Nice hotel in great location. Close to good restaurants in a safe neighborhood. Great value. Large and clean rooms. However, impossible to use the gym. Always incredible hot! I made the reservation based on that and was very disappointed.

This is a Best Western/Comfort Inn type hotel in Medellin. Noisy from the street noise and poor insulation so rooms are noisy as well. Someone watched TV the whole night in the room next door..... Restaurant on 11th floor breakfast buffet is basic, when windows are open and TV on bring your headphones! There have to be better option in... More

Room is large, but air conditioning is noisy when you're trying to get some sleep. Breakfast is really good, however do not expect lunch / dinner services - you need to order from some restaurant nearby. Location is excellent, just around the corner of Santa Fe Mall.

I have stayed here twice on business. I'm usually a Marriott or Hilton fan, but I was told to stay here while in town. Overall, I feel that you get a good clean hotel along with good value for the money you spend. I've stayed in much worse places that cost me a lot more than the bh did. The... More

We stayed at the BH for 2 nights as we entered Medellin. The first impression was quality, service, and luxury. We were greated with english speaking staff and were offered juice upon our arrival. The room was large, modern, clean, and sophisticated. Normally we stay in hostels or B&B's and this was a great change of pace for us. There... More

Never ever accept a room facing the main avenue. The noise becomes unbearable. Rooms lack proper ventilation and bathroom is a tiny simple box. Comfortable bed yet with the noise was impossible to sleep. Hotel pretends a lot, offers little. Breakfast is mediocre. Front desk staff is unwelcoming. Happens often in Medellin : bellmen, cleaning ladies, returant are happy, smiling,... More

Great location. Rooms are standar and comfortable. Staff is very helpful. Not a fancy place but very good for a business trip. The hotel only offers breakfast, but there are many options at walking distance.

I need to chose this place as there were no Marriotts in Medellin .. Its a small clean hotel but too much for 110 USD a night .. If you are here for Business , and you are a person who irons your dress the same day for business, then you should let them know you need a iron box... More
