This hotel is one of the nicer in Medellin's El Poblado district. The rooms are well appointed, though a little dated. The pool is very nice, with private cabanas available and cocktail service, a must for me. Room service was good and prompt. The breakfast lacked a little to be desired but it does not effect my rating. This is... More

I just spent the past 10 days here on business. After reading the reviews, I was very concerned. Luckily, everything was lovely! The hotel is undergoing major renovations. My room was on the 6th floor. There is hardwood floor instead of carpet. The bathroom is lovely and the shower is very good. The staff is super helpful and very friendly... More

This is a very nice hotel in Medellin, probably the best one. When I arrived, due to my platinum status, I was assigned a Suite which was large and comfy with two different areas, a living room and an separate room. All the furniture was up to date, nothing old, the bed and the pillows were firm -as I like... More

This property has made a 180 degree turn from last time I stayed here. The rooms have been worked on, and they show! It's a pleasure to arrive at a property that has been in the city forever and enjoy all the improvements that are taking place. Service is excellent! Having said that, there is really not an appropiate location... More

Hotel is nice but overpriced for what they have to offer. They maintain a little army of security by the door lobby i like security but this guys monitor your every move if you come in and out. Overkill as the area is safe and they feel more like they are watching you not how I want to feel

The conference was scheduled at the Hotel InterContinental Medellin. We made arrangements to spend our entire week staying here… The first day of our arrival our driver drove past the hotel… as you drive down the hill (Calle La Palma) there is no way to make a left turn into the hotel entrance. It is necessary to drive farther west,... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The hotel is in great condition, clean, and comfortable. We were here for a conference and pleasure. The rooms were normal size, nothing special, but clean, well maintained, and comfortable. We had issues with sufficient towels for the 2 of us, but requests were promptly met. The hotel amenities were fine... More

Medellin is a great city. This hotel is fantastic to take advantage of the best of this city. It´s conveniently located as it´s near most attractions, but not that close that you feel overwhelmed. It has a nice view, and a great pool. I have spent many weekends with my family here and I always find it the best option.... More

It is a classic giant hotel built some years ago. The service is great! Like a truly 5-star high-level hotel. My room was huge! The bathroom and the furniture are pretty old, but overall I felt pretty comfortable while in there. By the way, the bed is huge! There was one severe problem in the room: it smells smells musty....
