We're going to be in Cartagena on Dec. 18 - 20, and we're looking for budget accommodations for 2 people. We aren't necessarily looking for a hostel, but we can do that if it's the best deal. We heard Hotel Las Vegas was good, but the recommendations were from a while ago. Has anyone stayed there recently? How much does it cost? I saw one person say $20 a night, but that was in 2009. Does anyone know how to make a reservation there from abroad? I'm afraid if we show up in Cartagena without reservations during that time of year we won't be able to find a cheap place. If anyone has other recommendations, we'd love to hear them. (If you have the price you paid, that's even better).
Thanks in advance for your help!

2You'll have a good choice of budget hotels in Getsemani. Significantly nicer and less money than you would pay in El Centro. About a 15 minute stroll from Hotel Las Vegas. Such places as La Magdalena, Casa Baluarte, San Roque and Villa Colonial. You may be able to negotiate a better price for multiple nights, or if you show up in person. You may want airconditioning.

3Thanks for the responses! I did see Villa Colonial in my prior research--do you know if their single ensuite with fan can sleep 2 people (i.e. a couple), or is it only for one person? I couldn't tell from the website, and I haven't yet received a response from them to my email asking that question. I also took a look at La Magdalena, but I haven't researched Casa Baluarte or San Roque yet. Will take a look at those next. Thanks!

4No, sorry, I don't know about the single ensuite bed size in Hotel Villa Colonial.

5FYI - Villa Colonial got back to me and said the single ensuite is only for one person. Thanks again for the resources!
Bags feeling light?
Coffee table looking bare?
