Alfiz Boutique Hotel is located in the heart of Cartagena. A former smuggler's house, and then the British Consul, each of the eight rooms are dedicated to a specific period in the history of Cartagena.

Alfiz offers a very personalised service and makes for an excellent base from which to explore this charming city. Only breakfast is served although there is a wide range of bars and restaurants nearby. If Carl (the Swedish owner and historian) is in residence, he will fascinate you with the history and stories relating to this very old building.

Why we like it

We simply love Alfiz for the personalised service and its dedication to the history of the house and city.  The library is bursting with books on the history of Cartagena and the owner is delighted to share the hsitory of the house with its guests.
