Powered by AI

The Somos Bold Hotel stands out for its chic design and thematic ambiance, backed by a chorus of praise for its stylish and spotless rooms. Guests frequently commend the rooftop bar and delectable breakfast among its amenities, though there are occasional grievances regarding jacuzzi function and noise levels. Nestled in a serene yet central neighborhood, its location is lauded for easy access to dining and transit. The hotel's staff earns acclaim for their warm service, though some guests note sporadic lapses. Despite the comfort and modernity of the rooms, a few travelers criticize the space's size and practicality, and the hotel's value is questioned due to unexpected fees.

Quite cool, modern boutique hotel with around 20 rooms of various types. Love the internal spiral staircase. Ours was a superior with semi open bathroom and walk in shower and a juliette balcony on the 5th floor with good views of a part of the city. Bed was very comfy and room had air con.

The location, IMO, is perfect as in a quiet leafy street, but only 10 mins walk to El Poblado metro station and a few minutes to lots of eateries and bars. It's a touristy area but not in a bad way and it feels very safe.

Staff are young, friendly and helpful and speak some English. A shout out to Santiago on reception, especially, who came to our aid when our tour guide didn't show up.

There weren't many options for breakfast, although it did change daily. However, what was offered was excellent. The top floor is a partially open roof top bar and restaurant which is popular with a young crowd and it is noisy. Nevertheless, once you're in your room we found it ok because as well as your room door there is another sliding door to each entrance hall, which pretty much shuts out the noise.

There are a couple of improvements that could be made: Bathroom lighting is really poor; no hairdryer in room; difficult to get a response to emails.

In summary, a good place to enjoy the vibrant city of Medellin at a reasonable price.

Situated in the fun Manila neighborhood full of restaurants, Somos Bold provides modern stylish comfort in a hip setting. The room was very spacious. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. They are very friendly and easy to talk to. Stefanie also went above and beyond to help my husband and I communicate with a difficult Uber driver to make sure that he would drop us off at the correct address in Comuna 13. I would definitely stay here again and can't wait to see the rooftop space when it's finished.

The Somos Bold in Medellín exceeded all expectations! The location is superb, surrounded by plenty of bars and restaurants, and within walking distance of popular areas like Poblado, Primavera, and Provenza. The spacious and impeccably clean rooms boast a stunning industrial modern architecture, and the balcony offers a perfect spot to unwind. The rooftop restaurant and bar are truly amazing, offering breathtaking views. Breakfast was great as well.
Overall, our three-night stay at The Somos Bold was nothing short of fantastic. Highly recommend.

During our recent stay at Somos Bold in Medellin, a group of friends and I encountered issues with the front desk staff and the inconvenient location of the Master Suite in the lobby. Accusations of smoking in the room led to a $200 USD fee, coupled with unprofessional conduct and persistent harassment through messaging services. Questionable negotiation tactics further marred the experience. Despite the hotel's stylish appearance, the lack of transparency and professionalism left a lasting negative impression. Future guests should inquire about smoking policies and be cautious of potential harassment. American travelers, in particular, should note the unusual practice of listing penalty fees in USD. Our disappointing encounter with the staff has led us to decide against staying with Somos Hospitality Group in the future.

Hi Mlezcano, We regret that your experience at our hotel was not the better one. We do have policies regarding the Non Smoking inside the hotel, this policies are displayed on each one of the rooms and on the register card you sign at the check in it says about the fee for this cases. We will review the way the front desk agent explain you the fee to improve it for a future and provide a better service.

Location was great and breakfast was excellent. The only thing I was very disappointed with is the fact I booked a junior suite, paid extra money for a room with a jacuzzi in the terrace, that I was unable to use during my short 3 night stay. They have to send someone to your room to open the cold water, the jacuzzi only has scalding hot water. Then once they fill it up with some cold water, you have to call them back so they can come back to your room to shut off the valve on the tub. Or they leave you to do the work while you’re on vacation. It wasn’t as easy as it sounds. My husband attempted to do this. But by this time the moment had passed and was ruined… the next evening we were way too tired from our excursions to contact the desk again to set up our jacuzzi for us. Never heard of this in the US or any country I’ve visited. Also, there are no robes in the quite small room. I paid a lot of money in comparison to a more simple room (which is a scary thought) than the one I had. Overall, I liked the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is great.

I want to begin by saying it is a Chic hotel. Very beautiful however the service and accommodation as well as amenities are 1 star. They give you 3 waters total and no refill in your stay ( we were there 4 days). If you request water after 10 they tell you the kitchen is closed and you can’t get water ( a simple necessity) we requested ice and they don’t have ice or an ice machine). You can only contact them thru what’s app no phone in the rooms. The light is very dim, therefore you can’t really do your make up that well. The breakfast is the same menu daily only changing one option and they charge for dark coffee or expresó. Otherwise you are stuck with light watered down coffee. The bathroom has no privacy. Honestly I gave it 2 stars because the bed is comfortable and the hotel is pretty but maximum stay one night. Make sure you bring your water and ice.

