Situated in Gelsemani, closed to the historic center and lively district, Les Lézards are a very good place to be. Cheerfull team, each room has a personalised and nice décoration. I recomand the one with little private Terrace.Marcus, the owner is the best host I met !

“A very pleasant stay in an authentic neighbourhood”
Reviewed 26 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Les Lezards is located in Getsemaní, a neighbourhood that is part of the old town, and next to the walled city. The neighbourhood has seen a reinassence since my last visit a few years ago. Whilst it host more tourist accommodation and the clusters of bars and clubs, it still retains the character of a traditional neighbourhood, with local families in their houses, often with wide open doors.
Les Lezards is a traditional house, nicely refurbished, and a great base to experience Cartagena.

“Beautiful house, great location, lovely people”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Marcus, the owner, had done up an old house in the great quarter of Getsemani. The attention to detail is wonderful with beautiful materials, and artefacts from his travels decorating the rooms. The three bedrooms my friends and I stayed in were all lovely, often with courtyards just outside, beautiful bathrooms, comfortable beds, and great air-con. One room was up a very sweet spiral staircase. The breakfasts, which are included, were wonderful. Marcus couldn't be more helpful. I, personally, would always prefer to stay in Getsemani rather than the historic centre (which is an easy walk away), there are locals in the squares and much better bars! It was a wonderful stay.

“Cozy Bed and Breakfast with amazing family hospitality.”

I had a late arrival to this B&B and despite my exhaustion and annoyance from the late night commute, Marcus' exceptionally warm welcome and hospitality was the highlight of my evening. He gave us the full tour, which surpassed my expectations of what I thought the ammenities would include. Great location as well with tons of mom and pop food options and bars in the surrounding area.

In my 10 day stay in Colombia, I had my best night of sleep at this B&B since the bed and linen were amazingly comfy and of high quality.

I woke up to fresh squeezed passion fruit juice, coffeee, fresh fruit and the best egg scramble. Their free roaming pet turtle was a nice touch to my morning as well.

If i come back to Caratenga HANDS DOWN..I will be returning for a longer stay.

Thanks Marcus!!
