InterContinental Medellin

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We Have a great time - excellent staff - only the housekeeping didn’t clean the floor in our room in four days and didn’t put new amenities - and only put one little towel every day ! Usually always they put at least two little towels !!

This was my first time staying here. it's a bit of a schlep from Lleras but uber is cheap. The pool is amazing. and the gym is plenty of equipment. breakfast looks impressive but it didn't wow me. room was comfy and quiet though bathroom is small

Friendly staff on the front desk and restaurant who enjoyed practicing their English with us. Facility was clean and functional, but a bit dated. Room was comfortable and quiet.

This hotel is a bit older, but the it was still a luxurious stay. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The hotel is not located in an area where you can walk around, but it is not far from Parque lleras where all the action is. I would definitely stay here again of Inwas looking for luxury accommodations.

Good, staff promptly and efficiently atended issue identified with some guests smoking in a non-smoking hotel.

Excellent hotel but air conditioning not good breakfast buffet excellent

I will definitely stay here again. All around pleasant experience. The bilingual capacity of the staff came in handy. Worth mentioning by name are Santiago, Luís, Jesús, and Oscar. Thanks for making me feel at home!

You can tell the hotel has been around for a while (the bathrooms are very small), but the hotel has been maintained extremely well. No complaints on the rooms whatsoever. The location is nice, but not within walking distance of shopping or entertainment (except for a couple of restaurants). The breakfast was very poor for such a nice hotel. That's the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

All was as expected, in an intercontinental hotels chain, the place is well kept, even not being new, it is organized and rooms are kept nicely. Staff was very helpful and food was great next to the pool....

The overall experience is good since the staff is really nice and the cleanliness of the room is really good. However, that's about it. There are no amenities or shows that you can enjoy other than a pool that most people don't use because of the weather and a piano show that while nice at first it get boring after a few days. If you are going to Medellin you better stay in a less expensive hotel and spend more in other things. I would say that this 80-85 dollars hotel more than that is just over valued.

I am an ambassador level with the Intercontinental chain, so I was upgraded to a two room suite, I am not sure what regular rooms are like, but the room I was assigned was beautiful and huge, great gym and restaurants on location as well. A little far away from other fun places, but taxis are cheap an reliable.

The hotel is very comfortable, the staff was quite helpful. Housekeeping is cleaning the rooms 2 times a day. A great experience would stay here again without question

The thing that made this such an awesome trip were the staff of the hotel. They worked until you were happy with the results. The pool was excellant and the poolside restaurant was something everyone should try. The beds could have been a bit softer but other than that the rooms were 1st rate. I will be coming back here if I ever get back to Medellin.

The staff are always willing to help and always friendly. it makes your stay an thoroughly enjoyable experience! I look forward to my next stay.

The hotel is fabulous, the staff speaks English for the Spanish inhabited...all are willing to help you to enjoy your stay

Helpful staff, good service, excellent food (try the Hato Viejo across the street for some traditional Colombian food). Remember to take the hotel taxis or call for a taxi after dining or shopping. Medellin can be rough, but only if you're not careful. Otherwise, it's a beautiful city filled with beautiful, delightful and proud people!

I have been to this hotel 2 times in the last month. That speaks for itself. I had my meals delivered by room service everyday and the food was excellent. Service was always prompt and the staff was always friendly. This place was better than any resort I have been to in the United States. I used all there facilties: the pool ,spa, restaurants, the bar,and I do not have a single complaint.

Hotel Intercontinental Medellin has a great pool, restaurant, gym and excellent rooms. Only bad thing about the hotel is the location. You have to take a cab if you want to go somewhere (nothing is within walkingdistance).

This is a wonderful hotel with a great professional staff. Great attention to detail and service. The view of Medellin from the hotel is wonderful also. Good restaurant, Olympic size pool and workout facilities. You can play tennis or take a golf lesson at the hotel. There are some very good restaurants nearby. Taxis are plentyful and inexpensive. Be prepared to know some Spanish before traveling here, 1 in 10 people know English in Medellin. The hotel staff is very helpful with communicating to the taxi drivers and helping you get to where you want to go. The hotel is located in Poblado, a nice area in Medellin. I felt safe while there and went shopping at the local mall, DeSoto and in El Centro. I'd definitely stay here again.

THIS WILL BE ABOUT AN ACCEPTABLE PLACE TO BE IN MEDELLIN IF YOU WILL BE ENJOYING THE CITY OUT OF THE HOTEL.
