If you are travelling with a child, your property may require you to present the following documents: Parents travelling to Colombia with a child under 18 may be required to present the child's birth certificate and photo ID (passport for foreign visitors) upon check-in. If a relative or legal guardian is travelling to Colombia with the child, that relative or legal guardian may be required to present a notarised consent of travel signed by both parents and a copy of both parents' ID. If only one parent is travelling to Colombia with the child, that parent may be required to present a notarised consent of travel signed by the other parent. Visitors who plan to travel with children should consult with a Colombian consulate office prior to travel for further guidance.

Mandatory fees

You’ll be asked to pay the following charges at check-in or check-out:

  • The national sales tax (19%) is charged at check-out to citizens of Colombia regardless of the length of stay and to foreigners staying 60 consecutive days or more. Foreigners on a tourist visa are exempt from this tax. Furthermore, the tax may apply per room when the room is shared by a taxable and a non-taxable guest.

Optional extras

Area shuttle service is offered for an extra charge

We have included all charges provided to us by this property. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the unit you book.

Recent reviews

Very good 8.4 From 27 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent value was truly a surprise.
Located in a busy downtown area, but our room was very quiet. Not everything was new, but it was clean and pleasant. No A/C, but you seldom need that in Medellin, and the fan was good.

Very good 8.0
good overnight spot
This is a good option if you are on a budget.. the hotel is clean and is a good location. I checked in around 10:40 a night without a problem... Front desk guy was really helpfull

Poor 2.0
Unfriendly, appalling customer relations
I arrives at about 9.30am. My room apparently was empty, clean and ready, but the receptionist pointed to a sign on the wall saying "check-in 3.00pm" and refused me access to the room unless I paid extra money. She said that was the rule and she couldn't change it. I would have to leave my bags in a storage and wait to shower and change until 3.00pm. I found that totally petty and ridiculous and explained that when I left in 2 days, I would be leaving at 5.00am - a full 8 hours before the advertised check-out time of 1.00pm - so if they wanted to charge by the hour, they would actually owe me a refund! This entire incident left a very bad taste in my mouth - a totally ridiculous approach to customer relations. Apart from that the bed did not have a top sheet - merely a blanket, which I'm sure had not been washed in weeks as it had long female hair attached to it...and that was just what I could see. The area around the hotel was not great and frankly they are much better options nearby which you should take unless you are willing to put up with totally unhelpful and unfriendly staff and manager.
