We had an excellent 3 night stay at the Hotel Alfiz and can't wait to go back. From our airport pick up to the morning breakfasts and everything in between the staff went above and beyond to ensure our stay was fabulous. The location is perfect for all of the sites in the walled city, walking to shops and restaurants... More

We preferred a few other hotels to stay at throughout our traveling, but the location & service was fantastic here. It's conveniently located in the Centro neighborhood and in the dead center of all the fun shops & restaurants. Complimentary, top notch coffee at all hours of the day is always a nice touch in my book.

Cartagena is a tremendous place to visit but tourism is the big industry and you can often feel as much a walking business prospect as a welcome visitor. All the more reason to be grateful for the sanctuary of the Alfiz. Step through the big wooden door off the teeming streets into a small palace, cool, calm and characterful. We... More

Look no further- you can't go wrong at the Alfiz. Great breakfast made to order with veg options, really nice staff (say hi to Sally and Yorleidy for us!). They helped us set up transportation to Santa Marta and booked us a trip to an island for a day.

thank you for your nice words and of course Sally and Yorledy sends greetings to you as well! We always try to help with travel arrangements as sometimes we know can be very complicate and time demanding to coordinate it from abroad! Have a nice time! More

My experience after a 6-night stay at the Al Fiz was such that I am ambivalent about whether it deserves a moderately high evaluation or a low score. Without a doubt, the staff was kind, courteous and super-accommodating, and I had an absolutely wonderful suite at this boutique hotel in the walled city of Cartagena. I had a very pleasant... More

We wanted to stay in the old city area of Cartagena, rather than the resort area. Keep in mind that the hotels within the walls are boutique style hotels, and are not modern, ultra-luxurious hotels. But if you want a more authentic experience, conveniently located in the heart of the city, I highly recommend staying here. The staff here were... More

At first contact with Pablo, my husband and I knew that we were in for a great holiday! He responded promptly and frequently prior to our trip. We speak decent Spanish but until we were immersed, it was a relief to have Pablo, with excellent English, to reach out to! Not only did he accommodate our erratic schedule, he easily... More

Alfiz was clean, charming, and had friendly staff. Pablo, the manager gave great recommendations and also helped schedule activities for us. Manuel was another great asset to Alfiz. His services/recommendations were nothing but professional. The hotel has only 8 rooms which makes you feel like you have the whole place to yourself. This place was safe, quiet, classy, and absolutely... More

We were a couple visiting Cartagena and we stayed at Alfiz for 3 nights. Right from the time we checked-in till we checked-out and got on the taxi, the staff were wonderful, each one of them. When we arrived, we were given wet towels to refresh (it was HOT!) and were given a tour of the hotel property, which was... More
