I would highly recommend this hotel. It's in a great location in El Poblado area, close walking distance to all the fun restaurants and bars, but yet enough distance to ensure a quiet and more relaxed atmosphere at night. My boyfriend and I arrived late at night from the airport and were welcomed by a friendly front desk worker who brought us straight to our room and advised us about the neighborhood. We felt safe enough to walk to a nearby restaurant for drinks within an hour of our arrival (and proceeded to walk alone at night to and from the hotel for the rest of our stay).
The hotel is clean and very well maintained. The hotel and rooms are intricately decorated by color theme and really funky art. We stayed in Escarlata, which was pretty large, had a very comfortable bed and AC. The one interesting thing about Escarlata is that the shower is open and is not covered by a door or curtain. This works out fine for a couple, but wouldn't do well for any other pair! The only other con, which I didn't really mind, was that there are definitely thin walls. You could hear people in the reception area from our room and we were even situated further than other rooms. The hotel provides a nice breakfast every morning, consisting of eggs, arepa or toast, coffee and fruit juice.
Staff is super friendly and was able to set up taxi services for us and provide helpful advice on the area. We had no issues with the language barrier because my boyfriend and I can both speak Spanish, but there was a really friendly receptionist who speaks English fluently.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone traveling to Medellin. This was our first time in Colombia and Kolor Hotel was our fist stop off the plane. Comfortable, clean and fun place to stay for our time in Medellin!
