Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys.

Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This apartment was outstanding! Here are the main reasons you should stay here: 1) fantastic location; 2) beautiful interior and feels like home 3) great amenities; 4) excellent service; and 5) did I mention location?!?
INTERIOR and AMENITIES: My husband and I traveled with his sister and her husband. We stayed in apartment 303 and they were in the adjoining apartment 302. If you are traveling with others, it is great to have the adjoining apartments, however if not--the doors lock in between the rooms, and you cannot hear anything through the walls so they are great separate as well. Apartment 302 is slightly smaller than 303, but you still have a full bathroom, kitchenette, and balcony, as well as amazing stonework and storage in 302 (as well as 303). Both balconies have amazing views of the street below, and easy access to the rooftop terrace. It was very clean and had hot water (hard to find in Cartagena).
LOCATION: It is very easy to walk everywhere from this...

Management response:

Wow, thanks so much for the raving review -- it was fun helping you with your Colombia vacation! Thank you also for supporting La Vecina Foundation. Look forward to having you back!

About the neighbourhood
These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!

The building is on the corner of Calle Segunda de Badillo and Calle de la Moneda. The streets are lined with shops and a couple of small restaurants. Just at the other end of the Calle Segunda de Badillo is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes.

Churches, museums, the old city wall, a department store, the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop, the main University of Cartagena building, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here!
Getting around
Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!

If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4-5 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
