“Efficiency”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is not the newest nor the fanciest of hotels, but extremely efficient for business needs.
I stayed here a few nights and I was very pleased with the service and what was at hand.

There is excellent internet service in rooms and lobby. Also a small "business center" on every floor.

Super location in the city.

If you are looking for clean and extremely adequate place to stay, I would certainly recommend this hotel.

This is where I will choose to stay in Medellin for business trips.

The Hotel Poblado Plaza is well located in El Poblado, and is a few minute stroll to three different shopping centres. The area is upmarket and this is reflected in the shops and restaurants.

Our room, 313, was a very spacious room with twin beds, night table, large chest of drawers,flat screen tv, writing table and desk, and then a sitting area with a sofa and armchairs. There is a window that opens and block out curtains. The closet also contains the safe.

The bathroom has a bath/shower and toilet. Just outside is long bench with the sink, full range of amenities, hairdryer and the minibar.

The complimentary wifi worked well and there was a computer for guest use on each floor.

The furnishings are slightly tired, but then the rate we paid was low, so this was not unexpected. Our room faced the McDonald's drive through and this was busy for much of the night, so a room facing another direction would probably be quieter.

We ate dinner on the terrace at the Cafe and enjoyed our meal which was reasonably priced. The included breakfast was also served in the Cafe and a wide selection is offered: juice, yoghurt, cereals, cut fruit, eggs and other hot dishes, a selection of breads, and tea/coffee. One morning it was served on the terrace and the second, a rainy day, it was in the restaurant. The terrace was particularly pleasant as there is a small garden and a surprising amount and variety of birds.

Recommend this hotel for location and value for money.

the Hotel is nicely located close to shopping centres and restaurants as well as Hard Rock Cafe in a rather safe and nice area of medellin.

breakfast is simply great. rooms are spacious. personnel is very friendly and helpful.

Although directly at a main street, it is relatively quiet. fitness room available, swimming pool is missing.

I was here to present at a local university and wish that I had more time to explore Medellin. What a great city. On the up side for the city, there is always something to do. I took the metro to the cable car (still a part of the metro) and took the cable car up the mountain to the local nature park, but I digress. The hotel was clean comfortable and the staff was great. (good job by the door men and the wait staff in the restaurant. Wine choices and recommendations were good and the prices reasonable. I hope that I get to stay here again.

Room Tip: I vote for higher as better.

Stayed here for 1 night as the price was 50% off at booking.com. The hotel is fine, but feels a little dated. The wifi didn't work very well in the bedroom. There were lots of business conferences taking place during my stay, so it didn't feel much like a holiday hotel. Everything was ok, but nothing special

Went there for business. The staff is incredibly friendly. They are so polite and educated. The breakfast is fine and it is included in the rate. Is is extremely well located, close to restaurants, malls, etc...The hotel is not modern, it does need remodeling, but for the price, it was just fine.

This hotel has a good location, small but enough to conduct bussiness. Good internet, good breakfast, both included. People are really nice, good service, acceptable price. No good bar, but you can get your drinks fine on the cafeteria.
But the Gym, really sad, a couople of bikes (old), and no towels, etc. Need to up date soon.
