Kar Ta Hey Na Ya!

A travel blog entry by shawnbuckle


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..

A travel blog entry by lucywhitehead


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 …

... it's run down with tall hotel buildings being built (very slowly). The tall building across from our hotel was half painted but the unpainted side had damage to the cement indicating that it'd been sitting for a while. From our 5th floor balcony we could see empty lots filled with trash. Also, it didn't have a pool which for some reason we thought it did.
Despite our disappointment, it turned out fine - it had faster internet (though low signal), ...

Well that's one way to take a mud bath...

... as though I was standing to those peering down from outside the pit, which was deceiving to those just entering.

The mud was naturally heated by the sun and, seeing as we had come in the late afternoon, it began to get cold. After you exit the Volcano, you get a brief wash. Then, you are instructed to go to the lake at the bottom of the Volcano where locals await to help you rinse off. Trust me when I say that mud gets everywhere! All in all a very interesting experience.

Welcome to Cartagena, Colombia!

... and for good reason. Although Cartagena is a city with 1 million citizens, the old town and Getsemani (sounds like Get-some-money) are both small, walkable enclaves' rich in architecture, history and charm. And taxis.

We stayed in Getsemani, the ancient home to the slaves that worked for the elite living in the old city (via a drawbridge over a moat!) and still is a workman’s neighborhood. Next door to our little hotel was a workshop of sorts ...

    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.

    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



    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.


    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


    I traveled to Cartagena, Colombia in May 2006.

    Enchanting Cartagena,Colombia


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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.
