Posada del Gobernador
Reviewed 8 October 2007

Hotel is centrally located in the historical town and staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a very large and comfortable double room/suite on the ground floor (i believe rooms on the first floor are smaller). Hotel was clean and quiet. Laundry rates are very reasonable and clothing returned within 12 hours! Recommended.

We really enjoyed our three night stay at this little hotel. Fantastic location, right on the old town village square and only a few minutes walk to te water and modern town centre.
We booked a spacious family room, with shuttered windows and a quiet aspect. The rooftop terrace overlooks the old square and an ancient church with bell towers, as well as the scattering of cafes and restaurants. Although we were there in cooler months, it looked just the place for a drink on warm summer day or night.
One restaurant has old cars that are set up for dining on the cobbled street by the alfresco tables - a big hit with our children.
We engaged an English-speaking guide for a walking tour of the old town - highly recommended! There are a number of small museums, local craft and tourist shops, art galleries, a lighthouse and picturesque local streets and archtecture.
The main town has other shops, bars and restaurants that are less expensive and more mainstream.
We found it a welcome break from the bustle of Buenos Aires, but book your ferry through Buquebus early, as the ferries fill up well in advance.
We loved Colonia and hope to stay longer next time.

We stayed here for two nights for our trip to Colonia. It is a nice bed and breakfast, with a helpful staff. Our rooms were average, clean, warm, nice. There was some construction that started early in the morning our first night, so they switched rooms for us for the second night and it was much better. The bathrooms were clean and had hot water, though not a lot of hot water. Each room had its own small water heater, so there wasn't enough for my husband and I to take back to back showers (10-15 minutes of hot water at a time.) Breakfast was included and was average. It is in great location, walking distance to just about everything (including the bus/boat station, we walked to catch the boat back to BA)

We loved this town, although things were more expensive than we were expecting (except the pizza, go to Candela's if you get the chance!) They had great shops, we bought some art there. We also went to Casa Bernardi, a great, small winery a little bit outside of town (take the bus, it is cheap and stops right at the winery.)

After thinking about it for many years, we made the hour crossing of the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires to Colonia. The Posada del Gobernador is a lovely inn located on the main plaza. Room 16 is the best in the house.

The trip is worth the effort as both the charming town and the Posada are tops for relaxing and walking around a local recognized by UNESCO as part of Human Patrimony. You won't be sorry to have visited Colonia and spent at least one night in the former home of the governor, if you like quiet places off season.
