Awesome concierge Ophelia was very helpful. Rooms were spacious and clean. They even had a garage space for our rental car on the two nights we stayed there. Fast laundry service too. Only caveat is that the immediate neighborhood - although picturesque and good for walks during the day - is apparently not very safe after dark.

Couldn't believe what we got for our money at this place. We had the junior suite (I think) which was absolutely huge and had two great beds - after staying in a few hostels it made a very nice change! Located close enough to all the things we wanted to see in Medellin that we could just walk, all great. Just for the sake of resting our feet we ate in the restaurant at night which had a really nice atmosphere and was a decent price for some very good food. There's a sitting area up on the roof which is pretty nice with a beer in hand and all the lights of the city in front of you. We weren't in Medellin for the nightlife but more to see things during the day, so this was perfect for us.

I have stayed here on several occasions, and I have never been disappointed. The value factor is through the roof! For a great price, you are treated to a true guesthouse experience. Lucas and crew have worked to create a unique atmosphere in a rebuilding area. Speaking of the area: You are within a few blocks of the Metro, a 5-10 min walk to Villanueva (Western Union, etc) as well as Plaza Bolivar. The area at night can be kind of empty and sketchy. I would recommend taking a (very cheap) cab anywhere, though I have wandered down to the Prado station at night for some grilled street food.

We had seen Prado 61 featured on the latest Lonely Planet Edition of Colombia. We decided to give it a try, especially because it is only a few blocks away from downtown. However, most of the city's modern and stylish places are south of the city (a 15 min taxi ride).
Breakfast was great and rather cheap (about $3.50 USD), nice internet connection and even a small collection of fine wines.

My recent stay at the 61 Prado exceeded my expectations! Excellent in every way! The hotel lobby is very classy, and we were really happy to have super clean modern rooms with comfy bed, a big screen TV. The hotel's staffs Ophelia and Luc were lovely, very accommodating and went above and beyond! -- and the hotel itself has a lot to offer -- a dining area with very delicious food, they serve breakfast and dinner . The hotel is very close to the Metro Station and Downtown. It's a fun, five-star experience. Hope to return again soon!

61Prado Guesthouse is providing excellent value for money since it has spacious (renovated) rooms, all the mod-cons (tv,wifi,hot water), a good restaurant and very friendly staff.
I read a lot "complaints" about the neighbourhood in which this hotel is situated but for me, it added to the feeling what Medellin is about; the rich and the poor mixed together.
Yes, you could pay a lot more and move yourself to Poblado trying to keep the "real" world outside but myself, i go for the convenience of Prado's location (metro is 5 minutes away and Botero Plaza only a 10-minute walk) and the excellent value for money.

Concerning safety: just use common sense like you should use everywhere when walking to the hotel at night and you'll be just fine....

Stayed here a week. Had single room 309. Great for me but bring blindfold!! Noise?? Can't tell us as I'm Deaf.
I concur with most positive feedback on this place.
Lux Is one cool dude.
His crew is superb!
Very home like atmosphere.
Clean clean place.
Took several meals here because its a super value. Gregarious and expressive chef.
Drinks on honor system-pay at the end.
I can aver this is a safe neighborhood. Walked home several times at night alone. Nary a shady character to be found. Employ common sense of your surrounding.
Prado Metro rail a few blocks away.
Hilly terrain but walkable. Watch where you step at all time or suffer a twisted (or worse a broken) ankle.
