Magic of the Walled City
Recently spent 5 nights in Cartagena and simply said it was magical. The city has a life of its own, and this apartment was perfectly located to enjoy all of it. It is close enough to walk into the main plazas of the city but far enough to be able to sleep at night. Speaking of sleeping the apartment comes with powerful AC for the living room and bedroom, you're gonna NEED that. The apartment was clean and located near two grocery stores, both a full size store and a mini mart that is open 24 hours for all your quick needs, also close to very charming park with plenty of food/drink options and if don't want to eat in the park, two blocks away from the park theres a amazing seafood spot for ceviche and across the street from that a steakhouse. The city is very very easy to navigate and this apartment is the perfect base of operations to start and end your daily adventures. Included in the apartment is a binder with a lot of useful and recommended locations to visit which is nice but the walled city is meant to be explored, so just get out there and see what you find, but owners and manager are more than willing to help you out. This location doesn't have rooftop access or lounge but the apartment is located close enough to walk to plenty of locations that offer that, and it is well worth visiting. Lastly, if you're a SCUBA diver or want to become one or just spend time on a beautiful island enjoying what the ocean has to offer, this apartment is located 3-5 minute walk from a dive shop, Diving Planet Cartagena, they are THE SHOP to use. If gonna be in Cartagena and need a safe spot to lay your head and use as a jump off point for an adventure you'll not soon forget, than look no further. Speaking of safe, this apartment does come with a hotel type safe in the master bedroom to store valuable or important items such as your passport, I can't recall if that is listed in the included features of the listing, but for me at least, it was a huge relief and peace of mind knowing that my passport was safe, even if the city is safe and the apartment is very secured, it was just the icing on the cake!
Thank you Alexander for the outstanding review! So happy that your experience was the icing on the cake.
I appreciate the effort you made to write such a thoughtful review and I hope you have the opportunity to return!
Three Night Stay in the Walled City
Following a 4-day trek at Cuidad Perdida, we needed hot showers, comfortable beds and air conditioning. Well, we found it in the Cartagena apartment. Benjamin, the apartment manager, was great, offering his help with anything we needed. The apartment is in a great location in the Walled City. Despite the street crowds, inside the apartment was quiet. We felt very safe and comfortable. We highly recommend Deb's place for your visit to Cartagena.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay! Benjamin is truly amazing and we are fortunate to be so centrally located. I hope you have the opportunity to come back sometime!
great, convenient apartment
The location of this apartment was great. We could walk everywhere. It was clean and had a wonderful balcony to take in the street life.
Thank you so much for the great review! The balcony and location are definitely two of the studio's greatest assets.
I am so happy that you had a wonderful stay and I hope you have the opportunity to come back!
Great location, very good condition and excellent manager
The apartment is nicely set up, clean with everything working well - the AC is strong and silent - the hot water is very much appreciated and all the lights etc work. The location is ideal for exploring, you are right in the heart of the old town. Expect some street noise during the day, vendors, lots of people walking and traffic - but at night it is quiet - no restaurants or clubs in the immediate vicinity. Benjamin the manager is very punctual and helpful - all in all a great choice.
Thank you, Phillip, for the generous and thoughtful review! I am so glad you appreciated the apartment amenities and especially our wonderful manager, Benjamin. We couldn't do it without him. Because we are right in the heart of the Old City, there will certainly be noise during the day. I am glad that it was quiet at night which is my experience as well.
The one bedroom is nice because the bedroom is located at the back of the apartment and away from the street.
Thanks again for the terrific review. I hope you come back!
It was just perfect: immaculate, the manager met me there precisely on time when I checked in, great convenient location, nice balcony to watch the passing scene. If I get back to Cartagena, I will definitely stay there again!
Thanks for the wonderful review, Scott! Benjamin is a fantastic manager and the balcony is one of the terrific amenities of both the one bedroom and studio apartments. Great for people watching!
I am looking forward to your return.
Noisy & Small!
First off I must say I stayed in the studio. I originally booked the 2 bedroom but due to scheduling conflicts Deb contacted and asked if I could change my dates. There were only 2 of us staying and I thought the studio would be sufficient. It is very, very small. A queen bed, one outdoor chair, two night stands. Very sparse. The street noise is constant from 6am-9pm. On top of that, this is a busy busy street with cars & locals that makes it is difficult to sleep. By day 3, I was ready to go somewhere else as I was trying to work and it was difficult to do in this loud confining space.
The other apts look much larger with the bedrooms to the back. I do take responsibility for allowing myself to being switched to the smaller apartment that made my visit less than great.
I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay in the Studio. It is our most booked apartment of the 3 and we have stayed there several times. Most of the shops open about 7:30 and close 6:30- 7:00. The local street noise does not bother us and we like the bustling location. If you return to Cartagena, you should stay in the one or two bedroom apartment. Both are much larger and have quiet bedrooms. You will sleep like a baby- 1 free night on us. Best, Deb
De drie appartementen zijn centraal gelegen in de historische ommuurde stad op loopafstand van alle bezienswaardigheden. De locatie is in de straat van de Universiteit van Cartagena en om de hoek van Plaza Fernandez de Madrid.
