We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and were well taken care of by Marta, Anna, Miguel and "Joe." We were looking for a comfortable place to stay and an introduction to the people of Columbia - we found both at Casa Marta. And ps - we loved Getsemani, too.

It is true indeed: Marta's house is your house. Marta, Ana (niece), Miguel and Fully will do their utmost to make you feel at home. We stayed in both rooms (one even has a walk-in closet!), and had an excellent stay. The beds are big and comfy, the shower is just like home, excellent internet acces (able to watch streaming...

12 minute walk into the old city. On a dreary seeming street across from a police station. Small plaza 100 feet away looked bleak when we arrived but turned into a delightful area at 5:00 when the closed buildings turned into restaurants with outside dining and the plaza filled with kids, locals and backpacker types (lots of hostels in the...

Everything we read about Casa Marta was true. Marta and her niece are lovely. We felt immeditately at home.....greeted with cold, delicious ice tea, They helped us with everything we needed from restaurants, tours, grocery stores, taxis, etc. They were super sweet to my children and gave them bracelets to remember Casa Marta. Someone was always at the house in... More

This place is ideal if you're travelling alone, have a basic knowledge of Spanish and want to immerse yourself in Colombian culture. Remember that this is not your traditional hotel operation: it is a private home with two rooms that are rented out to travellers. That being said, Marta and her staff (Miguel, José and Anita) are all lovely and... More

Casa Marta lived up to its reputation when we stayed for 5 days December 2013. The location was fantastic and despite our plans to go elsewhere we spent most evenings sitting in the square entertained by the friendly locals, eating good food, and watching the world go by.aThe rooms were comfortable , food and coffee always available and Marta and...

Enjoyed my stay here. Marta could not nicer. Her niece's English was great and she was very helpful giving us guidance. I was concerned with the location as I had read that it was best to stay in the walled city. However I think Marta's location was perfect, quiet street, ten minute walk to the walled city, less than ten... More

What a great place to stay. I truly enjoyed my time here. The location is convenient (10 min walk to the walled city, 5 min cab ride to the beach), the neighborhood is safe, and the room is clean and air conditioned. But, the best thing of all is the hospitality of the hosts. It started with sitting down at... More

I stayed here through the recommendation of a friend of a friend.

Casa Marta becomes your real home 'casa' in Cartagena, immediately you feel a family member not a one more tourist. It is located in one of the best Cartagena neighborhoods by the Plaza de la Trinidad, safe and truly colorful square rich in amenities. Walking distance from the Old city. Senora Marta- the owner is a greatly inspiring lady, she... More
