I was incredibly grateful to get a room here during the height of Feria de los Flores. The staff is excellent and warm. The rooms are clean and comfortable, if not luxurious. Best of all, the hotel is located near the epicenter of Medellin's super hip Poblado and Lleres neighborhoods. Highly recommend if you're looking for a room in this... More

I stayed here for two weeks whilst working in Medellin. The two rooms I was in were comfortable and clean, shower pressure and temperature could vary. One had a good patio and balcony on the seventh floor with good views of the city. A minibar was present if needed. Breakfast was ok, cereal, fruit, juice, eggs and selection of carbs... More

Hotel quite modern and quite. I had a good stay and appreciated the location. Very close to many restaurants and bars. Personnel is attentive and at your disposal. Prices are acceptable and I recommend it if you pass by Medellin.

Initially, I was turned off, because like another reviewer, I arrived and was told they didn't have my reservation. I'd booked on Travelocity and showed the email to the woman behind the desk and she was basically like "I see this, but it's not in my computer soooo..." I should mention, I'm not fluent, no where near, but I speak... More

After receiving a warm welcome from the reception team, we have been escorted to our room by a very professional lady. She explained to us the amenities and answered our questions. We had a beautiful balcony and a very comfortable bed! The room was perfectly clean and we could feel the attention of the team. For breakfast, we had the... More

We had to cut our previous hotel reservation short because the place was no bueno, but this hotel was far superior! The hotel is overall very clean and polished. The room was clean, the bathroom immaculate and the hallways and elevator were just as clean. I'm not sure what one of these reviewers was speaking of, but our A/C has... More

way too expensive for what is offered. staff is friendly and rooms are really clean, but the whole room smelled of the cleaning chemicals - which is bad because you will find no room in this hotel, in which you can open the window (air circulation = 0). breakfast included - nothing special (rather greasy). You'll find way better options... More

I have a list of complaints. Stayed here for three nights in November. My biggest problem was the lighting. There are tiny canned lights in the ceiling and I could not read in the room or do much of anything else. Way too dark. Asked for a lamp but never got it. This lack of light finally chased us away.... More

We made our reservation via expedia.com. Upon arrival we were told that they do not have our reservation since the hotel is not associated with Expedia and never received payment nor a confirmation. This while on the reservation printout it is stated that we do not need to confirm. Anyways, told the not so friendly receptionist that this was not... More

The hotel is located in Provenza of the El Poblado area, close to all the lovely cafes, restaurants and shops in the area. Everything was walking distance in the Provenza area, making it very convenient. I stayed in Hotel Acqua Express for 2 nights. There is nothing flash about the hotel or its decor but it is modern, clean and... More
