"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
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

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

"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

"Couldnt be better!...great place to stay"

Great location, charming room, beautiful hotel, and great service. Marcus took his time to sit down with us and gave us suggestions of what to visit, where to eat, how to get, etc...if we go back to Cartagena there is not doubt that we'll return here.

Les Lezards is a beautiful B&B in Cartagena. I stayed at the Provence Room and couldn't have had better. The room is small but is fully equipped, there's a huge TV and the bed is amazingly comfortable. The decoration is lovely. The location in Getsemaní couldn't be better: a 10-15 min walk from anywhere you want to reach in the center. The area can get agitated at night, but it is still quiet and it feels like home. The staff was professional and made us a wonderful breakfast. Definitely recommend!
"A magical oasis in the crazy heat of Cartagena"
01/20/15 MrandMrsLawes London, United Kingdom
Lez Lezards is situated in what we feel is one of the best neighbourhoods in Cartagena - Getsemani. Literally just 10 mins walk to the centre but the best thing about Getsemani is that it's where locals live, eat, drink and fill the streets with wonderful music, whilst there are lots of great bars and restaurants for visitors too. And once you step inside the door of Lez Lezards you are met with an oasis of calm. At the centre of the property is a lovely kitchen dining space where breakfast is taken. Along with the two terraces on the roof of the property we used this for pre drinks with other guests before heading out for the night. Our room was spacious, with a living area at one end filled with books and all sorts of other interesting things, plus a well stocked minibar, a bathroom with twin basins and large open shower. Marcus has everything covered. On our arrival he walked us around the property, gave us a map of the area and shared excellent advice and information that only somebody who's lived there for as long as he has would be able to. The entire staff are a credit to the guesthouse too. Very polite and helpful. The breakfast and coffee is delicious. I spent a week at Lez Lezards with my wife and it would be our first choice should we visit Cartagena again. Other guests who stayed there at the same time as us shared our opinion. Top marks!
"Perfect for us"
01/20/15 MarshaRichard New York City, New York
We loved staying at Les Lezards. Marcus is a perfect host, knowledgeable, helpful, with good judgment and excellent suggestions; and the staff is lovely. The room was comfortable and cool, nicely decorated, TV and mini-bar, a safe in room (although we felt perfectly secure), books and magazines, nice to return to for an afternoon siesta in the heat. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. We particularly liked staying in Getsemani, which was quieter and more of a real neighborhood than other parts of the old city, which are teeming with tourists. We left feeling like we had found the perfect place for us in Cartagena.
"Charming B&B in Cartagena"
01/19/15 nona2015 Philippines
We only had less than 24 hrs to explore Cartagena this past Dec. The best decision was staying in Les Lezards Bed & Breakfast. It was a very cozy house, plants and Carribean tiles adorned the hallways. The rooms were very comfortable,cotton linen and orthopedic bed ensured a restful evening. Marcus, the owner,is a gem! He arranged airport pick up, dinner reservations to a "local" restaurant nearby, and even a Chivas Party bus. After a delicious breakfast ( included), we toured the old city, and left with the most pleasant and interesting experience in this beautiful coastal town.
"Best place to stay"
01/17/15 Glen C Chilliwack, Canada
My wife and I spent 7 days in January 2015 staying at this great hidden gem. We were picked up at the airport even tho our flight was 3 hours late as promised. This place is located in Getsemaní district which is a very friendly place with families and friends hanging out in the streets after the sun goes down. Never were we made to feel unwelcome anywhere we went. The staff at Les Lezards are wonderful and as helpful as possible even with my lack of Spanish and made us feel at home. The B&b is well kept and very clean and modern but still has the old world charm. The breakfasts are great, with a different homemade juice everyday. Cartagena is our new favorite vacation destination due to a large part of Markus and his staff. We will defiantly be staying at Les Lezards again.
"Charming B&B in authentic Cartagena!"
01/17/15 Marisa0913 Austin, Texas
My boyfriend and I traveled to Cartagena for a relaxing and adventurous vacation. Marcus is a fantastic host, and Les Lezards is absolutely charming! We stayed a total of 5 nights in this beautiful bed and breakfast and, although many other hotel/bed and breakfast options exist in Cartagena, we had zero regrets for choosing Les Lezards. Our room was clean and chilled (hooray for AC!) and very homey feeling; it didn't feel like a typical hotel where we were just one in a number at all. Marcus has much experience with all the tourist-y things in and around Cartagena, and his great advice and suggestions were very much appreciated! He took care of arranging all the bookings for our trips out of the city (to Tayrona, to the Rosario Islands, and a cab to the airport), which was doubly appreciated because neither me nor my boyfriend are incredibly fluent in Spanish. We loved staying here, and are so glad to have had such a wonderful host to help make our travels less stressful.

I stayed 4 nights in a wonderful two-storied room in the bed & breakfast Les Lezards. The bathroom was upstairs, nice and clean, shower with open windows. A narrow stair leads to the downstairs area with a cozy bed, desk and wardrobe. Veeery nice breakfast with fresh juice and plenty of food. I arrived really late (3am as flight was delayed), but Marcus was still waiting for me, which I appreciated very much! Thanks again! The stay was very pleasant, perfect location, good restaraunt in the area and just around the corner of the spanish language school Nueva Lengua. Happy to come back some time!

My wife and I stayed here in January 2015 and had a wonderful time. The B&B is the long-term project of the owner, Markus, and has a very eclectic layout and design sensibility. I, for one, was fascinated by it. We stayed in the Santorini room and loved it. Other reviews have pointed out that it is accessed by a very steep and winding staircase, which is true, but I just thought it added to the charm. The semi- open-air shower on the top floor was a cool experience. at Les Lizards you really do have a sense of being a guest in someone's home. Markus' books, magazines and DVDs imparted a personality to the place and the pet cat and turtle in the patio were fun. The staff is extremely kind and helpful and make a good breakfast. I liked staying in the Gethsemane neighborhood because it has the feel of a truly local barrio. I strongly recommend the nightly people-watching and street food at Plaza de la Trinidad, which is a 5 minute walk.
"Love this place!"
01/07/15 Alicia M
My best friend and I traveled to Cartagena over Christmas. It was our first time in Colombia and we could not have picked a better place to stay at! We knew we made the right decision when Marcus offered us to pick us up at the airport! Upon arriving at Le Lezards on Christmas night, we were greeted by Marcus who was super helpful answering all of the questions we had in regards to the city and activities we wanted to do. The room was great- clean, modern and with a hot open roof shower! Breakfast was delicious as well with great coffee, fresh fruits, eggs and toast. This B&B is located in a great area with lots of fun bars and restaurants and it is also close to the walled city- about a 15 minute walk. We felt safe at all times. Besides this place being great, Marcus the owner was amazing! He stored our bags when we left to Tyrona Park half way through our trip, booked the island tour we wanted and our bus to Santa Marta. He made everything so easy for us! We stayed at a different place the second leg of our trip because Les Lezards had no available accommodations and did not like it as much. Les Lezards was much better! I HIGHLY recommend this place!
