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.

... we currently are. So far it has been amazing - it is Colombia's second biggest city but is much nicer than the capital Bogota. Here everything is much cleaner, there is a metro system and being in the valley of the surrounding mountains the temperature is perfect. There is an area called El poblado which is where we are staying with a huge area full of amazing restaurants and bars and it's just such a cool place to wander around. Yesterday we went on a free ...
... out and check in despite being in the same hostel, its still difficult to sort out so its easier to just wait around until each room is ready. So we jump online, suss out travel arrangements to Ecuador and hope the flights remain the same for a few days while we sort ourselves out before booking them. Flights and buses are roughly the same price from Bogota to Quito, so save doing overnight buses through southern Colombia, which is apparently quite an average safety area and also the ...
... Maybe that's faith!? It's hard to describe what the inside of the cathedral looked like. It was very dark with lights here and there illuminating areas. As you walk through it takes you through the events in the bible. But as a person who doesn't practice religion, it was really just a pretty fantastic view of what it's like in a salt mine. There were some beautiful sculptures donated by artists and some architectural symbolism made by the miners that I wouldn't have ...
... inequality of wealth remains a toxic cocktail.
I spent a few days in the city walking around the sites but it was not comfortable walking,traveling solo heightens your perceptions of crime and poverty and you tend to walk with eyes in the back of your head.I never felt at ease to take photos,always looking around to check I was out in the open with no one observing.At this stage of the trip,with my credit cards having been stolen in the pick pocket ...
... the only ones that seemed to be brave enough to tour in the middle of the day - the temperature pushing 40 degrees with over 80% humidity. It was however an amazing fortress used to protect attacks from land into Cartagena as the ocean side was protected from ships by the reef. I then explored more of the old town whilst Corrina had a break and we met up again to catch a slightly cloudy sunset. We were then off to the airport, leaving the heat of Cartagena for ...
