The Art House Medellin
Ranked #95 of 241 Speciality Lodging in Medellin
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have just finished a long stay in The Art House and it is the perfect place to be.

It is in a great neighbourhood with a brilliant location. The rooms are very nice and the house is in top condition. There is a large roof terrace for socialising with great views and the owner Todd will help you out with anything, a great guy.

The arthouse in Medellin is very comfy located in Envigado in la magnolia, excellent facilities, comy rooms, good bathrooms, always clean. Really near to "la Zona rosa de Envigado of Food and Party", near to the principal park of Envigado many supermarkets and off licences around the house, nice two terraces, friendly locals in the neighborhood, I spent about six months due to a job I've got in Medellin and it was really heplful in al senses. I highly remomend it.

The Arthouse Medellin is a very nice, comfortable shared apartment in a great area to live, located in a nice neighborhood in Envigado, just outside Medellin. I stayed there for 2 months and loved that the neighborhood did not have hostels, hotels, or guesthouses, just locals going about their daily life. It was a great way to experience local life from the small tiendas for fruits and vegetables, butcher shops, and supermarkets, to the plazas, small restaurants and nightlife. The bus to downtown, El Poblado, or the metro station is just 2 blocks away.

The apartment is kept clean, has 2 hammocks for recovering from a night out or just an afternoon nap, rooftop terrace with a grill (but I doubt your burgers and ribs will be as good as ours were :) ) and a nice common area with a large flat screen. There is also a large information board in the dining area with loads of information about the area. I highly recommend the Arthouse rather than staying in some of the touristy areas, and I think you'll appreciate how friendly the locals are around the neighborhood!

I stayed at the Art House for almost 6 months and really enjoyed my time there. Its peaceful, clean (maid 2x/week) and close to public transport. I recommend it for short-term stays in Medellín if you are looking for something in between a hostel and apartment.

Room Tip: Room 3 is the quietest!

We extended our stay here twice we loved it so much. The house is great with a really nice rooftop terrace. The location was perfect, lots of restaurants and a short taxi ride to Poblado. It was great meeting Todd and Veronica, and also the other guests that stayed in the house. Todd was full of useful information about Medellin and the surroundings and always keen to invite us out. We would definitely go back and also recommend.

We came for a week and stayed for three months, it's that type of place. Great apartment with four bedrooms and a small casita up on the terrace, huge kitchen and living areas, more bathrooms than you'll ever need and a terrace overlooking the wonderful crazy world of Envigado. Don't stay in Poblado, it's too glitzy and sterile, experience real life in Envigado with some of the friendliest people you'll meet. Great for gyms, restaurants (don't miss Lucio, carrera 43a) and to get everywhere.

Room Tip: If you like creature comforts, choose room 1 or 2. If you like something more rustic and private, ch...

I agree with all the comments made here. I'll add that for those seeking to enjoy Medellin, Envigado and Sabaneto, The Art House is the perfect location. You are a 10 minute bus ride to Parque Lleras, 15 minutes to Sabaneta and Envigado itself is great to explore to get a real taste of Colombia and Antioquia.

Regarding the apartment, two supermarkets are a 5-10 minute walk away and there are dozens of places to buy fruit, vegetable and other necessities within a block radius. A lot of thought was put into the apartment to make sure that everything in your home is here (ironing board, iron, a big mirror at the entrance for the ladies, corkscrew, hot water!)

But note that this is not a place to party. The house is quiet most of the time (the stereo can sometimes be a little loud) but you'll get a good night sleep here. If you want to party, there are a lot of bars in the neighborhood (note not discos). Check out some of the video bars or salsa places. Most important, enjoy your stay...I sure did!

Thank you Sebastian for taking good care of the place!

Room Tip: Book early. This is a great secret and they are now only accepting reservations for 1 month periods
