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...

I was planning to write this review for a while... we've been in cartagena for the first time and Alfiz was our choice after checking the reviews here. GREAT choice! 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...

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.

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....

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...

We arrived at Alfiz hotel in the middle of torrential rain storm and were greeted by friendly staff who quickly offered us a coffee or sangria. Both were great.

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.
