“5 star B&B with a great host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

If you are fortunate enough be visiting Medellin, which is a truly wonderful city, then the best place to stay will be here. Forget Poblado and stay here and experience the real Medellin not the tourist version.
The B&B is beautiful and super clean .. incredible design including stunning furniture which the host has made himself. Everything here is 5star* .. from the decor to the A.mazing breakfasts to the location and of course to host Vivien's hospitality (which is how I wish every B&B host would be!)
The energy in the house is relaxed and peaceful and, at the right times, it can be fun and energetic. Vivien is on hand for any request you have in order to make your stay comfortable, he is eager to help and to advise you about this city which he loves .. he can assist you with information on everything from local supermarkets to day trips out of the city to which bars to visit. His love for this city is contagious, I for one, never wanted to leave! I booked for 4 nights and stayed for 3 weeks in 2 different rooms. The water room and the industrial room. Both have their advantages.
One of my favourite things about V.A.G Ensuites is the location, you will be living amongst the super friendly locals (away from the tourist traps!) and yet you are still so close to everything. The metro stop Industriales is an easy 10 min walk away. You can easily visit all of the sites and of course you can find other tourists if you should so desire. There is a lot to see in this city and it was a delight to return "home" to the B&B at the end of the day to a beautiful environment with a really lovely host.
I cannot recommend this place more highly.
I will be back!

Room Tip: Great views of the city from the "industrial room" which features a (super cool) round bed...

I went to Medellin on vacation and stayed at a very nice modern apartment which is set up as a bed and breakfast,the price is very reasonable...every morning we woke up w/fresh juice and french press Colombian coffee,thanks to the owner...and upon request he will make you French omelets or even Crepes...Vivian speaks three languages so he is well versed to take care of all your needs...the owner Vivian was a great host...as he showed us around the city,gave recommendation's on places to go and visit,restaurants to go and more...Vivian was a great host...the apartment is set in a quiet little,old world style,old little village setting...complete w/catholic church which rings it's bells every morning to remind people in the village to come to church....also it's great to be able to shop from mom and pop type stores within walking distance of your apartment...every day vendor's came by as well to sell their fresh produce...I felt safe the whole time I was there

Room Tip: higher loft has more fresh air...but is a little noisier due to traffic outside

I found VAG on the Internet as a place to stay while I'm visiting Medellin. What I got was priceless, The townhome is owned by Vivien and is set up as a Bed and Breakfast. Vivien treated us like family in his home visiting from out of town, showed us the places to go, inside tips on how to get there and what was good and what was not. I feel as if I have a life long friend in Vivien. He speaks fluent English, Spanish and french and is a native of France, one of the most remarkable young men I've ever met. He took me grocery shopping, showing me all the ins and outs. The rooms were clean and the neighborhood is wonderful with many places to eat , dentist across the street, clinic 2 blocks away, pharmacy around the corner, small family restaurant 2 houses down serving wonderful traditional Columbian food, and believe it or not, an Italian restaurant 3 blocks from townhome. Cabs are very accessible for those longer trips to great destinations in this marvelous city. And Vivien knows them all. If you are considering visiting Medellin, you have to stay at VAG, it's the best of all worlds.
