If the idea of gutting a colonial house of all its glory and filling it with strip flooring and double glazing brings a tear to your eye, then you can unite with the owners of Casa Piña, who would never do anything of the sort.
Lovingly re-mastered with a fresh lick of paint, wicker furniture and some fancy looking plants, Casa Piña maintains the illusion of Getsemani's diamond in the rough’ colonial status by not shaking its original foundations too much: the mosaic tiles and beguiling alcoves are very much intact and the rooms aren't full of useless pomp and clutter.
Simple, clean with all the essentials: a comfy bed, lots of natural light and just enough tropical touches to remind yourself you're in the Caribbean, it's all too easy to catch 40 winks after a day discovering Cartagena's postcard perfect streets.
This house is a laid-back luxurious shade of what Getsemani is all about. It's a two floor bolthole with a sense of community (lots of shared bathrooms and spaces) and boutique, intimate intentions.
Admiringly, it packs a lot into just two floors. 6 double bedrooms, thanks to extra beds hidden under the bedstead ,can sleep up to 20 people, which is perhaps most believable when you are in the house’s grand common spaces, cleverly elongated by high alcoves.
Prepare some freshly squeezed OJ in the well-stocked kitchen, hang out on the upstairs terrace, a stone's throw away from the lively Plaza Trinidad, and plan your holiday itinerary, There is almost too much to pack in when you're staying in the dreamily located Casa Piña.
Cartagena's second historic walled city has gone from no-go to must-go in less than five years thanks to some of the city's hippest new bars and restaurants.
If Centro is Manhattan, Getsemani is more Brooklyn – an up-and-coming hipster hangout trying desperately to cling to its roots. It's regularly referred to as the coolest neighborhood in Colombia and has featured in some exalted lists as one of the world's most interesting places to visit.
A little rougher around the edges than the already gentrified districts of Centro and San Diego and the lofty ambitions of the beach districts, Getsemaní offers a glimpse into the more unruly historic centre of the past.
A fiercely traditional barrio offering a heady mix of bars, dancing, affordable diners, hostels and hotels for backpackers and bohemian colonists looking to mix it up with the carefree locals.
Historically populated by merchants, smugglers and freed slaves thriving from activity in the port and main marketplace, Getsemaní has always been more raucous than the hoity centre with all its regal airs and graces.
Much of the district's newest bars, follow in the city's loudest traditions.
The fantastic mix of roots and laid-back bohemia has attracted the attention of a string of leading travel publications including Conde Nast Traveler, Wallpaper* and the New York Times.
While much of the area's carefree population are direct descendants of the hell-raisers of yesteryear it is no longer the terrifying place that rich Cartageneros used to scare their children into staying at home.
Backpackers, never averse to roughing it for a cheap place to stay have braved the bogeyman with few problems for decades and a growing number of boutique hotels and hostels have followed their lead setting up shop in some of the bigger properties on Calle Guerrero and Calle del Carretero.
Uber-hotel chains like the Four Seasons have plans to kick the barrio into the stratosphere with stellar openings in 2021.
Some of the best restaurants in the city have now set up shop in the counter-cultural epicenter of Cartagena. Celele and La Cocina de Pepina are two standout options for foodies and Cafe Stepping Stone serves up the city's most popular brunch.
