quiet oasis in an intense city

  • 5 of 5
I confirm everything nice written about this townhouse. Me and my husbamd came to Cartagena for international convention, and stayed initially at an older apartment in the colpnial building at Plaza de Bolivar. After the convention we wanted to stay a couple days to enjoy the city, qnd booked another an apartment in Boca Grande. After inspecting it we decided it's too far from the Walled City, and on the spur of the moment I called the contact number for La Casa del Virrey Eslava, not realizing it's almost midnight local time. Not only was my call taken by a nice lady speaking perfect English, but I was invited to see the apartment next morning.
We moved in the next day, and enjoyed very much the location, top quality appliances, and wonderful sunset views. Warning: the townhouse has 4 levels, with bedrooms located on 2 and 3rd level, terrace and washing machine on the 4th, there is no elevator, just internal staircase.
Thank you, Oziris !

Cartagena - La perla de caribe

  • 5 of 5
This place exceeded my expectations. A lovely apartment with a great view of the ocean. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. The sunsets were amazing and the views were breathtaking. The staff were friendly and helpful and wanted to make my stay as happy as possible. The facilities were excellent with a roof terrace which was private, a sauna, jacuzzi (roof and indoor) and a fitness center. The location is just perfect, in the heart of the historic town 'El Centro' of Cartagena. Its possible to walk everywhere from it, there are very nice restaurants close to the apartment, which is just perfect e.g. 'La Cevicheria' (known from Anthony Bourdains - No Reservations on the Travel Channel) nice ambiance and excellent seafood. I highly recommend this apartment!

BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE IN CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

  • 5 of 5
Very luxury and well located property in Cartagena,;close to all the interesting and touristic places of the old city.

The property was very clean and very well maintained. the socail areas are perfect for the climate and the management very friendly and proffesional. The security of the place was wonderful

The apartment is very well furnished and big and fullfil all the needs of the tourists

Many places to visit during the day and at night. Wonderful to take night walks and visit nice restaurants, plazas, narrow streets, bars on the walls and take also the a nice and romantic horse carriage drive.

The most beautiful part of this apartment is the private terrace located in the 3rd level on the apartment from where you can observe all the roofs and the ocean of this very beautiful and romantic old city.

I certanly highly recommend this place and cartagena to everybody including my own friends.

Cartagena Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was spectacular on all accounts! The location in the walled city was perfect for getting to and from anything you'd want to do or see in the city. The beds were great, the rooms clean and modern, and the utilities very much up to date. The views from the terrace were beautiful and the pools/complex terrace were an incredible addition to the whole package. The people at the front desk were very helpful and everyone in surrounding apartments very kind and courteous.
The location was safe, and allowed for easy access to everything you'd want to do in town. I highly recommend this listing and promise that you will not be disappointed.

Helpful tips: If you have trouble going up and down stairs, I would be hesitant to book this apartment, as all bedrooms require ascending at least one flight of stairs. Due to high temperatures and humidity, the full air conditioning was fantastic! Be sure to utilize the complex-wide amenities such as the workout facility, hot tubs, terrace and pools.

All around fantastic place to stay and call home!
