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.

... the majority of the hawkers is at the start of the beach, and the quieter areas and not as dodgy hostels are the further you walk, we set off down the beach for a few hundred metres before coming across the two hostels we saw reviews online about that seemed good, and are approached by a guy selling us a cabana 25m from the water edge and wanted 40000 peso a night at Hostel Any. Leesh climbs inside to have a look and it's just a mattress on the floor ...
... than traveling a few years ago. I remember that Randi and I used to have some pretty crazy adventures back in our day. I would go into the origins of some of the tales, but I would hate to defame my reputation on the internet. (Plus, I´m pretty sure both of our parents read this blog, so I´d rather they not hear about how we almost drowned attempting to swim a long ways to shore in Spain after a long night of revelry…) Yes, traveling as ...
Our guide picked us up at 8:30 am for a tour through the city in her car. No being shoe horned into a tiny van this time, we were going in style. Unfortunately, her idea of speaking English was only slightly better than my Spanish.
I'm constantly reminded of what passes for English in other parts of the world. But on we went with our half sort-of English and half spanish.
... The Spanish used Cartagena as a main port town for many many years (and I guess technically it still is) but because of it's easy access from sea it was pillaged and taken hostage many times and its riches in gold stolen. So to protect it the wall was built around the main city (hence my reference to the 'walled city') and this fort was built for protection. The fort itself is quite an impressive structure and from the top you can see most of the surrounding area. ...
... the gate to the Plaza de los Coches we were immediately pounced upon by street vendors - cigars, panama hats, Colombian football shirts. They must have been hiding from the rain yesterday. Even in the streets surrounding the plaza there were loads more vendors.
By late morning, the heat was getting intense so we hunted out the ice cream shop we walked past yesterday. Maria had a traditional ice cream in a cone, David went next door to the artisan shop ...
