The rooms and staff were the best and the location can't be beat. Great breakfast in the morning. The staff does speak English. I will be back!!! This place is the location for you if you are into the history of a beautiful city. Staying in the walled city is great if you want to walk and see the sites.

We were a couple visiting Cartagena and we stayed at Alfiz for 3 nights. Right from the time we checked-in till we checked-out and got on the taxi, the staff were wonderful, each one of them. When we arrived, we were given wet towels to refresh (it was HOT!) and were given a tour of the hotel property, which was...

I stayed at Alfiz with my husband on our first stop in our Columbia trip and we were so impressed with he service that we didn't want to leave! The location is central in Cartagena and they treat you like you are their favourite guests here. Breakfast is delicious and became one of our favourite parts of our stay there....

This is a nice well located Boutique Hotel. I Considered it quite expensive because once you get your bill there are several add-ons that appear at check out that were not upfront presented (Taxes, tips, etc. ) Rooms could be more comfortable. The Hotel is an old CAZONA with a Central Patio and rooms around it in 2 levels. They...

Thank you for sharing your impressions about Alfiz. I would like to inform that there are no hidden add-ons as you mention, the total cost of stay is normally detailed in every online booking. Foreign guests are exempted of VAT tax, but subject to a tourism fee. In Colombia tips aren't mandatory so it's up to everyone to decide if...

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 staff was amazing! I can't think them enough for making our trip a milestone memory. 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.
