Place was way bigger in person, pictures don't do it any justice, perfect location to relax on the beach or do water activities, plenty of restaurants to walk to and eat. Next time I'm in Cartagena I'm staying here!!! A++++

PROS -Taxis are accessible.

-Walking distance to restaurants and bars in bocagrande.

-Nice views

-Modern equipment

CONS -Apartment was not very well kept.

-The security are not very polite.

-Building is old.

-Elevators are small and slow.

I am not saying I would not recommend this place to certain demographics, however I would look elsewhere if you are a younger crew just trying to enjoy Cartagena.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the location. Indeed, taxis are very accessible and the apartment is walking distance to restaurants and bars in Bocagrande. Nothing beats the view form the apartment and the apartment is fully furnished with modern furniture and appliances. The apartment undergoes a quality assurance test after every check-out, we ensure that all appliances are in working order and that the inventory is complete and ready for the next guest. We would be most grateful if you can specify the issues that you encountered during your visit. The building is old, but it has a lot of charm and it is one of the most emblematic buildings in Cartagena.

Esperaba mejor.

  • 3 of 5

Mi experiencia en Cartagena fue buena pero pensamos que iba a ser mejor. El apartamento tal cual en las fotografías por dentro pero le falta MUCHO mantenimiento. El edificio por fuera muy feo y viejo, de hecho nuestra primera impresión fue de susto. El señor Edgar fue muy gentil con nosotros y atendió nuestras necesidades siempre, muy agradecidos con él.
