Well Located Hotel in Poblado Area of Medellin
This was a very conveniently located hotel in the Poblado area of Medellin. I was visiting EAFIT University, and the hotel was very close to the university. The hotel room was large and comfortable and the staff was friendly and very attentive. I would certainly stay at this hotel again for another visit.

A great experience and location
My experience here was excellent. I arrived at around one in the morning to an efficient, helpful and English speaking front desk person, which was helpful as my Spanish after a long flight was less than great. The room was well appointed with a beautiful view of the city. The free breakfast is amazing with local fruit and Colombian staples like pandebonos and buñuelos. The Santafé mall is across the street for food and shopping, and the Aguacatalá station is only a few hundred meters away for quick travel into the heart of the city.

Fair 4.0
Not a great experience.
My 6th time in Medellin and let me tell you, this place is not worth this price at all. There are far better hotels or apartments at this price in Poblado. Cheap things like a wall mounted napkin dispenser as toilet paper. The roughest toilet paper known to man. Stain in tub on arrival. Glossy tile walls in bathroom with fingerprints. Gym equipment lacking, 1 treadmill with broken speed control. Head to gym bathroom...dirty and no toilet paper. The sauna area on roof needs to be renovated and doesnt look like the photos. In general the hotel is in need of focusing on the little touches. No electronic key fab, you get 1 real metal key with the room number taped onto it. What is this, 1980?? Walking up the stairs, you'll see the painter did a poor job and there are gum stains in the wood. Why? It's just a shame that they run this place like they do but assume they should get the same value you can get at much better hotels in the area. Room had no view. The airport driver they sent for me was a no show.

Average hotel
Average hotel in poblado area close to a lot of shops and restaurants. I stayed here for two nights. I upgraded to the superior room. The room I received the air conditioning unit was out of service as well the bathroom ceiling was leaking. I advised the front desk (Fransisco) of the issue they told me they would fix it... he never apologized or offer to change my room. It seems the hotel staff already know the facilites lack and don’t care. The breakfast was good but once again the hotel staff weren’t friendly. I had to chase down the attendants for a cup of coffee both days. In all the service is average. Hotel has potential but need to fix its facilities. There are a lot better Hotels in Medellin please look at other options
