This hotel is right across the largest and newest mall in Medellin (Santa Fe Mall). And if you get bored of this huge mall, there is another one at a 3-5 min walking distance called Oviedo. There is a 24 hour supermarket 2 min away. The included breakfast offered many options and after a week I never felt bored of... More

It was just an ok hotel. I have stayed in better places in Medellin. Although I really liked the free breakfast full of tropical fruits and the friendly front desk staff. I would come back if the rates were a little lower.

We booked the room at 9 am the same day we were gonna arrive. We booked through the webpage, filled in the info about our arrival time, got an email confirmation etc. But when we arrived (1 am) apparently nobody knew we were coming, they hadn't received our booking, and the night-receptionist told me they had absolutely NO available rooms...

This time I stayed at total of 9 nights. The Hotel is undergoing renovations as it was in 2012. It is an older hotel and is in the process of getting upgraded so it may not suit some at the moment. For those visiting Medellin it is a short taxi drive to Parque Llera which is a main cafe /... More

I don't know if I was at the hotel for a complete eight hours. For this my review is only first impression. Lobby looked like stepping into the eighties with a a fresh coat of paint. Rooms where updated with all the commodities but in a strange way. Breakfast was very good and service was great. Not my first choice... More

Rat in my room, i would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Hotel looks nice from outside but so dirty and bad standard. Hotel staff was not even nice, they tricked me with laundry and i ended up paying a sky high check for a 0,5 kilo off laundry .........."..................................................

This was an excellent choice and I am very glad I stayed here. Knowing no Spanish, they had enough staff available to make sense of my English. The breakfast was included and very good; included made to order omelets. WiFi was easy to connect to and provided a good signal. The staff went through everything I needed to know and... More

This hotel is very nice and has great service. The front desk staff is always ready to help. The rooms were nice, a bit small but well equipped with mini bar refrigerator and snacks. Also very clean. It does have a spa and offers massages and facials at a reasonable price. The price of the room was a bit high.... More

Our group of five ordered three different types of dishes, three punta de anca each of which was different and each bad. All had little taste, two tasted somewhat spoiled. The french fries that accompanied the dish were under cooked and also without taste. The fish was burned outside. The langostinos were heavily breaded but poorly fried and tasted of... More
