I just loved Alfiz Hotel. Friendly staff with the best welcome. A great room and comfortable bed. Lovely facilities with a plunge pool just what we needed in the heat. And so well located we could walk anywhere. I would stay here again.

Alfiz Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the old city in Cartagena. The rooms are comfortable, the public areas are peaceful, the staff and service is impeccable. I was traveling with my 13 year old niece and we felt so at home with Alfiz Hotel.
