Modest certainly doesn't apply to the décor and use of space. This place punches way above its petite size to deliver a stellar quality lux abode that brushes on the side of contemporary without completely losing its historical soul.
We love a good bathroom, and we certainly hit pot luck when we woke up for a shower at this place and stumbled across a stunning cast iron free standing bath in a warm tangerine toned room.
Lather up with a knockout view and bucket loads of natural light that will leave you more refreshed than any shower session you've had in your life.
Once you've freshened up, slap yourself on a sunbed and slip into holiday book mode while appreciating the cute balconies from your shady retreat.
Bedrooms are nicely edited with all the key essentials: A smooshy bed wrapped in finely woven sheets, an amazing view to bask in some vitamin D goodness without having to leave your bed and of course, plasma screen TVs.
The kitchen - note the nice electric blue cupboards - marks another sweet spot in the house. Congregate here for a salad mash up and get some copas down you before heading out to a night spots, the best of which are right on your doorstep.
A healthy mix of sub-cultures makes San Diego one of the most interesting and varied districts in the city, something reflected in its diverse gastronomic offering.
San Diego is formed by 16 blocks north of Calle de la Universidad de Cartagena and west of Calle San Agustin and Calle de la Moneda and stretches to the Baluarte de Santa Catalina and the walls that protect the city to the north.
Architecturally the houses are smaller and were built principally for the military, artisans and clergy. There are fewer of the two-or three-storey holiday homes for the ultra-rich that characterize the centre and you will still find traditional families living in some of the more modest houses in this part of town.
After Cartagena's moneyed classes swapped the claustrophobic centre for expansive mansions in Manga and later Bocagrande and Castillogrande in the mid-19th century it took the renovation of the former Santa Clara Monastery, converted for the hotel chain Sofitel into the city's pre-eminent hotel in 1995, to put this barrio back on the map.
Colombia's farandula, or celebrity set, has since colonized San Diego including John Leguizamo who bought a place here after filming Mike Nichols' Love in the Time of Cholera.
