I loved the layout of the house. It provided a tranquil place to relax close to the old town. Ricardo and everyone that works there were very warm and welcoming.

Overall, a very good experience. The location outside the old city is very desirable for those seeking a quiet neighborhood and easy access. The Marsol bus station is a short walk and the airport is 5 minutes away. The staff was very friendly and responsive, though only Ricardo really spoke English. We were offered the use of the kitchen to prepare lunches and dinners, which is a very nice option. The house is still a work in progress. The restoration seems to be ongoing, but there was no disruption while we were there. The room was spare and simple, but adequate. There was always hot water, which is not always the case in Colombia. The price is a little higher than some other neighborhoods outside the walls of El Centro, but there is really nothing quite like the location and privacy.

Ricardo's house is just as described, in a beautiful setting and welcoming. It is well-located, just steps outside the old-city walls, in a nice neighborhood. Our room was comfortable and pleasant. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Breakfast is simple but plentiful, with fresh fruit. We highly recommend Ricardo's house.

Ricardo's place is a relaxing oasis of quiet, shade, and classy decor that is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. Ricardo and his staff are fun and helpful. All this made for a great first stay in Colombia. Highly recommend.

Ricardo is an architect here in Medellin and the design of his immaculate house definitely reflects this. The three rooms are set around a beautiful, tranquil courtyard where his extremely accommodating staff serves you breakfast in the morning. The house is just across the street from the walled city and one block from the ocean. I'll definitely stay here again on future visits to Cartagena.
