My husband and I selected Grand Suite Condesa and my daughter chose Junior Suite Popa.I had spent about 4 hours researching boutique hotels and we only wanted to stay in the historic district.
Wonderfully decorated with white wicker and blue and white fabrics--very Caribbean in feeling. Very light and comfortable rooms. Bathrooms are very up to date.
We were able to walk everywhere during the day and sometimes we took taxis at night when going to restaurants like the Yacht Club.
Taxis are very cheap, but be aware that the drivers usually don't know where anything is, so make sure you do!!
We just loved the hotel and Luisa was especially helpful. Delicious breakfasts! If you are a tea drinker, as I am, bring your own teabags, as they only focus on coffee.
We definitely plan on returning as Cartagena is a wonderful jewel of a city--very convenient direct flights from JFK via JetBlue and the airport is only 12 minutes to the center of town!!
We can't wait to go back for another long weekend.....
