The Neighborhood

We love this neighborhood because its safe and centrally located to just about everything. During Christmas you can see the lights down the river. I can easily get around the city in minutes to the popular areas but can also avoid the traffic that comes with living in Poblado. Staying here will give you a true locals feel in Medellin.

It's easy to get around, we can call you a taxi to where ever you need to go. The taxi's here are inexpensive, the minimum is 4,500 pesos. From the airport in Rio Negro you can take a taxi which is 55,000 pesos or you can take the bus for 12,000 pesos and then take a cab from San Diego and it will be about 5,000 pesos. Very easy to get to the home, it's in Barrio Conquistadores a very safe area of Medellin.
The metro is also nearby as well just a short ride with a taxi.

  • La estadia donde la señora Bertilda fue satisfactoria, todas las personas de la casa fueron muy amables y serviciales, la habitación es muy comoda y fresca, además de estar muy bien ubicada, es un lugar muy tranquilo y seguro cercano a todo. muy recomendado para las personas que quieran viajar a Medellín.

  • My girlfriend and I had a lovely time in Bertilda's house. The family and the other guests were very friendly and there was plenty of space and privacy. There is also a kitchen, which we used on multiple occasions. The house is in a nice neighborhood, pleasantly separate from the main tourist areas. But due to the excellent metro system, you still have easy access to the whole of Medellin. I would highly recommend Bertilda's house to anyone traveling to Medellin.

  • Make sure you have the full address before showing up. You need both the Carrera and the Calle numbers, and the house number.

    Las conquistadores is a beautiful, serene, upper middle class neighborhood not far from the center of the city, the Metro (subway) stops, and the freeway into and out of Medellin. It seems to have smaller apartment buildings, more single family houses, a series of small urban parks that are delightful and all the amenities you could ask for. The grocery is a pleasant walk away along the canal,

    Bertie's house is airy, with good light and is in good physical condition. Your room will be one flight of stairs above the ground floor, and will have a TV that works, and internet. The connection is better downstairs, but works upstairs. The bath is right across the hall and was quite private for us. You can eat nearby or cook for yourselves in the kitchen.

    The house is quiet and serene, the bed and the pillows was the most comfortable we had in Colombia. We had a great time with our hosts Bertilda and her husband, and enjoyed meeting other relatives who came by to visit. Bertilda is gem, a darling, who has everything prepared for you before you arrive. She will give you a section of the frig, and the counter, and a plastic box with the dishes to use, and will help you find anything you require.

    The house felt very secure. There is a locked gate, a locked door to the house, a lock for your room and a locking cabinet in your room. We were out in the neighborhood at odd hours and felt safe, but did not try being out after midnight.

  • Nos gustó mucho nuestra estadía en Medellín con la señora Bertilda. La habitación estuvo muy limpia cuando llegamos y el espacio en general estuvo muy cómodo.

    La ubicación de la casa realmente era ideal para nosotros, en un barrio seguro y bastante tranquilo, cerca de un supermercado y otros sitios de interés. Por la época del año (justo antes de las fiestas) y por el tema de los alumbrados en el río de Medellín, escuchamos bastante ruido en la noche, pero pensamos que en cualquier otra fecha no pasaría.

    La señora Bertilda fue muy amorosa con nosotros y nos hizo sentir muy cómodos en su casa. Siempre estaba disponible para responder cualquier consulta o pregunta y lo pasamos muy bien conversando con ella y con su esposo.

    En general, recomendaríamos a todos una estadía donde Bertilda, gracias por todo!!!

  • Bertilda hat ein sauberes, schoenes Zuhause und hat uns geduldig und freundlich alles erklaert. Trotz nicht vorhandener Spanisch-Kenntnisse unsererseits hat alles gut geklappt. Die Unterkunft ist in einem tollen Viertel. Wir durften die Kueche und die Waschmaschine benutzen. Es war schoen, vielen Dank!

  • Desde mi parte y la de mi pareja, decimos que "Berti" es un AMOR DE PERSONA.
    De todos los lugares que hemos viajado en Colombia, esta bella dama nos hizo sentir en casa con su amabilidad paciencia y AMOR.
    Una casa muy agradable, centrica y tranquila donde les ASEGURO que NO se van a Arrepentir.
    Definitivamente volvere a visitar a esta persona la cual se convirtio en una nueva amiga.

    Solo queda decir que: EL QUE COMENTE ALGO MALO DE MI QUERIDA "BERTI" LO CASCO !
    jajajajaa.....

    Se los recomiendo

  • Bertilda was very nice and accommodating during our stay. She helped us with using the public transportation and let us wash and dry our clothes in a covered patio so the rain wouldnt affect the drying. The home had a lovely balcony and comfortable bed. It is located conveniently near the laureles neighborhood for restaurants, and to a main road for local buses or taxis.

  • We had a wonderful time with Bertilda and her family! She was overly helpful in making sure the cab driver found his way to her place.

    She gave us a tour of the house, offered up the refrigerator and washer/dryer for us to use. The house was clean, the room was large and comfortable, and the location was safe and convenient to many nice areas of Medellin.

    The balcony on the 2nd level was wonderful to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the weather. Highly recommend.

    Can't wait to return! BTW, everyone in the house speaks only Spanish so be sure to brush up before you arrive.

    October 2013
  • Bertilda is absolutely lovely. She's welcoming and incredibly helpful. The room is exactly as it appears in the listing. I couldn't have asked for a better stay or a better host. I would definitely stay here again if/when I go back to Medellin.

    *Nobody in the house speaks English, so brush up on your Spanish before you go.

  • Bertilda and her family was really great host. One of the family members even invited me out the first night for a drink. The house is great and quite centrally located. Wifi and internet speed was great. Even when I got a sick for a few days, Bertilda made sure to check on me and even gave me a nice meal once I was well again. Definitely would recommend staying here if you are in Medellin for a few days or better if you have more time.

    My only complaint was not having enough time to stay EVEN longer. Gracias! Hasta luego!
