The facility is charming but the quality of certain elements could be better such as the wi-fi. The staff is excellent -- friendly and capable. Breakfast is also excellent. The location near the clock tower and within the walls is great. It was an easy walk to everything within the walls including very good restaurants.

Great to hear that you enjoyed our central location close to the local museums and main attractions of Cartagena's old town. And thanks for drawing our attention to the Wifi as certainly one of our access points has been repaired today and now is working properly. We hope that you visit us back soon. More

Spent 6 nights here with 2 adult friends and 1 set of parents. Location is excellent and the building has been expertly revived. Use of antiques was tasteful and fitting for the history of the building and area. We had the "family room" and it was perfect for 3 adults. 2 bathrooms and a large open living room and kitchen...

We were so happy to find the hotel and book early. The two rooms we had we the best with balconies overlooking the street. This small boutique hotel was a home many years ago. English speaking staff very kind and helpful. A full freshly cooked to order breakfast is included with your room. The hotel is in the central area... More

The lead staff members speak excellent English and will quickly communicate during booking to help with typical needs, such as airport transfers and rental cars. (Thanks Pablo!) The location is pretty great — right by a big public square where lots of fun can be found, but not so close as to be within earshot. The hotel itself is very... More

Thank you for staying at Alfiz. We understand that communication is very important to our guests as they normally are for first time in Cartagena and need a lot of information we are glad to provide, so English speaking is a necessity to offer good service. Thanks again and hope you find back to our hotel in the future. More

We spent 4 nights at Alfiz. It was one of the best hotel experiences we have had. We are both travel agents and are always looking for a hidden gem. Alfiz went above and beyond all expectations. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend if staying in the walled city in Cartagena. We can't... More

Hotel Alfiz is a little oasis in the vibrant area around San Pedro Claver Church, the heart of the Old Town, it is peace and quiet after walking the throbbing streets of Cartagena. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the room is very clean with a huge bed and nice linens. There is a climb up stairs to rooms but... More

Thank you so much for reviewing your stay at Alfiz. Great to hear that you enjoyed our location close to all main attractions, and of course the effort of "the girls" in our kitchen to make you start the day with a fresh and nice breakfast. We hope to see you back soon! More

We stayed at the Alfiz Hotel Boutique for three nights this past weekend - and the four of us could not have been more pleased with the warmth and friendliness of the staff and the accommodations. The 300 year old building was completely renovated in 2008 - the eight rooms and 3 story building was a wonderful respite from the... More

Amazing service especially since there are only 8 rooms. We had room 1 which worried me as it was on the first floor, but it was relatively quiet. The room had the most amazing shower I ever had. Unique. 20 feet ceilings, exposed brick that looks like it is from the 16th century. Amazing stay.

The Alfiz Hotel was by far the highlight of our stay in Cartagena--with its old-world charm, ideal location, and incredible staff, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property to others. The suite is elegant and roomy with a lovely balcony, while other rooms have lofts dividing the sleeping area. As a gay couple, we were most impressed... More

With only eight rooms and relatively reasonable rates, we were pleased to discover the professionalism of the staff and the luxury of this hotel. The beautifully adapted 18th century mansion may be filled with lovely antiques, but it has perfectly modern a/c, bedding, and plumbing. Thus, you can imagine yourself in another century when Simon Bolivar stopped by to meet... More
