"This is the place to stay!"
We had a wonderful stay at Les Lezards, in every way. The room and common spaces were comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. The service was EXCELLENT - Marcus took the time to orient us to Cartagena our first night there, Kelly was always on top of things and also just a generally lovely person, and the women who prepared breakfast and tidied our […] room were wonderful at their jobs. The extra courtesy of picking us up from the airport was welcome and unexpected. Overall, we couldn't have had a better time. Highest recommendation! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"pictures look better online - narrow and cramped"
pros: the staff is very pleasing and courteous. the owner has fantastic recommendations of things to do in cartagena cons: the pictures online are deceiving. the space is very narrow and cramped. small rooms with no venting/windows/air circulation. no central space (beyond breakfast tables) to relax. hot tub (it's not a pool!) is tiny, and looked a […] bit dirty Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a very pleasant stay for our last few nights in Colombia. The staff was very nice and friendly. Marcus, the owner, was very nice and very helpful. He took the time to sit down with us and show us the good places to eat/drink in the city and also booked us a car for a tour that we wanted to do. Room was very clean and peaceful, and the hotel […] is located on a quiet street. There is a Jacuzzi on the roof and a small area to get some sunbathing in. It is within walking distance to all the good spots in Cartegena. Also, bonus points for the turtles that cruise around the downstairs area! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It's like staying at home"
I stayed at this hotel for four days with my husband, the staff treated us like family. Marcus the owner is very friendly and pleasant person, he told us what things were good to do in Cartagena. Their breakfast is amazing, they serve big breakfast with delicious fresh natural juices which we love. This hostel is located in the center of the city and […] is surrounded by lots of nice restaurants and bars. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Boutique bed and breakfast in Cartagena"
A small and intimate bed and breakfast in area of Cartagena that is undergoing a revitalization .. You will see beautiful restored houses right beside others that need some TLC .. It shows the potential of the area but also the current conditions of some of the houses ... it is a true representation of the area ... It is what it Is ... The area reminds […] me almost exactly of Camuguay Cuba.. Spend some time at Trinidad square having a drink and people watching in the evening ...very interesting and real not like the homogeneous chain hotels some people spend their holidays at !!!

"Fantastic B& B - great location"
Stayed with 2 friends in a comfortable triple room option (one double one single bed). Getsemani is the perfect location to wander around Cartegena, just a short stroll into the old town - great night life locally as well. Staff are really friendly, limited English, and the B&B has adorable (and again really friendly) resident turtles too! Not a bad […] word to say! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Les Lezards - Great Hideaway"

"Great place to experience Cartagena!!"
Owner (Marcus) & his lovely staff could not have been more helpful. They really made our stay in Cartagena meaningful. Everything sparkles with cleanliness. The attention to detail & tasteful & colourful decorating bring out the true flavor of Cartagena providing a great place to relax after a day of sight seeing. Two thumbs up!!Genuine Expedia guest review
My only disappointment was that, despite the Expedia description of the rooms available, there was no TV available at all and none of the rooms had a TV set. I had booked my room mainly for this feature. I was advised by the attendant that she would speak to a person, who I took to be the manager. But, nothing came of it. Notwithstanding this issue, […] there was very good wifi. As well, the breakfast offered was very good and the attendant was pleasant. Overall, however, because of the misleading room description and the failure to follow up on the TV service, I would not recommend this bed and breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ótima estadia em Getsemani"
Muito bom hotel, simpático e bem localizado. Café da manhã personalizado, funcionários atenciosos e profissionais (as três moças, o pintor, Luis, Marcos, todos perfeitos, fui muito bem tratado! No apartamento, um verdadeiro tesouro em livros, revistas, dvds, cds, tanto que até falta um pouco de espaço para a bagagem do hóspede! Destaque para o box do […] chuveiro, protegido pelas árvores e ouvindo o canto dos pássaros. Ah, se um dia eu abrir um hotel, convido Luis para gerente! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

