Stayed here on a business trip to Medellin. Hotel is well located and facilities are good, specially the rooms, you can really rest there. The hotel also provides nice areas for meetings and events, and a nice lounge to chill out in the evening, in case you don't want leave the hotel.

The hotel is located in a pleasant but distant area from the business area. The newly improved remodeled rooms are comfortable and modern just as you would expect but there are certain thing traveler should be aware. 1. The remodeling creates some shortages in amenities. The pool area was open but the changing area/showers/lockers/steam room and Sauna were not operating.... More

I really wanted to stay at this InterContinental Medellín in February 2014. However, at that time I had read so many terrible reviews here on TripAdvisor about harassment from the staff against guests, dirty carpets and sneaky overcharges, that I chose instead to stay in a friendly boutique hotel in El Poblado with modern decor, delicious breakfast included and an...

We can overlooke the small bathrooms, and the low mantainance, but the housekeeping is terrible!, at 3pm our room was still not cleaned, or half cleaned, when we asked the staff, they told us that was not their problem!,, And this was almost every day... Never again in this hotel chain

It's like going back in time, but not in a good way. Rock hard beds, judgemental staff, outdated. I imagine its the same when Pablo ruled the city, as it looks like it from the 70's and they didn't even maintain it. The room was like staying at a motel 8. I stay at IHG and have been a gold...

The Intercontinental Hotel of Medellin is a special hotel with a long history. In fact, it is one of the oldest high-end hotels of the city with a close relationship with the city’s history including during the terrible years of the drug wars.
