Immaculately clean large room. Comfy beds. AC worked fine. No view from the room. Breakfast was passable. Staff were friendly and efficient. Location is just close enough to walk to lots of restaurants in Laureles.

Hi John, We are glad that you had a pleasant stay in our hotel and in our city, that you have been able to move to different places in the area. I want to tell you that our breakfast is American type for which you will always find: eggs, bread, ham, cheese, fruit, hot drink and cold drink, since this is the one that is included in the rate, as for our rooms we have two towers: an express tower where the rooms are internal (no view) and an executive tower (more spacious and with a view). We hope to have your visit at our hotel again, to be able to attend you again and make your experience in our city unforgettable. Jennifer Gutierrez

My mom and I visited Medellin as a family adventure. We got the double connecting room on the 9th floor. 2 separate rooms with 2 twin beds. Each room has their own AC. Comfortable bathroom and warm shower. Beds were soft. Very clean. They also has a steam room but we didnt have the time to use it. Continental style breakfast was really good . Located in the centre of Laureles. 15 min walk to Estadio metro station. Min walk to the main street with bars and restuarants. The thing we liked the most was the FANTASTIC service. Out of all the hotels we stayed in Colombia, this is by far the best. They speak English and are very attentive. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. You wont regret it.

I've been here four times over the past few years. I stay for a month or so each time. I acknowledged one of the workers named Guillermo and he called me pig in spanish thinking I did not understand him. I've never been insulted at a hotel in my life. I used to think this place was okay even though they are extremely overpriced for the quality of the rooms and location. I figured I'd stay here because I knew the staff at the hotel pretty well && most workers here are friendly. This will be the absolute last time I visit this hotel indefinitely after being called a pig. It's bad enough it sounds like a pigeon orgy in my room every morning, but the pig comment was the last straw. If you enjoy employees that will insult you if they think you can not understand them then this is your place, if you want a quality room I suggest other places. I never expected this from El Porton de San Joaquin.

The service is above and beyond. Mr. David and Mr. Diego, went all out in providing great service. Now, the first time I ate here, I had the Plato Paisa, plenty of good food. On my second visit, I order the Plato Caribbean. The seafood was to sweet, it came with just too small patacones and minute made rice. All of this was priced at COP 38,000 pesos. What a disappointment. The taste was lacking and it was made with too much sweet cream. Again, the places to eat have been lacking in taste and overpriced. Still have one more day and hope it will be better. I have been reading the reviews and can not attest to the reviews. Just be careful.

Good afternoon, Mr. Alberto. On behalf of the family Hotel El Porton de San Joaquín, we are very happy to receive your opinions about your stay. I am very sorry that you have had a bad experience with some of our dishes, since the gastronomy of our country tends to vary a lot in flavors, which for a foreigner can be different.
