I have stayed in this hotel both for business and on private trips and so far it is my favourite in Medellín. Location is excellent - in the wealthy Poblado area and in close proximity to two up-market shopping centres (Santa Fe and Oviedo). It is also much closer to to the international airport (MDE) than other parts of the city. I would recommend booking the airport transfer with the hotel which gives you a better car as most taxis in Medellín do not have seatbelts readily available for passengers.
For my business trip I stayed in one of the rather spacious premium rooms with a pretty view and huge TV.
The restaurant is well worth dining in - they even had a food-themed week while I was there. Wine selection is with a distinct Latin American focus and what I liked was that all the bottles were on display in the restaurant which made the choice a little more involving. For breakfast I can recommend the omelettes made to order while you watch. They definitely taste better that way!
Business infrastructure we also used on two occasions. There are 2 or 3 different rooms available and the staff was very responsive to each and every demand we had in preparing it with the client dinner a memorable highlight.
My suggested improvements would be:
- change the wifi system such that it there is no auto log-off after 30min (speed is good otherwise)
- have a bureau de change available in the lobby (not an issue really as there is a bank right next door and several others in the shopping centres but would definitely be convenience factor)
Overall I had great stays and am looking forward to the next one. Definitely recommended.
