“Charming Hotel and Staff”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Perfectly located at the south end of the walled city and close to everything.
The hotel is just like the photos, maybe better, and the people could not be nicer or more helpful.
Lovely little breakfast each day with fresh fruits, smoothies and eggs cooked to order, which we took advantage of each and every day. The staff was always ready and helpful to assist with plans or directions or simple recommendations.
My wife and I stayed here for a week, using it as a base to explore other areas. The room was perfect, with a bathroom and seating area on the first level and a loft/bedroom and was decorated perfectly. We really enjoyed being able to simply walk back to our hotel from the city, or neighboring Getsemani or from the docks. Sun deck up top along with a hot tub as well as a plunge pool provided some additional amenities/places to sit and relax.
It is simply in a great area with great employees. Book this hotel with confidence. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: 2nd floor give you options for street front or a room that opens into the central open space. First...

We loved our stay at Alfiz. What I noticed first was how friendly and helpful the staff was. Sally, Manuel and Pablo made us feel right at home.

Our room was spacious (we had #7 a suite) tidy and beautifully appointed. The AC in the room was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity. The free wifi worked well.

I wish I could package Alfiz up and bring it home with me. :D

Room Tip: Room number 7 has a nice balcony overlooking the street.

We just returned from Cartagena and wishing we were still there!!! The staff at the Alfiz surely makes you feel welcome and they go out of their way to accommodate guests. We had brought some fruit with us and they kindly made juice for us to try. Breakfast was delicious with many choices and served always with a smile.

Room Tip: We had room No. 3 and the only comment I have is that because it is right next to the kitchen, there...

Thank you for your feedback it´s always positive. Nice to hear that you liked Alfiz, sorry to know that despite the special doors in the room you heard some noise. We will discuss it with the staff in order to minimize it. Greetings from Cartagena and come back soon!

I was recently in Cartagena, Colombia for four days and LOVED the place we stayed in; Alfiz. The staff could not have been any friendlier and more accommodating. They made us feel welcome and like family. The rooms were lovely and charming and clean. The food was delicious! Breakfast was in a lovely garden area; it was a beautiful way to start the day. The location of the hotel was perfect. To visit Cartagena, I recommend staying within the walls as we did. The hotel offered an unforgettable experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in a multi-level room (a windy free-standing stairway led to the second floor). Each room...

I was blown away by the staff at this hotel. Pablo and his colleagues went out of their way to take care of every detail. My husband and I loved our stay! The hot tub on the roof top and the lovely breakfasts by the garden- wish I was still there. The location was ideal and the staff's dinner recommendations were superb!

As in the my last stay hear a year ago, this is a great place to stay in the old city of Cartagena. Everything about this b&b is wonderful. the staff is great and very helpful. The breakfast cooked to you liking in a wonderful garden setting adds to the charm. I prefer the rooms to the suites as the bedrooms in the suites are on an upper floor. Every room is a bit different but you cant go wrong with any of them. They have a swimming pool on the upper floor. The staff will help to find places and get you to good restaurants.
This is one of my favorite. places that I have ever stayed

My wife and I just spent 1 week at Alfiz and only have good things to say. The staff was so courteous, helpful, charming. The room was spacious (we had a suite), comfortable - everything we wanted. Th e breakfast was always well prepared and served by lovely young ladies.The hotel was very quiet. There is an aerobics studio around the corner which at times we could hear, but inside the hotel no noise at all. Very good location. We were very pleased.
