Hotel CharleeMedellin, Colombia
This is the place to stay if you are coming to Medellin to hang out with the cool crowd and party
The hotel and its 42 rooms are stylishly, and at times provocatively, designed. The reception is decorated with old steamer trunks and other travel themed accoutrements. Some of the art throughout the rest of the building is quite edgy and designed to shock. The rooms have big windows with fantastic views out over the city, and some have balconies with teppanyaki grills, which a private chef will come and cook on for you if you want a more intimate meal. The Lucia restaurant serves Italian cuisine in style, with dark wood throughout and mirrored ceilings. There is also a fantastic gym here, which spans three floors and is open to the body-beautiful public. As well as state of the art equipment it holds spinning, boot-camp and other exercise classes.
Without doubt, it’s the nightlife that is the main draw of this hotel, and this happens on the Envy rooftop after the sun goes down. Equipped with a bar and a pool this is THE place to go to party in Medellin, with House and Electronic music at weekends and a more chilled out Lounge feel during the week. Clearly this has implications for noise and traffic throughout the hotel so this is not the place for a tranquil stay away from it all!
