We planned a family trip to Medellin to spend New Year's Eve... we were a big group, 21 people all in all, of different ages, ranging from 9 to 80!! We booked 8 rooms in advance, as it is usually high season. The hotel is located in a very nice, central and safe location of Medellin. It is connected to a shopping mall, Oviedo, which also has a supermarket, so pretty convenient to stroll around whenever you have the time. It is also on walking distance to the Santa Fe Mall which is much bigger and short taxi drive to El Tesoro Mall, which was the best of the ones we visited, too bad we went there only for a couple of hours on December 31st, as it closed early...
Breakfast was varied and very good, and included the typical breakfast items (omelettes, fruit, cereal, bread, natural juices, etc.) but also a variety of Colombian dishes, which was nice.
There was a pool and jacuzzi on premises which was great for kids, they really enjoyed it.
Even though we chartered a private bus for most of our trips, we never had a problem taking cabs right from the hotel, they are always available upon request.
Free wifi is very good and there are also 3 computers located in the lobby should you need one, you can use them also to print your boarding passes, and there was no charge for that. A nice touch is that they have pitchers of cold water with different fruits in them, as well as coffee all day at the lobby, it was always nice to come back to the hotel to a nice glass of iced strawberry, orange, grape, or lemon water (to name a few of the flavors).
I found rooms to be comfortable, we personally stayed in a double room, which had 2 beds, one for us and one for my two kids... beds are a little on the small side, but comfortable. Air conditioning works nicely and there is a small fridge which was nice to keep cold drinks we got from the supermarket downstairs.
My only complaint will be that if you shower during "peak" hours, you might not get enough hot water... it will come and go, which was a little bothersome, especially with kids.
But all in all, I will highly recommend the hotel.
