Can anyone recomend a reasonably-priced hotel (ie US$50 or so) in central/old town Cartegena (I have trouble walking too far). We'll be there for probably 5 nights (in late Jan/early Feb) so anywhere which will offer discounts is particularly interesting.
I have been following your question waiting for more answers since I will be there in mid-March. Let me know how it goes! I've been looking at the hostelworld.com site with some luck.
I stayed in Getsemani, there are a lot of hotels with good price. It is not so far to Old Town either but I find Getsemani more funny. Old Town was nice but more genuine or how to say it was in Getsemani especially at night. Old Town was more like museum I would say.
