The Space

If you don´t have big budget but still want to have a comfortable holiday, this studio is ideal for you.
One living space, with double bed plus a sofa-bed, an american kitchen and bathroom with shower. The whole apartment was latety renewed. All basic amenities you might need, fridge, cook, microwave, coffee machine, tv, cable, air conditioner, hair dryer.

In the building you will find a paid internet cafe, paid laundry service and grocery store. It also has a swimming pool.

Located in the neighborhood EL LAGUITO. Good location, safe, next to the hilton hotel, just 30 meters to the beach. taxis are right in front the building.
It takes 10 minutes to the city center in taxi, if you want to try the buses also very easy to get from there!

Enjoy your stay in Cartagena de Indias!

  • Overall, it was a good stay, but I think some of the other points that have been brought up are true. The sheets were nasty. Definitely ask for new ones. There was no coffee maker and the plugin stove top did not heat hot enough to properly make some of what my girlfriend prepares for breakfast. The cleanliness could have been better. The view was nice and the value was there. I have stayed in Cartagena 6 times now and have always rented something a little more expensive. So, I cannot compare it to the same value. I think if wifi, an iron for clothes, coffee maker, new plugin stove top, newer tv, new sheets and a deep clean of the bathroom this place would be great and they could ask for a little more.

    The location was great! If you are really looking for a budget place, I would recommend. But, if you are looking for something a little nicer you will need to look elsewhere.

  • The studio was very cozy and comfortable. Having a refrigerator and cook top/micro was very nice. Natalia was very quick to respond and helpful throughout the process.

  • The place was cute, next to the ocean. The people were friendly and helpful. I liked that they had security constantly there checking the people coming in and out. Natalia responded quickly and was very friendly as well. It was not bad for the price that we paid. What I would recommend is that you ask for clean sheets. The sheets smelled a bit moldy and by the end of the trip my fiance and I developed a slight rash. It went away when we came back home but the place was not that clean. Also, the bed was horrible. The springs were hitting our backs when we tried to sleep. Overall i had an ok experience. But next time i would pay a bit more to sleep better.

  • My partner and I stayed at Natalia's apartment for four nights ...this place is perfect if your not particularly fussy great location, clean and had a nice view .... However I experienced the same scenarios as others have mentioned in there reviews... Not a deal breaker by any means in my opinion ... We had a great experience

    Sorry bout the late review :)

  • En general, el flat estuvo bien, aunque hubieron algunos detalles que sería deseable que tuvieran en cuenta para una mejor experiencia. El aire acondicionado no funcionaba del todo bien, aunque si enfriaba pero no tanto como se esperaría de un aire acondicionado en buenas condiciones. También tenia un extraño traquido mas o menos cada hora y gotereaba hacia el interior del apartamento, así que había que tener a mano la trapeadora para evitar que se encharcara. También había un ventilador que no le funcionaban los controles (ni siquiera el de prendido y apagado, había que conectarlo al toma de energía para prenderlo y desconectarlo para apagarlo), y solo tenia una velocidad: baja, por lo que casi no ventilaba, de verdad hizo falta en las noches calurosas de Cartagena. Algunas cosas estaban algo descuidadas, como las papeleras de el baño y la cocina. Las tijeras de la cocina estaban oxidadas y no se veían muy agradables. Una manito de pintura le vendría bien al apartamento. El edificio es muy grande, por fuera es bonito, aunque por dentro está algo descuidado, especialmente la zona de las piscinas, que estaba horrible, había un ascensor por donde bajan y suben los bañistas y estaba todo oxidado, sus puertas lucían como si hubiese sido pintado hace 15 años. La zona de piscinas estaba muy sucia y las paredes estaban muy feas, deterioradas y sucias. Parece que nadie se ocupaba de barrer por lo menos. De otro lado, El flat esta muy bien ubicado, en un punto bonito y seguro, muy cerca de Bocagrande y a pocas cuadras de la playa. Natalia Vargas fue muy amable. El flat fue en general agradable y estuvo limpio cuando llegamos, Los muebles eran bonitos (excepto el comedor que estaba un poquito deteriorado) y la nevera estaba muy bien.El baño era agradable.

  • La ciudad histórica es hermosa, con muchas plazas y museos para recorrer; se puede hacer perfectamente a pie o en bicicleta. La ciudad "moderna" con negocios y restaurantes funciona desde el mediodía, el transporte público de buses tiene buena frecuencia y la ventaja de detenerse en el lugar que el pasajero quiere subir o bajar.
    El Apto en el que estuvimos fue funcional a lo que buscamos, frente a la playa, con seguridad las 24 hs (el edificio era muy grande y con mucha gente circulando).
    Lo menos agradable fue tener que "regatear" prácticamente todo lo que compramos, ya que en general por ser turistas nos han querido cobrar precios superiores al costo real.

  • Great value appartment, cheap and cheerful. Pool wasn´t in working order when we first arrived but we did use it later in the week. Cutlery, crockery etc could have done with a decent wash before we arrived, but rest of appartment was clean. Good location near the beaches and Bocagrande strip with restaurants and shops.

  • I didn't' meet Natalia but she was very responsive and gave great instructions/guidance. The studio was a great value located in a comfortable residential area (El Laguito). Only $3-4 taxi to Walled City or City Center. Air Conditioning worked well which is important in Cartagena. No hot water but that seems to be normal in Cartagena and it's easy to get used to. El Muelle (restaurant/bar) is only blocks away and a great place for drinks and to enjoy the sun overlooking the water but not on the busy beach where you are likely to get harassed by vendors. I would definitely consider staying here again when I make it back to Cartagena.
