Another business town hotel targeted at the business traveller. Modern, clean, effecient and well designed. Rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Staff need to be better trained. Took nearly an hour to checkin. The overall facilities are good as is the hotel generally.

Though my business travel took me through rough-looking neighborhoods and poverty was self-evident, the hotel was clean, spacious, and felt secure. The lobby/reception area was open and gave the impression of grand space. The room was a bit different: ceramic tile floors instead of carpet, clean, white decor instead of the usual muted earth tones. The dining room was large...

We spent 3 days at this nice hotel in a nice area in Barranquilla. The rooms were your typical 3-4 star hotel room. The bathroom was spacious with a great shower! The hotel is connected to a mall with a few shops and a salon. The overall service/hotel staff was perfection. Overall, a really pleasant stay.

This us a solid business hotel, not a luxury hotel. Service is first rate. Food is good. Strong air conditioner. Clean room. The internet was a little slow. The hotel is located in a nice area of town, but is relatively isolated from restaurants and stores. The Dann is in a better location.
