What stands out about Elcielo Hotel, aside from the incredible restaurant that calls it home, is its sleek modern design. This new luxury boutique hotel is finished to the highest of standards with natural materials of woods, cottons, linens and marble and the large windows bathe its interior in the abundant light provided by the 'city of the eternal spring'. This elegant style extends outside to the rooftop pool, an area surrounded by loungers with towering and creeping plants providing cool shaded spots, offering a tranquil oasis in Medellin with views out across the city. The hotel is located in a prime position, just 350 yards from El Poblado Park, our favourite area to stay in Medellin and in close walking distance to great restaurants, cafés and bars.
This beautiful and sleek design extends into all guest rooms, where you have the option of Superior Suites, Junior Suites, Luxury Suites and the Presidential Suite to choose from for your stay. All rooms include a king size bed, flat screen televisions with satellite channels, air conditioning, luxury amenities and designer finishes. The Junior and Luxury Suites include an in-room Italian style bath tub for an opulent touch and the Presidential Suite a luxury jacuzzi and separate lounge area. 24 hour front desk and room service is also available for all guests.
Any stay would be incomplete without a dinner reservation at Elcielo Restaurant, which serves up creations that scintillate the senses, employing the finest local ingredients and the most exciting flavours. Colombia is at the heart of Elcielo's menus, thanks to the ingredients and the mix of modern and ancient cooking methods used in the preparation of every dish. As one of the hottest places to eat in the city, we recommend letting us take care of a dinner reservation in advance for you.
