We had the most lovely experience staying at Claudia's place in Cartagena! The apartment is very comfortable and in a really nice building with a great doorman who was very helpful in booking our bus to Santa Marta. You can't beat the location, right in the heart of the old city. We only wish we could have stayed longer, but are already planning to come back and stay again at Claudia's!
Positives - Central location. Right in the old city. Easy to walk around.
Negatives - Too small. Steps can be dangerous as people can fall down. I think some protection needs to be done both at the steps and in the bedroom. (More for safety).
Great location! We had a wonderful time staying in the heart of Cartagena. It was very easy to check in and out with the doormen and the pool/lounge areas are beautiful. Highly recommend!
This is a review for a different apartment of Claudia's in the same building, #405, where we actually ended up staying. It is a huge bright elegant apartment, stylishly and comfortable furnished. We were only two but the apartment could easily accommodate more. It has a great shower and quiet air conditioning and other amenities. Claudia was away but we were welcomed by the doorman and the maid Clarita and Claudia was available by phone and always helpful and reasonable.
Claudia was very responsive to inquiries and we had no problems with her apartment. Everything was clean, the wifi was good, the building is in a prime tourist destination. Would recommend.
The apartment was exactly how it has been described. It was clean, small, and convenient. The only negative was the noise coming from the street. There were street musicians, crowds of people, and the night club that stays open till 4 am on the weekends. Bring your earplugs or join the party. We loved the pool and balcony.
We have stayed only 2 nights at Claudia's apartment but wished we could have stayed more!
The apartment is pretty small for 4 persons but it is fully equipped and the location is great.
The pool and the terrace were really delightful. The doorman and the maid really nice and helpful.
