Alfiz is a wonderful little hotel right in the center of things. Rooms are classic and comfortable and our every need was met almost before we formulated them. The location and rooms are very nice, but the true heart of the hotel (and i'm sure the main reason for all the great reviews here) are the staff. They were friendly,...

Alfiz is a delight. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the service is excellent, it is very comfortable, and so convenient for the historic centre of Cartagena. The breakfasts were good, tailored to whatever we wanted, and the staff made excellent cocktails. We felt more like we were staying with good friends than staying in a hotel.

This was a colonial house that has been turned into a hotel. The rooms are large and have tablet enabled lights (my wife was very impressed - she bought the same when we returned home!). The location is in the Old City, and a walking distance from many fine restaurants. Carina and Farid at the Front Desk very very helpful...

We could not have picked a better place to stay in Cartagena. From the minute we walked in we were treated like kings by Pablo and the rest of the lovely staff. The location, place, spacious room and delicious food are unrivaled. The small unexpected and personal touches of the staff were incredible and made the stay even more special....

Perfectly located at the south end of the walled city and close to everything. The hotel is just like the photos, maybe better, and the people could not be nicer or more helpful.

We just returned from Cartagena and wishing we were still there!!! The staff at the Alfiz surely makes you feel welcome and they go out of their way to accommodate guests. We had brought some fruit with us and they kindly made juice for us to try. Breakfast was delicious with many choices and served always with a smile.
