“Best Sleep Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

I give this hotel, five stars because of its location, service, and sleep potential.

My bf and I started our Colombia vacation here. The hotel is centrally located in one of the nicer parts of Medellin. The front desk is helpful and speak English well. They are attentive and will help you sort out activities. The breakfast buffet is good and its great that its included in your hotel price. We also had the best sleep ever here. Maybe it was the mix of mountain air, lack of sleep from travel, and excitement of beginning a vacation...I don't know but I do know we woke up refreshed every day. I challenge you to remember the last time you woke up refreshed!

We also felt very safe and comfortable at this location. The hotel is in an area that that you can walk easily. Also, the price was right. Not expensive at all considering where you are staying and what you receive.

We moved to this hotel from another hotel that was rival the house of horrors. This should've been our first choice. The staff is so helpful and dedicated. The hotel is in a perfect location, near several malls, restaurants, bars, and the metro.
I think the best part of this hotel is its restaurant; the food is outstanding, they offer typical Colombian, as well as more American options, the wine list is also very descent. Once again, this was a great place to stay!

Great stay at this hotel. Staff always very friendly and helpful. Great location on a street that feels like your on a busy Avenue in Paris or Buenos Aires. Very short walk to some of the finest shopping centers you'll ever find. Restaurants also nearby as well as a casino right next door.
Bed was comfortable, rooms clean, and morning breakfast delicious. The garden area for breakfast., lunch, dinner or Happy Hour was very desirable. Staff feed the birds at 4PM and that could get interesting with the bird species in Colombia. Concierge was excellent and went beyond providing great service. Everyone was just plain friendly and helpful. Great large hotel feel with entrance, lobby, side room for gathering, restaurant/bar.

Room Tip: Don't stay at Hotel Diez. Your back will thank me.

The hotel is perfect for business purposes. Great location near malls, restaurants and other hotels. Breakfast was great! The only thing i thought to comment on is that i would have liked for the staff to have explained to me, where and how to use the sauna and gym, since nobody told me about this and when I got there, there was no staff to help.

I got married at this hotel 2 weeks ago and don't have anything but praises for the staff in here! They make us feel welcome and the service during our stay was great! Alexander at the hotel was amazing getting everything prepared for us and arranging the pick up of 5 American travelers that went to the wedding in two different days! (Needles to say, my friends didn't speak this much of Spanish, but the driver pick them up at the airport and drove them to Medellin without any problem).

The rooms were perfect with almost everything you'll need....however, if you need to iron some clothes, you'll need to call the front desk and ask for an iron and a ironboard! The hotel offers buffet for breakfast and I couldn't have enough of all the fruits they have available! The only suggestion I have is that they need to switch to noise proof glasses, because in the morning you can hear a lot of street noise because of the location (Don't let you this small problem get in your way of booking this hotel). BTW, the newest Hard Rock Cafe is just across the street, so if you collect the shirts or the glasses you are in one of the best places in Medellin! Also, 2 blocks away (3 minute walk) is "La Strada", a new shopping mall with a whole bunch of bars and restaurants were you can go and eat and party till 3-4 AM!

I definetely will stay here again in my next trip to Medellin! Thank you to all the staff and employees at the hotel for making our stay a thing to remember!

The location of this hotel is the best! You can walk to Oviedo Mall (half a block), to Santa Fe Mall, 1 block across the street. This is a 5 story mall that I can compare to the best in the US. Across the street from the hotel they are finishing a Hard Rock Cafe that should be completed in a month.

The service. What can I say about the service but that it is the best. From the bellman, to the front desk staff, the restaurant and I want to give a special mention to Vilma Velez, their concierge. She goes out of her way to get whatever you need and is very friendly.

The rooms are nice, the breakfast excellent with lots of choices, fresh fruits, etc, etc.

I highly recommend!
