Art Hotel Boutique
Ranked #47 of 110 Hotels in Medellin
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We were in the hotel for our two nights in Medellin.
This hotel was chosen by the tour company we travel with around the world. We have also just been told it would not be used next month and instead they would use the hotel next door.

It is located in the center and close to the major restaurants, attractions and activities. Easy bus and vehicle parking. Getting around is easy.
Our room had two windows but outside ventilation was poor as it faced a ventilation shaft. With the A/C on all day, the room temperature was never lower than 74 degrees.
We later found out that being on the 5th floor (top) meant we had metal and concrete above us that capture the sun and heat all day long. Stayed hot all night.
Others who were on the 3rd floor complained of cool rooms.

All was Art Deco style - bath, bedroom and work area. Spartan furnishings. Spacious concrete showers. But it took a long time for water to warm up. Beds were extra large king and comfortable

All support staff were super and helpful. Got us a table to do our evening work with an extra chair.

Breakfast were generally good, fresh fruits, variety of yogurt and special orders.

Room: Stay away from the 5th floor. Choose one on the 3rd.

Room Tip: Stay away from the 5th floor. Choose one on the 3rd or lower floor

We loved this hotel, were here on our honeymoon. Very nice, very clean. We ate in the restaruant there a few times. Fun atmosphere, they even have a movie theater in the hotel. We also took advantage of the spa :)

Cool, spare and dark concrete construction - some say resembles a prison as you look up to the floors from the central staircase. However it is a nice hotel with helpful staff in an area close to restaurants and bars. Good view from the rooftop where you can lounge and escape the busy city. Nice modern walk-in shower. Tasty breakfast in a partial outdoor restaurant.

Room Tip: There's a club across the street, so try to get a room towards the back of the hotel.

The Art Hotel is a modern, loft-like space and is in a great location in Medellin. Service was good and easy access to restaurants, and the subway. Rooms were very spacious and modern.
A warning: as it's in the nightlife area, it can get noisy at night

We stayed there two nights and liked our stay. The hotel is stylish, has an open reception and lounge area and is in a great location. The room was towards the back of the hotel on the 5th floor and very quiet. The lighting in the room could be better. Very modern interior e.g. sink is in concrete. But what we liked most was its (save) location. From there (turn right when leaving hotel and left on the next block) it is only one block to Lleras Park with lots of restaurant, another block up there are many shops and cafe's.

It also has a roof top, which is accessible and while they have benches there it's not really inviting. They could add some lounges, chairs and sun protection and it would be a booming place for cocktails or drinks. Until then it's not a destination point.

Breakfast buffet was okay (had much better once on our tour through Colombia). Friendly service. English was limited.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back. As rooms in the front can be noisy from neighboring bars / clubs.

My wife and I stayed at the Art Hotel for four nights and had a nice time overall. The location is perfect, a few short blocks from Parque Lleras and many fun restaurants and bars. I am a light sleeper so was worried that noise might be an issue (this is why we steered clear of the Charlee). The hotel was very sensitive to this concern, and we ended up spending Friday and Saturday night in a quieter room with no windows onto the street (where there is in fact a nightclub fifteen feet away) before moving to a bigger room with windows for Sunday and Monday. While we had some issues with our air conditioning, the front desk graciously lent us the fan from their office.

Daniel, at the front desk, speaks fluent English (a relative rarity in Medellin) and was a tremendous help to us throughout our stay, accommodating our requests and also providing valuable guidance on how to enjoy our time in the city. We cannot speak more highly of him as he really made our stay much more smooth and enjoyable.

While the service and location were great, my wife and I were not big fans of the architectural design of the hotel. The steel beams and concrete look stylish in an actual museum, bit feel a bit cold in a bedroom. The rooms all open onto an interior courtyard, and noise tends to echo quite loudly off of the steel beams. This meant that a slammed door anywhere in the hotel is audible in your room. My wife had no problem with this (she is a great sleeper!), but I found it disturbing, especially on Friday and Saturday night when there were still people coming and going at 4-5am.

Another design flaw in my view: the bathrooms feature sliding doors that do not really seal off the space, so there is not much of a sense of privacy.

Room Tip: The larger "executive suite" rooms are much more spacious and comfortable, but also face o...

The hotel has a modern and original concept. The rooms have excellent facilities and beds are very well for an excellent night's sleep. The hotel is located in a very nice area one block from Parque Lleras, has an excellent location with respect to restaurants and bars. It is also located a few blocks from the Poblado metro station, allowing you to travel throughout the city with convenience and affordable price.
