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

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.

"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

"Excellent place to stay & great staff!"
07/24/14 ndshah08 Hillsborough, New Jersey, United States
Les Lezards was a beautiful B&B that I stayed in with a few friends. The room was very clean and had great air conditioning. The breakfasts that were made daily were always fresh and delicious. Marcus, the owner/host, provided excellent recommendations for restaurants/attractions and even provided a map with marked places to visit. I had wish I had known the laundry prices before hand but it turned out to be very reasonable anyways. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Old City.
"Quiet and comfortable"
07/23/14 NBrilliant Oakland, California
My fiance and I stayed at Les Lezards June of 2014 and really enjoyed our visit. The owner and host Marcus was super accommodating and his staff was very kind and patient with my terrible Spanish. The room we stayed in was cute. The bed was very comfortable. The AC was extremely strong (which we loved!). The bathroom was a tad small but had a very cool open air shower. We loved the neighborhood. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Great breakfast too!
"Wonderful B&B that is also a great value."
07/23/14 Mark N New York City, New York
This is an amazing little B&B in the Getsemani area of Cartagena. The location is a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to everything Cartagena has to offer. Les Lezards is truly a hidden gem that must be seen to be appreciated. As beautiful as the guesthouse and grounds are it is Marcus the owner and his staff that make Les Lezards truly special. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at ease. Marcus sat with us and gave us an extensive orientation about the area's restaurants and attractions. He also arranged several day trips for us with a local guide named Maria Jose who was equally accommodating and gracious. His staff was always friendly and willing to accommodate any request. If you want a beautiful, quiet, romantic hotel where you can feel as if you're staying with old friends then you cannot do better than Les Lezards.

Les Lezards was a great place to stay for a trip to Cartagena. The rooms were nice and well taken care of and the morning breakfast (included with your stay) was fantastic. The location was good as well - short walk to the heart of old town, but quiet and secluded in Getsemani at the same time. Marcus, the owner, was also very helpful and guided us to a number of good restaurants and activities.
"Perfect Place to Stay in Cartagena"
07/23/14 gweitzner New York City, New York
Marcus's bed and breakfast is the perfect place to stay in Cartagena. The location is ideal (in the more quiet, local portion of Old City and is less touristy), the staff are extremely helpful, and the rooms are all quirky and great (ours had this great outdoor shower). The guesthouse itself is beautiful with plants everywhere and even a few turtles roaming around. Marcus is also very knowledgable about Cartagena (having lived there for 20-years) and was more than willing to help us find great places to eat and drink. We had a great time here and I will come back here if I return to Cartagena
"a great b&b while visiting old town"
07/23/14 worldexplorer53 New Orleans, Louisiana
this small b&b is located a safe and short walk to the clock tower gate into the old town. we would walk home from some great restaurant within the walled city, even as late as midnight, and found the areas well populated and well lit. the staff at the b&b was most friendly and fed us an excellent breakfast each morning of our 4 day stay. marcus, the owner/host, acted as a good friend with suggestions to fill our itinerary or where to find some great local cuisine. clean and charming, les lezards, would be a great place for anyone at a very fair pricing.
"Best place for my daughter and her friends!!"
07/16/14 CarmenPizano Potomac, Maryland
I felt so secure with Markus, he was all the time taking care of the 3 teen agers! They had a wonderful time there and said that is a perfect place to be! very clean,nice,good taste...Markus know everything about the area,restaurants,trips,islands etc.etc. Is located in a very good place in the heart of cartagena,walking distance to all that you want to visit
Rating: A+++ Les Lezards B&B a romantic gem in old Cartegena and Marcus is truly a saint - you won’t find a nicer or more accommodating host. A+++ SERVICE: Upon arrival, Marcus arranged for an airport pick-up and personally greeted us to say hello and ensure we were happy with our room and knew EVERYTHING about the city of Cartegena before we began exploring the beautiful city. He provided a detailed map and cited all the worthwhile areas, restaurants and shops to visit in old Cartegena. Marcus has lived in Cartegena for over twenty years, so his insider knowledge is far superior than any guide book recommendation or online suggestions you’ll find. Additionally, he was available 24/7 in case we needed any help or had any questions – and of course - we did many times … His shining moment as a gracious and committed host actually occurred after we had departed Les Lezards – if you can believe - he personally tracked down our misplaced cell phone and shipped it to us at home! You will not find a nicer or more accommodating host than Marcus. A+++ PROPERTY: Les Lezards B&B is romantic, charming and seductive. The chic Mediterranean aesthetic is reflective of Marcus’ European roots and nods to his design savvy as a professional photographer. With winding brick and tile staircases leading to secluded bedrooms, open showers and – of course – the plant-laden lounge patio with a private Jacuzzi, your humanly troubles fade away and you’re transported to a simpler and more mindful state of mind. If you’re going to stay in the old city of Cartegena, there is only one place – Les Lezards!
"Excellent choice - wonderful stay"
07/06/14 Jenn D Miami, Florida
As soon as we saw this place online we wanted to stay here sometime during our visit to Cartagena.The Mediterranean and at the same time modern style got our attention even the location of it in the heart of Cartagena we fell in love with it; when we contacted Marcus for the reservation for our big group of family he did the best for the accommodations in the rooms available, very spacious, very clean, very comfortable with all the needs. it was like being in our own place. the ladies assisting with the breakfast were very kind, loved seeing the turtles walking around so friendly...in the end we were completely satisfied with the excellent selection by staying at this wonderful and kind of magical place.
"Dream stay in Cartagena: more than a B&B"
06/05/14 DDM7676 London, United Kingdom
Me and my wife have been traveling across Ecuador and Colombia, staying in many places but the best memories in terms of accommodations we stayed in were definitely from Les Lizard. Firstly it's location, walking distance to everywhere in Cartagena, however off the "tourist path" but still very central and in a very characterful area of the town. It just made us feel like we were locals rather than tourists. Then Marcus, he's not the kind of host you'd expect to meet. He organize for us FREE transfer from the airport to our first hotel we stayed in Cartagena (we were not booked at his B&B on the first night as we had make a previous booking somewhere else) kind enough by offering to hold our larger luggage which we did not need for few days before actually staying at his B&B. He's the nicest host I've ever met, we were almost friend by day 2, probably helped by the fact his and mine heritage are both Italian. Still he was full of knowledge and tips about where to go, what to see whilst in Cartagena and a great company at the same time. He was truly instrumental in us falling in love with the city. The rooms are much nicer than what you'd expect for a B&B, very characterful and unique. The small jacuzzi on the rooftop also was a great escape, away from the hot sun during the peak of the daily heat. Breakfast was a feast, with lots of fruit, cereals, bread, jam, butter, eggs and anything else you asked for the 2 ladies helping out were always happy to prepare, without any notice whatsoever. We are definitely going back to Cartagena and we'll absolutely stay again at Marcus B&B. This is a hidden gem which I truly recommend to everyone visiting this breathtaking city. Davide
