We stayed at an AirBnB in Laureles this past week, including weekend nights and a holiday. We had no issue with noise and slept with our windows opened. The apartment was located within walking distance of two grocery stores and many, many restaurants. Uber was easy to use from our location.
To find small, quiet and well located is near impossible for a hotel. If you want a larger hotel, try Dann Carleton. 5 star luxury, well located in Poblado and quiet. A bit cheaper is Hotel Vivre, close to Poblado, smaller and quiet. Ibis is also great, but more of a traveller hotel, it's in a quiet but real cool neighborhood.
As another poster said, AirBnb might be a better option for you.
would you be able to share the details of the AIRBNB? thanks
We stayed at the Ibis close to the Museo de Arte Moderno in the business district but easy access to other places. Close to the food truck area for some excellent food! Some details and photos of our time in te city on our blog @ https:/…
The hotel was simple, inexpensive and very quiet.
Hola! Did you end up getting an air bnb?
PS...some folks have complained about the neighborhood around 61 Prado. But you know... we didn't see it at all - sure its a bit working class - but we were in and out for four days walking always- day and night and never had a problem. Plus the Metro really is a five minute walk... Not A Guide book "five minute walk" and you are one stop from the city centre. The place is a beauty - the cost is so low - I think you will be pleased... watch the video - any questions drop me a line. Have a great trip... :)
I stayed at Hotel Sites which is a 5-10 minute drive to park lleras. The walk is about 15 minutes. Hotel was quiet and comfortable.
The thing about Medellin is that there are many hills so walking could be a chore. For example, El Tesoro mall looks doable on the map but that hill is a killer.
