The house that gives life to the Comfort Stay, Casa Logos, is one that has at least two hundred years of history, and that has sheltered the most diverse characters and anecdotes. The house originally belonged to Margarita de Brigard, matron who ran a lottery in the city and who associated with the spaniard Rafael de Castro, then owner of a barbershop on Calle Tablada, to increase the sale of tickets in the area. Neighbors still tell stories about how the duo sold hundreds of tickets per day.
On the death of Margarita and subsequently to that of Rafael, the house was left to the wife of Rafael, Delia Castro, and their five children. But Delia, dedicated housewife, and member of the Congregation of the Church Santo Toribio, was not sure of how to manage the house and family business and soon her brothers took charge. Of the children of Delia and Rafael, Mirtha, now ninety -one, remembers the house as a welcoming place, always full of friends and joy.
Mirtha lived in the house for over thirty years. As a child she went from her house to the school La Presentación, and then took a walk around the Portal de Los Dulces or Las Bovedas. She graduated as a nurse, got married and had children to whom she taught her love for the history and literature of Cartagena. Of the books she used to read, Mirtha remembers with great tenderness La Tejedora de Coronas of the author German Espinoza, because of the eagerness with which the main character, Genoveva, explores the places around Calle de Las Bovedas, where Casa Logos stands. Places as famous as the Hotel Santa Clara, which at the time was a convent, and Plaza San Diego.
Today, the grandchildren of Mirtha own the house. They, acknowledging the desires and preferences of the visitor of Cartagena, opened Comfort Stay, Casa Logos, as an alternative for a pleasant, comfortable, and exclusive rest in the city. Casa Logos has four rooms named after special stories and events surrounding the house, these are La Tablada, Bernabé, Genoveva and Bocachica, and offers breakfast, room service, Jacuzzi, and unlimited WiFi .