In photos, the hotel seems like a cool, modern/ hipster aesthetic type of place but upon arrival, you can tell the place is cheap. The set up of the room was so uncomfortable I couldn't bare to be there for 30 minutes. Even worse, my A/C malfunctioned and toilet clogged.

Furthermore - and probably the most upsetting, my friends who DO NOT SMOKE, were accused of smoking in their room and were greeted by an angry receptionist, DANIELA. Instead, of pulling them aside to inform them of their "findings", she decided to intercept them as soon as we got back, with a paper, scolding them in front of customers and telling them they would be charged a $200.00 fee for smoking. She said they smelled it around 12:30, which is curious because we had already left for our day in the town, so we asked to review the cameras (which never happened).
After much back and forth she decided to bring down their "set charge" to $100, then all of a sudden back to $200 cause she felt like it (sounds like an extortion tactic to me).

During my check out, Daniela asked numerous times if I was sure I hadn't consumed anything from the hotel. Knowing their shady tactics, I told her I'd be glad to walk to the room with her to confirm for herself.

In conclusion, I would recommend avoiding this hotel. As cost-effective as it may seem, the trouble is just not worth it. In the end, they'll just find something to accuse you of and get more money out of you.

As a frequent traveler to Colombia, I strongly believe Airbnb is by far the better option.

Hi Adriana, We regret that your experience and your friend at our hotel was not the better one. We do have policies regarding the Non Smoking inside the hotel, this policies are displayed on each one of the rooms and on the register card you sign at the check in it says about the fee for this cases. I personally spoke with your friends and they do accept that one of your friends do smoke on the room, but where arguing to charge the fee to them instead to they, unfortunately, since it happen on their room they are responsible on what happen inside of it. We will review the way the front desk agent explain you the fee to improve it for a future and provide a better service.

This hotel and our stay was amazing! We had an easy time getting checked-in and setup. The lobby is a nice space to hangout and work if needed with seating that spills into the outdoors.

The room was very tastefully styled with a gorgeous balcony. Lots of green which makes for a nice place to stand in the morning to welcome the world and a beautiful backdrop with the balcony light on for nighttime festivities. The bathroom is cool! Glass walls of the shower and toilet encourage some shared intimacy, but don’t worry, there is a large, thick curtain that can be pulled for privacy around the entire bathroom.

The central atrium stair is very cute with plants and vines hanging as you easily climb up a few stories to the incredible rooftop bar and restaurant. The rooftop is where you’ll enjoy your breakfast in the mornings. The included breakfast menus has (2) safe, regular, breakfast items and a 3rd special item option that changes daily. We had the special every morning with Anais & Daniela and loved it every time. They remembered that my wife couldn’t eat strawberries and wanted to give me her yogurt after the first morning. At night, the rooftop is popping with activity. We got to experience live music by singer Nalu (beautiful voice) while enjoying the tasty menu. We stayed for (4) nights and ended our night chatting with the bartenders (Alejandro & Brian) 3 of those nights. They make some amazing drinks! Alejandro will remember the Mule de Paisas (Moscow Mule with Mezcal).

Last but not least, the front desk staff! Gabriella and Daniela (a different Daniela) were always sooo friendly and fun to talk to. Their English was a great help for me even though I try to say a few broken Spanish words. After the first day, they knew our routine. Every time we went out of the hotel in a new outfit, they would jump up and help us take a picture to capture the look and had fun with it! They also knew that I would always ask for more towels… haha kinda became an inside joke by day 3… :)

All in all, I would highly recommend Somos BOLD to anyone I know coming to Medellín. We actually had the opportunity to visit their sister property for a dinner party, and we weren’t shy to tell Daniella about how we were glad that we chose Somos BOLD. Apparently Somos BOLD is the newer property and I want to say it’s all about the staff because they are killing it and made the place special for us.

Thank you all and we hope to see you next time we are in Medellin!

Absolutely loved staying at the Somos Bold. Perfect location (the Manila neighborhood of El Poblado is so charming!), a lovely and comfortable room, and exceptional service. The front desk staff were all wonderful, especially German and the gentleman who is there in the evenings, whose name we didn’t catch. German messaged me before we arrived to check on the time we’d be getting there, and then he was able to have our room ready when we arrived, several hours before check-in! That was such a pleasure. Our room had a private jacuzzi on the patio, which they also had heated up for us when we arrived—a real treat. The rooftop bar had just opened and is a beautiful spot for a drink or a bite, with good food and incredible views of the city. Breakfast is included and though we only made use of it once, it was also delicious! This place is really a gem, I will be recommending it to others, and would definitely stay again—I very much hope to return to the wonderful city of Medellín! Thanks to everyone at The Somos Bold for helping make our visit so special.
