I really enjoyed my experience in Colombia at a very nice hotel with excellent service and meals. Located in a perfect location for exploring Medellin with lots of things in walking distance. The staff was extremely helpful with their knowledge and great personal service. Pretty much soup to nuts in what a hotel should do to make your stay extra... More

Great hotel two blocks from carretera 70. Staff was friendly and helpful. Close to many bars,restaurants and discos. Outdoor seating. Free breakfast. Rooms were small but quite well done.if you want a local experience this area is for you. Unlike the Parque Lleres which is geared to tourist, the carretera 70 area is the real Colombian experience. Would highly recommend.

Very nice and clean hotel, located close to a grocery store, bakeries and the metro. Staff was extremely helpful. They are nice, friendly and think ahead to accomodate every possible need. Breakfast was good too.

The folks here in service and super nice. The hotel is extremely clean and with the addition of the new side with larger rooms is just right. Ask for a larger room with 2 beds even if you're single because its affordable and I was in one of the tiny single rooms before that were extremely small.

First, please be aware there are 2 hotels in Medellin with similar names- the Hotel El Porton de San Joaquin and the Porton Hotel. The first (subject of this review) is located in a quiet residential area near the football stadium, while the second is a 5 star hotel near the more upscale shopping district. I've noticed several reviews that... More

Very modern hotel, with quite a clinical feel. Service was good. Room I had was quite small, shower was small & door to shower opened inwards (ie. wrong way!) due to bathroom being so small. Had two night there are found noisy hotel - despite asking for quiet room.

Wonderful modern hotel with very helpful and welcoming staff. If they don't speak English they really try and put an effort to it to help you find your way as well in the hotel as around it in the lovely city of Medellin. The hotel relays in a very nice bit more quite than down town location of the city... More

As mentioned in other reviews, the rooms are much smaller than they look in the photos and have windows to the aisle. I felt a bit claustrophobic and needed the air-con the whole time. Setting the fridge under the bedside table was not a good idea because there is a continuous noise right at your side at night. On the... More

I enjoyed the wonderful service and location. The room I had was small with no outside window but I honestly didn't mind. The staff was patient, friendly, & accommodating. The breakfast offered more than enough choices & our waiter was excellent. The room service was an excellent value and they even brought us up fruit plates & coffee for free... More

There is a lot to dislike about this hotel. A matter of taste is the black and white interior with pure white lighting, horrible to me. You won't have an exces of space in your rooms and windows are not see through to have a view outside. What is worse, is that there is no proper maintenance. I have repaired... More
