Marcus is a phenomenal host. I stayed at Les Lezards for 9 nights, using it as my home base while visiting Colombia. Marcus truly goes out of his way to help his guests - from the moment you walk in his door you feel you have arrived to a very special place. Les Lezards offers the best of both worlds, a bed and breakfast in an authentic, lively and vibrant neighborhood, and a peaceful place to rest your head after enjoying the sights and sounds of Cartagena.

Amazing location in Getsemani. Clean, comfortable and charming rooms. Very secure. In-room TV, personal safe, refrigerator, hot shower, and A/C are added bonuses. Delicious daily breakfast. Marcus and his staff are wonderful hosts. Marcus provides invaluable travel insights and sightseeing tips (complete with his own map). Highly recommend!

This cute hotel blown me away with its all different style of rooms . I was received like a queen by the owner Marcus who is the nicest guy ever by the way , the 2 colombian ladies who cook amazing breakfasts and smile all the time , and of course a precious turtle who walks by slowly once in a while in the dining area ... the place is simply good vibes , stylish , clean and most importantly located in the best area of Getsemani ; an artsy little neighbourhood safe and nearby all attractions while being extremely quiet . Make sure you take a dip in the jacuzzi on the rooftop , super fun and relaxing ! I recommend this place with all my heart as I stayed there with my yoga group , we all enjoyed it very much .

Room Tip: All rooms are great with a cool and different concept . I tried all of them and loved them all !

I recently stayed for 5 nights at Les Lezards B & B. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. It is located in Getsemani, very close to the Trinidad Plaza so it was close to the night-time atmosphere but away from the noise of it (perfect combination!).
My room was the 'blue room' which is probably the smallest room but as I was travelling solo that was fine for me. The room was quirkily decorated, using original features where possible. I loved it. The air con was very quiet so I was able to run it all night. The fridge was very welcome (Cartagena is very very hot!).
The internal passageways & little places to sit were beautiful - very tranquil.
Breakfasts were the best that I had in my entire 6 week trip. The staff were very friendly & attentive & my room was kept spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable & the quality of bedlinen was very good also.
The Jacuzzi & sitting out area at the top was a 'godsend'. Every day when I returned from my (hot) sightseeing, I headed straight up there - it was heaven!
The 2 resident tortoises were a delight (lots of photos) & 'shared' my fruit each morning at breakfast.
Marcus, the owner, was extremely helpful & polite. He answered all my initial e mail enquiries etc very speedily.
Free wifi was important for me (for business reasons) & this worked fine.
When I toured around Cartagena & around the Bocagrande area I saw the high rise hotels there & was so pleased that I had booked somewhere 'within the walls'. Les Lezards was perfect for me & I'd go back again like a shot.
I'm happy to thoroughly recommend it.

My stay at Les Lezards can only be described as 'exemplary.' The rooms, accompanied by a Spanish motif, are subtle yet calming in appearance. The culture of the house is very rich and satisfying. The staff were helpful and caring in attending to your every need. I certainly recommend Les Lezards and look forward to staying on my next visit to Cartagena, a most amazing city.

I totally recommend Les Lazards! I stayed in the Santorin’s room and it was absolutely amazing. The deco makes you feel at home, the room is really comfortable. The detail I loved the most was the open shower in the second floor, amazing for the weather of the coast.
The price is totally reasonable, well located (10 minutes walking from the city center, close to all the amazing restaurants and stops, to every part of the city by taxi you wont spend more than 6 thousand pesos). The service of Manuela and other girls were personal and special. The Jacuzzi works really well.
