“Service comparable to a 4-5 star hotel in US”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2009

I stayed at the Estelar Poblado Alejandro for two weeks during the December and January high-season.

Medellin lights itself up like a Christmas tree during these two months. The view along the river with all of the accompanying sights and sounds is terrific. The city lays out like a mosiac of color especially at night with the hotel's upper floors providing for great views.

I can not complement the hotel staff enough; you simply do not get this kind of service in the US except at the very best properties. We enjoyed two weeks of great Colombian, complimentary breakfasts and outstanding personalized service.

I hope that this hotel stays a hidden gem with the inevitable growth and prosperity that Medellin and Colombia deserve.

I highly recommend this property for pleasure or for business. The rooms provide free wireless internet and all of the amenities. And The hotel restaurant's menu of dishes are top-notch.

Well located hotel decorated in the minimalist style (no art on any walls in rooms). Comfortable well appointed rooms. Perky, eager to please staff (who may need more on the time experience.) Clean rooms, terrific rates, convenient and very safe location. Very good breakfast included in reasonable room rate. Every other floor has a fixed computer and color printer in the hallway for guests to use free of charge - great for printing your boarding pass, etc. Wireless internet free of charge throughout the hotel and it worked very well. I very much enjoyed the hotel. It is not luxury but perfectly functional and worked very well and just what I needed for this trip to Medellin.

  • Liked — Comfortable and practical and clean. No nonsense. Staff eager to please.
  • Disliked — no complaints but bizarre observation for a nice hotel - there are condoms for sale in the mini bar

Spent two nights at the Poblado Alejandria in Medellin and was pleasantly surprised. The friendliness of its staff, the welcome drinks in the lobby, the beautiful orange and brown motif throughout the hotel -- and great gifts for purchase in the lobby -- made this a highlight of my recent trip to Colombia.

The rooms are chic, comfortable, and have great views of the city. It's close to Parque Lleras, where Medellin's fab denizens hang out in open air restaurants and bars.

If you're an Avianca Plus member, you get points for each night you stay at the hotel...nice perk. Bkfst included, too...another nice touch as it's served in a very nice restaurant or outdoors.
