The Space

WARNING: Published price is for just 1 of the 4 bedrooms. The fee includes breakfast and house employees at your service 24H 7/7.

"Two hundred year old walls against scarlet, modernist furniture and floral hand-made tiles that vie with the Caribbean sunshine to offer some colour to hedonists escaping the grey.

This intimate four-room bolthole is just a short hop to Café Havana, the salsa club that has turned the 'lively' part of Cartagena's old town, Getsemani, from no-go to must-go in recent years." (quoted from Wallpaper Magazine)

Administrator Patrick will give you tips for hidden gems and may also give you a guided tour through the unique historical city center of Cartagena.

Wifi is of course available as also a enormous pool and sunny roof top terrace for sunbathing meanwhile you enjoy the soundsystem installed in the common area.

  • We stayed for a week at the end of August with another couple. We had the place to ourselves most of the time. Rooms were cool and clean. My only complaint was the lighting in the bathroom was way to dark. Everything looks exactly like the pictures. The pool was perfect. Breakfast was delicious. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect!

  • Beautiful building, modern design. Bright spacious and cool rooms. (Needed when in Cartagena) and a great dining space to work in. I had the place to myself so it was as though I was wondering through a movie set. Truly a great experience and well located in down town Getsemani.

  • The space was amazing! My husband and I were the only ones staying there at the time so we had the whole place to ourselves. We loved the pool in the courtyard, the spacious bedroom with beautiful brick exposure, and the delicious arepas for breakfast. The fact that it was a stone's throw away from Havana Cafe was also great! We didn't get to meet Pat but he was responsive to emails.

  • We loved the colonial-meets-modern design of this place! The unique layout, architecture, and furnishings make for an awesome place to stay during a trip to Cartagena. Our stay here was one of the highlights to our entire Colombia vacation. The location is really convenient, as everything in the old city is walkable. The proximity to some clubs can make for a noisy night, so if you are a light sleeper you should either bring ear plugs or just stay at the club and keep dancing until they turn the music off.

    The pool is great for cooling off from the oppressive mid-day heat, and the ability to play your own music in the pool area is a nice feature. The staff was very friendly and fairly well versed in what's expected in an upscale B&B - but if you don't speak Spanish it might be tough to communicate. No problems making the booking in English, though. We had them make us a ceviche lunch with all the side dishes, which we read about in other reviews. It was probably the best meal we had during our entire trip.

    My only minor critique would be that the property is showing a bit of wear and does not appear to be maintained with the same standard as the original refurbishment a few years ago. Not to say it is shabby by any means, but a bit more attention to detail (especially on the modern elements) would go a long way.

    I would definitely come here again if visiting Cartagena. We came as a couple, but I think it would also be lots of fun to come here with a small group and rent out the entire place.

  • Great place in Getsemaní and good value overall. A pool, like the one in this house, makes the difference in very hot Cartagena. Logistics were easy and painless. Henry, Beatriz and the rest of the staff run the house very well and cater to all your needs. Be sure to ask Beatriz to prepare her ceviche, it is quite fantastic.
