With its awesome roof bar and really well-equipped gym, you need to spend your time during your stay here. Even you dont host here you should visit the rooftop bar sometimes. I never mention about its location. It is literally in the heart of the city

Just spent a week at the Charlee along with my husband, children, mother, brother and friend. In all, we had 3 rooms. The rooms were nice but small however the terrace makes up for the small room. The hotel is in the heart of Parque Lleras which is a plus as there is no shortage of restaurants and bars. It... More

Incredible gym over three floors with views over the city which is great for travellers looking to get in a workout. Hotel is located in the El Poblado district which is famous for its nightlife, so those looking to get a good night's sleep on weekends need to ask for the highest floors as possible. Good breakfast, there is no... More

ok, first of all..I am an International businessman that has stayed at hotels worldwide. I frequently stay at the Hotel Charlee on business. I recently stayed at the Charlee during July 2014 and I can honestly say it will be my last stay here. To say the customer service here is subpar is an understatement...It basically does not exist.

I have been too take a cup and enjoy this amazing view! The service was not very effective but it was nice to discover this modern place. They have a tapas and cocktail menu simple but not expensive for the location.

I stayed here last Christmas. Great rooms. Central location for bars and restaurants. The roof top pool and restaurant have a wonderful view over the city of Medellin. Just below that is where the hotel gym is located which is on three floors, it's a membership gym that hotel guests are allowed to use and has a great Spin schedule,... More

Stayed here for four nights in May. Great location, breakfast was amazing, friendly bilingual staff, gym is awesome, has a cool juice bar to use after your workout. Great views from your room. The rooftop bar and restaurant is exceptional the view from there and atmosphere is something you have to experience if you come to Medellin. Recommend this place... More

Don't fall for this overpriced trap. The Charlee is a hotel that aspires to be world class, but fails miserably. Priced three to four times higher than higher ranking properties in Medellin, the Charlee is well designed but poorly maintained. The staff shows a lack of attention to detail and customer service. The rooms are small, and the hotel is... More

We stayed three nights at this pleasant hotel. Excellent rooms. Extremely friendly staff. They offered walking us to a restaurant outside hotel at dark. We turned this nice gesture down as we felt safe walking on our own in this vibrant neighborhood. All personnel responded quickly to any request we had. They made us feel very welcome. On saturday night... More
