Helpful and friendly staff, nice modern rooms
We had a lovely stay here. The front desk staff were really amazing! In our experience, there was always someone there who spoke english which was helpful for us with our broken, limited spanglish. They helped us book a tour and arrange airport transport, give us info on sightseeing around the city. The location is awesome. Close to a bunch of restaurants and bars, transit, and felt safe. Room was modern and clean, and a super comfy bed! I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect stay in Medellin!
Incredible experience here during my stay in Medellin! I had planned to change hotels to be closer to Spanish classes I was taking in the Poblado neighborhood, but changed back to this hotel. Wonderful, welcoming, helpful peopl, from the front desk to morning breakfast staff. Room very comfortable (great bed and pillows), very clean, AC, fridge. In a quiet, safe neighborhood right across from a church. Grocery and banks up the street. About a 12-min walk from the Estadio metro station. Walk is down a fairly busy street, which is a plus if you arrive alone at night (I was a solo traveler). I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed staying at this friendly and affordable hotel. Not many English-speaking foreigners in this neighborhood, a plus if you are trying to learn Spanish. Great morning buffet breakfast. Thank you to Maria, Natalia, Diego, and everyone at the hotel for such a great stay!
