TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Lee Cartagena
Cartagena hotels are very pricey during Christmas and the New Year, but the Hotel Lee represented fair value. Less than a five minute walk to the old town, it's close to all the action, but also quiet enough for a good sleep. It's in a part of Getsemani undergoing gentrification, with boutique shops and nice restaurants sprouting up just outside the hotel's doors. Will probably be a very upscale street in a few years.
The hotel was always kept spotless, and the rooftop lounge/pool was great to cool off in the afternoon. The staff was phenomenal, especially the manager, Luis. He went above and beyond answering our questions, and helping us book tours and private transport to Santa Marta. Upon arrival there, we realized we had left behind a pair of sandals - no problem, as Luis not only quickly located them, but couriered them to our final stop in Bogota. Would definitely recommend this place and also return in the future.

... Yes!!!! I was in salsa Heaven for real!!! Afterwards, Farrah and Carlos sat with us at our table. We chatted and drank for a bit then called it a night. They were really cool and it fun hanging out with people actually from Colombia. Since Tiff left 2 days before me, I ended up spending the rest of my time with them. Farrah took me to her family house waaaay outside of the city. I must say I was very nervous but I loved the adventure. The taxi rode ...
... had booked a dorm yes, but there was no specification about the number of beds . . . . unfortunately for us all we could afford within the old city was 2 bunks in a 12 bed dormitory . . . Yes ten other people! The air con was meant to be on for twelve hours during the night, but was regularly turned on late and off early. The late night drunken stumbling of room mates and early fumblings of other roommates did not make for a relaxing ...
... of any invasions to the city by land or sea, the massiveness of this military construction was built by the Spaniards in the 16th century during the colonial times to protect the city against pirates! Its dominating presence was something worth taking pictures of.

... their Miss Columbia. The street were full of tents, bandstands etc. tomorrow is the big parade and the party really gets going then. We returned to the ship and sailed away from Cartegena just after 1:30 pm. I love watching the sail away as it is fascinating to see how these big mammoth ships get themselves turned around and back out to sea. We spent a few hours up on the deck and then it was time for shower, supper and the evenings entertainment. Tonite ...
