This hotel has a lot of charm and character, and a very friendly staff. It is located very close to several plazas and historic sites, as well as shopping and restaurants. The hotel was very helpful in arranging our transportation out of Cartagena, and we were very pleased with our stay.

We had a super stay at the ALFIZ Hotel. It was really beautiful in terms of the character and the staff. We stayed in the colonial room on the first floor and found it very comfortable. Everything was just right. The staff are all exceedingly friendly and helpful especially Pablo on the front desk. We enjoyed relaxing here in the... More

Alfiz Hotel is an elegant, small, charming boutique hotel located in the middle of Cartagena's lively and historic walled city. The location and service was wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. They arranged airport pick-up, quality tours and gave me great tips as to local restaurants and sights. Pablo and Manuel were always ready to... More

Location is fantastic, easy to go everywhere inside and outside the walled city. Breakfast is simply the best... a la carte with many, many options - fruits, bread, great juices... More

The service, the room (we had a suite), the breakfast, the friendliness, the advices, the location, the wifi, the transport from and to....etc. Everything was just perfect. The house has a lot of character and is a place to rest, read a book and re-energize. We did not used the swimming pool which is very small, a way to refresh... More

My husband and I stayed at Alfiz Hotel for a short holiday and everything was superb. It is a reverted old colonial house and the atmosphere was charming. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodated the guests to whatever they needed. Our room was cozy and the air conditioning was much appreciated since we are not used to hot climates.... More

We found this hotel through the recomendation of a Colombian friend and could not have been more pleased with the staff, service and architecture. This hotel is a gem within the historic walled city. The hotel is small and quaint and not to be missed. Also a great breakfast in the courtyard. Although not a gay hotel, we felt very... More
