This loft apartment is on the top floor of the building Gauss, it has a wonderful view and a double height ceiling.
The apartment has a balcony, kitchen, 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths.
Allows comfortably accommodate 2 people in a double bed.

The Space

In addition to the double height ceiling has other interesting architectural touches like a skylight in the roof of the apartment and another in the ceiling of the shower.

Guest Access

The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV and WiFi internet.
The building has a gym, sauna, steam room and 24 hour doorman.

Interaction with Guests

I'm usually contacting guests a week before arrival and a week before departure to coordinate all the details and also to make sure that the apartment is ready for the next guest.
I may not always be present on the day of arrival of each guest but always leave the keys with the doorman and also a written authorization so he knows about the guest arrival.

The Neighborhood

The Lleras Park is one of the most desired places by tourists in Medellin. There are a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs. You might get there in about 5 minutes walk from the apartment but the building is sufficiently far away so you wont listen the natural noise of that place from the apartment.

Getting around

It is possible to walk to the Metro Station Poblado or take a bus on 10A Street that can also take you there.
Once in the subway you can go to different places in the city.

  • This is a great apartment!
    Location very nice, about 10 minutes walk from Parque Lleras, 5 minutes from a big supermarket. Good restaurants very near.
    The apartment itself is great, clean, modern. Loved the balcony, perfect place for breakfast in the morning.
    Felt very safe, guard at reception very helpful.
    Sebastián always replied super fast to any questions.
    Highly recommended.

  • El departamento es muy lindo y en buen estado. La ubicación es a unas 6 cuadras del Parque Lleras y a 4 de Av. del Poblado. El edificio tiene porteros amables las 24 horas. Recomiendo 100% hospedarse aquí.

  • Overall a great experience! Check-in/check-out were smooth, apartment was as described, no surprises and everything you need. Sebastian was more than attentive and a great host. Excellent location, overall I would still rent from here given the option.

  • This apartment was exactly as advertised. The pictures were accurate and the furniture and kitchen were in good shape. The location was good, within walking distance to bars, restaurants, buses, grocery stores, and the Metro. I never once took a taxi from the apartment. The area is safe for walking during all hours for the most part. The balcony is bigger than it looks from the website and offers a very nice view of the skyline. I cooked in the apartment every day and found the cooking equipment adequate to suit my needs. The wifi was the best I have ever had in many years of traveling in South America.
    The apartment is listed as a studio, but the space is broken up nicely and feels more like a 1 bedroom. I spent 12 days with my girlfriend 24 hours a day, and we had plenty of room to give each other space as needed. The guest bathroom away from the bedroom area was nice.
    There were a few minor negatives. I would like to see a TV in the living room area so I don't always have to watch TV in bed. Also, the hot water wasn't great. I had about 3-4 minutes of hot water for showers most of the time. Being a frequent traveler to Latin America, I am accustomed to this and not a big deal for me. There was a washer but no dryer. This is also typical of Latin America. The gym had a bike, treadmill, and plenty of open floor space. I would like to see some dumbbells there.
    Overall I felt this apartment was an excellent deal. Sebastian was very professional and easy to deal with, and he gave me a very good price. I will stay here again on my next trip to Medellin.
    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Response from Sebastián:

    Thanks Kevin for the detailed review. I just wanted to clarify that the problem with the water heater is already solved so now other guests can enjoy hot water for a longer period of time. I also want to apologise for that.

  • Medellin is a glorious city and I can't imagine a better place to enjoy it fully than this apartment. If anything it's better even than the photos and description portray. Sebastian is a complete professional, from first contact through check-out. All the 5-star ratings are very well deserved!

  • Great host and modern, well put together apartment. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Sebastian's apartment was great. The view at night was amazing and the location is perfect. I was surprised to find plates, glasses, can openers, napkins, cutlery etc in the apartment. Awesome! This by far beats the hotel experience and it is pretty cheap. It even has an iron and washer/dryer. The security men are also remarkably helpful. I love Medellin.
