Stayed one night in a large, well-decorated, street-front, balconied suite with a gigantic bathtub, extraordinarily high ceilings and evocative lighting. The next evening's smaller room (The Pirate) was just as well done and, again, had a huge tub. Breakfast is made-to-order. Staff is superb. Admission from the street is gained by ringing the doorbell, so there's no sneaking in or...

The location is about a hundred meters from the clock tower which is a great place to pick up a taxi IF you want to leave the walled city. But, you could probably spend a couple nights without getting a taxi because there is...

I just loved Alfiz Hotel. Friendly staff with the best welcome. A great room and comfortable bed. Lovely facilities with a plunge pool just what we needed in the heat. And so well located we could walk anywhere. I would stay here again.

Alfiz Hotel is a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the old city in Cartagena. The rooms are comfortable, the public areas are peaceful, the staff and service is impeccable. I was traveling with my 13 year old niece and we felt so at home with Alfiz Hotel.

We had a total of 4 nights here, with a break in between to go to Mompox. This hotel is just stunning. The staff are really friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.
