I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights on business.
The hotel is above 3 night clubs, which I found out on my last day and couldn't go visit them, but I heard the music occasionally...didn't bother me.
The hotel was clean, organized, new and nice. I had a suit with kitchenette (sink, microwave, mini-bar, and coffee maker). Used the mini-bar to store my water and fruits.
I also want to talk about Columbia and Medellin (locals pronounce it Me-de-jin). The people specially the ladies are the most beautiful and most fit I've seen in one place. Almost everyone is dressed like they're going to a party and they look like they are gym rats (fit, slim and pretty).
Medellin is a very crowded city; lots of yellow cabs and motorcycles. You feed the exhaust pollution if you are outside long. The city is in a valley so it's surrounded by mountains and there is not much air flow to push off the smog.
It was very safe! I didn't feel even one second that I might be in danger. Malls carry similar or better products than you can find in US! Down town shopping is very different, more for locals and you will see vendors with hand carts etc.
Police and security are very visible and with all that traffic and crazy driving, I didn't see a single accident.
Enjoy your trip to this town and enjoy the great food!
