It's hard to complain about the place given the price your paying. The only issues we had was with the shower overflowing onto the floors of the apartment because the drain seemed to be clogged. I messaged the host and nothing was done. The bathroom had a foul odor, smelled like urine. Also, the host tried to charge us money on spot after mentioned that we had an accident and needed new sheets. Their explanation was that they don't wash and reuse sheets if they've been soiled with bodily fluids (e.g. urine, vomit, semen, blood, etc.), so we needed to pay for new ones. Otherwise, the place was exactly as described. Only the bedroom has AC.

We had a great stay at Hortencia and Henrys apartment! They are lovely people and are always there to help you. The room itself is very nice and tidy - with a comfy bedroom including AC! We would definitely stay there again :-)

Like all other reviews, Henry and Hortencia are excellent hosts. They were available any time we needed them and gave us great advice on where to go and places to eat. The apartment was just enough and the AC in the bedroom was worth the stay. Cartagena was extremely hot during our stay and the AC was what we looked forward to at night; it's an excellent place!

Hortencia was great. She was waiting in the street when we arrived. She and Henry gave us a detailed introduction to Cartagena. We were in the city for our honeymoon. If you are a backpacker or just looking for a clean/convenient place to crash, this will suffice. If you are here for a honeymoon, something a bit more upscale is recommended. That said, everything was exactly as described and perfectly functional. A solid place to stay in cartagena.

Hortensia and Henri were great hosts, they gave us a lot of information about the city and were always available to answer our questions. They helped us booking a tour to the islands. The room was very nice. Thanks a lot!
