A small, rather cramped but fully functional hotel. It is very well located in the bar and restaurant area of Poblado and not far from the city centre. At the weekends, this is a fabulously buzzy area, jammed with people enjoying a night out. The bedroom doesn't have enough space to throw all our kit about so we have to... More

First off, let me preface this review that I don't speak very good spanish, which is a problem in a country where english speakers are uncommon. Hotel Pros: -Great location in Poblado, short walk to Parque Lleras where all the trendy restaurants and shops are located. -Safe and relatively quiet area -Hotel had a great free breakfast -The housekeeping staff...

Stay here for the location, which is excellent! On a nice quiet street in the poblado. Room was just ok, but reasonably priced. Not the cleanest, and the AC was noisy and leaked a bit. Overall it was satisfactory for a budget stay in medellin. !

The previous reviews have covered the pluses of this hotel: excellent location, decent breakfast, very clean. And it's true that None of the staff speaks English and most are not very friendly. I wanted to call out that the single room #205 should be avoided. This room does not have window and this is included in the hotel info on... More

Stayed for five nights at this hotel. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here, I would love to come back and stay again. Each morning they serve breakfast which was a great option in the morning to start your day. it is located just off the main strip in Medellin, and should be considered one of the most exclusive...

Generally, this was a decent, clean hotel with comfortable beds, a good location, with a simple hot breakfast included. However, we did not like their guest policy. I booked this hotel online from USA for 2 adults: myself and a best friend coming in to visit some Columbian friends from her current residence in Panama. We figured Medellin would be... More

As someone who has traveled the world I am always surprised at how profound racism can be. I did not expect to find it in Colombia and frankly was shocked to find it in spades at this hotel. The night manager was about as openly racist as anyone I have met in my life. As a white American visiting with... More

I stayed 3 nights in September. This hotel has simple basic rooms but the bed and the pillows were very comfortable. I also enjoyed having a fan in my room. The wifi worked great in my room as well. The hotel is easy to get to from the metro by taking a short bus ride and then a short 2... More

Located a short walk from Parque Lleras (close enough to walk at any hour, but far enough that it was still quiet), with good restaurants even closer by. The double room was big, with two beds and a minibar. Wifi was very hit or miss, though, and the shower does run out of hot water if you take a long... More

I stayed five nights at this hotel in August, 2014. It is very close to good restaurants and a five-minute walk to Parque Lleras, yet it is in a very calm street so you will not hear any party noises. I stayed in one of the rooms next to the music school that other reviewers have mentioned, but I do... More
