Overview

San Diego Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, sleeping sofa in living, sleeps a maximum of 3 people

This is a unique one bedroom apartment located at the heart of the old colonial city center, within the 16th Century wall, one block away from famous Convent Santa Clara, often featured in Garcia Marquez´novels, and now a 5-star hotel. It has amazing views to the Las Bovedas Square, where they sell all kinds of original Colombian crafts, and it faces the ancient wall and a beautiful sunset view over the Caribbean. It was designed by two famous Spanish artists that live in Spain and used it sporadically during holidays. It´s a luxurious apartment with all kinds of amenities, i.e. broad-band WIFI internet, satellite LED TV, free national calls, wash and dryer, air conditioning, oven, daily cleaning, etc, etc, etc.

The apartment is located at the heart of the colonial city center, a couple of blocks away from restaurants, bars and cafes but still in a relatively quiet residential area. You can see and hear the ocean and take a swim in the nearby, literally a hundred yards, beach.

Great location and lots of room

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in January and couldn't have been happier. The apartment is spacious, clean and well-stocked with towels, pots and pans. There is a nice view of the walls of the city over which you can see the ocean and it is close to restaurants and services. Alberto the owner is very nice and was extremely responsive. There is always someone available to help and answer questions. We found it very quiet, too, which was a treat as cities in South America tend to be noisier than in the U.S. We walked all over the old town from this apartment and would recommend it. Lots of room to hang and put away clothes so you don't have to live out of a suitcase at all. Nice big table to organize things on and a comfortable couch. There is a washer and dryer. Due to low water pressure it takes a long time to do a load of wash so plan accordingly.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Alberto was very kind since the first email and we had a great time in this beautiful apartment. There are no pictures of the bathroom, but it is very large and comfortable. Claudia was super sweet and she would clean every day. Absolutely love it and would recommend it to everyone. BEST LOCATION YOU CAN THINK OF. Worth it completely. Thank you Alberto!

Superb Location In Walled City

  • 5 of 5

Lots of light, cool artwork, excellent large bathroom, 24 hour security, a

little tienda just downstairs (and a major grocery chain 2 blocks away), easily walkable to anywhere in the Old City, nice views, huge TV, close to the coolest square in the city (Plaza San Diego) and some of the best restaurants as well make this location a winner. Be aware it is on the third floor and no elevator, but this is a minor quibble. There is also someone onsite at all times to help with anything one may need. If I am fortunate enough to ever return to Cartagena I know where I'll be staying. Oh, and we had a fireworks display out the front window one night!

Awesome location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in April, 2014. The location is spectacular. Apartment was very clean and nice. Staff was superb. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the noise. On Friday night a large group of young people gathered out front and partied until late in the night. On Saturday, the girls in the apartment next door partied from 5PM to midnight with the music volume cranked to the absolute max (deafening) and sang and danced non-stop for 7 hours. I know that is Colombia, but they did not even invite us.

Apartment in Cartagena

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a perfect location in the old city. I enjoyed being able to walk to all of the famous areas within the old city and being able to see the day to day activities of the local people. The space was perfect for 3 people and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was clean and everything worked well. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be in a great location within the walled city. It was close to great restaurants, the mini-bus to Santa Marta, the beach, the old wall, the handicraft stalls and the plazas.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming San Diego apartment. It is in the walled city, extremely close to the Sofitel and San Diego square. Walking distance to anywhere within the walled city (although we don't mind a nice walk!).

The apartment was sparkling clean and spacious - we were impressed with the amount of room - the pictures really don't do it justice! It fit 3 people comfortably. The washer and dryer were a welcomed relief after staying in hotels in other parts of Colombia. And his staff that live in the building were amazing, sweet people. We loved them!

Thank you for everything!
