This was a colonial house that has been turned into a hotel. The rooms are large and have tablet enabled lights (my wife was very impressed - she bought the same when we returned home!). The location is in the Old City, and a walking distance from many fine restaurants. Carina and Farid at the Front Desk very very helpful... More

We could not have picked a better place to stay in Cartagena. From the minute we walked in we were treated like kings by Pablo and the rest of the lovely staff. The location, place, spacious room and delicious food are unrivaled. The small unexpected and personal touches of the staff were incredible and made the stay even more special.... More

Perfectly located at the south end of the walled city and close to everything. The hotel is just like the photos, maybe better, and the people could not be nicer or more helpful. Lovely little breakfast each day with fresh fruits, smoothies and eggs cooked to order, which we took advantage of each and every day. The staff was always... More

We loved our stay at Alfiz. What I noticed first was how friendly and helpful the staff was. Sally, Manuel and Pablo made us feel right at home. Our room was spacious (we had #7 a suite) tidy and beautifully appointed. The AC in the room was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity. The free wifi worked well.... More

We just returned from Cartagena and wishing we were still there!!! The staff at the Alfiz surely makes you feel welcome and they go out of their way to accommodate guests. We had brought some fruit with us and they kindly made juice for us to try. Breakfast was delicious with many choices and served always with a smile.

I was blown away by the staff at this hotel. Pablo and his colleagues went out of their way to take care of every detail. My husband and I loved our stay!
