“Lots of character”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed here for two nights about a month ago. The apartment is very nice and modern and also very quiet and safe at night. The location is very central within the old quarter of the city known as El Centro and is about a three minute walk to the Plaza de Coches or the main entry to this part of the city.

The property manager lives down the street and speaks fluent English and was helpful. The street itself feels like one of the streets in the French Quarter in New Orleans as it has lots of character and ambience. I can't wait to stay again.

“Fantastic Stay - Even Better than Advertised!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed for 4 nights in the apartment and enjoyed every minute of it. After arriving to the property around 7:30PM, the apartment manager Henry was very welcoming and helpful in showing us around, despite the fact that we were over two hours late. He is sincere in wanting all of his guests to have a great experience, and goes out of his way to provide just that for them. The apartment is located right in the middle of the walled old city, and is within walking distance to almost everything you need to see. The grocery store is conveniently located up the street, and around it are many stores, restaurants, and street vendors with local food and fresh fruit. It was nice to be able to buy food and use the gorgeous kitchen, which was complete with all necessary amenities. While we enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony, it felt good to come back inside to the air conditioning! The whole area is very safe, and we felt welcomed by the locals, even though we speak very little Spanish. It was definitely helpful to have Henry nearby, as he speaks fluent English and was kind enough to take us to the large market, and also to a Chivas "party bus". We cannot speak highly enough about him. The owners left a detailed book with a lot good suggestions on things to do and see. We particularly enjoyed walking around the city wall, and the recommended restaurant, Monte Sacro. The head chef there, Abraham, also speaks English and was very kind in providing us with suggestions and directions, on top of exposing us to some delicious food! We loved the live music on the balcony, and went twice during our short stay. If for some reason you do need a cab to get around the city, we suggest calling Gabriel (300-747-4111) as he gave us a great tour of the new city, and made stops to get us local coffee and street food. All in all we couldn't say more about how pleased we were with the trip. Both before and after arrival, we felt nothing but well taken care of. When we go back to Cartagena, we would not think of staying anywhere else!

“As great as it looks!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed at this rental with my husband and brother as we visited Cartagena for a week this month. Prior to our arrival, our correspondence with the rental agent was very helpful. We received a detailed travel guide for the city and a lot of helpful information about the apartment and the surrounding area. Once we arrived to the apartment, Henry helped us get settled and gave us great information. The apartment is exactly the way it looks in the photos. Everything was clean and organized. Our favorite part was the balcony overlooking Calle de la Moneda. This street has a lot of commerce and it is a great place to people watch. The apartment is very well located for anything within the historic district. We were very pleased and are recommending it to our friends and family. We also hope to return!

“amazing experience. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on my next trip.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

amazing location and everything is exactly as described. communication was excellent as was the property manager that was insanely helpful and spoke both English and Spanish. the entire process from inquiry on the condo to check in to check out was incredibly smooth and informative. the owner even sent a 5 page info guide on hotels and things to do in the area which made the planning process a breeze. I 100% recommend this property and can't wait for my next trip to Columbia.
cheers!

“Very nice. Amazing location.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment is very well located within walking distance to many restaurants, ATMs, and places of interest. It looks just like the pictures posted and it has all the ammenities listed. It is very clean and the balcony is truly fun to people watch. Henry the administrator was very helpful. He is bilingual and went out of his way to accomodate my every need. I highly reccomend it and will return here during my next vacation to Colombia.

We stayed 9 nights and enjoyed our stay immensely. Very nice to NOT be in a hotel that long. You really are in the midst of "Old City" and the flavor that brings. We were able to walk to most everything. The apartment was exactly as in the photos. Apartment manager, Henry, was great.
