I absolutely loved staying here with my mom. Both of us loved this wonderful bed & breakfast. It was quaint and made me feel right at home. Being in the presence of Marta reminded me of living with my Colombian abuela. Since there aren't many rooms, customer service is top-class (almost like having private service!). She and her staff were... More

Casa Marta was great! It is a nice little house with just two rooms which makes you feel very comfortable. Our friends were staying next door so we basically had the place to ourselves. The rooms are very well equipped (AC/TV/fridge/closet...) and Marta is very attentive to anything you need. Whether you need directions, help booking a car or are... More

We booked both rooms at Casa Marta with a group of friends and we had a great time. The Rooms fit 3 people comfortably and it was nice to have hot water after several weeks in Colombia. Marta was helpful by giving us a map and an overview of the city when we arrived. She also put us in touch... More

The service at this hotel was honestly amazing. Marta and her family make the hotel seem like home and was always able to make us smile. She was always so nice. We were able to have great conversations with her, she helped us learn our way around the city, recommended the things we should do and see, got us an... More

This was the best experience I have had staying at a hotel in Cartagena. The warm feeling that Marta brings is like no other and the service was that of the highest star hotels. However, the best part of staying here was getting to meet Mrs. Marta. She was not only a phenomenal host but also became a great friend... More

Location was fantastic. Air conditioning was a blessing. Marta went out of her way to help us with some stomach issues we experienced by accompanying us to the drugstore and giving us a personalized tour along the way. Definitely recommend.

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...
