We stayed in Casa Relax for three nights and there were definitely some positives, largely being the pretty pool area and the quiet at night. What surprised us was that the staff spoke absolutely no English, even though the website advertises that French, Spanish and English are spoken. We speak enough Spanish to get by so it wasn't really a... More

Nice pool and communal areas. Can use free laptops and internet as well as kitchen for lunch and dinner. The staff were not that friendly, sometimes main door took a while to get opened and we were guaranteed an extra night then told the next morning, after having to find a member of staff to ask, that there were actually...

Great value, and a relaxing oasis in Getsemani. Staff were great--though no one spoke English. Pool was very refreshing and the hammocks were a treat! We liked staying in Getsemani, and as others have said, the walk was cool. The area comes alive at night and you feel the rhythm of the people. The bathroom has a sliding wood divider--not... More

I had a good overall experience here. Pros: Location just a short walk from the walled city, very quiet at night, breakfast included, clean and friendly staff, pool was spectacular and worth the price alone. Cons: Coffee was terrible for Colombia, staff couldn't provide many recommendations (no maps of city, for example). If you're looking for a place to relax... More

We stayed a few days in Casa Relax and it felt like beeing in an oasis. A very familiar atmosphere with very nice people, a house parrot and a pool! The rooms are comfortable and clean. Very tasty breakfast with fresh fruits! It's located in the middle of Getsemani close to many bars and restaurants! We can fully recommend Casa... More

Having stayed in Getsemani in times less friendly, I was firstly amazed to see the backpacking fraternity out in their hordes, chilling in plaza Trinidad just 5 minutes away from the aptly named "Casa Relax". The hotel is nothing fancy but has a comfort to it, spacy rooms, air-co, swimming pool (handy)and friendly staff. The romance of the walled city... More

After a hectic backpacker charter, this place was like heaven. The rooms are basic, but the breakfast was amazing, the pool great, and the silence was incredible, for being in Getsemani! Highly recommended!

We stayed 5 nights at Casa Relax. The room itself was nothing fancy, though it was spacious and had plenty of room for our backpacks. It also came with a very good breakfast. There's no hot water, but it was so hot/humid, both day and night, in Cartagena that we didn't miss it too much. Fortunately, the room had AC,... More

I just spent a really pleasant 9 nights at the Hostal Casa Relax. I give it two thumbs up. I was travelling solo, and I felt really comfortable there and thought that the staff was nice, especially the main housekeeping woman who is usually there. Enjoyed the pool and the breakfasts. The courtyard is really pleasant, somehow it stays cool... More
