Breakfast is included, no varations the same thing everyday. Close to two fair priced maĺls. Local food can be fond around, walking distance and cheap compare to the basic restaurant in the hotel that is beneath average.

This is a good hotel, with the right quality-value relationship. It is conveniently located, close to two big shopping malls and also very close (a short cab drive) to Plaza Mayor, Medellín's Convention Center. The rooms are big and bright and have all the basic amenities. Breakfast is included and they offer a good variety of fruit, juices, breads, eggs... More

The location is very good. Cross the main street, there is a mall with movie theatre and nice food court. About 6-7 minutes walk, there is the big San Diego Mall where the airport bus & Combi arrive & depart. About 10-12 minutes walk is the metro station. Nothing fancy about the hotel, but the facility, breakfast and service are... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. We took a bus from the airport and had a short walk from the bus station to the hotel. There are two malls near by and the subway station is at walking distance. The staff is very friendly. As for the taxes, they actually refunded us some of previously paid taxes because we... More

I was born in Colombia and now I have US citizenship, I thought I was going to be charged the infamous tax that everybody is talking about in the reviews. Specially, since the entry stamp is always put in my Colombian passport. It came to be that I was not charged that tax. I think the hotel staff has finally... More

When my group has booked this hotel I've came to tripadvisor and started reading all the stories about the Tax Scam Scheme comments from previous foreign guests who took the time to write on Tripadvisor... so even though I was aware of-it I've decided to give them the "benefit of the doubt". We've check-in late evening taking 4 rooms. During... More

Well-kept and near to malls, this hotel is quite nice. Good value for money (relative to other places that I stayed). Stayed there only for a conference so I can not say how well its location is to sightseeing but staff are pleasant and buffet breakfast is quite substantial (compared to the N America) and complimentary. My Spanish, at that... More
