What part of Medellin is the best place to stay?

Anyone have any insight into where in Medellin is the best place to post up for about 4 weeks? Not looking at this as a vacation but more of a remote working deal.

    Hi Billy, if you have a big buget maybe you could find a nice place near to El Poblado or Manila but if you are looking for a local experience maybe Laureles you could find nice place over there, also near to Estadio you find some good places and you keep near to the Metro Estación Estadio for easy move into the city

    El Poblado

    To me, one of the best areas in Medellin is El Poblado, there are many offices, banks, shopping centers and nice hotels such as Hotel Poblado Plaza. I do not have further information than this so hopefully more Trippys can help you out with your request.

    Saludos!!

    I loved Envigado - lively local feel and quite a lot of expat rentals.

      Did you happen to notice any coffee shops with good wifi in this area? How was transportation? Do you remember? This sounds like an interesting area. · (0 likelikes)

      Coffee shops - I worked from the expat shared apartment, it was much more pleasant, but local expats will be able to advise better. Envigado has metro stop and mini buses that are popular everywhere in Medellin. In general it has many affordable places to eat, good market, shops, supermarkets, etc. · (0 likelikes)

    Envigado or El Poblado are good options. In both places you will have a lot of options in terms of accomadations and great restaurants and cafes to work from with free wifi. Personally I have felt very safe in both areas. Taxis are relatively cheap and are a great option to get around to other parts of Medellin during your stay.

    Hi Billy.
    The best place to be at medellin is called El Poblado; is the best neighborhood at medellín, it is secure, clean, have all the types of transport (Metro, Taxi, Bus, etc) you could find a lot of good places to get food and good drink. I highly recommend you find an hotel or hostel on this part.
