Also, lockers are available where you can store your laptop or valuables, so you can make sure your belongings are safe while taking a walk around to clear your mind.

- Queen our double-size bed
- Private bathroom

In addition, if your thing is working from the comfort of your hotel room or Airbnb, you can use the workspace at the desk in your loft. There you can also enjoy the high-speed fiber optic wifi and get your work done without any problem.
If you don’t want to test your cooking skills in the kitchenette, you can always order something from the hotel restaurant. SMASH Avocadería is located in the lobby, or there’s a BBC beer station if you just want a drink.
Another great advantage of the location of Factory Lofts Coworking is its proximity to La 70, the party and restaurant street where you can enjoy the Laureles nightlife. Once you’ve got the party started at the beer station, put on your dancing shoes and hit the streets.
Pro tip: The chocolate and protein pancakes with a base of cocoa, banana, and vegan protein from SMASH are to die for! They come accompanied by a mix of banana, cranberry, Greek yogurt, cocoa nibs, and maple honey on top. Perfect to get the energy you need to start working!
Take a Dip in the Pool After Work
Then, after a long hard day’s work, you can have some me-time and take in the city view on the eighth-floor terrace.
There you can enjoy one of the best rooftop pools in Medellin and get a perfect tan while enjoying a drink from the bar.
The pool is heated, but honestly the best way to clear your mind after burning the midnight oil is to cool off in the pool and then warm up in the hotel jacuzzi.
Keep in mind that you have to request the jacuzzi service at the front desk in advance (thirty minutes should be enough). Make the request at the beginning of the day when you check in for work so that it’s ready to go once you finish!
