Overview

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.

Relaxing Cartagena

  • 5 of 5

Great location of a nice apartment. All of historic Cartagena is within walking distance. Claudia and her colleagues were excellent in daily cleaning and linen change. Balcony is a nice vantage point to watch street life down below. (Could be noisy some nights). Overall, very happy with this apartment.

Well located apartment in a building with local residents

  • 4 of 5

Well located apartment in a building with local residents, close to restaurants, shopping, everything. In a very secure building on the 3rd floor, the apartment is comfortably and stylishly furnished. Not in its prime, the unit can use a little attention to creaky doors and other mechanical inconveniences. Best thing about the unit are Claudia and Marta, the caretakers. Cleaning everyday, they are lovely. Air-con can be better but did their job adequately. Would definitely rent again from Alberto who has been responsive and helpful.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We flew into Cartagena after 5 days in Medellin and were fortunate enough to land at this wonderful apartment. It was plenty large enough for two people, was clean and located inside the walled city, which we found much preferable to being in the high rise section outside the walls. We were hoping for a little more of the tradition and culture aspect than the pure tourist aspect and this is the location for that. Also, the caretakers, Marta and Claudia were fantastic, friendly and extremely helpful. We highly recommend this place and thank Alberto for the privilege of staying there.

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.

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.
