I'm an Actor, I've studied in New York and LA, i love traveling and learning about new cultures.
El apartamento es tal como luce en las fotos, es perfecto para dos personas y esta muy bien ubicado. Santiago fue muy amable y siempre estuvo disponible para atender nuestras preguntas e incluso aconsejarnos sobre qué hacer en Medellin. Recomendado.
Santiago, was helpful when after my arrival there was no information regarding connecting to the internet.
The apartment was clean and the bed comfortable, however I wouldn't recommend the apartment to another traveler. It's in a commercial building, not an apartment building. The toilet leaked and was broken, you had to turn the water on and off after each use. If you didn't the water would continually run. To take a shower, you had to hold the hand held device in one hand because there is nothing on the wall for it to attach to.
Response from Santiago:
As of November 21/2013 The toilet leaking problem has been fixed and the shower head has been replaced in order to provide for a more comfortable stay.
This was a truly wonderful studio apartment for my stay (two weeks) in Medellin. It's location is easily accessible by public transportation and the complex where it is situated is a travelers delight with several good restaurants, cafe's with bakeries, a fish and meat store, pharmacy and bodega or "corner store" with outside seating. The apartment is cozy with a great view of the hillside. The bed is very comfortable and the flat screen 50 inch TV was a new experience with lots of movie channels. The outside noise during traffic rush hour was a bit intense but a closed window took care of that problem. The only inconvenience is there is no telephone in the apartment. I was able to contact Santiago through the porteros or door/security folks for the complex. The clothes washer works great. The shower is hand held and not attached to the wall so it is a bit difficult/awkard to use. The two pans are old and need replacement but these were brought to the attention of Santiago who was very responsive. One unexpected delight was the famous castle museum "El Castillo" and gorgeous gardens is only five blocks away. Supermarkets and other shopping areas are only a 15 minute walk down the hill. I would definitely stay here if I was to return to Medellin. I recommend it very highly for a short or long stay.
Love the place. Great view, and extremely convenient, It's in shopping area there are 5 places to get food right outside your doors.
I would rent again if going alone next trip.
small and cosy flat in a really nice area
Santiagos' apartment was great! There are restaurants, stores, and even a pharmacy below where you can recharge your mobile phone if needed. Place was clean and well kept with all the amenities(wifi, washer, dishes, tv/cable, iron/ironing board). The apartment is situated in Los Balsos and is very picturesque...I definitely would recommend Santiago's apartment to everyone, plus Santiago and his sister were very attentive hosts. Great apartment, great host, great location. A+++!
Santiago junto con su hermana, fueron unas personas muy atentas y excelentes host. Estuve 5 días con mi esposa y definitivamente recomendamos este lugar
El apartamento queda ubicado dentro de un mini mall el cual esta destinado para vivienda y comercio, lo cual es muy conveniente para una visita. hay dos droguerías 24hr y alrededor de 6 restaurantes con tan solo bajar al primer piso. La ubicación es muy buena, como es en la parte alta de Medellín es un apartamento fresco donde ventea lo cual es muy agradable en días calurosos.
Frente al apartamento pasan buses alimentadores que lo llevan a uno hasta el metro y de ahí a cualquier parte de Medellín. En taxi queda cerca de los mejores restaurantes y discotecas de medellín.
no duden en rentar el apartamento
The apartment in very good condition and is located in a very nice area of Medellin
Good location, run by a good family.
