A small hotel with an appropriate level of amenities and an exceptional team of service oriented people. It was a good value so I would recommend it. We had an upstairs room and the only photo that is not exact is the balcony. It's rather narrow, filled with plants and nowhere to sit on an uneventful street. Otherwise, the breakfast choices were plentiful (fruit smoothie is yummy), the daily room cleaning was incredible and the helpfulness of a bi-lingual front office is invaluable. You can walk to anywhere or arrange a taxi as desired. I grabbed a book in the library, used the writing desk and enjoyed a cup of tea. The dipping pool can get very hot during the day but at times has a flush of cool water and shade. Tip: For US citizens who need a Covid test for re-entry, the hotel sets it up and you pay in cash.

Hotel's Favourite
A big THANK YOU to the crew at the Alfiz Hotel. Our stay there could not have been more perfect. Located in the center of the walled city, an intimate lovely space. The rooms are typical of a 17th century home full of history and authenticity. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a glass of thirst quenching Sangria. A perfect remedy for an incredibly hot day. We were escorted to our room that left us both in awe. Stone walls, traditional Spanish tile, and well situated furnishings made me want to know more about this amazing place. Breakfast was served every morning by a caring and friendly staff. Communication with this hotel was readily available on WhatsApp. I would send a message and get an IMMEDIATE response. The front desk staff were available to book any type of adventure with grace and genuine kindness. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Thank you for keeping the passion for hospitality alive and well. So many places fail miserably which makes this experience so important to me. You made our trip to Beautiful Cartagena so absolutely perfect. I hope to visit again one day and will of course be a guest in your amazing place. You are all beautiful people and I cannot be more blessed to have been in this place.

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting Cartagena. During that time we enjoyed the hotel’s historic charm but moreso the staff’s kindness and attention to detail. Additionally, Alfiz offers a wonderful (and generous) breakfast that should not be missed. Between the pool, the beautiful room, the garden, and of course the attentive staff, there was nothing else my wife and I could have asked for during our stay. If we ever come back to Cartagena, we will be staying here.

We loved this hotel. It's situation in the heart of the old walled city is perfect and it's full of history and authentic features. Our room was on the ground floor, right by the breakfast/courtyard area and close to reception (no.2 I think it was). Perfect and definitely not noisy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations, directions and sorting a trip for us. The glass of tinto de verano on arrival was a hit! We enjoyed the plunge pool and jacuzzi on the lovely rooftop terrace. Breakfast was delicious and it was nice to have a good cup of complementary coffee always available.

I just returned from Cartagena and a wonderful four night stay at the Alfiz. Cartagena is a vibrant and frenetic destination and the Alfiz was the perfect choice in accommodation. I have traveled all over the world and the Alfiz represented as good as it gets in terms of combining a secluded and sumptuous residence and a lively place where you want to be. I was particular impressed with the sense of physical and mental security of being inside the hotel walls combined with the energy and verve immediately outside. The staff, breakfast and service were all outstanding. I would like to particularly single out Reservations Manager Karina Garcia for the always welcoming tone and manner and the kindness that she showed. The temperature outside is indeed warm in Cartagena but so is the ambience inside.
