I really loved this hotel. They upgraded our standard room to a room with a huge jacuzzi/balcony upon check-in which I was pleasantly surprised by.
After settling in I later found out that the balcony door didn't lock correctly. We were on the 6th floor, but I still took issue with this as I am a bit security obsessed particularly in a foreign country and with adjacent balconies easily accessible. Maybe I was paranoid, but I'd rather be paranoid than a victim. They did try to fix this issue but couldn't and did switch our room. however it was to a room with a hibachi grill... Far less exciting than a jacuzzi...
Nonetheless they did switch us back to a room with a jacuzzi/balcony the following day following a private tour we had taken (btw for the private tour ask for Mauricio - he's the best tour guide and so personable and knowledgeable, he really made the experience very personal)... Again, they were very proactive and accommodating and for this I am beyond happy and grateful. It could have really soured our experience if they had handled it very differently particularly since we were only there for 2 nights.
The restaurant in the hotel is solid. they make great drinks and breakfasts were delicious, plentiful and the service was always top notch.
The Rooftop bar/pool is also something to marvel, as is the gym and more so the steady stream of Medellin's finest looking women and men who come daily to maintain their physiques.
The hotel is also located near just about everything you'd want/need to see/do in Medellin. Parque Lleras has lots of cool shops and restaurants and night clubs to choose from. It's also around the corner from Pergamino Cafe - a truly transcendent cafe with indoor/outdoor seating that is head and shoulders better than any Starbucks or Juan Valdez that you'll come across.
Carmen is also a great restaurant with a vietnamese twist and tremendous cocktails just a few streets away which was also 5 star worthy in my opinion.
