I went with friends to see Medellin and the Christmas light display! The hotel rooms are tiny, but functional (I stayed by myself in the room). The beds are good. My room was really close to the elevator and in the high traffic times, the dinging sound of the elevators passing my floor was really irritating. Breakfast is decent and inexpensive.

The service was good. They helped us sort out our room preferences after a mistake was made with the booking.the perfect place for someone on business or not spending a lot of time at the hotel.

I saw the housekeeper come to clean and she mopped without sweeping first. There is just one shampoo/soap dispenser in the shower, no amenities, very basic service as most Ibis.great location, close to a metro stop. Most of all. Can't beat the value!

I have lived in Medellin for over a year now, stayed in quite a few hotels. This hotel looks like it's new. It's probably the cleanest place I have stayed here.

They tell you when you come in that it's a no-frills hotel with no room service, etc. Funny thing is, that describes many hotels in town, it's just they tell you up front.

There is one restaurant on the next block down the street, and a few fast-food'ish (leaning towards restaurant) places one block directly in front of the hotel. It is not a place where you will stay and walk to any attractions. Expect to take a taxi or bus from here if you are in town as a tourist.

The internet was fine. I worked from the room one day and had no issues.

The rooms are fairly small, standard Ibis.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river for a better view.

The rooms are standard IBIS rooms, they could be a little bigger but aren't uncomfortably small. Seemed clean and wifi internet is provided although it is generally pretty slow. My only real complaint was actually with the laundry service I had to use.

The cost was astronomical for a so-called budget hotel. Admittedly it was there on the sheet but I didn't look too closely at the fine print which stated that same-day laundry costs 50% more, so my laundry bill for a week's worth of socks, underwear, one pair of jeans, and three shirts was $75, more than I was paying for a night of accomodation!!! On top of that, I was in a rush in the morning and assumed that they would pick it up from the room like other hotels but they absolutely refused even though I was clear that I was running late. They also wouldn't drop it off at my room and asked me to come pick it up. For that price they should send someone to dress me.

So while I had no other problems with the hotel, I won't stay at an IBIS again.

This is a new hotel in El Poblado but not in the heart of the neighbourhood -- you'll have to get a (very cheap) taxi to Parque Las Lleras.

Room: Ibis standard. I've read some people complaining about the room size. I strongly disagree, it's basically the same size I see in other Ibis hotels, it's the same size of Ibis Museo Bogota.

Bathroom: soap/shampoo provided, hygienic shower.

Location: right next to the modern art museum and a comercial centre, within a walking distance to Industriales metro station. I did not feel unsafe any time but Medellin is not a city to walk around, as there's nothing much to see -- if you're heading downtown, do take the subway; if you're heading to El Poblado, take a taxi (taxis are safe and cheap in Medellin).

Staff: always very kind.

Value: very good valuel, almost a bargain.

Cleaniness: it's Ibis standard, it's clean.

Others: I think they're still getting on track, as the hotel is new. It looks like they did not have my reservation on the system but it was no problem at all.

It is different kind of Hotel. Too small for a long stay but neat and clean. If you do not know what is '0' room service hotel, better keep away. They dont serve even drinking water at the room. No cupboards or a place to keep your luggage. Open closets with hangers for your cloths. Only few try to speak english. You feel more discomfort if you do not know spanish. I had a bit of hard time being an international traveller having vegetarian option.

If you are really looking for economy hotel and ready to spare many of your comforts, yes here is the best possible option in a nice place well maintained !

Room Tip: they do not serve any thing to room not even water. A/C bit noisy.
