This is a more modern hotel, in a nice area of Medellin. The rooms are a reasonable size, and clean. The staff is helpful and friendly, and english is spoken by many. This hotel is the same as any medium priced hotel found in any large North American city.

We spent three nights here and wandered safley in the area each day. The floor in the bathroom easily became very slippery - beware. They know about the problem and there are anti-slip strips on the floor. When I had a problem with the hair drier it was replaced almost immediately. Breakfast is a very average buffet but they do...

It is one of the bigger hotels in this area and not particularly charming. The rooms are a good size though and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Some of them speak English quite well and are more than willing to give you recommendations for restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. in the neighborhood. That neighborhood is very lively with restaurants,...

My wife and I had a private room in a hostel across the road but wanted something bigger and better. For about $10US more per night we picked Acqua Hotel. The location at the edge of Zona Rosa is excellent. It's on a vibrant street but most of the noise and action is a few streets away so the rooms...

My two night stay was overall very nice. After spending the few prior nights in another city in a cheap place, I was ready for somewhere more comfortable. The hotel is in the middle of a great neighborhood, safe, with lots of trendy restaurants and stores. What I loved: The location of course. The rooms are very clean, and while...

Right in the middle of a great zone, we didn't notice any out of the ordinary noise! The people at front desk are extremely attentive and very friendly. Rooms are great, roomy, with a fridge and a/c. I really felt that nothing here was a problem for the staff! Gracias chicos!!!

Nice, modern mid range hotel in an attractive area. As usually, try and get a room which is not facing the street. We had a room on the 3rd floor going to the back of the hotel. No street noise issue, but some noise from the breakfast area below (shouldn't be an issue if you have a room on a...