En este viaje tuve la oportunidad de quedarme en 3 posadas, de las tres la mejor es Les Lezards!! es un sitio magico, me sorprendió desde la arquitectura del sitio, hasta el trato del personal de servicio, lo recomiendo en esta vida y la otra.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nada a falar de negativo do hotel. Proprietário Marcus muito solícito, todos os funcionários sempre sorridentes e dispostos a ajudar, localização muito boa, próximo ao centro e aos principais pontos turísticos da cidade. Não precisa de taxi, da pra fazer tudo andando. Excelente e 100% recomendado. Quartos limpos e cheirosos e ar condicionado super […] agradável. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Marcos el dueño fue muy amable, fue nuestro guía, atención personalizada, barrio típico y seguro. Pintoresco, a pocos metros del centro histórico!Genuine Expedia guest review
Realmente todo fue excelente!!! No queríamos irnos de la casa de Marcus! Manuela y Epi nos prepararon unos desayunos riquísimos! La casona es divina, repleta de detalles de muy buen gusto e ingenio, todo invita a disfrutar! Las terrazas, los patios, las habitaciones todo muy muy lindo! Nos sentimos como en casa. Marcus, Manuela y Epi siempre nos ayudaron […] en todo, ya sea en orientarnos en paseos por la ciudad , para trasladarnos a otras localidades y hasta para organizar paseos en la zona del Tayrona.

"Best B&B ever!"
We loved the place! It is cozy, beautiful & very clean. The details and the decoration, both in the room and in the rest of the place are beautiful. The service was great. Marcus, the owner, is always ready for answering all your questions, he is always willing to help you with anything at any time. And the two other women working there are the same.

"My only choice when staying in Cartagena "
04/15/15 Adianice F
My friend and I were warmly welcomed by Luis.. He gave us a detailed description of what Cartagena had to offer from restaurants to bars and tours. He was able give us the history of the city and a brief idea of what each area of the city was called and what to expect. We also met Marco the owner who was very friendly and quite the gentleman. Breakfast is delicious! Everything is freshly prepared and just a perfect way to start the day. The room was close the entrance .. It had all the amenities if not more than some hotels .. Great amount of space and just added to the amazing experience we had in Cartagena. We will definitely be coming back and this will be my choice of stay every time I come to this city.
"Best host ever! Beautiful house and delicious meals near the old city."
04/12/15 Yara E
I stayed at Les Lezards with my boyfriend recently. I never expected to get such an amazing host and stay in such a beautiful colonial house right by the old city ( amazing location) Photos don´t do justice to this beautiful place. Our room was immaculate. Marcus designs and decorates every room differently and he´s got an exquisite taste! As a host, we couldn´t thank him enough! He literally made a tour for us and suggested great places to visit every day. This local knowledge is priceless when you don´t know the area and don´t want to only go to the touristy places. He suggested us amazing restaurants and plans to do every day and night! He really got out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. As an example: He replaced our plasma TV for a brand new one, during our one week stay because the one we had wasn´t working properly. Also, there was a night we went out for a few drinks with my boyfriend to a great bar that of course, he recommended, and I accidentally left my iphone at the bar and had to fly back home the next day - Marcus, took care of it! Even after we had left his place, he went to the bar the next day and picked up my I-phone and shipped it to me the following week! I really cant thank him enough for his amazing hospitality, recommendations and wonderful taste. I recommend him and his place to everyone I know that wants to visit Colombia and Cartagena. It was my boyfriends first time in Colombia and he was blown away by Les Lezards and Marcus hospitality Thank you! and will definitely stay there everytime i visit Cartagena

