Great service and warm staff that went the extra mile to help my family in our accommodations. Older building with some minor imperfections but clean. Simple breakfast buffet style, we love the pineapple and the coffee. We stay in room 711 and requested an extra bed on a superior standard

The hotel is really trying hard to be a "Grand Hotel". It is located in the downtown area, near many restaurants and commercial centers. You won't find too many gringos here at all, but if I wanted to be with gringos, I would stay home! It's totally safe during the daytime, and as all experienced travelers know, you must be... More

Steven_el_Gordo. As you could see, our location lends itself to be able to enjoy different tourist activities and entertainment. Medellín is a city that has people of different backgrounds and cultures, and exploring the city you can find from all continents.

This hotel is located downtown and a little noisy but not bad. The staff is great. The room is good, but not great. The breakfast was OK. The price was right. Sure, you can stay at a hotel for $200 a night, but why. For the money I liked the place.

I was so happy with my stay at Gran Hotel that I sought out the manager before leaving him to thank him personally. After a couple of my compliments, he joked, "Well, we're not a seven-star hotel!" The Gran is not 7-star. It's not even five. What it excels in is hospitality. I had arrived after checking out some prices... More

We stayed here for two nights and could recommend this hotel for the right price. On the plus side, you get a nice size room with black out blinds and a large shower.

Stayed for 4 nights, great service. Staff is really helpful and friendly, except for 1 guy but he was a little busy at the moment I needed him so that's fine I guess. Great food location is really convenient. 5/5 and I will probably stay here in my next visit.

The Gran Hotel is a great budget option in a city of expensive hotels. Of the options in this area you can pay more for much less. The rooms have Cable TV with some English programing and are nicely decorated, if a bit old. A hot breakfast is included. Not a lot of selection, but you can have eggs, toast,... More
