With its sleek marble lobby and ample meeting spaces, Las Lomas is well suited to business travelers. The guestrooms are serene in beige and white, with blond wood wall panels. But the sprawling pool and verdant grounds (think mature eucalyptus and palm trees) give the property a tranquil vibe. There are plenty of opportunities to unwind: in the hot tub, on the tennis courts, at the bar or in the guestrooms’ spa-like marble bathrooms. A gym, soccer field and three restaurants round out the amenity roster.
In the Area
Rionegro, at 7,000 feet above sea level, is a sea of whitewashed buildings topped with terra-cotta roofs and has a romantic colonial charm. The Catedral de San Nicolás el Magno, built in the 17th century, is among the city’s stunning landmarks, while the surrounding Andes Mountains provide for some dramatic scenery. Nearby Medellín, about a 45-minute drive from the hotel, is one of Colombia’s largest cities (check out the city’s Metrocable for stunning views of this growing metropolis).
How to Get There
A very nice and well equipped hotel located close to Rionegro airport, which is the main airport for Medellin.
The room was of average size but had everything needed for a comfortable stay.There isn't any English language television programming. There is a cafe/bar where you can get drinks and snacks, also a full service restaurant with a menu that is quiet varied. Don't get confused about the pricing on the menu, it appears to be in US dollars but it is in pesos, eg a steak dinner was priced at $46, but actually it is 46000 pesos which is around $14, very reasonable. There are also tennis courts and an outdoor swimming pool, and each morning a very extensive breakfast buffet. Overall I had a very good experience.
The hotel is great for business at the airport and the surrounding areas. The hotel is clean and well kept. The breakfast was fantastic. fresh fruit and fresh juice everyday. The bartender went out and squeezed fresh oranges for our drinks, I have never seen that before.
Hotel is close to airport and shuttle very practical. Area has developed more so it's easy to go find nice places to eat close by.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
Room was clean and spacious.
I love their breakfast.
