Another cute little studio with balcony! Picture yourself sitting at your beautiful teak table while looking out over the bustling street below. And at night…see the city light up!
Take your virtual tour below:
The studio is great for a single person or a couple. It is one room furnished with a double bed, built-in bedside shelves, a stand-alone closet with shelves & place to hang clothes, and a 40″ flat screen TV. There is a a full bathroom with rain showerhead plus a kitchenette: sink, microwave, small refrigerator, toaster, induction burner, and coffee machine, in addition to cabinets with dishes, etc. And the studio has a host of other amenities, such as wifi and air conditioning, listed here.
See below for availability; a colored bar means no availability that night. If this studio is not available for your dates, check here for others or don’t hesitate to contact me as there may be availability in one of other apartments for you!
(Note that it’s possible to connect this studio with Balcones 303 next store via a “hotel door” that locks on both sides; if you rent both apartments, unlock each side and you have a two bedroom/two bath unit!)

I had a fantastic stay in Balcones! I stayed in Apt. 302 (I think) and had a wonderful view of the bustling street below from my little balcony. The apartment is right in the middle of the walled city--it's close to everything: >5 min walk to torre reloj, 10 min walk to the conference center, 20 min walk (or less) to Getsemani. This apartment is close to a nice square with lovely outdoor restaurants, and where fireworks went off on Friday and Saturday nights around 8:30 pm, which I could see ... show full review
Thank you so much -- glad you had everything you needed and then some! The bed is a full sized double, but maybe it seems queen-like! 🙂 Please come back!
Place was nice and clean but the hot water didn't work and wifi and Netflix was very spotty. If booking this room, just know that your the top floor right next to the roof so there didn't seem to be a curfew for the roof so people were drunk and yelling till 6am so we didn't get much sleep at all. The balcony was great for people watching and is in a great location. This review is more about the room but Barbara and Benjamin were great hosts and very great with recommendations and responsiveness... show full review
Daniel, thank you for your nice words about our hosting, but I'm sorry you had anything less than a perfect stay. There is a curfew for the roof deck which was lifted on special request by another guest during one night of your visit, but that will obviously not happen again as the trust was abused. I encourage you if something like this ever happens during a future stay (with us or anyone else), please contact the host immediately (yes, even for noise in the middle of the night; as you noted we are very responsive & Benjamin can be there in 5 minutes for any issue!) so the situation can be rectified on the spot & your stay is not marred. The internet & hot water has been checked/tested and no issues found, although note that the hot water takes a bit of time to come and that internet in general in Colombia is not as fast as in the US and other places. I'm not sure why you might have been having a problem, but please (for any future guests!!) if there are issues like this please let Apartment Manager Benjamin know right away so they can be addressed while you are there. Thank you again for staying with us!
Benjamin and Jasmina were great. They were very helpful and the apartment was just as described. Definitely recommend.
Thanks so much & we are all very happy you liked it!
Great location, right in the middle of the walled city. Benjamin was great to help us out with whatever we needed. Great rooftop patio!
Muchas gracias for the nice review -- very glad you liked it!
I highly recommend this property. Everything within the walled city is walkable. I felt safe the entire time. Barb and Benjamin helped with everything I needed including an extra night as my travel plans changed. I will stay here again on my next trip to Cartagena.
Yay! Glad you liked it & we look forward to having you back!
