My first impression was that the Poblado Plaza had known better days; it still retains an air of past elegance. But by modern hotel standards, the furniture, the toilet and a few other things, now appear a bit outdated. However, by breakfast the next morning I had already adapted to the Poblado's quaint charm. The hotel is set in a valley surrounded by large green mountains and on the top floors there is a view of the Poblado area of the city; a safe location of Medellin, with large, excellent shopping malls, a very large bookshop (which I loved), banks , good restaurants, and other urban facilities. My room was clean with a large comfy bed and flat cable tv., where unfortunately few international channels are available. The reception staff were all smiles, as was the chef and waitresses in the restaurant with its charming outdoor garden, where there is a plentiful buffet serving delicious Colombian breakfast. There are many things to enjoy in Medellin, in my opinion one of the finer cities in the world, in spite of the unfortunate reputation that past drug-related violence have created for it. This includes exciting tourist sights, locals that are civil (something I have come to treasure in my travels), as well as very good looking and vibrant teens. A knowledge of Spanish is an advantage, especially when visiting cultural attractions such as the Botero Museum.
