Nice rooms, good restaurant, friendly service, an excellent BB in the city centre close to metro station. Can walk around without any security problem save late at night. Owner Lucas, clerk Jaceni, receptionist Laura and cook Tony always ready to help.

Very nice place, everyone is very helpfull: they do everything they can when you ask them something. The people working there are really pleasant and willing to discuss and answer your questions about the city. Moreover the rooms are big and really clean! Definitively a place where I would come back again!

This was a great stay, the hotel and staff itself are all top notch. The pictures don't even do it justice, this place is very clean and modern. The vibe is relaxed and laid back, you get to know the staff pretty well. There's a nice little rooftop with an amazing view. You can eat, drink and listen to music... More

Most hotels and restaurants in Medellin seem to be in the El Poblado area. The 61 Prado Guesthouse is about a 10minute metro ride away in an area near the university hospital and botanical gardens, and only a 5min walk from "el centro". I do not feel this location is a problem. In fact, it seems as a guest you... More

While staying in Medellin, my wife and I wanted to move out of the Poblano area and see a different side of Medellin. We also wanted convenience to attractions, safe accommodations, and a relaxed atmosphere. Prado 61 was just that. The staff that we engaged with were very helpful and friendly, the rooms were very clean and proper, and the... More

Pros: The staff are very friendly, the room is clean, the breakfasts are good and there's a lovely terrace. The bonus is also the restaurant that is open 24 hours and it's close to a metro. Cons: The main light in our room wasn't working, the room was a bit stuffy/smelly as there did not appear to be much ventilation... More
