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
"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
Accueil très sympathique. Chambre très jolie et plus que confortable. Au calme dans le quartier pourtant animé de Getsemani - à quelques minutes des murailles du centre. Juste parfait!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Una experiencia inolvidable"
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
"Tu casa en Cartagena"
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. El barrio también es muy lindo y hasta los vecinos son muy copados! Super recomendable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Essa pousada é muito agradável. A equipe do hotel muito atenciosa. Indico tranquilamente.

"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. […] We loved everything this place! And the shower (we stayed at room Santorini) was amazing!!!! We recommend this place highly! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Me atendió el dueño, un francés muy simpático y amable. Recomiendo ir al hotel cuando la intención es salir a caminar por la Ciudad Amurallada y cuando se desea relajar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from Home"
I enjoyed my 3 week stay at this enchanting place! Host and personnel took great care of me. I enjoyed my breakfast chats with other guests and gazed at the moon on the small mirador at nights! Location is fantastic just a few steps from Plaza Trinidad where locals and visitors mingle at night! Loved the two house turtles too! I'll be back one day for sure! Thanks for everything!
"Hidden Gem in Cartagena"
10/03/14 Mitchell G
Marcus's place is absolutely fantastic!!! The B&B is superbly located in the Getsemani area, and allows you to experience the real culture of Cartagena while still only a few minutes walk away from the Walled City. We stayed in the Santorini Room, and found the accommodation extremely comfortable and cosy. It is a purely unique experience that you won't find elsewhere in Cartagena. On an added note, breakfast is fantastic and the room is well equipped with a great selection of movies and books for lazing around after a long day of exploring the city. Marcus and his staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend!
"World class, exceptional place"
09/27/14 NeverTireOfTheRoad London, United Kingdom
The friendly, relaxed owner Marcus greeted me by name at the door and offered detailed advice on everything I wished to know about the city. The exceptional interior design, cleanliness, personal attention, and above all the sense of ease at Les Lezards make it a remarkable small hotel. I travel on business for about 3 months of every year and can honestly say I have never enjoyed staying anywhere more. The staff are friendly, kind and helpful. The breakfast is fantastic, eaten in the open courtyard. I am grateful for everything about this wonderful place.
"Fantastic B&B in Trendy Getsemani!"
09/25/14 Sabila K New York City, New York
My husband and I traveled to Cartagena for our two year anniversary. We decided to stay here based on all the great reviews, especially since neither one of us really speak Spanish. We stayed in two different rooms during our time there- the Africa room and the Santorini room. Both rooms had extremely comfortable beds and great air conditioning. The Africa room is the biggest room. It's interesting and romantic and away from any potential kitchen noise. The Santorini room was beautiful. You have to walk up a very narrow set of stairs to get to your room so be warned if you are on the heavier side or have really big luggage. Once in the room, you have to climb up another set of stairs for the shower- which is an open shower with blue tiles! It's very romantic and feels so cool. Also, there is a small Jacuzzi on the roof accessible to all guests. This is a hidden gem and great for couples to cool down before going out for the night. We happened to meet a few other guests during breakfast whom we became friends with. We ended up traveling together for the day and this was one of the highlights of our trip! The rooms are clean. There are basic amenities like toilet paper, soap, and a hair dryer (upon request) so be sure to bring all other toiletries. Bug spray is good too- use it every morning and also at night to ensure no mosquitos get at you. Also, drink only bottled water! And ensure it is real bottled water and not tap water in a bottle. The breakfast every morning was good-cereal, yogurts, eggs, toast, coffee and fresh juice. Marcus is very friendly and nice. He is definitely an excellent resource for planning your trip. Once you get there he will give you a map and can provide more details on good places to go and sights to see. Be sure to ask about what days things are open. Knowing that Marcus is there to help also makes you feel safer as he is someone you can trust. If anything, we wish we had more time to chat with him as his home clearly shows he's had a very interesting life! The location is also great- Getsemani is such a cool and fun place. Think the East Village or Lower Side of NYC. I would definitely recommend staying here as opposed to in the walled city. The walled city is fine to spend a day or two sightseeing but Getsemani is much cooler at night and definitely less touristy. I recommend Cocina de Pepina to eat and Gaucho- an Argentinian place to eat. Also, we went to Cafe Habana and loved it. The live music was terrific and we danced even though it was packed with people. Overall, we had a great time at Les Lezards and would definitely recommend staying here! Thank you Marcus!
