Horrible service and place to stay. They spy on you and listen to your private conversations. They lie and then threaten to throw you out of the hotel without giving you your money back. Noisy and hard to sleep there. If you want privacy and respect do not stay here.

Understaffed, borderline illegal when they: 1) advertise a breakfast buffett (there is none), 2) no lobby (as they advertise), 3) you must pay if you want a business meeting in your room (they allow x amount of registered people, if you have additional guess for some minutes you will not be allowed unless you "pay" (it is a scam), 4) they do not clean rooms everyday (as they do not have the staff), 5) no ice machines (you must call reception to get ice "eventually"), if you are unlucky you will get a loudy neighbor (nothing can be done), 6) they have NO idea what costumer service means nor they understand the meaning of "costumer retention".... 7) business center is a joke (do jot be misleading ny the pictures)... 8) location is the only plus here, but there are plenty of better hotels around...... in general, this is not the place for you to conduct business.

Dear Mr Gustavo Thanks for choosing us as your hotel in Medellin. We are very sorry that your experience was not good, we try our most to make all our guest to feel nice with us. About the Buffet, we are not allowed to have buffet for guest, we are trying to request the permission from Secretaria de Salud to have assited buffet for guest, we hope to have the approval for december. When you guest in, you must read and sign a docuent that explains the protocol, were it sayd that no external people which is not original registered in the reservation is allowen to check in after as an extra person, you have some extras that were not allowed. About the business center, due to COVID 19, we can only have 1 station of computer and printer. We are very sorry and hope you come back other time to enjoy more your stay with us. Regards Natalia

This was my first visit to Columbia, so I have nothing local to compare it to. The check-in process was excellent, and throughout my stay, I must rate the Front Desk staff as above average. They were friendly, helpful, and very professional. The cleaning staff were also good, and their supervisor was definitely on top of things. and would make corrections without being asked. The location was very good. A safe neighborhood, and within walking distance to one of the best malls, Santa Fe Mall, in Medellin. Santa Fe Mall is also one of the best places to exchange money using your ATM. In Medellin, you get the best rate of exchange using your Debit Card at a secure ATM. Also, the Santa Fe Mall has a nice Supermarket for stocking your room with water, drinks, and snacks. Also, the top floor of the mall has a very large court. My room at the hotel was Spacious with a comfortable bed, a mini frig, microwave, sink, glasses, plates, and a knife & fork. I had the corner room (1103), and the view was great. I did not enjoy the room lighting. I enjoy reading books, and there was not sufficient light at any location in the room for comfortable reading. I also liked the rooftop dining area, an excellent view, and was also a nice reading area, day or night (great lighting). The front desk staff was also very good, and very responsive to any complaint. Great food at the Taco House, located on the 2nd floor in the area in front of the hotel.

I have to rise concerns about my last stay in Holiday Express Medellin during May 6 & 7 2019. Customer service its amazing great ladies and professional gentleman’s. The room it was limited amenities, broken café maker machine, tea, and disable security box (some from the hotel went to check and promise to fixed and nothing happens etc. the sofa bed it was dirty and look nasty because it’s a clear color, absolutely not appropriate because it was dirty. Even though I used my points for 2 night I just stood for one night because I cannot leave my valuables and passports expose. I has been in this property several times, and also ask for a higher floor as state in my preferences but I get a room only at the 8th floor. I hope in the future this property works in room enhancements and better customer service because in the past it was amazing experiences. Best regards
