                Photos don't do it justice”

                I am a Travel Agent and I have travelled the world and this property might well be one of my favorites bar none. It is not just the fact that the house itself has so much history and magic, but every detail has been considered: the antique furniture, every piece carefully selected, service is stellar without being "stuffy" and there is no luxury per se, but every corner of this property is simply charming clean and full of love and care. The breakfast was UNBELIAVABLE. You feel at home, in an oasis of tranquility right in the middle of the historic city. Will come back and highly recommend.

                Really great location in a Spanish style setup that really complemented the feel of the city. If you're looking for modern digs, look elsewhere. The rooms, staff, and small touches make the stay worthwhile.

                The best spot in Cartagena”

                I don't usually leave reviews but I have to say that my stay at the Hotel Alfiz was probably one of my best hotel experiences, be it a boutique or chain hotel. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They helped us with directions, bookings and even a police report we had to file for a stolen iPhone. The establishment was quiet, most likely due to the fact the property only had 8 rooms but it was impeccably maintained and located in the heart of Cartagena. I can't recommend this hotel enough and am so glad I found it. I will definitely be back!

                We absolutely loved Alfiz Hotel. We even extended our stay 2 more nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel had so much character, and the staff were very friendly and truly made you feel at home. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool, in the hammock, and in the rooftop jacuzzi, and the air conditioning in our room was a welcome break from the heat of Cartagena. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough!

                Location, Beautiful Hotel, Friendly and English-Speaking Staff

                With only eight rooms and relatively reasonable rates, we were pleased to discover the professionalism of the staff and the luxury of this hotel. The beautifully adapted 18th century mansion may be filled with lovely antiques, but it has perfectly modern a/c, bedding, and plumbing. Thus, you can imagine yourself in another century when Simon Bolivar stopped by to meet his friend the house's owner, Sir Watts, without sacrificing any of your creature comforts. Right in the heart of Cartagena, there could not be a more convenient and safe location. Breakfast is generous and delicious and served with flare. The small pool was a luxurious addition perfect for escaping Cartagena's heat. This hotel is in high-demand, and we ended up with the room which opened up right beside the breakfast area. However, by the third night of our stay, the hotel was able to move us to a more private 2nd floor suite, at no additional cost. Thank you, staff of Alfiz.

                Location is superb, the building itself has character and the staff is top notch.

                My stay was outstanding. When I see hotel photos online I assume I'm seeing a selective, highly edited version of the hotel and that the actual experience will be a little less than the photos indicate. In this case the in-person experience far exceeded the photos. It was one of the best hotel experiences I've had anywhere ever.

                La mabilida de su personal subalterno.

                Excelente ubicación dentro del casco histórico y excelente la amabilidad y diligencia de su personal subalterno, no así del gerencial.La habitación que reservé era en dos niveles,con una escalera sumamente incómoda para trtansitarla, especialmente en la noche. La ducha es abierta,dentro mismo de la habitación, detalle promiscuo, agravado porque también el recinto del inodoro está inserto en la habitación, sin ventilación propia.Todos estos importantes detalles no se mencionan ni aprecian en la página de Agoda, ni en la del hotel.Solicitamos el cambio a una habitación de un solo nivel, cosa que el personal amablemente nos concedió, señalando que su costo era menor al convenido por la "Suite Junior"(??)Posteriormente el Sale Manager, Karl Sandrock, desconoció esta circunstancia y, entre otros argumentos, manifestó desconocer el portal Agoda.com a través del cual hicimos nuestra reserva y del que sí reconoció haber recibido el pago!!

                Photos don't do it justice”

                I am a Travel Agent and I have travelled the world and this property might well be one of my favorites bar none. It is not just the fact that the house itself has so much history and magic, but every detail has been considered: the antique furniture, every piece carefully selected, service is stellar without being "stuffy" and there is no luxury per se, but every corner of this property is simply charming clean and full of love and care. The breakfast was UNBELIAVABLE. You feel at home, in an oasis of tranquility right in the middle of the historic city. Will come back and highly recommend.

                Really great location in a Spanish style setup that really complemented the feel of the city. If you're looking for modern digs, look elsewhere. The rooms, staff, and small touches make the stay worthwhile.

                The best spot in Cartagena”

                I don't usually leave reviews but I have to say that my stay at the Hotel Alfiz was probably one of my best hotel experiences, be it a boutique or chain hotel. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They helped us with directions, bookings and even a police report we had to file for a stolen iPhone. The establishment was quiet, most likely due to the fact the property only had 8 rooms but it was impeccably maintained and located in the heart of Cartagena. I can't recommend this hotel enough and am so glad I found it. I will definitely be back!

                We absolutely loved Alfiz Hotel. We even extended our stay 2 more nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel had so much character, and the staff were very friendly and truly made you feel at home. We enjoyed relaxing by the pool, in the hammock, and in the rooftop jacuzzi, and the air conditioning in our room was a welcome break from the heat of Cartagena. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough!

                Location, Beautiful Hotel, Friendly and English-Speaking Staff

                With only eight rooms and relatively reasonable rates, we were pleased to discover the professionalism of the staff and the luxury of this hotel. The beautifully adapted 18th century mansion may be filled with lovely antiques, but it has perfectly modern a/c, bedding, and plumbing. Thus, you can imagine yourself in another century when Simon Bolivar stopped by to meet his friend the house's owner, Sir Watts, without sacrificing any of your creature comforts. Right in the heart of Cartagena, there could not be a more convenient and safe location. Breakfast is generous and delicious and served with flare. The small pool was a luxurious addition perfect for escaping Cartagena's heat. This hotel is in high-demand, and we ended up with the room which opened up right beside the breakfast area. However, by the third night of our stay, the hotel was able to move us to a more private 2nd floor suite, at no additional cost. Thank you, staff of Alfiz.

                Location is superb, the building itself has character and the staff is top notch.

                My stay was outstanding. When I see hotel photos online I assume I'm seeing a selective, highly edited version of the hotel and that the actual experience will be a little less than the photos indicate. In this case the in-person experience far exceeded the photos. It was one of the best hotel experiences I've had anywhere ever.
