Some info about Medellin
Medellín is surrounded by 8 smaller towns and together they form the Area Metropolitana.
The International Flower and Orchid exhibit: every year in August at the Botanical Gardens
Pueblito Paisa is a reconstruction of a typical but tiny Antioquia village.
Los Alumbrados, the christmas lights decorating Medellin, make it the most beautiful Latin American city for the holidays.
Ferrocarril de Antioquia - Old train station is a fine building at the corner of City Hall and the Governor's Hall.
The Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellin (MAMM) has now 2 sites. The original is a small building near Suramericana and Carlos E. Restrepo neighborhoods, hosting the traditional exhibits.
Catalina was a gracious remote host, very communicative in English and Spanish and had a woman wait for us at the apartment to let us in. The rooms were modest but comfortable; no AC was not a problem in July though we were glad of the fans. The location felt quite safe and was close to lots of good restaurants and two good grocers, as well as the touristy bar street - though not so close that it was noisy. There was some regular street noise. 8-minute walk to Poblado rail station and frequent buses to downtown one street over. Nice kitchen, our own washer-dryer (at least in unit 302). Perfect home base.
Nice cozy apt. It's not luxurious, but it's comfortable. Great location right across from Park Poblado, less than 5 min walk to Lleras, and it's on a side street so you don't have the noise and can get a quiet nights sleep. Also worth noting... the "Don Percho" restaurant downstairs has really good chicken burgers.
The negatives: the bathroom is quite small and the plumbing could use a little repair. There's also a bit of an ant problem. Again, these were all minor issues and weren't severe enough to bother me, but they might be a problem for someone else.
El hospedaje nos gustó muchísimo, desde el recibimiento hasta la salida. El lugar es muy cómodo y acogedor. El dormitorio es amplio para guardar las pertenencias en el closet y tener un buen descanso. El baño se encuentra dentro del dormitorio, la cocina tiene los implementos suficientes para cocinar. La lavadora y secadora nos ayudó muchísimo cuando la lluvia nos agarró estando en la calle. La sala es cómoda y se puede tener una bonita vista de las alturas de la ciudad. En conclusión, nos encantó el lugar. Además, la zona es muy segura y tranquila, está muy cerca al parque El Poblado, desde donde sale el TuriBus de Medellín, muy cerca también a supermercados para conseguir víveres para cocinar, Centros Comerciales para pasear o comprar, y hasta varios restaurantes muy buenos para comer. El Metro queda también cerca, uno puede ir caminando sin problemas hacia la estación El Poblado. El Parque Lleras está también cerca, uno puede llegar caminando en 5 - 10 minutos y divertirse, comer o comprar ropa. Definitivamente es un lugar que recomiendo. Yo me alojé con mi enamorada y una compañera nos visitó durante 2 días, así que el sofá cama fue más que suficiente para que pueda descansar. Cuando vuelva a Medellín (porque pienso volver) definitivamente me alojaré nuevamente aquí, fue una linda experiencia.
El barrio muy bien, las fotos corresponden, pero a Catalina no la vi nunca, ni para recibirme ni para despedirme... mucho menos para ayudarme con lugares para conocer, o forma de trasladarme en la ciudad. Es una lástima porque el apartamento está muy bello, bien equipado, limpio y en una excelente ubicación.....
Hola Maria Isabel,
Disculpa que no fui muy clara o no leíste la información mía pero yo no vivo en Medellín sino en Florida, por lo que me queda imposible conocer los huéspedes.
Mas espero en otro momento tenerte nuevamente y poderte conocer en persona y ayudarte con todo lo que necesites.
Great apartment and Catalina was always available if needed. She kindly let me check out late as nobody was checking in. Recommended!
This apartment is the best choice for the price and location. Simple but adequate. I had previously rented something close to Parque el Poblado but it was very noisy at night. In Catalina's apartment I did not have any issues at all. Everything is close by: public transportation, supermarket, banks, food establishments galore and of course Parque Lleras+nightlife. Coming from the US many would say that AC is needed but my gf and I did not need it at all. Will def rent from Catalina again who had the patience to deal with me as an airbnb first timer and was quick to answer all my emails. Thank you Catalina, we shall see you soon.
The unit that we rented was a third floor walk up. It was located on a side street which was nice because it did not have a lot of noise. The bathroom door was a tight fit which required a little muscle to close. Also, the toilet flusher would get stuck and the wáter would continue to run until we opened the lid to push the lever down to stop the running wáter. I overlooked the fact that the unit is not air conditioned, but rather has 2 large fans. For Americans who are accostomed to air conditioning, this may be a factor in making a decision. There were ants on the kitchen sink and in the bathroom floor immediately ahead of the toilet. Other than these minor inconveniences, the apartment was great. The apartment was clean, there were pots and pans, dishes, cups plates, and utensils adequate for 2 people. The unit is 5 blocks from Parque Lleras and close to all the excitement of the área. Also, the unit is quite spacious. Carolina was very responsive and easy to work with.
