“Great option for business in Medellin”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

The Medellin Royal is associated to the Radisson chain. It is about 4 years old, thus very modern yet not luxurious. The hotel is on "El Poblado" neighbourhood, about 45 minutes from the Airport, near a mall, business buildings and walking distance to the "Milla de Oro" street, which has nice restaurants and shops; therefore an excellent location for a business stay in Medellin.

The rooms are overall very good size, with flat screen TV, a large closet and a desk with ethernet cable. My room was on the 7th floor with a nice view to the city and the mountains. Wi-fi is available on every floor and complementary at the lobby, and I always got very good signal. The bathroom layout is interesting as the lavatory sink is outside, with large mirrors, whereas the toilet and shower is on the room. There is no bath tub, which may be inconvenient if you are travelling with toddlers.

The restaurant is located on the second floor on an open area looking to the pool and although a bit small terrace, it does provide a good vibe to start up your day. I did not dine there, only had breakfast which offered a good mix of fruits, cereals, arepas, bread, juices, etc.

On the second floor there is also a small gym, open from 5 am to 10 pm, with a couple of elliptic machines and treadmills, weights and 3 spinning bikes. I was there in December and found the room quite hot, although I was the only one on the room. They also provide very small towels and in limited number, so I just got the last one available. Besides the gym there is also a Spa.

The best thing about this hotel is their staff: they are all very helpful and welcoming, always smiling and very friendly... many of them speak good English and are open to give suggestions and help in any way possible to all the passengers. Another great feature is that the hotel offers 2 complimentary drinks (beer, wine or juice) at the bar, every day from 5 pm to 7 pm which gives you a great way to refresh after coming back from work...

Overall I had a great experience at this hotel and I highly recommend you to stay here. It definitely is my choice for business trips to Medellin.

Room Tip: I stayed here in early December and as such, a couple of Corporate parties were thrown due to the Ho...

Highlight by far is the helpful nature of the staff. Desk, restaurant, bar, event coordinator all very helpful. Most spoke English well, if they didn't they tried very hard with a smile or got someone right away that could help.
Great atmosphere, lots of small lobby areas to visit after the meetings. I would say maximum number of people for a meeting would be about 60. They went out of there way to make it a great experience for our guests.
Room service is good, and breakfast in beautiful weather by the pool every day is a plus.
Very convenient to other places you would want to visit.

I've stayed at multiple hotels in Medellin over the past several years and I can say that I think this is the best business hotel in the city. Located in the Poblado area directly behind the new Santafe shopping mall and only a few hundred meters from the discotecas at Riosur, the location is excellent and within walking distance to various additional conveniences such as grocery stores, cinemas, etc. The lobby is clean, new and impressive and the front desk team is always helpful and friendly, hotel management also excellent, notable security presence but not overbearing. As in all hotels in the Royal chain, there are laptops provided in the lobby for guests without their own computers as well as a printer, which can be helpful for printing boarding passes and so forth. If you do bring your own computer or iPad, the entire hotel has good wifi coverage, free for guests to use. Another nice touch is that just off the lobby there is a nice green courtyard for guests to enjoy, a nice space to get some work done on your laptop or have a glass of wine (hotel guests get two free glasses of wine or beers during the hotel's daily happy hour from 5-7 pm).

The rooms are immaculately clean and modern. Probably the most comfortable beds in Medellin, perfect pillows, not too hard. Big flat screen TVs. Good-sized desk space for business travelers to spread out computers, papers, notebooks, etc. Nice hot showers, overhead rain-style shower spray, fluffy towels. All rooms seem to have a nice view with big windows overlooking beautiful green Medellin. I never tried the room service but there is a complete menu for those want to grab a bite at the hotel, likewise the minibar is fully stocked with anything you could need. Likewise, if you forget a toothbrush or shaving cream or whatever toiletries, the hotel has these items available for guests.

Guests have free breakfast included on the second floor by the poolside. A full buffet-style spread including fresh fruits, juices, meats, cheeses, cereals and eggs prepared as you wish.

This is by far my favorite hotel in Medellin and probably in all of Colombia. The service, quality and attention is on par with any four-star hotel in the world. This hotel is great for people travelling on business or with their families. I have nothing but great things to say about the Medellin Royal.

This hotel harbored us after a car crash on the way to Medellin from Bogota.

Upon arrival it was like an oasis in a desert of mind boggling events that we had recently passed through.

The staff had been exceptionally friendly and the rooms are stylish and comfortable.

Room Tip: Higher the better and at the end of any corridor to lessen the noise.

The hotel is really well located, just a few mts to malls (santa fe, oviedo, la estrada, rio sur), gyms, bars, restaurants and the "milla de oro".
The bad thing is the noise you can listen to the cars even from the bathrooms, I had to change my room and it improved but after that I listened to all the conversations of the room neighboors in my floor. Also they didnt have iron table or iron in the room I had to ask for that.

If you dont care about the noise (when you travel for business I think it matters), the rooms are ok, small but really clean and the beds are a little hard but for me that was perfect. The services is excellent and the breakfast compared to other hotels is really nice, all kind of fruits (not only papaya and the same ones).

The swimming pool is in front of the dinning area and is not so wow (I wouldnt recommend for vacations) , the gym is really really bad, but if you are going for a log stay you can pay Body Tech which is located in Riosur and it is walking distance from the hotel.

Taking out the part of the noise I think I'll recommend it for bussiness travelers although there are others in the same zone where you dont have to "climb" to come back to the hotel from the avenida el poblado.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that are not noisy.

This was my first trip to Medellin, and the hotel was selected by my hosts. Really a good choice, with all you can expect. Due to the mild climate you may even open the windows. The pool and outside restaurant offer an excellent setting. What I liked most was the open-air gym adjacent to the restaurant...
