“Great location not great for sleeping in late”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The hotel is good value and centrally located. The staff are nice if you are a foreigner. As a Colombian, I found them a bit rude. They seemed to focus more on foreign guests. There is a busy construction site next to the hotel - very loud so if you want to sleep past 8 am - this is not the place for you. The rooms are spacious with air con, internet and TV. The breakfast is basic. The spa was empty - with no staff so I was not able to use it.

Room Tip: Away from the construction site

If you travel a lot, you need to find a place that understand you and cater to your needs.
The Art Hotel is the best place to stay in Medellin. Either you stay there for business or Leisure you will find what you need.
The staff is dedicated smiling and geared towards your needs. The GM is always around to great you and speak with you.
Cool art in the Lobby and modern rooms with shower and tubs.
Breakfast buffet in the morning (included), free Wifi and one block away from "Parque Lleras" which is the happening place in Medellin.
I travel a lot and stay in Luxury and Boutique hotels.
Next time I go back to Medellin I know where to stay.
Thank you /Merci

Room Tip: any rooms you get is perfect they have an inside patio.

This stylish hotel is located on a quiet street in the Zona Rosa area of Poblado. Two minutes walk to a square surrounded by bars and restaurants and very safe even to walk about late at night.

The decor is New York loft style, concreted floors, brick walls and metal ceilings. It looks great. Reception and lobby areas are spacious. Breakfast was average and served in the bar area at the back of the hotel. There is a spa with a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room in the basement.

Rooms are modern. Bathroom nice. Had to let the shower run for five minutes but then plenty of hot water. Flat screen TV and DVD player.

Staff at reception and breakfast very friendly and the door staff very knowledgeable and helpful.

It's a short taxi ride or a 15 minute walk to the Poblado metro station from where its cheap & easy to access all areas of the city.

And at $80 a night I paid, great value. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have external windows, others internal

The Art Hotel is very modern from the lobby to the rooms. The rooms have cement floors with some wood inserts and feature flat screen TVs and remote controlled air-conditioning. Bathrooms have both bath tubs and walk-in showers. There is free WIFI and two computers available next to the front desk. Breakfast is served on the lower level next to the bar. Breakfast was less than basic but thank goodness there are restaurants close by. A park a block away from the hotel is alive with music and activity at night and is surrounded by many bars and restaurants. There is a club directly across the street from the hotel which was very loud one night. Overall the Art Hotel is a good choice.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this hotel for its unpretentious design. Amazing location, around the corner from Lleras Parque, where many restaurants, cafes, bars and very nice shopping with local designers' boutiques. Very lively area, but safe. Although there is a disco opposite, i haven't heard a thing. I have found bed very comfortable and overall room design so calming!
Staff was really nice, from night porter to a cleaner, polite and smiling. Not much English or other languages, but it is Colombia after all and one should speak at least a little bit of Spanish when travelling to this country!
One thing on which to improve maybe is breakfast. It is generally OK, and come to think of it has it all, but it is not a wide choice.
At a time we were there, there was building work going on outside, in the building next door, but not much of the disturbance, except for in the morning during the breakfast.
So, very quiet, decent, clean hotel in the great area! We would come here again!

Stayed for 2 nights....great location, friendly staff. Feels safe in the Zona Rosa. The variety of food available in the area is great and the prices are reasonable. The construction next door was not convenient.

Absolutely loved this hotel. Fantastic location close to Parque Lleras and all the great restaurants, bars, etc. Great service from all who worked there and a shout out to Jovan for going above and beyond for whatever we asked for. Would stay there again in a heartbeat. The only thing I wish they took advantage of was their rooftop where a great lounge/bar could be located to take in the views.
