TravelPod Member ReviewsDann Carlton Medellin Hotel
The Dann Carlton surpassed all expectations. From the moment you enter the lobby, it's old world service. Comfortable, good size rooms, great breakfast and a very helpful bilingual staff.

In the early 19th Century it became a real industrial and economic powerhouse of Colombia with its own railroad to export the coffee! However, the recent history, the arrival of the drug cartels and ...
100 days out of the country... I've learned a lot the past few months and it's hard to believe I'm actually living this life right now; pretty surreal. Anyway... Yesterday, I woke up late and made plans with a girl named Dany who I met through couchsurfing to meet up for a concert later in the night. The band is a Puerto Rican hip hop group that is huge in Colombia. I have heard a bunch of their tunes already and their name kept ...
