    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

    El Gran Hotel is recommendable if your intention is to stay in the downtown section of Medellin know as "el Centro". The hotel is well situated, a quarter of a block from the main Av. Oriental. Being so centrally located expect the street noise. The hotel is a bit dated, rooms are clean, bathrooms supplied with the basics, nothing fancy,... More

    Gran Hotel is the best hostelry in this immediate neighborhood, amongst the larger hotels. Clearly, the Gran was intended to be a first-rate facility when it was constructed. Obviously dated, it has aged well, although the entire place -- furnishings and all -- is a time warp back to the Kennedy Administration. Staff is motivated and takes pride in the... More
