Cartagena has a wide selection of hotels. El Centro, the Walled City, has three large hotels in restored convents and monasteries that offer five-star accommodation and services, and several dozen world-class boutique-hotels also have sprung up, offering luxury accommodations in restored 17th- and 18th-century houses. Additionally, there are a variety of bed-and-breakfast and hostel facilities in Centro and in the adjacent, newly gentrified neighborhood of Getsemani—the best location if you're keen on sampling the nightlife. In Bocagrande and El Laguito are a number of international high-rise beach hotels, but distances here dictate that you'll spend considerable time to-ing and fro-ing in taxis. Availability can be scarce Christmas through mid-January and during Easter Week.