Les Lezards is located in a picturesque neighborhood in the old city, a short walk from the most visited/touristy part of the old city. The plants, architecture, and paint are wonderful and you never know if you are inside or outside. Les Lezards has all of the modern conveineices (3 WIFI routers, great AC, large TVs with all of the channels, room safe) in a tropical white-walled charming atmosphere. Breakfast is wonderful and all of Marcos staff are nice and helpful. Marcos goes above-and-beyond for all of his guests, making suggestions and arranging outings. He is fluent in English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. He clearly takes pride and enjoyment in providing personal attention so that all of this guests have a wonderful time in Cartagena. Les Lezards clearly earns its rating as the #1 B&B in Cartagena.
"Hidden gem with great service"
04/08/15 PefoPefo Copenhagen, Denmark
I stayed 2 nights at Les Lezards and really enjoyed my time. Marcus and the employees are very helpfull (I asked for an adapter and a hairdryer, and both was provided straight away), and they have tons of knowledge about Cartagena and Colombia in general. The rooms - or minihouses - are great, but I think some have more light than others. Mine was very spacious, but also a bit dark. so maybe ask for one of the rooms with big windoms facing the courtyard. Breakfast was nice, simple and authentic (fresh fruit, fried eggs a la Colombia, bread, jam, fresh juice, coffee), and it's wonderfull to sit and eat in the garden while you say goodmorning to the very cute hourse turtle:) The B&B is located in Getsemani; an old working class barrio with lot's of charm.This is were you meet the people or Cartagena, and it's quite different from the old, walled city. It's a bit scruffy in the edges, but I felt safe walking around as a single female. The roof top terrace at the B&B is wonderful, but the water in the jacuzzi wasn't to clean, when I was there.
"Lovely Stay, Lovely Host!"
04/05/15 GleniseNY Brooklyn, NY
My husband & I just got back from a wonderful stay at Les Lezards! We loved it and a big part of that was Marcus and his fantastic staff (esp Luis). The B&B is lovely and we loved hanging out on the roof deck for a sunset drink. It's right in the midst of the wonderful neighborhood of Getsemani; yet on a super quiet street. Marcus was full of great advice and also just incredibly kind to us. We fell in love with Cartagena, Lez Lezards, and Getsemani and can't wait to return!
We stayed at Les Lezards for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. Very centrally located with excellent rooms. Marcus was extremely helpful, pointing out the best of Cartagena and finding us another hotel when we changed our plans and he was fully booked. Would thoroughly recommend.
"Our lovely place"
03/31/15 Giuseppe D
Les Lezards B&B was our first accommodation in Colombia and for us it felt like being at home! Marcus and the complete staff were so friendly during the complete stay. On each request they could give us support and were constantly very helpful. It's definitely a place to recommend to everybody who wants to stay in Cartagena and above all in the middle of the fantastic Getsemani quarter. We will come back and for sure we will visit again Marcus and his lovely place.. Grazie di tutto!
"great place, great location but where was Marcus?"
03/28/15 christasan2015 Bruges, Belgium
This kind of place needs a manager/host to be present. I personal was disappointed. we had all the info, the help we needed in nearby "One day Hostel": tickets for City trip, printing boarding cards, booking domstic flight...Thank you, sweet Carolina. We extended our stay by 2 days but moved to another boutique hotel where we found what we exspected.
03/12/15 marieke01 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We spent 3 nights at Les Lezards and were not disappointed. It is a very cozy bed and breakfast in a perfect location for Cartagena. What I really like about it is that it is very clean and it has great AC! It was very warm outside so it was a pleasure to come back here after spending the day in the heat. Marcus, the owner, is a genuine person. He really cares for his guests and goes above and beyond to make sure they have a wonderful stay. Thank you for your great service Marcus! I would recommend Les Lezards Bed & Breakfast from the heart!

I could make a long list of all the amenities in Marcus's home. I could also tell you about all of the wonderful things in the city of Cartagena, and in this neighborhood, Getsemaní, in particular. Not only would that take too long, but you can also search for these things on your own--so I'm going to tell you about something different, things you can only find in this well-kept and discreet palace on a quiet street where I was lucky enough to stay for just a little while. Before the attendants approached me with a drink, I walked through the white, wooden door and smelled a strange, beguiling scent, and immediately felt far from the street that I had just left. The house is covered in elegant, lively, and sprawling plants, from which I noticed two small turtles take the leaves for meals, and includes a mango tree whose fruits become your breakfast. At night, the exuberant life shifts away from the house as the plants, turtles, and kitchen staff rest, toward the plaza Trinidad nearby, safe, bustling, and very fun. But then, of course, there is always the jacuzzi back home...
