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.

Gente muy simpática y ayudable. Habitación con una cama cómoda y con aceso al balcón. Muy bien situado con conexió de la estación del metro Suramerican a 15 minutos andando.
La estadía en casa de Bertilda estuvo maravillosa, una persona muy servicial y amorosa. Nos sentimos muy cómodos y nuestra bebé de tres meses también lo sintió así. La ubicación es ideal para quienes vayan al Centro de Convenciones Plaza Mayor. Barrio muy tranquilo y seguro.
We had a great stay with Bertilda, she is a lovely lady who is very welcoming! The room is great very clean with a very comfortable bed- exactly like the pictures. The area is near a metro station and la 70 which is great for bars and restaurants. We would really recommend to stay here, thanks again
important to speak Spanish or know the city of Meddlin as you will very little help from your host...rooms adequate ...but had a crazy shower system ...you had to enter from the shower to the toilet mostly wet and if you cant jump ...difficult...some conflict with family members ...married couple upset household...would not return conlict with my smoking on outside patio even with door shut out of downstairs area no warning of this
Hi Dennis, this Javier, yes as advised in the listing and when we spoke prior to your arrival my in-laws spoke zero English. The language barrier is challenging as it severely limits engagement for them to share tips and communicate what to see / do and how to best move around the city. Also there are several times that translation gets "lost in translation" or lots of misunderstandings.
As for the bathroom situation, we'll make it clearer in the listing that guests need to walk through the shower to reach the toilet and sink to manage expectations. It's a different setup, but manageable.
Your daily cigar smoking was too much to bear for my in-laws and brother/sister in law. They were ready to cancel the rest of your reservation. As we discussed about the smoking during your stay even smoking out on the balcony would not be enough as the smoke just overwhelmed the home as it lingered daily. My father in-law's asthma just couldn't take it any more. We'll add to the house rules no smoking on the balcony. Their home is definitely not adequate for someone who's a heavy smoker.
Overall, they learned a lot from your stay and will use the feedback to make improvements. Hopefully you enjoyed Colombia and for next time, maybe you should look at renting an entire place to better suite your needs.
Bertilda's house was lovely! Incredibly clean, cozy & charming- and in a very safe and comfortable neighborhood. We were close to the restaurants & bars on Calle 70, and right by the metro. We loved our stay in Medellin and would definitely recommend Bertilda. She and her family were very sweet, and offered us lots of tips, help with directions, and called us a taxi when we wanted to go out. Thanks Bertilda!
