“Relaxing stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Great value, and a relaxing oasis in Getsemani. Staff were great--though no one spoke English.

Pool was very refreshing and the hammocks were a treat!

We liked staying in Getsemani, and as others have said, the walk was cool. The area comes alive at night and you feel the rhythm of the people. The bathroom has a sliding wood divider--not a real door, Hoch would be nice.

Overall, nice and a great value.

Stayed August 2014

I had a good overall experience here.

Pros: Location just a short walk from the walled city, very quiet at night, breakfast included, clean and friendly staff, pool was spectacular and worth the price alone.

Cons: Coffee was terrible for Colombia, staff couldn't provide many recommendations (no maps of city, for example).

If you're looking for a place to relax for a short time, stay here. But I wouldn't stay for a week. (Then again, i wouldn't stay for that long in Cartagena anyway.)

We stayed a few days in Casa Relax and it felt like beeing in an oasis. A very familiar atmosphere with very nice people, a house parrot and a pool! The rooms are comfortable and clean. Very tasty breakfast with fresh fruits! It's located in the middle of Getsemani close to many bars and restaurants! We can fully recommend Casa Relax!

Having stayed in Getsemani in times less friendly, I was firstly amazed to see the backpacking fraternity out in their hordes, chilling in plaza Trinidad just 5 minutes away from the aptly named "Casa Relax". The hotel is nothing fancy but has a comfort to it, spacy rooms, air-co, swimming pool (handy)and friendly staff. The romance of the walled city is a ten minute walk away and as previously mentioned, Plaza Trinidad offers local street delicacies as well as various restaurants.
The hotel breakfast is delish and the staff super friendly....I would stay there every time.

Room Tip: Both rooms I had were very good....hammocks around the pool and a lovely covered terrace to chill...

After a hectic backpacker charter, this place was like heaven. The rooms are basic, but the breakfast was amazing, the pool great, and the silence was incredible, for being in Getsemani! Highly recommended!

this is my first trip to colombia, when first arriving in getsemani i was a little disappointed with what appeared to be a very run down and unsafe area, however after one day all that went out the window. casa relax in not in the main old town area near the clock tower but is a ten min walk with lots of cool cafes along the way. it was sooo nice to retreat to the pool and hammocks after walking around in the heat all day. the breakfast was perfect (eggs, toast, fruit, coffee) and the staff was helpful and the rooms are fine, simple. our power went out once, the ac is not that strong so it took hours to cool our room down, and it did get a little noisy at but but other than that, it was perfect. i traveled with a grilfriend and we felt safe the entire time. getsemani turned out to be perfect for us. we stayed a total of 5 nights.

We stayed 5 nights at Casa Relax. The room itself was nothing fancy, though it was spacious and had plenty of room for our backpacks. It also came with a very good breakfast.

There's no hot water, but it was so hot/humid, both day and night, in Cartagena that we didn't miss it too much. Fortunately, the room had AC, which we certainly needed! Casa Relax also has a great pool, which is kept clean.

The guest house is located in Getsemani, which is a lively area, and is in easy walking distance to the old walled city in Cartagena. But the rooms at Casa Relax are far enough away from the noise down the road, particularly at Plaza de Trinidad, where locals and tourists alike hang out, that we couldn't hear any of it from our room.

The only conflict we had with Casa Relax had to do with payment. Earlier in our stay we were told by one of the staff that we could pay with a credit card, Visa or Mastercard. Unfortunately, we relied on this information, so we didn't have a lot of Colombian pesos on hand. But when it came time to pay for the room (and we needed to pay quickly, since we were about to leave Cartagena to catch our flight), a different staff person there said they took cash only--no credit cards. Unfortunately too, because it was so early in the morning, some of the nearby ATMs were closed, so we had to walk much further to find a working one, but yet were also tight on time because of our morning flight. So I would say to make sure you have enough cash on hand to pay for the room...
