“Wonderful, cozy place that makes one feel at home immediately.”
I wanted to spend only 3 days but ended up staying a week because of the warm atmosphere of Les Lezards where one actually meets the fellow guests at breakfast which is very good. Marcus, the owner, as well as his employees are utterly helpful and friendly and make one feel welcome. The location is also excellent and only a short walk away from the old town, the center. There is quite a bit to see in this historic city filled with many stories. Loved it there. Ursula Borck
“You should stay here, it was a wonderful experience :-)”
I chose this bed and breakfast because of all the wonderful reviews and everyone was right. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The daily breakfast was muy delicioso and helps you get started for your daily tourist activities. Location of the bed and breakfast was great, it is close to Centro where a great deal of museums and restaurants are located. Also it is also near Plaza Trinidad where people hang out every night and all the other local spots. Marcus was very helpful and gave excellent advice of where to go and the restaurants he recommended were great. The ladies who work at the house are also very friendly and pleasant. Visiting Cartagena was great and having a worry free place to stay at made the vacation even better.
“Cozy & typical, like a small museum :)”
Do you know that home feeling? When you feel like your part of the house, that special energy of love and care, plus an air or exotic and style. This combination is difficult to find in a guest house. We found there a small family: Marcus that was restless to answer all my questions, made sure that we are accommodated in the right room and we have all we need; among with his two sons; two friendly ladies that will cook delicious breakfasts, keep the place very clean, or even do your laundry! All the rooms have different design with creative details that makes you say: I would like to paint my windows like that in my own house! :) Tip: We loved the open roof shower, ask if that room is available ;)
“Best Place In Cartagena”
I travel and book all over the place. Everyone knows people and service make the difference! Marcus the owner made everything super easy and very comfortable. He is organized and efficient. I researched and checked against the big chains as well...Hilton, Hampton etc... Glad we chose to stay here, you will be too. ~ Two Thumbs Up!! ~
“A Warm Home, A Great Location”
I was recommended to stay at Les Lezards by a close friend. She said it was beautiful, peaceful, perfectly located, and Marcus, the owner, treated everyone who entered like an old friend. When entering through a small unmarked door near the heart of Getsemani, this hip, happening and upcoming neighbourhood, you walk in a white lush cool courtyard. Clean, bright rooms welcome you back after a long day on one's feet and a plunge pool on the roof in which to sip champagne (byob). I recommend Les Lezards to those who want to stay in a truly wonderful home and leave what is quite a mad city, completely relaxed.
“What a great time!”
The place is clean, located in a nice area and the staff is beyond hospitable! Marcus and his staff were extremely friendly, very helpful when I had questions about the area and overall a pleasure to deal with. He was very responsive when I had questions prior to booking. The place is clean, modern amenities and still feels like part of the old city. I am very happy with my decision to rent from Marcus. I look forward to my return visit!
“Excellent host and staff take very good care of all your needs”
This little guesthouse is situated very conveniently for access to the old town and all the historic buildings and great restaurants. The rooms are spotless with lovely linen and towels and are cleaned each day. Air conditioning, hot water, wifi, breakfast cooked to order, nicest staff, friendly tortoises, superb host - we loved it. We arrived too early for booking in and Marcus accommodated us and got us into our rooms as soon as possible. Then we needed to check out late as we had an evening flight. Again, despite being busy, Marcus kept us a room (and there were 8 of us!) so we could have the day in Cartagena and be able to shower and change before leaving. Included in the cost of the room is collecting travellers from the airport on arrival. We were already in Cartagena so they arranged to take all of us and our extensive luggage back to the airport for our departing flight. Nothing was too much trouble. Marcus will advise on places to eat, sites to see and provides maps wiTh directions. The guesthouse is small but is all that is needed for a city break - somewhere safe, clean, cool, convenient, friendly, with good facilities. Would recommend highly and would stay there again.
Marcus is a gracious host, and his house is beautiful and perfectly located. We could not have had a better experience in Cartagena and can't wait to return! I've stayed in Cartagena before, but this was by far the best experience.
“Not just a place to stay; part of the experience of visiting Car”
Marcus is creating a special oasis atmosphere at his getaway "house" in the heart of Cartagena. He started with a great location, outside the Centro area, but within short walking distance of everything. A photographer by trade, he is combining his artistic eye with an obvious passion for design and aesthetic. Each room has its own theme, details of which are evident in the styles, colors, and decorations. We stayed in the "Mexican" room the first three nights, then got to experience the "African" room when we cancelled reservations at the last apartment we had booked soas to spend an extra three nights at Marcus'. Being in the room felt like a sanctuary, relaxing and quiet, removed from the bustle on Cartagena's streets. There are also a couple of common spaces at the guesthouse. We were spoiled each morning by Manuela as she cooked us a filling breakfast of bacon and eggs, along with fresh fruit and smoothie's made from local tropical varieties. We made friends with other guests and spent time exploring the city with them, something that rarely happens in a hotel environment. Marcus himself is a rolodex of information on the city and surrounding areas. Simply by spending the time to point out things of interest and places to eat around town, he added immense value, arranging for taxi's and providing maps of the area as well. He is also building a sustainable business from the bigger picture standpoint, buying supplies used at the guesthouse from local stores and thus enhancing the community. He is providing steady employment to his personel and treats them well. He lives at the house along with his two teenage sons, making himself available to his guests. Seeing him teaching his 17 year old the different aspects of the business, and watching his attention to detail as he personally works on the latest room renovation, is part of what makes his place special.
“The best of Cartagena!”
I stayed with four friends at Les Lezards in Cartagena. Pleasing five ladies is no small feat, yet each one of us was thrilled with his beautiful B&B;, and not least, Marcus himself. The rooms were beautiful, as was the shared space, and I could easily have enjoyed a day simply relaxing with a book at the B&B;, and enjoying the hospitality of Marcus, Epi and Manuela. If you are going to Cartagena, Les Lezards is perfectly situated - close to the action without being right in it. The square near the house has local entertainment nightly, and gives you a little flavor of Cartagena life.
