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

This is a really friendly, good value, well managed, well situated hotel. Reception, wait staff, housekeeping--they are on the ball and at your service in an upbeat focused way. We 'occupied' the place for a UN meeting in April and people helped the 45-50+ of us get taxis, get food, get around. Food and beer is affordable and fine and... More

This is a place of confort, good service and great food. I was At the Porton on february 14 and I can say that I will repeat the experience. The junior Suite was a very confortable room, the people gave a great service and the food was delicious. Maybe it lacks a pool. But the location is also a pro.... More

I have stayed in this hotel both for business and on private trips and so far it is my favourite in Medellín. Location is excellent - in the wealthy Poblado area and in close proximity to two up-market shopping centres (Santa Fe and Oviedo). It is also much closer to to the international airport (MDE) than other parts of the... More

Alot better choices in the area. Service is very poor and you can tell they do not like foreigners staying in hotel . If you are from the US - I would not stay there. The breakfast was average . The only good thing about hotel is the proximity to zona rosa area.

They have charged my credit card twice for the 1 week stay that i had. Now their finance team is not ready to take any ownership of investigating with their bank, as to why their bank has done two transactions. During checkout their Credit Card terminal was not working, so they swiped my cc using the manual machine. Totally un-accountable,... More
