Best Hotels and Apartments in Medellin

Image
So what are the best hotels to stay at in Medellin?  Sure there are many excellent furnished apartments for rent by owner but there are also some really good hotels.

Accor is the the world's leading hotel manager and market leader in Europe. Accorhotels.com is the Accor's international and multibrands website offering almost 4,000 hotels in 90 countries and 13 brands from budget to luxury.

Medellin also has a Best Western (bestwestern.com) that is located in ElPoblado.  The hotel is on a hill overlooking the city and is in a very nice and safe part of Medellin.  I was surprised to see the famous BestWestern logo while driving in Medellin. The hotel looks very nice.

If you prefer to stay the furnished apartment route then check out corporatehousingbyowner.com where you can find some great deals on really nice apartments throughout the city.

I would also recommend FlipKey which is now part of Tripadvisor.com .  They have really good apartments and we have 2 apartments listed…

10/22/13 - Medellin Space Tower Collapse Update

10/23/13-Space Tower Update:

Yesterday another body was found in the rubble.  Initial reports are saying that the bodies were found close to what used to be the stairs in the collapsed towers.  It also seems the inspector who granted the construction permits was not exactly on top of his game.  The inspector did not pass his examination to be reelected.  The examination is to test basic knowledge of the job requirements.  So in order to grant construction permits one must be somewhat knowledgeable about construction and engineering I would assume.  What a shame!




Retiring in Medellin Colombia?

Found a great blog today for Ex-Pats living in Medellin Colombia.

Though we are currently renting out the furnished apartments in Medellin when we are not in the city I cannot wait to retire and move to Medellin in 5 years.

It is such an energetic city with so much going on but at the same time a very peaceful way of life.  For some reason things seem much simpler there and I am always less stressed there.
