We were supposed to stay at the Alfiz hotel for 5 nights as part of the Cartagena etape of our tour of Colombia. We had booked a "lover's package", which included a few extras, like airport pickup. Once at the property, we found a lovely 300 years old mansion located inside the fortified city in El Centro area. The building...

Having been to Cartagena before, we were thrilled to read the outstanding reviews of this boutique hotel in the heart of the old town. The reality was even better. As other reviewers have noted, Pablo, the manager, is the most wonderful host and fluent in both Spanish and English. He (and the rest of the staff) couldn't do enough for...

Hidden behind a large wooden door, the hotel is a cool and calm retreat from the music and hawkers that fill the streets of the old town. The staff couldn't be more accommodating and the breakfasts are excellent, as is the free coffee in the study. The rooms are large, cool and airy and the location is ideal.

Alfiz was right in the center of Centro in the walled city – so the location can’t be beat. As soon as you walked out – you were already there, ready to explore the walled city streets of Centro (where we were) or Retiro on the NE side, or Getsemani on the south side – or walk the walls themselves...

My wife and I checked into the Alfiz after the air conditioning in our AirBnB broke. We could not have been happier. The service was exquisite - we especially appreciated the glass of sangria delivered to our room upon arrival. And the breakfast was top notch and delicious! The room itself, despite being located in the center of the city,...

And found an Oasis! Having missed our boat to the island we decided to stay at the closest hotel we could find to the docks. We showed up like a couple of dusty wanderers and found Pablo at the door. He checked us in and found us a room for the night at most reasonable price. When we saw that...

Really nice room and we felt good value for Cartagena. Nice pool and really friendly staff. We got the last room left which was actually on the ground floor but would have happily stayed there again but the hotel was fully booked. We would definitely go back.

It was a shame that you couldn't stay again with us, but we hope you enjoyed your short stay. As suggestion for next time we recommend to book in advance with at least 15 days as we normally are very full, but of course you can always try our last minute rates!

My boyfriend and I just spent four nights at the Alfiz Hotel and absolutely loved it! This eight room boutique hotel has very courteous staff who happily assist with whatever requests you may have.

My girlfriend and I spent a very relaxing four nights at the Hotel Alfiz in September. The hotel is located in a quiet street just a short walk from two of the city's main squares (Plaza de Bolivar and Plaza de la Aduana). There is a little shop next door where you can stock up on bottled water and other...
