here again.

Worse hotel I have ever been. Shower water so hot it burned my skin. Termites lines on the walls. Delivered without toilet paper. They give you only one key that is attached to the AC which means when you leave the room the AC is off. There is no AC in the hallways only in the room.

The room next to mine was being remodeled so they were banging all day and into the night, the locks on the door were broken. The hot water didn't work, water pressure was very poor. The sink and the facet where not attached to the counter and were falling off. The ac didn't work well at all. This was the worst stay i have ever had and i travel a lot. Just so poor

If you are shopping for a decent hotel with a spa sauna and a swimming pool and a huge size room at a budget price this is the place for you. The breakfeast buffet is very good with local cuisine offerings and fresh tropical fruit unique to the area. Colombian coffee and an AREPA (corn griddle cakes) can really fill you up for an active day about town. The best time to travel to Barranquilla is in February when the local CARNIVAL is in full swing. I was really impressed by the spacious room size for the price. Normally such a room would cost twice as much almost anywhere else. But this is Colombia and you can extend your vacation stay by finding a good bargain and have money left over to do other things like go shopping or eating out at fancy restaurants it go SALSA DANCING! The staff was most courteous and helpful and even the taxi drivers were very nice to me, even returning me back to the hotel to pick up my suit that I inadvertently left in the room closet when the bell hop checked my room and radioed the taxi after I left. I was never in any danger of being robbed and they went out if their way to insure my security of my person and personal belongings. But that is not to say that something bad can't happen to you! As in any big city there are dangers but if you are reasonably cautious and have a guide that you pay to take care of you while about town, you will be just fine. Usually you can ask the front desk clerk for a recommended guide or just ask a taxi driver to show you about all the local attractions in town. Speaking Spanish is a must though but there are hand held translator computers available that can prove usefull if you do not speak Spanish. Don't forget to pack sunblock as the tropical sun will give you a nice tan or sunburn if you are unprotected. Have fun and enjoy your stay and try some of the seafood dinner plates at the hotel, fish with a nice glass of white wine and bread always goes well together. I especially recommended the ALMOHABANAS soft cheese bread puffs and the PAN DE BONO bread rings with your morning cup of Colombian coffee. Try new things and experiment a little, you simply don't know what you are missing until you try something new that you have never experienced before, and you may just love it! This is Shakira's hometown and you might just get a chance to see her in person while in Barranquilla, Colombia!

The room was average. The AC and lights turn off whenever you leave the room so if you go off for the day it's very hot when you return and doesn't cool off for quite awhile. Bedding was ok. Buffett breakfast was or but not that great. Area not good for finding local food near by
