this is a very small hotel 6 to 8 rooms maximum. the staff is very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast is good with choice of eggs prepared as per your selection. If you have any special dietary requirements they said to let them know at time of reservation. Ask for airport pick up to be included. I really loved the character...

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.

A boutique hotel converted from former house. Stayed in a room with a mezzanine floor for the bed. This was fine for us but the staircase to the bedroom might be challenging for some guests. Good breakfasts. Well run by Pablo. Most of the staff understood English.

Thank you for your comment and is a good point to explain our guests that the junior suites are in a split level form with a staircase to the bedroom, so if you have some difficulties to walk up stairs is better to choose a room on the first floor.

A bit late reviewing but we stayed here with our adult children for a couple of nights. The room was big and spacious. We had a loft bedroom which was very comfortable although the ensuite bathroom was a little small. The second bedroom was a little less spacious perhaps better suited to younger children but still comfortable. The hotel is...

The room I stayed in (la Conquista) felt like staying in a castle. The room was clean, the air conditioner worked wonderfully, but ultimately was too loud. It is right by the breakfast and dining area, so we had a lot of noise in the morning and could often hear people in the dining area throughout the day. The breakfast...

We were supposed to stay at the Alfiz hotel for 5 nights as part of the Cartagena etape of our tour of Colombia. We had booked a "lover's package", which included a few extras, like airport pickup. Once at the property, we found a lovely 300 years old mansion located inside the fortified city in El Centro area. The building...

It's a pity to read your review about your short stay in our hotel. I agree with you that is not possible to have a good sleep with a closely party, actually the noise came from a hotel’s terrace on the next block and unfortunately the sound was heard even inside our courtyard. The staff at front desk called the...
