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.
