PROs:

Good location near the center of town. 4 min walk to Mall.

Nice rooftop view.

A/C and Wi-Fi worked well.

Large, clean double room. Crisp white sheets and duvets. Bed was hard, but that's standard in Colombia.

Fridge. No microwave.

CONs:
Location is in a prime area, but not quite in the center. Walking distance to a mall, McDonald's, some cafes, and convenience stores. Everything else is too far to walk to in the heat.

The pool photo was deceiving. The photo shows a wide rectangular lap pool, but it's really only a one-person 3ft wide and 4ft deep swimming lane next to a 1ft deep underwater shelf which is most of the "pool" space.

The water was murky and too warm. Guests needed to reserve the pool ahead of time. The spa was filled, and the jets worked. The water was the same temp as the pool (Barranquilla weather is too hot to enjoy a hot tub).
The pool bar area was closed in July.

Room key card kept demagnetizing. Card needed to use the elevator and to power on room electricity.

This hotel was pricey due to the area, but I'm really surprised it received such a high rating. There was nothing wrong with the accommodations per se, I just felt that there were many better choices.

Nearby hotels I've stayed in before are higher quality at lower prices, but were sold out this time.
Alternatively, the hotels farther north near the Riomar area offer more amenities, better rooftops, and cheaper prices.

Great location and close to everything we wanted to do while visiting. Easy walk to many restaurants. Good hotel breakfast with lots of selections. Shout out to Mayerly Vasquez; always very attentive and coffee cup was never empty. We also utilized the gym which was nice to have; however, it definitely needs some improvements - no TV, very warm, sometimes no water available and equipment is old. I recommend this hotel and will go back for sure.

The hotel was all about service. The front desk, restaurant and housekeeping staff were excellent. In each interaction the staff went above and beyond. We didn't order food and couldn't get Rappi to work. Paula, the front desk attendant ordered for us from her account with allowed us to pay the driver in cash on arrival.

I had previously stayed for several days at an NH Hotel in Bogota where everything was perfect. The experience in BAQ was disappointing.

Problems began with check in. I had reserved a junior suite and when we arrived at 11:00 it was unavailable. Almost three hours later, at 1:45 I was told that the maid was almost done cleaning and it would just be a couple more minutes. I returned at 2:45 and was told it was still unavailable and would not be available until 3:00 (the official check in time). I finally got checked in about 2:55.

The place appeared to be generally understaffed.

The room safe didn't work. At first, it was the battery. I called and they sent someone to fix it. The battery was changed but the thing still didn't work so I was left to carry my wallet, money and passport through the streets of BAQ

Windows were extremely dirty, interfering with what should have been a nice view.

No water in the room and it cost 7,000 pesos to buy a small bottle from the front desk. In a hot climate like this, there should be at least a bottle of complimentary water in the room, but no.

Location was good, and the room itself was fine, which saves them from a one-star review.

I was happy I selected this hotel for my stay in Barranquilla. Location was great, there were many restaurants and stores nearby. The service upon arrival, duration of stay, and check out were truly a 5 out of 5 experience. I felt welcomed and at times felt like I lived there. Every single staff member were friendly to me and helped with anything I needed, I really enjoyed that the most. The Junior suite I selected was stylish and comfy. I will definitely be back. Aloha from Hawaii!

Had the pleasure of staying at this hotel during a brief visit to Barranquilla.

I was warmly greeted by Jose Ochoa, who was exceptional throughout and happy to assist or provide suggestions.

The hotel is modern, clean and the junior suite was spacious and comfortable. The rooftop pool was beautiful and helped to set it apart.

Taxi's are cheap throughout Colombia so was easy to get around (I used Uber). Would certainly stay here if I returned to Barranquilla.

Having stayed at a few NH Collections across the world, this certainly exceeded my expectations.

Ok value for the location and services. Nothing special, rooms are a bit tired, the state of furniture can be a lot better. Room service was fast and good, however, very inefficient way of conducting business. Seems to have to pay for it instead of charging to the room. Despite the fact that i have left my CC on file but this seem to be confused with it. Never seen anything like this before at a hotel.

I have been traveling for decades and this is the best hotel I have ever enjoyed. The daily cost for the room was much less than expected for the great value. The staff were excellent and gave incredible service. The all of the reception desk staff and especially Javier in the restaurant gave perfect service. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent. The room was very clean and comfortable, and even the WiFi was fast and sufficient for everything I tried to do from e-mail to Netflix streaming. The room was quiet on a quiet street but near many restaurants and even a convenience store. The pool was nice, and the view of the city from the pool was incredibly beautiful. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Barranquilla

Stayed at the NH Collection for a few nights on a business trip. Location is pretty central to some good restaurants. This is a good choice for a business traveller not wanting to spend on a luxurious hotel. Very good breakfast and very friendly staff. I found my room clean and the hotel in good shape. This is not a luxurious hotel but a well managed, business style hotel so adjust expectations accordingly.
