We' ve been for one night in the Ayres Hotel to check out the small town of Colonia.

The hotel is just a short walk away from the ferry terminal and also the bus terminal which makes it perfect for any trips from Colonia or to any other destinations in Uruguay.
Rooms been clean and big enough at least for us. Comfortable beds. Breakfast was OK with cheese, ham, fruits, cereals, milk, coffee ... All in all a good start in the day

Reaching the old part of Colonia was very simple from the Ayres. Around 10 to 15 minutes walk. We felt always safe, even late at night.

For dinner we've been in El Porton at Av Gral Flores. For us first time to get in contact with the famous South American Beef. Personally I expected a bit more quality. My piece was quite tough. But perhaps just bad luck.

As a conclusion the Ayres is worth a stay, lots to see around and many restaurants nearby. In September the town is still a bit empty but that made it very pleasant for us.

Stayed: September 2013, travelled with family

The hotel is located within a block of the bus terminal and of the ferry terminal. The hotel was clean, the staff were great and the breakfast was nice. Colonia is a small town, and as such, the hotel is in a good location for exploring the town.

The hotel's location is excellent, a few blocks from the harbor.
The hotel itself was spotless. A relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.
Rooms are comfortable, well lit, with plenty of room for luggage. Excellent breakfast!

Right outside of the local Bus Terminal and Buquebus Boat station. Nice clean rooms with typical Uruguay breakfast, free wifi. Just next door is the best Chivito place in the entire Uruguay (El Eslabon). A couple car rental places just outside the door. Pharmacy, grocery store nearby. Main street is just a short walk away, perfect location to start exploring this great city. I would stay here again.

This is a nice hotel close to the bus station. Modern, clean and very friendly staff. There is a computer in the house for free use and the rooms are clean and stylish. A good place to start explore the lovely town of Colonia.

A good choice. New building, nicely designed to blend with the historic nature of Colonia. Within two blocks of the ferry and visible from the bus terminal. Easy walk into town. Although not large, room had pleasant decor with very comfortable, queen size bed. Some, but not all, reception staff spoke English. Decent breakfast.
Initially worried about noise since hotel is close to the main road out of town and the bus station, but this proved not to be a problem. View from room not great--sandy parking lot and gas station, and then the estuary--but we have had a lot worse!

Good location it’s in front of the bus terminal, besides the buquebus terminal (port) and around 8 blocks from the city center. The facilities are clean and comfortable; the breakfast is very good and complete.
Great option in Colonia
