I just returned from my vacation to Medellin, Colombia where I had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Poblado Alejandria. The hotel is located at the intersection of Calle 3 Sur and Carrera 36 in Poblado, which is an upscale part of Medellin. The area is beautiful, quite and safe.
The hotel is meticulously maintained. I had reserved a standard room with two beds which were a bit firm but that’s the norm in Colombia. The beds came with a small comforter which kept me quite warm in the colder nights. The room had A/C, cable TV, ample closet space, spacious bathroom and was very roomy. Poblado is very quiet at night so there were no problems with noise of any kind.
The hotel staff was incredible, I felt like a guest in their home. They would go out of their way to make sure you were well taken care of. They would always greet you with smile and were willing to help you in any way they could.
The morning breakfast, which is included, was delicious. It was buffet style… you had choices of freshly squeezed juices, coffee, fresh selection of fruits and cheeses, various breads, arrepas and eggs. The staff members would bring you coffee to your table and even make your eggs to your liking.
The hotel does not have a pool but I didn't miss it. Located on the top floor, you will find the gym, two bathrooms, two scenic decks and two jacuzzi's. It was great place to come and relax. The views were incredible!
Taxis were always available to take you anywhere you need to go. They would normally be a few parked just to the right of the entrance. On the busier nights, the porter would call one for you if none were available when you walked down.
Close by you will find anything you need. I spent some time at the Santa Fe Centro Comercial with is just a 5-10 min taxi ride from the hotel. This is a 5 story mall with just about anything you can imagine. Sampled some great food, did some shopping, enjoyed the great scenery and even went to the movie theatre located on the 5th floor.
