About the property

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.

A nice place,but need to know a few things.

  • 4 of 5

Expect to buy household supplies, easily done in market only 3 blocks from house. Not much provided. Also expect lots of noise until very late in the evening from across the street. Do not expect to be lulled to sleep with the waves. Air conditioning is great! Here also the water costs more than beer! The beach is not that close and not very nice, but by taxi you can go to playa Castillo grande and other beaches much calmer and without so much traffic. An EXCELLENT place for pizza is Rustic Pizza Gourmet,on Centro de calle. Very close to apt.

Very comfortable in this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this apartment. It was spacious, clean and had a great view of the ocean. The location in the old city is walking distance to everything. I especially like the location of the bedroom as it was like a cocoon area surrounded by other rooms around it, making sleeping great. It was wonderful having daily cleaning service. Christina made the beds, changed linens/towels and cleaned the apartment.

Highly recommended.

The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment in Cartagena ! Booking was super easy and Alberto was very helpful in the process. When we arrived, Christina was there to meet us and make sure we got settled in. Christina also made sure we had everything we needed and was very helpful to us for the whole week. Thanks Christina! The location is great in the NE section of the old walled city. Close to a large supermarket (Exito) for everything you could possibly want. The location and unit were quiet enough to allow for a good nights sleep and the AC worked great, which was wonderful after a day out in hot and humid Cartagena. Make sure to take a day trip to Playa Blanca - a very nice beach about an hour away.

Thanks Alberto! We hope to stay here again.

Above my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is absolutely wonderful! I feel like I will not be able to do it enough justice when describing it. The location is prime for doing all the touristy things in Cartagena. It's directly across the street from the artisans market (very nice shopping). There is a convenience store at the base of the apartment which makes grabbing a snack or drink very easy. The location is superb for grabbing. Taxi anyone of the day or night. Now for inside the apartment...it has everything you could possibly want and more. Two very nice cold air conditioners, a fully stocked kitchen (we were even given welcoming drinks and snacks when we arrived), a gorgeous view, spacious bathroom (with hot water..rare in Cartagena), and daily housecleaning. If I am ever in Cartagena, I would definitely stay here again!

Cartagena de Indias is one of the most beautiful Colonial towns in the World. It has been declared a World Heritage by the United Nations and it boasts amazing historic attraction, cathedral and churches, the 16th Century San Felipe Castle and many other colonial forts, the Inquisition Palace, the colonial wall that surrounds the city, the many palaces and old mansions that are all reminiscent of the old world in the Caribbean. The apartment is located at the heart of the old historic City, just one block away of the famous Convent Santa Clara, often featured in Garcia Marquez´novels and now a famous 5 star hotel. The apartment has two balconies to a nice square, Las Bovedas, and the ancient wall and looks over it to a western exposure of the Caribbean which not only you can see but also hear at night leaping the shore. An amazing location and beautiful sight.
