Hotel Lincoln
Ranked #69 of 112 Hotels in Medellin
Reviewed 3 November 2012

For this year´s stays in Medellin (the city served as a base camp for several trips to surrounding parts of Colombia) we chose this stylish and modern hotel in a safe and convenient location. On a previous occasion I had stayed in the Prado neighborhood (very close to the historic center) and I liked the atmosphere during the day, but felt very unsafe after dusk.

This hotel doesn´t only look nice on the internet, it IS nice. As soon as you get off the cab and enter the lobby, you are greeted by the numerous very friendly and welcoming members of staff. Whatever question you have, they are delighted to provide you with assistance and the right answer - just what one should expect in a city and business hotel. The room, we treated ourselves to a huge junior suite, was very stylish, sported a gigantic jacuzzi and left nothing to be desired - or so we thought. Nevermind that, as in so many cases of modern design, function comes after form, so not everything is very practical, but one thing really got on our nerves - and that was the. Every night until round about 3 am there was loud music blaring from some open-air disco or bar and, unless you are blessed with very deep and sound sleep, it is hard to falls asleep without the help of ear plugs. Don´t expect to be able to sleep until late to make up for the loud night because either, because the shades don´t keep out a great deal of light.

The breakfast wasn´t really up to the standard of the hotel - it was either eggs or fruit or bread and jam. I´m sorry to say that this was by far the worst and most incomplete breakfast we had during our five-week stay in Colombia.

So, would we go back to the Hotel Lincoln? Yes, I suppose we would. The hotel was really pleasant with more than a touch of luxury and style, the staff were amazing, the area is inviting with nice restaurants galore (yet not so lacking in character and as apart as glitzy El Poblado), a nearby Éxito supermarket and the metro (Estadio) is a safe 5-10 minute stroll away. Just the noise... that can really drive you up the wall - if you don´t have ear plugs...

Room Tip: If you can, try to get a room that doesn´t face the street - but we were told that all junior suites...

The hotel is a little jewel box located in a safe convenient barrio. The hotel is sleek, chic and modern. Flawless service. The staff is well trained, although hardly anyone speaks English. Great Internet service. I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. Just out the front door is La 70 and hundred of shops, restaurants and bars. Only 4 blocks from the metro. My suite was very affordable.

Room Tip: I chose an inside room to be away from the street noise, although I do not believe it would be that...
