“Great value however there are a few flaws”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

The hotel is unique and interesting by design with themed floors and from a cost performance point of view, it is very good value however there are a few faults.

1. The lack of soundproofing is the top of the list - I could head people clearly talking in other rooms both from the room and the hall and hear the water running in the pipes and unfortunately someone singing in the shower.

2. The restaurant was hopeless for dinner, it wasn't a proper restaurant, just the breakfast area with service from the people completing room service.

3. They didn't have tourist information, not even a map of Medellin.

4. The bathroom is only cornered off my frosted glass, so you can clearly hear the noise from the bathroom and see the light when it is on.

5. The quality of the large blinds were poor, the one in our room was broken and had to be fixed on arrival. Upon use, it was clear why it was broken.

Flaws, aside, the hotel was suitable for the price, the concept is great however the execution is a little off. They do however have a small gym, plunge pool and a business centre which is always a plus.

This hotel is fantastic for the price. The rooms are clean, modern & have everything you would expect from a top hotel but still a boutique hotel. The breakfast was also very good. There are a lot of restaurants on site (which we didn't try) & within a 5 minute walk you are in the centre of the restaurant/bar area Parque Lleras. The hotel is in a great central location in El Poblado. Would highly recommend this hotel.

The only thing preventing a five star rating here was the lack of sound insulation. I could clearly hear all conversations and door closings in the hallway, my air conditioner rattled like an old car, and the hydraulic lines flushed right through the wall adjacent to my room. Granted, I am sensitive to noise, so none of this may bother you.

The staff are helpful and courteous, the breakfast is wonderful, and the room is clean and modern. A good value overall.

Before deciding upon a place to stay in Medellin we researched the various options available and also checked with a good friend who had contacts here. We ended up initially planning to stay in a less-expensive small "boutique" hotel also located in the Zona Rosa for the first week of our trip and then switch to the highly-recommended Hotel Diez for a luxury wind-up to our vacation. But after two nights in the smaller hotel in a very cramped room we decided to switch early to the Hotel Diez.

And what a great decision that was! We found ourselves situated in a mini-museum posing as a hotel. Each of the 5 floors of the hotel is decorated in a theme representing a different part of the country of Colombia. We leisurely wandered each floor, perusing the professionally-designed displays and coveting the carefully selected regional items. We enjoyed staying in two different rooms in the hotel (separated by a trip to Cartagena) and appreciated each for its unique atmosphere. And oh, the breakfasts! Each morning we enjoyed a buffet of fresh fruit, a huge selection of breads and sweet rolls, the local hot rice and bean specialty (paisa), and eggs cooked to order, all washed down with fresh fruit juice, coffee and hot chocolate.

The hotel offers not only free wifi, but also free local telephone calls, free public computers, and free printing on a laser jet printer. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is situated an easy 5-minute stroll from the famous Parque Lloras with its abundance of fine restaurants and night spots. We also found the 20-minute downhill walk to the sparkling new Metro station an enjoyable occasion to observe the hustle and bustle of the city, but we must admit to taking advantage of the $.85 bus ride back up the hill to the hotel. Most of the reception staff speaks adequate English, and the bellhops excel in providing local tips in excellent English.

We hope to again visit Colombia in the future and will definitely include another stay in this great hotel.

Nicely situated and quite. There is an ATM right around the block. There is a great dining area within a 3 minute cab ride. The only thing that prevented me from giving this a 5 star rating is the fact that they have theme rooms. This is not a huge problem except for the fact that I did not appreciate the giant sculpture of a snake that protruded from the wall.
