The golf pro working on premise ripped me off good! An agreed outing for $150 ended up costing me $250!!!! When u complained the manager gave me a $35 credit. The hotel is also very old and not near to anything and you have to pay extra to have a guest stay over!

Medelllin is a stunning city and this hotel nestles on the mountainside on the main route to/from the airport, 45 minutes away. It's a standard Intercontinental with large clean rooms, good wifi, friendly staff, poolside restaurant and bar as well as a decent gym. There is very little by the way of Colombian culture - except for the occasional hummingbird... More

Good hotel but disappointing. I've stayed at other Intercontinental Hotels and we were at the Medellin property for 2 nights starting Aug 10. Hungry and tired when we arrived. Told $179 a night for standard room. Went online and found same room for $120 a night. Slow checking us in even by colombian standards. 5 people there and several in... More

I attended a meeting in Medellin during the week of the Flower Fair . The hotel was beautifully decorated with flower arrangements all over the lobby and ground floor. The staff was very helpfull and courteous . The checkin process could be better and quicker. The rooms are older but have been renovated , extremely clean and good pillows!! .... More

Stayed overnight. Check-in was efficient and front desk was very helpful throughout my stay. Front desk staff spoke English well. The decor in the rooms is a bit outdated but very comfortable. The room was clean and well maintained. The hotel restaurant and bar have good facilities and selection. Best of all was the gorgeous pool and it was a... More

The hotel is comfortable and has good service. Breakfast was nice. The location is not the best for shopping, dinning, or bars. The hotel and rooms are very old and it certainly doesnt live up to the intercontinental name. Would not stay here again.

The hotel offers a very nice restaurant by the pool, the menu has a good variety and the food is very good. Breakfast buffet is also very good. Rooms are quiet and fairly new. I found the service to be good and the staff friendly. Value for price is good.

This is my second stay at this hotel. The first was in 2009. It is on the main road into town, about 30-40 minutes from the Intl airport. Upon entering the lot, you can tell it is dated. It looks tired. The lobby isn't so bad, but it is still dated. There is a restaurant on the main floor but... More

This hotel is not a tourist friendly hotel. I think it;s more for a business client. The hotel pool is locked with a fence and the hotel lobby bar is closed most of the time after 9pm. Don't expect English speaking front desk personal all the time. I was there for 1 week and had many problems.

I have been in several 5 stars hotel, however, Intercontinental Medellin is giving less than your expectations. The rooms are not new, the window of my my rooms was broken and it is not fixed although I called twice. The carpets were also looking old and dirty. You can not get that 5* quality feeling in this hotel. The breakfast... More
