Medellin is the second biggest city in Colombia. This is a metropolis that has gone through a tremendous development in recent years. It is considered one of the greenest cities in Latin America. Many international corporations are located there and national and international tourism increases every year.
The international airport is called Jose Maria Cordova and it is located almost 40 minutes away from the city in the green valley of Rionegro in the midst of mountains, amidst historical little towns and wonderful scenery. The distance to the city makes it necessary for many to spend a night close to the airport. It is for this reason that Movich Hotel Las Lomas is a very good call for travelers who wish to stay their first or last night in the area just steps from the Airport.
Weather is a tricky factor in Rionegro, it is not unfrequent to have cancellations and delays of the flights so once again this hotel becomes very handy. For others it is more than a place for one night of good sleep, and especially when they are coming to the region of Rionegro for business and pleasure they choose to stay in Las Lomas Movich Hotel, since there is very good public transportation to many different towns including Medellin.
The hotel was renovated completely recently, once it was bought by the Movich group who are the owners of Avianca, the national airline. It became one of the first incursions of the group into the hospitality market.
Guests staying there always have words of praise for the service, the facilities and the good value. There is free internet offered through the property, a beautiful outdoor swimming pool, fitness facilities, tennis courts and many manicured gardens. The building is surrounded by breathtaking mountains and nature, most rooms enjoy a wonderful view. People in Medellin are known for their friendliness and that is totally evident from the moment one is welcomed into the hotel.
One can easily walk from the hotel to the airport, but there is as well complimentary transportation being offered. Parking is free. All 146 rooms enjoy free premium TV. There is as well a Spa on site for those looking for relaxation where it is possible to experience wellbeing treatments together with some other amenities such as a Hammam and a steam bath.
One of the pluses for tourists in Colombia is that international travelers are exempt of taxes in the payment of hotel rates. This property charges a little resort fee per night, but it is something like 4 USD.
This area of Colombia is very well known for their excellent gastronomy, there is a restaurant on site, and room service is offered 24 hours a day. Other great typical restaurants are located just minutes away from the hotel. Taxis are always very affordable and it is enough to ask in the reception for recommendations and one will be enjoying a great meal. It is a good idea to take some time to visit the picturesque towns close by, particularly Rionegro, La Ceja, and La Union. Movich Hotel Las Lomas is an excellent property with impressive good value and great service, something that is hard to find in other airport hotels around the world.
