La Casona de Getsemani
Maintaining its colonial character throughout, the tropical colors, red-tiled floors, and exposed brick walls make the La Casona de Getsemani a cozy and inviting place to stay in Cartagena. The air-conditioned guest rooms are neatly decorated and equipped with private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, cable television, and ceiling fans. Some have balconies overlooking the streets of the lively Getsemani neighborhood, and all open onto a lovely Spanish-style courtyard, which is filled with palm trees and has an outdoor dining area with wrought iron furniture. The property also has a tour desk, and bike and car rental are offered as well as tours of Cartagena or excursions to the surrounding areas.

Ideally situated next to the famous old city and full of colonial-era architecture, Getsemani is outside the walled city of Cartagena and historically significant in its own right. The Palace of the Inquisition, San Pedro Claver Church, Governor's Palace, and other tourist sites are all within a 15-minute walk from the inn. The Bocagrande district with its shopping malls and popular beach is also a 15-minute walk away. The airport is 6.5 miles from the inn.
Food & Beverage
A breakfast buffet is served every morning in the leafy courtyard area, and guests can use the communal kitchen whenever they like. There are supermarkets and food stores within walking distance for guests who choose to take advantage of the kitchen. Getsemani offers a few small cafés and mid-range restaurants. The old city, just 15 minutes away on foot, houses numerous dining options for every palate and price range, along with an array of open-air bars and sidewalk cafés.
How To Get There
Take Carrera 1-Santander Avenue south from the airport, and turn left on 41st Street just before the walled city. After the Statue of the India Catalina, turn right on Lemaitre Street then left two blocks later on Carrera 10. The hostel is half a block down on the right-hand side.
