Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
The Viajero Colonia B & B is located in the Historic District, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, facing the River Plate and 300 meters from the Port and the bus station. Our hostel has 14 double rooms and "twin" rooms, all with private bathroom, AC, heating, cable TV and Internet. Other services that we include are breakfast, hot water every day, laundry service, public telephone and bicycle rental. Colonia is considered the most beautiful city in Uruguay, thanks to the museums, the old city, the Playa Mayor, its restaurants and, without doubt, the lighthouse… It has a beautiful view of the city, the parks, the beaches and the beautiful Rio de la Plata. We organize different activities such as barbecues, walks around the city, horse riding on the outskirts and on the beach, visits to museums, tours of the National Parks, tours of the rancherias and cheese shops that make our famous cheese. Visit us and fall in love with Uruguay!

Delightful employees made this a good experience. We rented three rooms for three nights. Rooms are basic but clean, lots of hot water, a simple breakfast and a great location. Best thing: the fans in the rooms are amazing! Something to improve: Towels a little shabby.

There are stairs to the front door (a couple) and interior stair cases, with no elevator. They do, however, have another site a block or two away and I do not know whether that one is more accessible.
