Cartagena is a blast during New Year's! Make your reservations now! This beautifully remodeled 2nd floor studio apartment is in the heart of the Walled City! The balcony is a great perch that allows you to enjoy the typically bustling Cartagena street below. Have a beverage and people watch to your heart's content! The studio is one of 3 apartments (studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom), all located on the 2nd floor above a clothing shop. Upon entering the building a stairway leads to a common hallway. Each apartment has its own secure door from this hallway. The unit is perfect for one or 2 persons. The bed has a new firm and very comfortable mattress. An energy efficient mini split provides generous relief on hot days. The mini kitchenette is equipped with a mini refrigerator, microwave, toa...Cartagena is a blast during New Year's!

Each apartment has its own secure door from this hallway. The unit is perfect for one or 2 persons. The bed has a new firm and very comfortable mattress. An energy efficient mini split provides generous relief on hot days. The mini kitchenette is equipped with a mini refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker and large electric skillet. Silverware, cups, plates and bowls are also provided. Other amenities include a large ceiling fan, cable tv, wireless internet access, tile throughout, wardrobe, a safe for valuables and of course the balcony! The bathroom is beautiful and modern. We even have hot water which is not normally available everywhere in Cartagena. In the hallway that accesses each apartment is a a cabinet which holds beach towels, extra soaps, extra toilet paper, extra pillows, and some tourist books and maps. Items available to guests will be stored on the left side of the cabinet. Yasmina, our caretaker, will be available to do laundry for guests at a charge of 10,000 pesos per load. (She will use a laundry bag labeled for each apartment making it hard to lose any of your laundry.) No laundry service on Sunday. Calle de la Moneda is typically busy and crowded during the day, but very tranquil and peaceful at night, as there are no bars and restaurants lining our street. The city of Cartagena is simply a delight best experienced on foot. My recommendation is to wander, get lost (you really can't within the walls), and take in the wonderfully alive Caribbean atmosphere. Everything you need or desire is within short walking distance of your apartment. A large supermarket, Exito, is just around the corner from the apartment. The iconic ambassador of Colombian coffee, Juan Valdez, now adds his name to a chain of Juan Valdez Cafes, one of which is located just a block away. Beautiful colonial buildings and plazas, cafes, pastry shops, terrific restaurants and bars, museums, the wall itself and the fort - All are within walking distance of your apartment. It is not necessary, nor is it recommended to have your own car in the Walled City! Walking is definitely the way to explore the area. Taxis abound and are very economical. Be sure to negotiate. You should be able to get around the walled city and surroundings for about 5000 pesos during the day and 6000 pesos at night. Or you might want to catch a romantic horse drawn carriage to take you back to the apartment at night. Benjamin, our delightful, inimitable and ebullient manager, will be on hand to assist you with any and all of your needs. He does not live on the property, but is always accessible. He knows Cartagena like the back of his hand. Note: For arrival after 10pm, guests must pay Benjamin $25 for late night arrival. More

Amazing little apartment in the heart of the old city. Well appointed and cozy. Balcony looked over the pretty street below which was perfect for sipping cocktails in the evening or a hot cuppa in the morning. People watching is a must!!! I'd go again...More

Thank you Joan! A balcony in the center of Old Cartagena is such an incredible amenity. I hope you have the opportunity to come back.

About the neighbourhood
San Diego is vibrant and lively during the day, but peaceful at night as there are no bars or restaurants around. This is perfect. People watch from your balcony during the day, and get plenty of tranquility at night. There is abundant shopping to be had in any direction from the apartment. An Exito supermarket is just around the corner and great restaurants, pastry shops and cafes abound in the area. Have some great street food while you're at it. The fruit and juices are exceptional. People are kind and friendly-with that wonderful easy going Caribbean island style. It's an incredible place. I love it!
Getting around
No doubt - the absolute best way to see the old Walled City of Cartagena is on foot. Everything in the old city is within walking distance. Taxis are also a convenient way to travel in the old city and surroundings. Be sure to negotiate your fare as you get in the taxi. Taxi fares are set by zone. You should be able to go most places in and around the old city and Bocagrande, Manga, Castillo San Felipe, etc. for 6,000 pesos during the day and 7,000 pesos or so at night.
