I stayed with Isabel for three nights. I found Isabel to really sweet person who was helpful in all ways. The home us ideally situated within easy walking distance from the old town, supermarket and restaurants are just a minute away and five or so minutes walk to a gym which Isabel found for me. The room was large and clean with a fan and airconditioning which was essential as it was hot, hot, hot!!. I used the kitchen regularly and took advantage of the large fridgerator..I highly recomnend Isabel's place

Our stay at Isabel's place was decent but as not as good as we expected. The check in process was very easy and welcoming. Isabel contacted a day prior to our arrival to assist with an easy check in process. We also met others that were staying in other rooms in the house. We had the room downstairs which we were okay with except for the fact that we did not get an wifi connection from the bedroom. We had to sit in the living room to receive wifi connection. Also, the shower in our bathroom did not have a shower head and there was only cold shower water- so our showers were very uncomfortable. We also noticed that the host would come into the room and clean and change linen while we were gone (which we were not aware of). It would have been nice for us to explicitly made aware of this before it happened. Isabel was very friendly and helpful with helping us find and book excursions and recommendations for places to visit during our stay. When out return flight was changed, Isabel was very open to giving us a later check out to accommodate for our change in travel plans. The house and area was very quiet. There were a lot of places within walking distance (super market, restaurants, etc.). Overall, our stay was pleasant but not as great as we thought it could have been. Would recommend if these changes are made so that future guests could have a more enjoyable stay.

Response from Isabel:
This is a surprise! It seems that your expectations do not correspond to reality or to your budget. It is the first time that a guest is annoyed that we clean their room. you were five days here, of course, we need to clean your room and change the sheets and towels. You should be grateful. From the beginning of the reservation it was obvious that you were annoyed by the difference of 50 cents ($ 0.50) on the exchange rate that airbnb gave you for the service. our advertisement does not offer hot water, cartagena has a 40 degree climate, I do not understand what you mean when you say taking a shower is unpleasant. maybe you need to go to a hostel where no one cleans the sand you bring from the beach and the bathroom is dirty for a week. You are lucky! It costs the same as coming here and have private bath, air conditioning and daily cleaning.

Amazing location, room was tidy and as described. Aircon worked fine. There was no shower head, only one pipe where the water as coming from, but this wasn't a major problem. Isabel wasn't there during our stay, and although the lady that looked after the place didn't speak any English, she was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this place.

Response from Isabel:
Our advert for this rate, the cheapest, does not offer shower with hot water, sorry. However, it is necessary to clarify that cartagena is a city at 40 degrees ambient temperature and the shower is normally at 28 degrees, I think for this Rate is a reasonable temperature

Isabel's place is in a residential neighborhood about ten minutes walking from the edge of getsemani and twenty five from the edge of the old city. The room is clean, although simple, and has wonderful air conditioning. Unfortunately we found that the wifi signal did not reach this room (Isabel says this is specifically an iPhone/iPad issue, and other phones and computers do fine).

Isobel's place is a great option if you want a comfortable place in a residential area around 20 minutes walk from the old city. It was ideal for me, because I was in Cartagena for a conference, and enjoyed the walk along the bay into the conference centre each morning. The room is large, the bed comfy and you have access to a great kitchen, lounge and dining area. There is a large supermarket around the corner, and a 24 hour market and 24 hour pharmacy just up the road towards the old city. Odd opportunity; a great, low cost, high quality dentist just up the road, if you want to get some dental work done!

Great place to stay in Cartagena. Though not in the old city, the Airbnb is in the neighboring district of Manga and a quick 20min walk or inexpensive cab to the heart of it all. The room was spacious with ensuite bathroom, and the AC was great to come back to after a day in the Cartagena heat and humidity. Isabel was a timely communicator and ensured everything went smoothly!
