I spent five nights at the Park 10 in February and couldn't shake the feeling that I was staying in a venerable old Manhattan business hotel that had been transported to Medellin. Brownstone building on a nicely-treed street in an upscale neighbourhood. Upper East Side, anyone?
Inside, wood panelling and Persian rugs in the reception area and smartly-uniformed staff.
The suites are large and comfortably outfitted --try to get a corner unit with big windows on both sides. Beds are luxurious and soft with plenty of pillows, and you are provided with a spacious and comfortable work and relaxation area in the suite.
A nice mix of tourists and Colombian businessmen was patronizing the Park 10 during my stay, so I didn't feel like I was in some gringo ghetto. You can still walk to the very gringo-heavy zona rosa nightlife district in five minutes but otherwise the hotel feels nicely isolated and tranquil --like a quiet area of NYC.
Some could quibble about the slightly worn condition of the place, but in my opinion that gives it a nice patina and ambience.
A couple nitpicks: the closet and hangars are inside the bathroom, which can be good or bad depending if you intended to steam your shirts while taking a long hot shower.
The hotel is on the corner of a quite busy intersection so room selection is key. Even though they've installed double-layered windows on some of the street-facing suites, noise can still be a problem.
Otherwise, I came away from my five-day stay with a very relaxed and warm feeling about the Park 10.
