Kar Ta Hey Na Ya!

Cartagena was hot. It hovered around 36 degrees and was humid, oh so humid. It was also expensive given that it is the main tourist destination for both gringos and locals.

Cartagena reminded me of Dubrovnik in Croatia at times. Both had walled-in cities that attracted the masses, enabling business to charge a premium. The difference …

Crazy Colombian Caribbean Carnage Con Cuba Libre..

I had just reached the half way mark of my trip, two of my best mates, Tew and Tony, were coming to Colombia for their Easter Hols, I was a bit giddy with excitement and wanted to share a bit of Colombian love with them. You can imagine the results.... yep the combination lead to a couple of weeks of carnage, many cuba libres, more time lapping up …

Travel Day ....

A travel blog entry by rpdizy

Today was a travel day ...

The trip to Cartagena is quick -- just an hour or so flight -- but we had to round up everything from around the house, pack - weight balancing all suitcases and make sure we cleaned up around the Casa.

Julio picked us up (early again .. although not as early as showing up the day before, which he also did!!). Although we were there in plenty of time, there were really no line ups anywhere, including ...

... went to visit a mud volcano, weŽd seen some pictures and it looked quite strange, 5 of us went in the end, a few of which had good spanish so we decided to go indepentely using public transport, first getting a taxi ride, or a rally ride with the driver attempting gaps that just werent there. Then bought a bus ticket which we were told was a return ticket, and would later find out it wasnŽt. We got dropped off 1km away from the volcano, so walked again in the mid day sun, and ...

November 13, 2013

We started out our day similar to the last few but we figured that it was time to venture back to the Old Town once again this evening to do some more exploring. As we were roaming around aimlessly looking for a place to have dinner (apparently looking lost) one of the locals approached and asked us if we needed some help finding a place. He spoke almost perfect English ...

    Good option in walled city

    Casa La Fe was perfectly located with the walled area, but the rooms were pretty basic, especially for the price yet most hotels are pricey in the area. The service was great and they'll do a bag of laundry for no extea charge which is amazing. The breakfast is also good.

    Studio appartment

    The Sudio appartment connected to the hotel is awesome. Its great value for money especially if there's 3 of you. The balcony and the roof top pool are something special and the view of the old city can't be beaten. Its a bit hard for taxi drivers to find but apart from that I can't fault it and really recommend it for anyone looking for a luxuary studio apartment in Cartagena

    Historical Traveler Reviews Casa La Fe Cartagena

    Superb

    from

    Casa La Fe was perfect.--an authentic styled small, personally run hotel in the heart of walled Cartegena and directly across from a nice litle park (the name of which I cannot remember). With only 3 floors (plus gound floor) of rooms, the atmosphere was intimate and created fast and easy friendships. We had dinner and went dancing w/ 2 different couples (actually one couple from Brazil and a pair of friends from LA) on a few occassions.

    Casa la fe was perfect.

    from

    Everything about Casa La Fe, from the immaculate room to the excellent service and fresh breakfast was great. The location within the old walled city was great from which to explore on foot. Jeff, the owner, was full of helpful information and suggestions including assisting us getting up to Tayona. WeŽd recommend Casa La Fe to anyone travelling to Cartagena.

    Absolutely the best place to stay in Cartagena

    from

    I traveled to Cartagena, Colombia in May 2006.

    Enchanting Cartagena,Colombia

    from

    I just returned from Cartagena,and squashed the impression that people have of it as being a 'dangerous' place.The only thing that could be annoying is the relentless street vendors- other than that,it was a fantastic vacation destination.

    Can't beat the location

    from

    I'd highly recommend the Casa La Fe because of it's excellent location in the old town (Centro) and great B&B feel. The rooms are relatively modest, but very clean and they've done a good job modernizing the bathrooms.

    If you're planning to stay out late every night, then I wouldn't recommend one of the 1st floor rooms because the noise from breakfast will certainly wake you.

    Still, a much more authentic experience than one of the big hotels in Bocagrande...and more affordable.

    Very friendly staff, beautiful hotel

    from

    Casa La Fe is an old house that was lovingly rebuilt by its owners, Geoff and Carmen. They and their staff are so warm that when we walked back into Casa La Fe after a few days' side trip, we called out, "we're home!" We especially enjoyed the serene interior garden (where breakfast is served), the little rooftop pool, and free extras including wifi, loaner laptop, and loaner bicycles. There's no better way to see Cartagena's exquisite old quarters than cycling around in the morning, as the town wakes up.

    As a small, beautiful old hotel that is advertised only by word of mouth and the Web, Casa La Fe also seems to attract interesting people - we made some friends over breakfast.

    Beautiful hotel, friendly owners and great facilities

    from

    We recently spent a week in Cartagena. There are two distinct parts to the town - the city centre (centro) and the tourist area (Bocagrande). They are as visually different as Havana and Miami and travel between the two takes around 10 minutes by taxi. If you are looking for beaches and fast food choose an hotel in Bocagrande but if your passion is colonial architecture and atmosphere you will want to stay within the city walls. We stayed at Hotel Casa La Fe in the heart of the old town. This beautifully remodelled B&B exceeded our expectations and they had some neat conveniences- WiFi internet, global tel calls for 50c per minute and small-wheel commuter bikes for getting around town. They also had excellent security - each guest has a key to the main entrance door and nobody enters the hotel unless they are invited. Its owned and run by an English- Colombian couple so there are no language dificulties. Highly recommended.

    Best choice

    from

    Casa de la Fe is one of the best options to stay in Cartagena de Indias. The house is really beautiful and very well located in a nice place in the heart of city centre. The rooms are not very big but they are very comfortable with air conditioned and ceiling fan. The breakfast offered is also correct. The house offers Internet wifi in the common areas without any cost. The owners, Carmen and Geoff are very kind and friendly. The ratio quality/prize is very good. Highly advisible!

    Casa la Fe-ideal place to stay in the old city

    from

    At the risk of making it difficult to book another visit, I recommend Casa la Fe as the ideal place to stay if you want to experience the architecture, history, and beauty of Cartagena.
