Lovely, lovely, lovely. For charm, beauty, tranquility, a calm oasis this hotel wins the prize. We had to privilege to stay three nights in this luxury boutique hotel. We were on the ground floor near the breakfast area and the room was large and so peaceful as is the entirety of the hotel. There are just 8 rooms so you... More

Alfiz was a terrific place to stay. Great location, good food, nice rooms and an extremely helpful and engaging staff. They made our trip really great. We also stayed at one of their other hotels Santa Ana and they were just as acommodating and wonderful. They let us return to the hotel, after we were no longer staying there, to... More

This renovated old home is lovely and special. Everyone was very nice and helpful, and the breakfasts were fresh, generous, and delicious. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms. As an old place with "character", there were some downsides: The room was configured as a loft, with the sleeping area upstairs (as such, I had to go down the... More

There were some really positive things about Alfiz -- the location in walled city, historic rooms and a generous, tasty breakfast. The room was decent but I found it quite dark and it was right in front of the breakfast area, which was a little awkward. However, there were a few things that really irked me and detracted from the... More

Thank you for rewieving your stay in Alfiz. We took your comment regarding the taxi service very seriously and discussed it with the staff, unfortunately is very difficult to respond as we have no relation with the taxi companies and there is no taximeter in the cars in Cartagena, so we get only estimated prices by phone or even when...

Tucked away in the historic centre, very close indeed to all the action but quiet inside and with a generally peaceful feel. A small pool and a rooftop Jacuzzi were welcome in the heat of the city. Pleasant downstairs lounge with fans and good wifi (wifi didn’t seem to reach upstairs), and owners who were always helpful, asking us if... More

Fantastic hotel. Beautiful room, great bed wonderful staff who manage to afford privacy, assistance and meet your every need. Only flaw was water pressure which made hot baths in the wonderful bathroom impossible, but it didn't bother us a bit. Hard to believe it could have been more enjoyable but fix the water and it would be.

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel. It is both centrally located-- in the midst of the restaurants, bars and activities of the walled city-- and yet quiet and peaceful, with a gorgeous and lush indoor patio on the first floor, small but relaxing pool and hammock on the second floor and jacuzzi with views of the city on...

Thank you for your nice words in your review. We feel very happy that you experienced a positive service from our staff, thats exactly the idea when you decide to stay in a small boutique hotel I guess. As Alfiz is located in a 300 years old colonial house some of the rooms are particularly facing the courtyard but this... More

The hotel classic setting is quite admirable and attractive. It is quite a charming place. However, the limitations posed by the hotel administration, such as the hours set for cleaning the rooms and serving the breakfast takes away the essence of hotel services. In terms of its infrastructure, it is quite disappointing that the pool does not receive direct sunlight... More

We stayed at the Alfiz Hotel for 6 nights, and it was just perfect. The building is beautiful, the rooms are big and lovely, the breakfast is incredible and the staff is very friendly! We think it's the best hotel to stay in Cartagena.

We stayed at the Alfiz for several days before Christmas on our first trip to Cartagena and found the entire experience to be wonderful. The hotel itself is beautiful. It's a classic building that has been refurbished to include air conditioning, television, wi-fi, etc. So while you have modern amenities, you get the feel of being in historic Cartagena, rather...
