    Hotel porton is good for the reasons you ask. Right across the street from Santa Fe mall, so very convenient.

    Poblado Hotels.

    Any suggestions as to which 4 or 5 star hotel in Poblado is actually the best value? I don't care about girl friendly.

    Well. I simply used booking dot com. But here's the guy's business card in case you're looking to do something more than 30 days (I think that's the limit for booking dot com).

    Good luck!

    San Peter Apartment Suites. Laureles - quick video tour*

    *Edit. Whoops, I thought I could compress and upload a video in a zipped file, but its too big. So, here are some screen captures of the video I took. Not very helpful I suppose, but it doesn't change my post. San Peter Apartment Suites was great!

    I stayed at San Peter mid March 2019 for the first time. I think it was great! I was on the 13th floor. And the manager / owner? Jose was super cool and told me I got a good apartment (I'm withholding which exact one on purpose). Can book direct. Victor is available for transportation back to airport, both speak English (but I didn't use the transportation service).

    - location is great, right off of la 70, plenty of bars and restaurants and Exito and walkable to metro and a few casas I know of.

    - No problems with chicas / guests.

    - cheap.

    - comfortable.

    - A / see in bedroom. But was a bit week.

    - no problem with WiFi for me, and I used the smart TV to stream Netflix, and did plenty of email work.

    - plenty of kitchen utensils and cookware.

    - Philly's sportsbar and another restaurant on ground floor.

    - lots of hoes knew where it was and convenient for them.

    - came with two little terry cloth bath robes which came in handy post session.

    - washer / dryer to freshen up towels and such.

    I plan on staying there again next month. Likely splitting time between here for the local vibes, and then Energy because the girls like the pool.

    Hotel or Airbnb in Poblado.

    Hi,

    Could anyone please recommend a nice hotel or Airbnb in Poblado for around $50 a night with air conditioning and a mini fridge? If it's a hotel I would like free WiFi and free breakfast. Thanks! I'll be in Medellin from May 9-14.

    I've stayed at both and Energy is definitely worth the extra money. The roof top pool is incredible and the building is newer. I stayed there for a month, but that was 4-5 years ago. I had no issues with guests coming to visit. The Blux felt cheap and had a cold vibe.

    Energy pros: The pool, the view, newer, always impresses.

    Cons: The street is very noisy depending which apt you have, I had to use ear plugs 50% of the nights.

    Always read the rules thoroughly if using Airbnb. Some will state outright they don't want sex tourism, etc. - just move on. I often ask the landlord outright.

    Search the forum. I believe that Blux has been reported as not being as chica friendly as before.

    After that they make you sign a waiver indicating 150 mil per guest and about.

    You taking responsibility whatever the situation etc.

    I did talk to their concierge and others to no avail. I am not sure how it works if you make.

    2-3 separate reservations. They also told me if I had my first one come and go 4-5 times.

    It would not be an extra charge.

    I suspect this may be the policy at any of the business type hotels in the area.
    WTF! 150 mil per each visitor over the first for the night, BS! You can get a smoking great motel room for 50 or 60 mil in an upscale love motel. There is always a work around.

    I've walked past 100's of times, but never stayed, or even peeked into the lobby. Interesting location choice. Most likely it is going to be chica friendly. Based on location here's my suggested pros and cons.

    Pros- Inexpensive. Cheap food nearby. Convenient to metro and streetwalkers. Daytime, plenty of shopping options nearby.

    Cons- Probably needs renovation. Furniture likely to be worn out. Noisy day time. Probably lacks air conditioning and chance of breeze is slim. Likely hot and noisy afternoons. Night time the walking street is completely deserted. Might be risky returning late.

    If this is the general area you're interested in, I'd recommend a place that is on a street, rather than the walking street.

    Thanks for the replies. I took your advice and should be setup for success now. I'll place my experiences on my first trip to Columbia in the Medellin general reports forum to pay it forward. Will be down there March 24-29.

    With all the talk about hotels and adjustments not being chica friendly, it has me wondering. If the fine print on an Airbnb don't mention anything, should I reach out to confirm there won't be any issues? Should I just be honest about intentions or just mention having friends over?
