Medellin have two faces the smart nice areas around Poblado. This area can be recommended, try to find a hotel here. There are a lot of nice restaurants in this area. I was unlucky and had to check in in a downtown hotel. Althought Hotel Nutibara was very nice the area around the hotel was not so nice. I don't think there is a problem during the day but one need to be very careful during the evenings. Don't walk on the streets behind the hotel Nutibara there the unlucky people spend their evenings looking for food, drugs and maybe even worse someone to rob. I hade difficulties to find a nice restaurant near Hotel Nutibara! There are no doubts you will see a lot of suffering people in downtown Medellin
