The hotel is in a great location in the historic center, close to great restaurants and shopping. It's character cannot be matched and we loved everything about the place, especially the unobtrusive and lovely care the staff took to make sure we had a great experience. Our week went by way too quickly and we would love to return some day.

Hotel's Favourite
I can’t say enough about this magical hotel! It is quaint, charming, and in the absolute best location to explore the city. As a solo traveler during Thanksgiving, I felt like the staff was welcoming and caring, offering a personal experience from the moment I walked through the door. I was given some great suggestions on restaurants as well places to go for the best sunset. As I was in Cartagena during the pandemic, I was grateful to see that the hotel was 100% mindful of sanitation and cleanliness during my entire 4 night stay. Masks were always worn and hand sanitizer and shoe cleaning agents were present every time you walked in the hotel. I was especially grateful that the hotel upgraded me to the most marvelous suite with a bathtub bigger than I’ve ever seen! Breakfast was made to order each morning and was delicious. All in all, I really enjoyed every moment of my stay and cannot wait to return to Cartagena and the Alfiz!!

The lovely Alfiz Hotel is in the heart of the Walled City and the location couldn't be better. Once you are allowed entry to the building, you enter the tranquil oasis that was our home for three nights. There are lovely common rooms - both indoors and outside. There's a garden right next to the breakfast dining area and a small plunge pool on the second floor. On the rooftop, there are three small sitting areas as well as a hot tub. The rooms themselves are all unique. Ours was a small room on the first floor with 15 ft ceilings and a tub in the main room. The toilet did have a door, but not a roof (walls were 8 ft tall) so make sure you are comfortable with your roommate! The staff was wonderful and accommodating especially since we were there when there were Covid-19 restrictions put upon tourists. Despite that, we felt welcome and well cared for. If I had to be quarantined anywhere in Cartagena, this would be the place I'd choose. It would be even more wonderful in "normal" times.

Thank you for your warm words in this hard time for the tourism branch and especially for our small boutique hotel. You were probably one of our last guests this month after we have been forced to close "the oasis" in the old town. We are convinced that we will go through this catastrophic situation and it will be better soon, in the meanwhile we hope that every guest or future visitor to Cartagena can postpone their travel plans instead of canceling, so keep your dreams to visit us alive!

This hotel is a real gem, located in a quite street near the Cathedral and very central within the Walled City. It amused us to be given the room Pirates because we used to live a couple of miles from El Pirate Francis Drake’s House in UK and visited it regularly! The rooms are uniquely decorated in traditional style and very comfortable and quiet. The open bathroom at the end of the bedroom was quirky but convenient. We had a warm and friendly welcome and immediately felt at home in this oasis of calm in a hectic city. The small pool and many sitting areas throughout the hotel were much appreciated. We were also grateful for the facility for topping up water bottles. Breakfast was superb with a good selection of fresh juices, coffee, fruit, bread and a choice of eggs (and arepa and pantalones). The staff were always on hand to give useful advice on restaurants to help with travel arrangements and to open the front door on our return. Our special thanks to Pablo, Valeria, Jenefer and the rest of the staff for contributing to a most enjoyable stay. Unfortunately we only stayed for 3 nights, next time we visit Cartagena we’ll be there for longer!

What a coincidence about Drake and the Pirates room, and your closeness to his house! The idea of the rooms is just this, to help our guests to connect with the amazing history of Cartagena and invite them to discover it! Thank you for staying with us and hopefully you can stay longer next time!!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It was absolutely the best! The location is perfect, in the heart of the old walled city. It is very quiet, with only 9 rooms. We felt totally safe, the front door is always locked, and we would leave our key at the desk whenever we went out. The rooms were very comfortable, and the little pool was a bonus for a little cool down in the hot afternoon. Breakfast was delicious: with fresh fruit, juice, and eggs. The staff were the best. They were all so friendly and attentive, always willing to assist with whatever we needed. Absolutely superior! Without a doubt, we would highly recommend this hotel. Thank-you for such an enjoyable stay! We hated to leave
