Reviewed April 16, 2012

Located in Medellin's El Poblado area, this hotel is clean and elegant. It is mainly used by businesspeople and therefore does not provide amenities such as a swimming pool or room service. It is labeled as an "essential" hotel - meaning it only provides basic services. However, they do provide a lovely breakfast and light dinner. We found it very calming and pleasant to eat on the balcony off of the small dining room. The room itself was very large, clean, and in good shape. Our room was on the 10th floor with spectacular views overlooking Medellin. There was always natural light coming in through the window! The WI-FI worked well and there is a small business center near the lobby. They have a printer which is great if you need to print important papers such as boarding passes. The location is fantastic - the road going up to the hotel is a bit steep but it is very close to Avenida El Poblado. The hotel is also very close to 2 large malls, Oviedo and Santa Fe. Anyone who has travelled to Colombia probably knows that a shopping mall is a safe place to use an ATM and is an important venue to have nearby. I would definitely return to Estelar Blue!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the very top of the building have amazing views!

I stayed here with my mom for a couple nights, and it was a great hotel. Very clean, very good service, and a nice breakfast. They offer a light dinner as well, which is very unusual to have included in the price of the stay at a hotel. We didn't eat dinner there, but it consisted of sandwiches, salad, a drink, and a dessert. The hotel's also walking distance from Poblado (about 10 minutes) and located in a very quiet area of town. We walked to and from Poblado after dark, and felt safe. Some of the hotel staff also speak English, which is convenient to have as well.

I recently stayed at the Estelar blue in Medellin with some friends. The hotel is very nice and comfortable, rooms are clean and tidy. However, for two days I requested wake up calls and they called me late, 25 to 30 min late, Making me and my friends late for an excursion. Hotel staff offered their apology but it was late for the inconvinience caused.
The information provided at the front desk was innacurate. We asked one day in advance for turibus scheddule and they confirmed timing and prices and when we arrived to take our tour there was no service. I was very dissapoiented. Lack of information at the front desk is a major issue.
Restaurant satff is very friendly and the breakfast and light dinner was delicious, quality of food is fantastic.

I stayed several times (in Colombia) at Estelar hotels (a great local chain) and all were excellent. The Estelar Blue in Medellin is perfect location-wise, has fantastic service, free wifi, breakfast and even a light buffet dinner, and huge, modern and very quiet rooms.

The staff go out of their way to help with everything (they copied tons of pages for me at no charge, among other services), rooms are large and great for both business travelers and tourists, and the price is very good (around $100/night all inclusive). Location in the Milla de Oro and just off Avenida El Poblado, a short walk to Oviedo mall and Santa Fe mall, banks, offices, supermarkets etc. A safe and easily walkable area.

Medellin is a nice city - my favorite in all of Latin America in fact, and not a typical latino town (far more clean, well organized, efficient, pleasant).

Room Tip: I stayed in a 10th floor room for a couple weeks and then in a 12 floor one for 10 days (both at the...

This hotel is the "esencial" type of the Estelar brand. That means it's their lowest tier kind of hotel whichs is stripping down features most of us dont use when on a city break: pool, gym, room service, etc. However, it stills great quality great value for your money. Perfectly tidy rooms, kind staff, light dinner and breakfast included. The location of the hotel is a big pro, lots of shopping centers around, nice neighbourhood since its located within one of the financial districts in Medellin.
