“They Bill you for "security"”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Nice, clean hotel. But at the end of my week stay they billed me 250,000 pesos, approximately $150 USD, for among other things, "security." My friend stayed the night in the hotel with me twice, they charged 30,000 pesos each time, plus they charged her for a breakfast she did not eat, plus security. They charged each occupant a security fee. Needless to say, ask upfront that all charges are included in the price of the hotel. They also bill you for water use! Stay away from those thieves

Dear Guest: We lament your comments, but we want you to clarify that you are called “safety”.
It corresponds to the additional charge by Hotel Assurance, Wich It’s clearly specified as: not included in the fare; in section “policies and fees” from the web page where you did your reservation.
Your reservation was for two people so any people should be charged in an independent way.
Our fare for additional is for $40.000 COP with breakfast included. If it is consumed or not, it depends for each people.
The water that you are talking about corresponds to the canned water, wich it is a product of minibar wich has a charge.

Great location on the Pablado strip and adjacent to La Strada with its' collection of bars and restaurants. Spacious room with a small kitchen and while they do not offer a gym, they provide you a pass to a nice facility which is 4 or 5 blocks away. Great staff and a terrific breakfast. All in all a very nice experience. Only negative is the noise from La Strada though that can be minimized with a room facing the rear.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2009

I went to Medellin in the month of June, 2008 and my company had booked me and my colleagues in Hotel Leblon. Leblon is right in the center of the city in Medellin's uptown area called El Poblado.

Staff here is very very cordial and warm. You could ask for anything on this earth and they will do their best to arrange the thing for you. Most of the staff doesn't speak english but the receptionists do speak a lot of english. You can route your orders through them and they oblige every time.

Rooms are good with a big nice balcony though there's not much of a view. Try to opt for the room on the side away from the main road as rooms towards the main road can get a bit noisy during the day because of the traffic. Every room has an attached pantry stocked with utensils, microwave, hot plates, etc. etc. Infact the pantry is big enough to be called a kitchen only and not a pantry.

The only thing I did not like about the hotel is that the rooms are not well lighted. They appear slightly dark which is ideal for a honeymoon couple but not for a business traveler and the bathroom would have been much better with slightly more space. They did provide a wireless internet connection but the speed was not all that great.

No idea about the cost as the company paid :)
