There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor which guests of the three apartments share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment. This studio apartment is for 1-2 guests, but it can be combined with one bedroom apartment next door to make a two bedroom/two bath unit for up to 6 guests. In addition, there's a separate two bedroom apartment listing for a quieter apartment in the back of this same building. You can “mix and match” the various apartments to accommodate up to 12 people, all in the same floor. If you'd like a bigger place, or if you'd like to book multiple apartments (parties of 1-36 can be accommodated), please visit links to my other Cartagena listings by clicking on my Trip Advisor profile photo. We look forward to having you!More

Interaction with guests
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document and website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip. Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, a cook or cooking class while there, feel free to ask him!

We emailed with Barbara to reserve our 6 night stay to explore this historic UNESCO site. A $5 Uber brought us from the airport to busy Calle 36/Moneda Street. Here we were met by French/English/Spanish-speaking manager, Benjamin, to climb the stairway to the street-facing room....More

This tiny flat is right in the heart of the old town so is close to everything. It is located above the street level stores and has a small balcony to sit on. We were able to walk everywhere.

About the neighborhood
These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds! The building is on Calle de la Moneda, which is a busy and lively street during the day but quiet at night. The street is lined with shops and a couple of small, inexpensive restaurants. Just about everything is closed by 8 pm, however, so you’re not disturbed by noise during the night. At the far end of Calle de la Moneda is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building. And a block around the corner is the beautiful Parque Fernández...
Getting around
Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far! If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4-5 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
