there was a bit of a mddle at the beginning of our stay because a double booking was made by mistake, but Albert and everyone at the appartment went the extra mile sorting the difficulty out, and we had a wonderful time in Cartagena. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to be at the heart of the old town, and it was peaceful too, with a lovely little swimming pool in the courtyard.

“Location, location, location!”
Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This lovely apartment is in the PERFECT location in the old city! Walk to shops, restaurants, the grocery store, or just dart across the street for a tasty mojito. The little park/plaza just up the road comes alive at night! Lots to see and do! The apartment is clean as a pin and absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed having the private pool on those hot, sunny days. Al and Marce were terrific, and it's great to have onsite help (Reynaldo is a champ!) The only drawback - and its minor - is that there are other apartments in this unit and to enter the courtyard, a central doorbell must be rung. It rings all day and night with folks coming and going, which can be a bit disruptive. All of the other factors outweigh this, though - it wouldn't be a reason not to spend time at this exceptional place!

“Great Location”

The old walled city of Cartagena is a magnificent gem with restaurants, bars, shopping, nightlife, and adorable streets that you can stroll around for hours. This apartment is in an excellent location right in the heart of it all. I typically stay in hotels when I travel, but wanted to try something new, and there were definitely some pros to this novel approach. Ironically, the thing I loved the most was the washer and dryer. The humidity in Cartagena is unbearable at times. I recommend sleeping in, sitting in a cafe, snorkeling/diving, or relaxing in the pool (basically anything involving water or air-conditioning) until the sun is low enough in the sky to flood the streets of Cartagena with shade, at which point it is safe to venture out. In lieu of this, having a washer/dryer definitely comes in handy because your clothing is sure to be drenched with sweat, after a morning in the heat. Another pro was that the unit definitely felt very private, and it was a much larger space than you'd get at a similar price point at a hotel. We didn't really take advantage of the full kitchen, but it is also worthwhile if you don't want to eat every meal out (although the food in Cartagena is excellent). The only real con was that the mattress was just okay. I'm admittedly a snob in this arena, preferring W-Hotel style mattresses with loads of pillows and super soft sheets. There was also an issue with the hot water, but Al handled it promptly and courteously.

“Great apartment in a beautiful city!!”

I traveled to Cartagena in February 2015 for five days. My husband and I as well as my 7 yr old daughter stayed in this beautiful apartment inside the walled city. Perfect location in the middle of everything!! Al & Marce were excellent hosts greeting us with a tray of fresh fruit in the kitchen, as well as fresh flowers in the apt. and candles in the bathrooms. Nice touch! The apt is gorgeous! As soon as you walk into the courtyard you see the beauty! Pool was great too! Refreshing to jump in after a hot day walking around Cartagena. Al was also very gracious in giving us recommendations on where to go and eat in Cartagena. Overall it was an excellent stay! I recommend this apt highly as well as visiting the city of Cartagena! Colombia is an amazingly beautiful country with friendly people. Your dollar also goes far in Colombia! It's also safe! Don't believe the hype that it's unsafe to travel to Colombia. It's a shame more Americans don't visit Colombia. They don't know what they are missing! The coffee region is also stunning! "The only risk is wanting to stay"! Thanks again Al & Marce! Loved your place!
