This little place was an unexpected find. It's certainly not for everyone, but if you have an open mind and are adventurous, this is a great place to explore the real Cargtagena, away from the tourists and crowds and the expensive shops and restaurants within the old city or Bocagrande.
I admit, the rooms are a little run down and the bathroom was a bit dirty. The hot water also didn't work the whole time I was there, but Cartagena is so hot, I really didn't need hot water. But.....if you can overlook all of that (haha!), staying at Patio de Getsemani can be the highlight of your visit.
The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The best part about this hotel is its location. While some may find the area "sketchy" or "scary," I found it to be a wonderful neighborhood and a great place to meet locals and other tourists. It's a short stroll to Plaza Trinidad - where the community gathers in the evening for beer, coffee, food, games, even zumba on the church steps.
