The room is very small. The bathroom is not good. The breakfast is served in another place near the hotel. The positive point is the location, very closed to the old city; and the staff, very helpful.

The staff were very friendly. My family of 4 stayed 1 night. They let us store our luggage while we explored the city since our ferry did not leave til 9pm. They let us use their bathroom and common areas whenever we tired of walking. This is not a 4 star hitel, but a great option for travelers on a... More

I stayed here for 1 night in a ensuite twin room. This hotel is about 10 minute walk from the ferry/bus terminal and also about 10 minute walk to visit the UNESCO old town. The room rate was reasonable in view of the room quality and location. The reception is small and checkin process was simple. The whole hotel is... More

We spent 1 night here & were quite satisfied. It's a decent, clean place with a nice patio. The breakfast is across the street at another hotel, and it was ok. Toast, croissants etc. you could have as much as you like. But, we decided to stay 2 more nights in Colonia because we loved it so much. I searched... More

Stayed here two nights and was okay for what we needed. Rooms are small but super clean and lots of hot water. Colonia is a typical seaside town with everything priced for tourists. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was across the street in the hostel. We were given an assortment of pastries, jam, dulce de leche, bread for... More

The place has very basic and the rooms are mostly overpriced. They are also a little dark, so not recommended for claustrophobic. At half the price would have been a good catch. Breakfast is served at their hostel 50 mt ahead and is the poorest excuse of a meal I have ever seen. The place is clean and quite well... More

The hotel is near old town and restaurants on the main road. The rooms are small, but on the bottom floor they all face a courtyard. Spent a lot of time in the courtyard since the rooms are a bit dark. I would recommend the rooms on the bottom since the stairs are very narrow to carry luggage. The breakfast... More

The breakfast room and patio overlooks the Rio de la Plata and our room facing the interior court yard was quiet and clean.

This is a nice budget hotel. It was clean. The breakfast was small, but nice. The breakfast room overlooks the river. The location was excellent.
