“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2010

Great place, great people, what else can you ask for?
We stayed 3 nights at medellin and definitely this place is worth each COP you pay for and more.

The rooms are big and beautiful, very clean place and a great atmosphere.
The staff were very helpful, giving us directions and recommending places to visit.
It has the best price/commodities relation in Medellin, I will definitely choose this Hotel next time I visit Medellin.

61 Prado is an elegant small hotel in a residential neighborhod which is currently in transition. In days gone by these large homes were where the rich people lived, but then they moved away to trendier areas, and Prado slipped into a decline. Now however these large older homes in this convenient location are again in demand. Relatively inexpensive to buy, money is being put into renovations. Before long Prado will be a trendy destination. In the meantime you can stay here very inexpensively.

The house is only about 4 minutes walk from the Prado Metro stop, and 15 minutes walk from the main downtown square - Plaza Botero. With the metro, you can be in Poblano the "in place" for shopping, restaurants and nightlife within 15 minutes.

Security is ensured by a locked wrought iron gate to the street and a locked house door. As a guest you are given keys to both, so you can come and go as you like. The Dutch owner Luc and his family live on site. They are a fount of information and extreemly helpful.

The furnishings tend towards minimalist, but with flair. Most of them have windows opening onto inner courtyard spaces, but a few have exterior windows. There is a roof top terrace with views over the city. The beds are comfortable, and everything is spotlessly clean. Plenty of hot water.

The tv in the rooms carries several European channels plus a couple of American ones, as well as all the Spanish language stations. There is a computer for internet access in the lobby, free of charge. Guests have the use of the kitchen if they wish to self cater, Breakfast is available on prior request, currently at a cost of 6000 pesos.

Long term guests, academics and musicians are encouraged. I paid 30,000 pesos/night for a single room.
