Art Hotel Boutique
Ranked #57 of 112 Hotels in Medellin
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Too noisy to be comfortable. Spartan concrete everywhere. One rowdy party of 4 in the residents bar had us ringing reception at 3 am asking for peace to sleep.

Lots of better alternatives for the money.

Dear Mr. Lazyfox:
The design of the hotel is indeed non-conventional. The concrete and steel is what gives it its personality, something that practically all guests appreciate. In order to limit the noise effects, special acoustic doors and windows have been installed. These temper the consequences of the design options. The noise in the bar is unusual since the hotel bar closes at around 10 pm. we ask apologies for what happened.

I stayed here for three nights with my mom and we had a great time. The hotel is in a perfect location - right in El Poblado but a few blocks from all the action so it was nice and quiet at night when we wanted to go to sleep. It is also only a 15 min walk to the metro station. The breakfast each morning was huge and delicious; the rooms were funky and always clean and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive (we had a problem with a leaky ceiling in our bathroom and the staff immediately responded and switched us over to another room just down the hall). I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

stayed here for almost two weeks while in Medellin for a conference. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was pleasant. after reading other reviews, I asked for a quiet room off the street which meant only having windows onto the hotel's internal courtyard but it was quiet and that was more important to me. the breakfasts are very nice -- a lot of fresh fruit and fresh squeezed juices along with eggs, toast, cereal, etc. but maybe the best thing was the help the front desk gave me after I checked out. I left my cell phone in the taxi on the way to the airport and they helped retrieve my phone from the taxi and are sending it back to me now. I really can't thank them enough for this. I should add that all the people who worked the front desk during our stay were incredibly helpful...recommendations on where to eat, sites to see, etc. I can't comment on the spa because were were always off either working or seeing the sights but nice that the gym and sauna are there if you want them. oh, for runners, you should know that this is in a neighborhood where you can run out the door in almost any direction and be perfectly safe...but the hills might kill you.

Room Tip: 407 was quiet with windows only onto the internal courtyard

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

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
