My husband and I had an amazing time at Marcus' precious B&B. Our stay marked the tail end of a three week vacation in Colombia and was the cherry on top of our amazing journey! The house in located only 10 minutes from the old city in the amazing and colorful town of Getsemani (be sure to keep your eyes open as the town is literally covered in amazing works of arts created by local residents). Marcus was incredibly helpful and pleasant and the lovely ladies who work in the home are amazing and catered to our every need. Also, the adorable tortoises who roam the house grounds are adorable- an added pleasure for animal lovers. I definitely recommend this place and would absolutely stay here again.

I and my husband spent 3 nights there. Everything was just perfect for us : the location, the calm, the cosy bedroom, the great "open air" bathroom ! The staff is very helpfull, and the owner as well. You ll even find map and small fridge with drinks in your bedroom. The breakfast is great. And when we left at 5:30am in the morning, we even had a coffee ready and the owner was there just to make sure we would get a taxi to airport ! I really recommend the place.

Our trip was wonderful, and a large reason was because of Marcus. It started for my girlfriend and myself with a cancelled flight due to a snowstorm, but Marcus was flexible enough to accommodate us. He is very fast in responding to all messages and questions. One evening my girlfriend even got sick and Marcus went out of his way to pick up some medicine at a pharmacy. Les Lezardes is absolutely beautiful and located in the cool area known as Getsmani. It's a bit edgier and has some great bars and restaurants. Best of all it's within walking distance of everything. We stayed there for almost a week and only used a taxi one time to head back to the airport. I am also a New Yorker who is used to walking a lot. But the entire charm of Cartagena is you can explore and be adventurous. Marcus's recommendations and knowledge of the area were very helpful. Breakfast is included and it delicious, it includes huevos pericos, toast, fresh fruit, and coffee. I looked forward to it every morning. I will absolutely be coming back.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 rooms, Souvenir d'Afrique and The Provence room. Both are great and very romantic...

- Cute and charming little B&B.
- Great location - a few minutes away from the heart of Cartagena yet rather quiet. Very near bars and restaurants in the Gersemaní neighbourhood.
- Owner is very nice and helpful, as are the other three ladies who work there. We asked them for lots of information and they also booked various tickets and excursions for us.
- Breakfast is absolutely delicious, also very flexible (in terms of personnal taste, and times).
- My only negative point would be the lack of air circulation in the room (our room was the "chambre d'amis"). If you don't want to sleep with the A/C on then you won't get much air unless you open the door (thus letting the mosquitos in). Even with the door open the room remained stuffy because of the narrow corridor it opened onto. If you like AC then this won't be a problem as the AC worked really well (and was silent).
- Note that the rooms are not traditional hotel rooms (at least the one we had): there was no ceiling to the shower - it was open to the sky (we liked it but some people may not) and the setting was special - if you're not looking for originality you might not like this place.If you're looking for a tiny special B&B and a warm welcome you will like it.

This B&B is spotless, an oasis just outside of the old city within a short walk of Trinidada church with a nightly lively square. The neighborhood is safe, walkable and shows the real life of Cartagena. Marcus is a wonderful host. Staff superb. When my plans unexpectedly changed & he could not accommodate me, he booked a place offshore on one of the Rosario Islands. Kayaking, beach & more as a contrast to the City. I'll be back.

Marcus and his staff including Manuela do an incredible job in this have in Cartagena.

From the smiling welcome (with a complimentary coffee) to the smiling 5am goodbye (including an early coffee prepared by Marcus himself and a prompt taxi again organised by Marcus) we had a great stay twice in this guesthouse. In fact, Marcus was even extremely helpful prior to arrival giving us tips on things to do, where to eat and drink. Above and beyond the call of duty!

The rooms are homely, interesting and high class with great showers and lovely features. The beds are extremely comfy and it is incredibly tranquil. The jacuzzi and sun trap were a hidden gem that we used well!

The breakfast is more than ample with great fresh fruit and again just great service.

We cannot (and would not want to!) fault this place. Wonderful.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent and slightly different.

I only have great things to say about Les Lezard and the Host Marcus. Our family's experience (i.e. one couple + my parents) enjoyed some of the best holidays we had thanks to the numerous tips and great host provided by the owner of this B&B. He has gone through great lengths to ensured that our experience was smooth throughout our stay. Thank you you Marcus!

This is above the fact that the house is spotless, well attended, cosy, comfortable, clean and the showers include proper hot water. Sleeping was never interrupted and the place includes a small jacuzzi. Comes highly recommended.
