Had a great stay in the 2 bedroom apartment. Centrally located and you can walk to everything. Highly recommend.

My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in Cartagena at this lovely apartment. Very comfortable and clean, in the middle of all the action. Loved the balcony. Having air conditioning and hot water was a huge plus. We will definitely like to return someday. Cartagena is stunning and this accommodation made it even more perfect.

We just arrived a few days ago and cannot wait to go back. Our apartment was located right along the walled city. Walking distance to Clock Tower where you could grab a quick bite from local street vendors, and work your way to any tour or just walk around town. Very safe location. Apartment spotless. Benjamin was super helpful and...

Management response:

I am so glad that you loved Benjamin (is there a person that does not think he is amazing?!) and the location. I certainly look forward to your return to Cartagena! Thanks for the lovely review.

About the neighbourhood
Located in the vibrant San Diego neighborhood, everything you need or desire is within short walking distance of your apartment. A large supermarket, Exito, is just around the corner from the apartment. The iconic ambassador of Colombian coffee, Juan Valdez, now adds his name to a chain of Juan Valdez Cafes, one of which is located just a block away.
Calle de la Moneda is typically busy and crowded during the day, but very tranquil and peaceful at night, as there are no bars and restaurants lining our street.
Catch a romantic horse drawn carriage to take you back to the apart
Getting around
The Walled City of Cartagena is simply a delight best experienced on foot. You can explore the entire city this way! My recommendation is to simply wander, get lost (don't worry- you can't!) and then catch a horse drawn carriage back to the apartment!
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Rafael Nunez Intl. Airport: 3.0 km
Take taxi to 7-32 Calle de la Moneda
The airport is located 3 km north-east of the old city. At the airport you can find several ATMs and an exchange bureau where you can change cash and traveler's checks. To get downtown, go to the taxi stand which will give you a receipt with the exact amount you'll have to pay to the driver, around $10-12,000 depending on your destination (2015 rate). To get into town more cheaply, walk about 50 m (150 ft) to the street and hail one of yellow cabs. You should be able to get a cab to take you into town for about $6,000.
