Where to stay in Medellin

El Poblado, an upper-class neighborhood south of the city center, offers the widest range of options. Sticking to this area allows you to enjoy the city's nightlife and food culture, although you'll likely pay above average prices. The neighborhoods of Laureles and Estadio, in the city's inner-west, are known as safe, family-friendly areas to stay, while the city center offers the best range of luxury accommodations.
