Last nights brothel find seemed like a perfect solution to our accommodation problems . But the aroma that catches my nose at 4AM - one that can only be found in a room which has had countless timed romantic …
Cartagena's old city, El Centro, is the most beautiful town we have been to on this trip so far. Surrounded by walls, nearly 500 years old, the city is a maze of cobbled streets, leafy plazas and wide balconies, from which beautiful flowers tumble. The colonial architecture is all around, horse drawn carts pull tourists around the city and open air …

... jag hur min komfort-zon vart kvarlämnad någonstans i en källare på Chalmers. Dock är latinomusik otroligt dansvänligt, så efter någon kvart av hemlängtan gick det upp att jag antagligen aldrig kommer träffa detta folket igen. Så jag började dansa likt en idiot, som en gud! Äppleplockare, skrubba tvätten samt tjernobylbarn var toppen av repetoiren. Så efter 4 timmars intensivt kroppsviftande, showoff i cirkel samt en och ...

It's a beautiful place! All is decorated nicely, beautifully colored walls, hamocks and relaxing chairs along the pool.
It's hot here and you really need the swimming pool to cool down a bit. The water of the pool is nice to stay in int forever with maybe 27C whilst the air is well above 30C.
Aircondition in all rooms. TV + DVD player in the room (for a rainy day?). Nice common area with big table.
The hotel is located less than 10 min. walking to the historic center. Wow, what a great city! By far the most beautiful city we've seen in Colombia.
Breakfast is included: toast bread (unfortunately no French baguette as we hoped since the owner is French), crepes or eggs, fruit salad, ham, cheese, jam. Great that it is available until 11am.
It's a bit expensive (COP 140'000), but I believe it is worth it. It's certainly by far nicer here than in one of the big hotels.