"Oasis in perfect location to walk everywhere!"
09/20/14 3rdhoneymoon Los Angeles
We really enjoyed the B&B. Everything previous reviewers have said about its ambiance, character, hospitality, and comfort are true. The air conditioning was perfect, design of rooms beautiful, comfortable beds, and made to order hot breakfast every morning with delicious coffee and fresh fruit juices that we could have in-room or on the patio. Although the rooms are small - they are well designed enough that they don't feel as small, with cubbies and shelves for storage and beautifully tiled outdoor shower. The only thing missing is a full length mirror!!! We especially liked how close the B&B was to the walled city, the Havana Club, Bazurto Social Club, and many other restaurants and attractions. As a result we were able to walk pretty much everywhere in Getsemani and the Walled City. And Marcos and the rest of the team were very hospitable. We will definitely come back!
"Fantastic Inn just outside the touristy areas"
09/15/14 Timothy O San Francisco, California, United States
My wife set up this reservation and was the first stop in a three week vacation throughout Central/South America. This Inn was an amazing introduction to this part of the world, as was Cartagena in general. The historical area of Cartagena felt very safe and we would walk around the neighborhood at night without problem. There are many squares in the area, with great bars and restaurants and sometimes live music in our case! The real lifesaver of our trip to Cartagena was owner Marcus. He is extremely friendly and will spend time with you to tell you all the great places to see and eat in Cartagena, make taxi arrangements, dinner reservations, anything you need. You cant get this kind of insight and help from a major hotel. The rooms were great, the breakfast was delicious and we even made some friends while staying there. Les Lezards its the place to stay while in Cartagena!
"Great Place in a Great Location!"
09/15/14 Angie M Portland, Oregon, United States
My husband and I stayed at Les Lezards for four nights and absolutely loved it. Marcus the host is super friendly and helpful on anything that has to do with Cartagena and beyond. The Getsemani area is a cute little neighborhood with lots of places to eat and drink and only a few minutes walk from the walled city. The guesthouse has a ton of charm, the staff are super friendly and the complimentary breakfast was awesome. Air conditioning too!! Great stay!
"The cleanest place I've ever stayed!!"
09/14/14 MagsNLo Boston, Massachusetts
We only stayed one night but it was the best night we had while visiting the area. This place is so clean you could eat off of the ground. The place itself is so charming. We went to the roof top at night and it is so beautiful and peaceful. There are two cute turtles walking around which is such an adorable touch. There are plants everywhere but no bugs. The room is adorable with an indoor/outdoor shower. The bathroom is indoors but ceiling to the shower is open to the outside. The bed was so comfortable. They have a minibar, air conditioning, huge TV, and safe. The staff is extremely helpful and made our visit amazing. Breakfast was wonderful and made to order. We were able to meet Markus in passing. What a nice guy! I wish we could have spent more time there. The location is great and close to all restaurants you may want to visit. The complimentary airport pickup was the best. Do yourself a favor and stay here while visiting Cartagena.
"Beautiful guesthouse in Getsemani, Cartagena"
09/09/14 Littlehelen243 London, United Kingdom
We can't recommend Les Lezards highly enough! Had a wonderful few days at the guesthouse - accommodation was beautiful, within walking distance to all the main sights and loads of great bars/restaurants. Also made for a lovely place to sit and relax on the terrace when it was to hot in the city. The rooms were beautifully furnished including air con and spotless (and were cleaned daily throughout our stay). Marcus and his staff were incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout, we really couldn't have asked for more!
"Charming, cosy and best neighborhood"
09/02/14 AlexBesant Toronto, Canada
This lovely B&B is in the most interesting neighborhood in the city with a great blend of locals and visitors. The rooms are simply spectacular: cozy, with an exceptional attention to detail. Marcus is one of a kind - beyond friendly, helpful and an inspiration to anyone who wants to live the good life one day like he does. Wifi internet worked great. Instead of staying in a big hotel with no history, stay in this historical B&B. You won't regret it.
