Lots of space, reasonably priced, nice fan in main bedroom, nice terrace and grill, fully stocked kitchen, walking distance to a nice indoor mall, huge grocery store (Exito), Pueblito Paisa, and Parque de Rio (dog park, and children playing). Very close to everything else. $2-3 taxi/uber ride to downtown (El Poblado) and Parque Lleras. Christian is alway available to answer you questions, and he was a gracious host!
Not the best part of Laurels, Ave 33 is very busy and noisy during the day and occasional motorcycle race at night. 3 lanes going each way. Lots of motorcycle dealerships and mechanics. One block away, the neighborhood gets a lot nicer. I found it pretty safe at night, but like anywhere else in the world you have to be smart about it. There was a lot of good things I can say about the apartment, but noise is not one of them. You can hear everything your neighbor does. Talking, music, and watching TV mostly. And you can't shut the windows, because no AC. Also the spiral stairs going all the way up to the third floor are very dangerous. I don't recommend it for Kids, dogs, drunk adults, or if you are just in a hurry.
