The hotel is in the heart of Cartagena city, steps away from the Gold museum, bustling markets and tiny shops bursting with colorful textiles.
Alfíz hotel is ideal for travelers who want local attractions at their doorstep. Fine dining is steps away, and major sites of interest, such as the Castillo de San Felipe, art galleries and shops, are all a short walk from this charming abode.
The restoration began for Hotel Alfiz in 2005 and lasted an exhausting two and a half years, before becoming the luxury boutique hotel it is today. In the centre of the historical district, it has great access to all the culture and evidence of bygone times in Cartagena you could wish for.
