“Warning! Do not stay here”
I am disappointed to have to leave this terrible review, but Lilliana left me no choice. After weeks of researching apartment rentals in Cartagena, I selected this apartment because it was a great location and had a washer/dryer, as I knew we would need to do laundry after traveling for a week with just a carry on. When we arrived at the apartment, we were disappointed. it was a dingy, there was a towel left on the floor in the bathroom and trash in the trash can. That we may have been able to overlook, but then we started looking for the washer/dryer and did not find it. After 20 minutes of trying to figure out the wifi password (The one she provided in the email and in the book in the apartment were incorrect), we pulled up the listing to confirm that it showed a washer dryer, I knew it had because that was important to me, but wanted to make sure before emailing liliana to cancel. I emailed her right away and she said there was a washer and dryer in the building that we could use, but she understood if we wanted to cancel and to let her know right away. She then had her daughter call me who spoke english to try to assist. I let her daughter know we were unhappy and that listing washer/dryer in the amenities was misleading and they should update the listing. She said she understood and also confirmed we could cancel. She also updated the listing to note that the washer and dryer was in the building. This is important because most people don't want to sit in a laundry room when they are on vacation, I had planned on letting the laundry run while we were exploring the city. We started to look for alternate places to stay immediately and booked one within 45 minutes of arriving at her place. It was twice the price of this apartment because the city was almost completely sold out. i contacted Trip Advisor to cancel and they said they understood and just needed to contact the owner. It's now been 4 days and Lillian refuses to return their calls or their emails regarding the situation, so my money is frozen. I have put in an official request to Flipkey to have her removed from the site. Any owner that is not willing to communicate when there is an issue should not be allowed to rent their place. I am confident I will get my money back, as I have proof that the listing was inaccurate and that she said it was okay to cancel. I just want to warn anyone looking to not book this apartment!!!
“Superb location and service in the heart of the historical town”
You are renting an appartment but it feels like a hotel with 24 hours concierge service. Very pleasan, clean and quiet and fully equiped. Very comfortable bed. The rooftop has a incredible 360 views of the city, try it on sunset! The pool on the ground floor is a good option for refreshing after a morning´s walk. Stay here and you won´t regret it.
“Calm, Modern, Safe”
The location is excellent, the building is safe and fully equipped. There is a swimming-pool, and a beautiful sight from the top of the building. The staff is always here (Carlos and Ruby).
Response from the owner Aurelien, te esperamos en tu próxima vista a Cartagena, fue muy grato tenerlos como huéspedes, gracias por tus comentarios.
“Very well located to do many things at a walking distance”
Being in the heart of the historic center, it is very convenient to hang around. Very nice restaurants at a walking distance. Easy with young kids. Very calm at night. Nice 360° view from the roof.
para quem se hospeda para passar 1 dia é uma excelente escolha, amplo quarto
Liliana was an amazing host, answered all our questions and took care of our every need. Awesome condo!
This is my second time staying at Liliana's apartment and I must say that none of the other places where I have stayed in Cartagena beats this one! It is wonderfully located right in the heart of the city, in front of a wonderful park (which is a major perk as there are no more than two other tree-shaded parks in the old city). It is also in the thick of things yet very quaint and relaxing. The place is exquisitely decorated, extremely clean, all the appliances work nicely, and the best of it is the quietness (after long day-walks among the wonderful crowds in this fantastic city it is always nice to kick back and relaxed in a quiet, cool apartment!).
Response from the owner Hi Rafa, was a pleasure to have a guest in the apartment, thanks for your comments, Liliana
“The best stay”
This apartment is amazing, peaceful, charming and very well situated near to the museum, restaurants, the designer shops, one of my favorite things was to sit in the roof terrace with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Very romantic!!! The apartment is very comfortable, you have everything you need if you want to stay and cook the marvelous vegetables, fish and seafood that you find in the local market. I really recommend this apartment.
Response from the owner Hi Virginia, was a pleasure to have a guest in the apartment, thanks for your comments, Liliana
“Charming apartment in a great location”
We stayed here for one week and loved every minute of it. Liliana and her nieces were very helpful and checked in on us once we arrived. The staff were friendly and the building is beautiful. Highlights: -High ceilings and beautiful tilework -located across from the Parque de Bolivar (a great place to enjoy an espresso in the morning) -close to Getsmani (so many delicious restaurants in this neighbourhood) -Fabulous rooftop patio (perfect for drinks at sunset) -comfortable bed I highly recommend staying here!
Response from the owner Hi Melissa was a pleasure to have a guest in the apartment, thanks for your comments, Liliana
“Great apartment, Great Location, Super Friendly and Helpful Owne”
This apartment is in a great location on Plaza Bolívar in the Centro area of Cartagena. From the apartment, its easy to walk around the entire Centro / Getsemaní area. There is great dining within easy walking distance, a very nicely stocked grocery store, which has most anything a traveller needs food and beverage-wise. The apartment is very comfortable with a/C, a workable little kitchen, wifi, TV and even a hammock! The staff at Edificio Bolívar were very friendly and helpful, even when we arrived at 12:15pm from a late flight. There is a rooftop deck ("mirador") on the 7th floor where you can watch the sunset, or just get used to the layout of Cartagena. There is a pool on the first floor which is a nice way to cool off after a long day of walking around steamy Cartagena. Liliana is very friendly, kind and caring. She took the time to email me and call the apartment after our first night, to ensure that everything was up to our expectations and that we were having a good time. Liliana gave me some great restaurant suggestions as well as some of her favorite tourist activities. We booked 3 nights but stayed a 4th because we liked it so much. Next time we are in Cartagena will will definitely be booking this apartment again. Keep up the good work Liliana, you are an amazing host ! Gracias por todos !
Response from the owner Thanks Matt for the comment hope you come back to Cartagena soon be waiting, Hopefully you had a very good trip back. Liliana
