Reviewed 27 April 2016

Actually this is our home in Cali. Due to business purpose I often visits cali and I stayed in this hotel minimum 20 times in last 8 years and spend more than 100 days here. The place is small but great. Entire staff is very cooperative. Even we get direct entry in kitchen for preparation of our own indian style food. Owner Mr. Henrike is interesting person and is very kind. The place is very near from famous mall chipi chape and city center. Very safe. You will find lots of books there if you are interested in reading.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good.

Hotel Stein is a great place to stay in Cali. Upon your arrival you will be immediately surprised by the beautiful Colonial/historic look of the hotel.

The level of customer service you get at the hotel is great! and this is, probably, the best feature of the hotel. The owner is always available to answer your questions, address any concerns, offer suggestions or just to chat about anything. He speaks English and Spanish. The staff is very helpful and there is a security guard at the door day and night.

Breakfast is good with a variety of fresh fruit, eggs, breads and cheeses. There are good restaurants in the vicinity and a shopping mall with a big food court at a walking distance. Also, there is always delivery available.

The hotel grounds are small but there is an outdoor pool and some common areas with nice gardens and a small playground for children.

The hotel location is fantastic! Great neighborhood and close to major attractions.

Transportation is always available and easy to get.

The rooms are big and comfortable. Bathrooms have showers (I don’t know if tubs are available in some rooms).

Staying at the Stein was a great experience. I highly recommend it if you want to forget about the traditional “hotel” feeling and enjoy a home away from home place with lots to offer.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the property are quieter

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful property. The grounds are lush, the pool is very nice, the rooms are very comfortable, and the staff is friendly and very accommodating. It is also a very safe property with security 24/7. The rates include a free breakfast that is very good. They also serve lunch and dinner, and the food is wonderful, home cooked, and they will try to meet any request you have. We truly felt at home with the wonderful owners and their staff. We really enjoyed the beautiful and comfortable veranda, enjoying the evening breeze and making new friends. This was one of the best overall experiences I have had at a hotel.

Extremely friendly owner and staff welcome guests to this oasis in the downtown of Cali. The grounds are lush with beautiful terraces filled with flowers. Each room is different, filled with character. Some have A/C and others just have a fan. I recommend an AC since the hotel is downtown and traffic can be loud. Cute pool to get wet in and lovely exercise area overlooking the gardens. Delightful stay.

This is a gorgeous 19th century home that has been a hotel for almost 60 years. Its old-time luxury--wood floors, oil paintings and a sprawling interior--are unmatched in Cali and perhaps South America, especially at this price. We got a suite which was reasonably priced and very spacious. We did have some issues with a noisy air conditioner (never fixed in three days) and the hot water (basically there was none, but it was sort of warm).

Beyond that, the owner is very sociable and the staff is extremely helpful. The grounds are nice. The gym is not much of a gym. The pool is OK-sized and deep, a rarity in Colombia for some reason. The place is secluded but central, very easy to find for a taxi and well-known around town. The breakfast is also excellent, with options all week and a respectable buffet on Sunday.

I have to agree with the reviews. The owner is there everyday greeting and talking to everyone. The people seem to enjoy working at the Stein Colonial. My wife is Colombian and she says the owner has no accent.
They welcomed our dog and there are ample outside areas for her to do her business. This will be our first choice when we go to Cali.

Nice hotel in the centre of Cali. Old-stylish, non-standard hotel with good staff, chambers and wifi. Those seeking standard hotels where everything is always the same should stay away. Close to the path leading to the tres croces and on walking distance from the main centre.

Stayed: October 2015
