It's definitely the best place I've stayed in the Getsmani area in Cartagena. Once you step inside the door, the pool area magnetically pulls you in and doesn't let you go. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The owner could easily be mistaken for a zen master.

Casa relax is a lovely quiet hotel - we were very surprised that we didn't here anything from the street or neighbour hotels. The pool is essential with two small children and is in shadow most of the day. Good breakfast and coffee.

Casa Relax is located a short walk from the main Plaza de Trinidad but far enough away from the noisy clubs and bars along Media Luna to get some sleep. The best part of the hostal was it’s central pool surrounded by shaded tables and hammocks to chill in - which we put to great use throughout our stay. We... More

The pool and a/c are definitely the best aspects of this hotel. The grounds and the breakfast were also quite nice, the room was clean (although a door separating the bathroom from the bedroom would have been nice), and the beds were comfortable. The location is good but had I been traveling alone, I might have felt a little uncomfortable... More

If you can over look the extremely rude staff, the misplaced bookings, the mistaken overcharging upon departure, the place is not bad.. Location is good . But you're. Going to get what you pay for. If you're not expecting much you'll mildly satisfied. As we were.

Perfect location to explore Getsemani and the bustling old city. The rooms are pleasant and the pool is a welcome benefit after a day strolling through the streets of Cartagena. The staff were very helpful and assisted us with transport arrangements for our next stop.

The pool is very nice and is often covered in shade. Inside the hotel is quiet in the evening, although the partying the street starts early and goes until late. I tuned it out fairly easily but seems not everyone can.

A couple of streets away from the touristical part of the city which we liked but maybe other guests could dislike. Rooms are very simple. Beds are ok. Rether quiet if ther is no party. swimming pool is lovely. Nice patio to hang out before starting the day or after having discovered the city. A reasonable option in Carta.

The hotel is located close to the walled city... close to great dining options... close to a great Cafe for morning " lattes". Breakfast is served around a long communal table where we met and enjoyed the company of many other guests. We chose the hotel because of the pool and it was perfect after a hot day of sightseeing.

From the second you bang on that mysterious door, and the wooden peephole slides open, those warm eyes looking down at you, you're welcomed into a private, colonial world behind the wall, off the vibrant, graffitied Getsemani streets. "Tranquilo, tranquilo..." my man informs me, after sailing into the port of Cartagena with no money and no passport in the middle... More
