This hotel is located downtown and a little noisy but not bad. The staff is great. The room is good, but not great. The breakfast was OK. The price was right. Sure, you can stay at a hotel for $200 a night, but why. For the money I liked the place.

I was so happy with my stay at Gran Hotel that I sought out the manager before leaving him to thank him personally. After a couple of my compliments, he joked, "Well, we're not a seven-star hotel!" The Gran is not 7-star. It's not even five. What it excels in is hospitality. I had arrived after checking out some prices... More

We stayed here for two nights and could recommend this hotel for the right price. On the plus side, you get a nice size room with black out blinds and a large shower. The included breakfast was well done and the restaurant staff were helpful and pleasant. On the negative side, the location is downtown but in a somewhat dangerous... More

Stayed for 4 nights, great service. Staff is really helpful and friendly, except for 1 guy but he was a little busy at the moment I needed him so that's fine I guess. Great food location is really convenient. 5/5 and I will probably stay here in my next visit.

The Gran Hotel is a great budget option in a city of expensive hotels. Of the options in this area you can pay more for much less. The rooms have Cable TV with some English programing and are nicely decorated, if a bit old. A hot breakfast is included. Not a lot of selection, but you can have eggs, toast,... More

Just terrible. Do not stay here. Location is ok. But there are MANY better options in Medellin. Place is old. They have not upgraded a thing ever. Beds were 30+ years old. Everything was. Most staff at the front desk do not speak english. Restaurant wasn't great, service was awful. Showers suck. Every hostel I stayed at this trip was... More

The building shows its age and the rooms are basic, but clean enough. Don't expect luxury but you will feel safe in the hotel. Breakfast was average, most of the customers you will see will be local business people or domestic tourists. Easy to access with the airport shuttle buses. Oner Ayan
