This is a beautifully remodeled Los Balcones 2nd floor studio in the heart of the Walled City.

Reviewed 9 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I had a lovely stay at Cathy's place in Cartagena! The studio itself had A/C and WiFi that worked perfectly. It was also fun to take in the city and people watch from the balcony (the first night we were able to see a wedding parade as well as fireworks!). The Old City is bustling though so you may want to bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

But I can assure you, the location is the best part! We were able to explore so much of Cartagena by foot and it felt as if the apartment was in the center of the Old City. It was definitely the perfect place to rest up, especially midday. Being that it was very hot in February, cooling off in the A/C was amazing!

Additionally, her host Benjamin was so helpful when I arrived, answered all my questions, and even arranged a day trip for my boyfriend and I! Cathy was also very helpful and responsive. I would highly recommend staying at her place!

Management response:

Thank you so much, Erica, for the fantastic review! The location is definitely one of the best amenities of Los Balcones. And I can't forget Benjamin. Everyone just loves him. He is absolutely the greatest manager. Thanks again and please come back!

About the neighbourhood
Located in the vibrant San Diego neighborhood, 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.
Calle Segunda de Badillo 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.
Catch a romantic horse drawn carriage to take you back to the apartment at night.
Getting around
It is not necessary nor recommended to have a car in the Walled City!
Walking is definitely the way to explore the area. Everything within the walled city and even beyond can be explored on foot.
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.

How to get there
Airport: Rafael Nunez International: 3.0 km
Take taxi to Calle Segunda de Badillo 36-12
The airport is located 3 km north-east of the old city. At the airport you can find several ATMs and an exchange bureau where you can change cash and traveler's checks. To get downtown, go to the taxi stand which will give you a receipt with the exact amount you'll have to pay to the driver, around $10-12,000 depending on your destination (2015 rate). To get into town more cheaply, walk about 50 m (150 ft) to the street and hail one of yellow cabs. You should be able to get a cab to take you into town for about $6,000.
