The woman who runs this hotel might be one of the nicest women in Cartagena. She was amazing- made us feel completely at home! This is not actually in the proper walled city, but it is still an AMAZING area and is a 5 minute walk to the main area. Also, the pool is very tiny- a few feet wide and does not have the traditional US Style Swim up bar, as you are likely thinking of it. This is a "room" in a house style hotel. I think there were only 3 rooms, so you are really staying more like in a guest house, with a private room and bath. You have to ring the buzzer to get back inside, and it is VERY quiet inside. It is lovely, but just be aware of those factors. Not a traditional hotel. Again, the woman running the house is absolutely amazing. Very clean and comfortable beds!

First the good: Casa Marta has an excellent location, right next to the Plaza de Trinidad, which is basically where all the night life is in Getsemani. Despite being so close, the room we were in was actually quite quiet. It was clean and had everything we needed, although I don't think its aesthetics are going to blow anyone away. It was fine. The people at Casa Marta are generally friendly, which is good, as they don't give you a key to the front door, so you need to basically ring the bell every time you enter the property. But they always answered with a smile and everything was nice. My main issue with the Casa is that it's not really a hotel, B&B, etc. It pretty much felt like staying in someone's extra room. Upon arrival we were asked to enter our information into a

The hotel is in a wonderful location, you can walk everywhere. Rooms are clean and simple and staff (don't speak English) are very helpful. No breakfast but there are several coffee shops within 100 meters. Good restaurants in the area as well

We found this hotel rather expensive for the quality on offer. 755€ for 4 nights, 3 people in the same room. Bye the way, this amount was debited from our account DURING our stay, without the slightest notice or bill, so be aware!! On my bank account there is no mention of the local currency, only dollars and euros. We booked this hotel based on other travellers opinions, however quite a number of these opinions were recorded in 2014, 2015. I get the impression we're not even discussing the same place, something (or someone) must have changed along the way. The service generally was very average, not enough towels in the bathroom, only Spanish spoken, we had to fill in our details on a computer when we arrived, this is a first for me, and I've been in quite a few hotels and

Response from jmmv1976, Manager at Casa Marta Cartagena
Responded Jan 12, 2017
Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We regret to see that you didn't have a good experience staying with us. This is quite unfortunate as most of our guests do enjoy their stay, but we recognize that not all guests have similar preferences. For instance, some guests don't mind the language barrier at all and are aware of our billing policy, which we explained to you in writing. You also received an invoice with the breakdown of your expenses. The reason why we do this is because we've had many bad experiences where guests checkout without paying. In any case, we will further clarify our policies with the online booking agent you chose so as to avoid similar misunderstandings in the future. Additionally, we will look into the situation with the plunge pool, this time of the year is a windy and rainy one and sometimes sand and tree leaves tend to accumulate, but we can assure you the water is clean as we do maintenance in a weekly basis. Regarding the pictures, we have this issue all the time. Often guests upload pictures onto our trip advisor page, sometimes of the wrong place and sometimes inappropriate ones. We are constantly writing to trip advisor on this matter. We, however take full responsibility for these observations and will strive to do better. On the positive side, we appreciate that you liked the breakfast. With best regards Casa Marta

We enjoyed our stay here very much. Can't beat the location and the price. It's in the oldest part of Cartagena. The rooms are spacious and have AC (you'll need it!). The hosts are friendly and helpful. You can walk all over the old sections of Cartagena from here. There are fancier places out there but I doubt if you can beat this for the price
