On my previous visits to Medellin, I stayed at the Royal Medellin Hotel, but this time the local coordinator selected the Plaza Rosa Hotel to conduct our venue, so I stayed there for 7 nights.
As already pointed out by other reviewers, the hotel is conveniently located near the zona rosa of Medellin (just a short walk from the hotel), where all the night life is. The area is pretty safe and not far from several mayor shopping malls (yet, to take a taxi is recommended)
Over all, the hotel was clean, the room I got was quite big with the basic amenities (safe-box, free Wi-Fi, mini-bar, etc.) and a huge window with a very beautiful view…. however I've had found the bed mattress quite uncomfortable.
The hotel has a small spa and sauna (humid room), but in my opinion is lacking of any basic gym equipment, so there is no way of exercising while there.
The staff was pleasant, but for whatever reason, all the time they failed to deliver the messages and notes left for us at the front desk.
Breakfasts (as well as other meals) were served on the patio…. a nice and close surrounding landscaped garden which gives a very nice atmosphere to the place.
Though not the most modern hotel and definitely a little bit outdated, the hotel offers a pretty decent option for those looking for the bear basics and a good location.More
