My stay here started really badly when my pickup at the airport didn't show up! I speak Spanish so I just took a taxi, but this may be a little unsettling for a first time visitor to Medellin as the airport is VERY far away from town and the road is very dark... Although there is almost zero chance of danger, it is better to ride with somebody your hotel sends. Fail there.
I just could not fault the hotel... super modern rooms (except for old TV and old AC unit) Huge room with huge windows which I LOVED... Great breakfast terrace.. Super clean and efficient housekeeping.
Only problem with the room is that the blackout curtains do not cover the window effectively and I was awaken every morning at 5:45 by the first rays of sun.
Also, front desk personnel is very young and inexperienced and I had an issue with my bill and never got an apology for my missed pickup until I requested to speak with the manager, who responded and gave me a $2 (Wow!!!) discount on my ride back to the airport.
Lots of potential, great location! Management with better attention to detail could turn this hiotel into a gem!
