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"
I had an absolutely wonderful stay. The owner and staff were fantastic. This is a great little hideaway and also home to the world's most social tortuga.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

"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

"A great place to relax in Getsemani"
12/15/14 Timothee_Friesen Peachtree City, Georgia
My brother and I spent a couple of nights at Les Lezards over the weekend. We were the only guests. It's a B&B with just a few rooms. The room we stayed in was very clean and modern. It had a great air conditioner, a TV, and a shower with an open roof. It's close to the Trinidad church, which is very lively at night. The area feels very safe. The staff was very friendly and made a good breakfast. Some of our clothes were washed while we were out - which was nice. We talked to the owner, who was very nice and told us where to buy the Mochila bags we were looking for. The little Jaccuzi on the second floor is very nice. You are in your own little world. Next time I'll come back with my wife!
"A place to return to"
12/14/14 AJTraveler55 New York City, New York
My partner and I stayed at Les Lezards B&B twice during our trip to Colombia in early December and loved it both times. The place had a laid-back and pleasant vibe, and the staff was friendly and attentive. Markus was a delight to chat with and very helpful. He arranged our transportation to and from the airport, offered spot-on restaurant recommendations, helped us arrange a walking tour, and helped us connect with our host for a mid-week trip to Baru Island. The B&B is located on a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the main square in Getsemani, a fascinating neighborhood that retains its authentic charm, where people’s lives extend from their homes out onto the street. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the old city center. The two rooms we stayed in were cozy and comfortable, with clean bathrooms and charming decorations. We slept well every night. We’re not big TV watchers, but we actually liked the big flat screen TVs with Netflix, and the wi-fi was fast and reliable. Our first room was near the kitchen, and we were afraid there would be noise. But it turned out to be very quiet and comfortable and we liked the convenience of being on the main floor. After a few days on Baru Island, we looked forward to returning to Les Lezards, and loved the room we got the second time around. At the top of a winding staircase, a private sitting area leads to the room, which felt like an adventurer’s hideaway. The bathroom was upstairs from the sleeping area and featured a large open-air (but still very private) shower. Breakfast at the B&B was generous and varied from day to day. We loved the fruit juices and their arepas stuffed with eggs were amazing! After staying at Les Lezards twice, we would definitely stay again on a return trip to Cartagena.
"comfortable B&B in great location"
12/13/14 mikepilot99 Orlando, Florida
I had a great stay at the les lezards B&B. The owner Marcus and his staff are very nice and helpful with anything that you need. Rooms are nice and they have different sizes available to fit your needs. Comfortable beds, clean, and reasonably quiet given it's location in the heart of the city. Getsemani neighborhood was great, very nice people and short walk to lots of shops and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here. I will certainly repeat next time I am in Cartagena.
"Great place to stay outside the walled city."
12/11/14 Becky-StPete Saint Pete Beach, Florida
I believe if it were inside the walls it would be a lot more expensive. Marcus and his whole staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. I think it was a better trip because we didn't stay inside the walled part. We spent more time in Getsemani and San Diego neighborhoods, especially at night. Great restaurants and people watching and Les Lezards was only 2 blocks from Trinadad Plaza which is packed every night of the week.
"Quiet Oasis in Getsemani."
12/07/14 mountwash1 Tampa
Marcus is fantastic.I felt like I made a new friend.Thank you. His B & B met every expectation and Les Lezards is a quiet,quaint oasis in Getsemani. The staff is lovely,sweet,friendly,and professional.Someone was always around to answer questions, make you coffee,call a taxi,whatever is needed. We had 2 rooms.We loved both.The rooms are cleaned everyday which is sometimes unusual in B & B's.They are full of books,magazines,videos. Wifi is everywhere. The colonial style house adds to the warmth of the experience.If you are looking for complete modern amenities this may not be the place for you .If you want to experience Getsemani in a more traditional way you will love this. Les Lezards is much more like a small boutique hotel than a B & B..an incredible value and an incredible find.
"A pleasant oasis"
12/06/14 tas68 Melbourne, Australia
We enjoyed our two nights here. We booked in advance by email and Marcus was quick and helpful with his responses, helpful with arrangements for a transfer from the airport. A great host initially, a font of knowledge about a town he clearly loves and full of suggestions for those interested in some less touristy places to visit, we wish we'd seen more of him. Our room was eclectically decorated and chock-full of the souvenirs of an adventurer. Cool and clean with a small but functional bathroom, the room was great apart from the hard bed and confined spaces. Breakfasts were a little disappointing- choices were limited and we pretty much got only what was offered which was difficult for me as a vegetarian (and im not that fussy). The upstairs outdoors areas were a relaxing osasis but being small, requires some negotiation with other guests to share the space.
"a+ all around"
12/05/14 katieyuko San Francisco, California
I have stayed a total of six nights at Les Lezards, in three different rooms-- the experience was more than I could have hoped for. The rooms are beautiful and well-lit; the beds are super comfortable; the air conditioning is powerful yet quiet, and the bathrooms are amazing-- powerful waterfall shower heads, some showers with open skylights and beautiful Colombian sky to look up at while you bathe. Each room is stocked with water, beer, juice, and snacks-- all very reasonably priced. Breakfast is cooked for you by the super helpful and friendly staff-- eggs, toast, coffee, fruits we had never heard of (lulu), and fresh juice. The property is clean, colorful and full of personality (like Cartagena) and even has a few turtles walking around. The rooms even have smart tvs! So if you party too hard and need to spend a day in bed watching Netflix like we did, you can do that, too. Maybe better than anything else is the location. Les Lezards is within walking distance to every destination we had on our list of places to visit, yet it's also far enough away from the madness of some of the surrounding hostels and clubs. The worst thing about Les Lezards is that it's always booked-- if we're lucky, we'll definitely be staying there again.
"Un lugar unico para verdaderamente disfrutar de Cartagena"
12/04/14 MarcReg Bogota, Colombia
The place was great, with an excellent quality to price ratio. More than just a B and B, you can really feel at home here in Cartagena with the help of Marcus and his wonderful cooks who will give a a great start to your day with a delicious breakfast. I highly recommend this place to anyone willing to truly discover this amazing city. Recomendo este lugar para cualquier persona quien quiere discubrir Cartagena. Marc
"nice staff, photos look better online"
12/03/14 lizziebirds New York City, New York
pros: marcus and the staff are very friendly and helpful cons: very narrow, claustraphobic "motel' like walkway, with doors to small rooms with poor ventilation/no windows. there is no central area to sit and relax (unless you sit outside the kitchen). the upstairs patio is very small and the hot tub looked a bit grimey. overall, a bit pricey for the value; more like a hostel.
"A few flaws"
12/02/14 Caminoista Vancouver, B.C. Canada
Marcus is exactly as other reviewers have described: patient, helpful, friendly. Our room was tastefully furnished but quite small; I felt claustraphobic and it was difficult for 2 people to move around at the same time. Pluses are the quiet aircon, wonderful hot shower, great location in Getsamani. But for the price I thought there were a few flaws: no shampoo, 1 bar of soap shared between basin and shower, toilet paper not replaced when low. The bed was quite hard (but comfy pillows). Also, when the water isn't safe, I think a reasonable amount of bottled water should be provided free of charge. Finally, you have to ask for some menu items which are on the written list but not mentioned by the staff. All in all, I would recommend it but I also think it's a bit too expensive for what you get.
