Let's start saying that this hotel is generally speaking good and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Anyway it is a bit outdated and with little work it could just be great. Positive points: Friendly and accommodating staff Good breakfast Clean Negative points: Bad iron and small ironing board Defective safe Not environmental friendly (there is no need for a... More

This hotel is good for business travel with budget. It is not cheap but is close enough to office centers. It is kind of small for events but food was good. The room was nicely decorated and it was very clean. Most staff members have a true service culture. However it is too close to the highway and you hear... More

Good service at the restaurant, especially breakfast and staff is friendly and helpful. However, rooms and ambients look old for a five stars hotel. Everything is expensive for what it is and compared to other hotels that are in the same area. They were going to charge me $10 dollars for a pair of slippers arguing I broke a seal... More

Very well placed hotel in the area of La Milla de Oro of El Poblado, nearby really good restaurants, malls, and the 'cool spots' of the area where the locals hang out. The hotel is very well kept even though it has many years since it was built. Its employees are very friendly and available at all times. They also... More

The hotel is very old. My room was totally different to the ones that you can see in the webpage. The first surprise that I had is that the bed sheets were not so clean... The bathroom had a window facing the street that had not been cleaned for months. This hotel is very well located close to main attractions... More

Excellent service makes this nice hotel a great place to stay in such a nice city. The restaurant has amazing food and rooms are good and clean. Across the street from the Santa Fe shopping center which is excellent if you are looking into normal transnational brands. Good internet and tv and a ok gim makes it a good deal... More

I was in a business trio and wasn't even paying for my stay myself, but seriously, they charged me $20 for a shower slipper. Which hotel in the world charges for this? They told me I could take it home, why I would? I didn't bring it home. They said there is a price at the shower slipper bag -... More

We stayed 3 nights. The rooms and location are ok but the rest of the ammenities (restaurant, bar, gym, no pool) were disappointed. It is more for business visit. We visited the Dann Carlton hotel and we consider that is really a 5* hotel and its the same price of Porton Medellin.

This was a business trip - stayed 6 nights. The sleep room was small but very adequate and good location on the top floor, staff, meeting facilities were very good including nice, tasty lunch. For our purposes this was a good place for the meeting and we will strongly consider returning next year
