Charming quaint square right in front of "Diego de Alcalá Suites". Plenty of restaurants and bars, including our very own "Cafe de Artistas Bistro - Bar", conveniently located downstairs. Beautiful vegetation flowing from balconies around the square.
Public transit a few blocks outside the walled city although taxis abound at very reasonable fares.
"Plaza Fernandez de Madrid" is one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's favorite squares, which inspired "Love in the Time of Cholera".

Stayed 4 nights. Maria is extremely friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean, secure and perfectly located. Would definitely stay there again. Diego and Maria (another one) who work in the cafe below were also wonderful people. Very pleased with all aspects of our stay.
Maria is possibly the loveliest host we have met with 4 years of airbnb. Warm and welcoming she and her wonderful staff made our stay a delight. The apartment is cosy and quiet....and we were here for New Years!!! The apartment is situated on probably the nicest plaza in Cartagena so our evening nightcap was usually at our front door. Cartagena is a picture postcard destination and staying with Maria completed the whole experience. The apartment is small, but perfect size for a base to come and go. We stayed a week and were very comfortable. The mezzaine stairs are quite steep so I would not recommend for the more mature or less mobile. But for a couple or single I think it is a great space. Loved it. Thanks Maria for making our New Years so much fun.
We had a wonderful time in the loft--the location could not be better for exploring Cartagena, and everything was perfect!
Maria was a terrific host, communicating with us always very quickly and accommodating our every need once we arrived in Cartagena. Her place is stunning- high ceilings, great bed, view of the plaza, wet bar and fridge, hot water, comfortable lounge furniture, and everything else you need to pass a relaxing weekend in the walled city. I would (and have already) highly recommend Maria's place to anyone staying in Cartagena.
Maria was a fantastic host. She was extremely friendly, really helpful and responded really promptly to my queries. She even arranged my transport to my next destination. I’d happily recommend anyone to stay at her flat. It’s in a really convenient location for everything and it’s really safe too.
We stayed with Maria in the cozy loft room of her establishment and we really enjoyed it! The loft was quiet, comfy, clean and has a great view of the plaza below. The location is great, right in the heart of the historic center. We can't say enough about Maria. We had some airline issues and arrived a day late and she was very flexible during this time. She helped get our luggage, directed us to different restaurants and shops, and had many other recommendations for us. You will not regret staying with Maria in the walled city!
Maria was the perfect hostess, highly recommended! Great communication leading up to the trip and was there to meet us upon arrival to get us checked in and provide helpful information about the city. The loft was in the perfect location, within walking distance to all the main attractions with tons of restaurants literally right downstairs. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony at night overlooking the beautiful Plaza Fernandez de Madrid. The building was under some construction but as we were out exploring most of the day it did not affect us. Be sure to visit Donald at "La Casa Del Habano" on the opposite side of the plaza for incredible mojito's and conversation! Also if you're looking for someone to show you around and arrange tours like scuba diving etc, look for Willie, an English speaking guide at the Cathedral de San Pedro Claver (a short walk from the loft), he took great care of us the entire trip. Cartagena is a beautiful city with kind, inviting people, and the loft was the perfect place to be a part of it:)!
This is the perfect place to stay in Cartagena. Maria was an excellent host - friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!
The place we had booked was under construction so we stayed in a different place, same building. The place was cute, met our needs and was in a great central location in the old city.
We had a fabulous stay at Maria's place in Cartagena. It is located in an excellent location. Unfortunately the cafe downstairs was closed for renovation while we were there and there was other construction work going on throughout the building, but that didn't interfere with our stay at all. All the amenities were as described and I would definitely recommend this apartment to any friend going to Cartagena. Prior to arriving in Cartagena Maria was always quick to respond to e-mails. This was an excellent trip.
