Cartagena is a great city but the old town can be very expensive to stay in. There are a lot of amazing boutique hotels but when we first looked we couldn't see any that were at all affordable. We ended up going to Casa Veranera on a recommendation and it was such a terrific hotel. It's small, only 4 or 5 rooms, but has a little pool on the roof and lots of areas to lie out and relax in. The Decor is super stylish and there's amazing attention to detail in all of the little touches. It's also in a great location and a nice quiet street. All the staff were unbelievably nice, and Maralyn who manages the hotel could not have worked harder to make our stay great. The afternoon we arrived, they had already made a dinner reservation for us for that night - not that we felt obligated to go, but it was a great recommendation and we were grateful for the thought. During the 4 days we were there the same 3 people were taking care of the hotel and they were all so helpful and terrific. All in all the atmosphere of the hotel goes out of its way to make you feel relaxed and enjoy your stay. I highly recommend it.
