Alfiz Hotel, Cartagena

The herringbone brick floors and the ancient mosaic tiles give you the sensation of antiquity. They’re the sort of floors that make you want to slip off your sandals and feel the patina of centuries beneath your feet. Red and white decorated arches recall the Moorish architecture of Spain’s Alhambra. Flowers and vines entwine wooden ‘Juliet’ balconies overlooking the courtyard. Wooden shutters seal cool rooms against the midday sun.

If you’ve ever wandered past a picturesque, colonial style mansion and wondered what it would be like to live in, this is your opportunity to find out. Make sure Alfiz Hotel is on the itinerary of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Colombia and you’ll be staying in the heart of Cartagena’s walled city, in one of its most picturesque houses.
