Hotel Plaza Mayor is right off one of the main squares in Colonia. We thought the location was perfect for wandering the town. Our room was large, very clean and nicely decorated. There is a central courtyard with lovely plants and a water fountain and chairs for relaxing outside your room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ample.

We enjoyed this beautiful hotel in the old city.
Most pleasant. The staff were helpful, the location perfect, and the courtyard wasvery quiet and relaxing.
The hotel is in the heart of the old city and one can easily walk to all of the sites in old Colonia.

The posada is located on one corner of the main central square in the old town. It is a lovely location convenient for wandering the streets of the historic centre. We booked a colonial standard which faced a central patio complete with fountaIn and a lovely garden. Chairs are provided to sit outside the room - perfect for spot of late afternoon relaxation.
The rooms themselves are very traditional. Although the bedroom furniture and bathroom fittings are a few years old, all work perfectly well and the room was spotlessly clean. The room we stayed in had a high beamed and tiled ceiling giving a spacious feeling. The bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast the next morming had a good selection of food including breads, pastries, juices.
Highly recommended for a stay in Colonia.

Might not be your modern sleek five star hotel but it is full of character and very peaceful/restful in a brilliant location.the rooms open onto a beautiful courtyard all adding to the ambiance. The staff are very helpful.

Very nice colonial rooms around a shady patio with a fountain - a peaceful romantic setting in the centre of the old town and in walking distance of everything. Bathrooms are rather small, breakfast simple (standard Uruguayan breakfast), the lack of good coffee is made up by a good tea selection. Very friendly staff.

It is definitely worth staying in Colonia for more than one night which is what most people do.

It's a lovely little town but the hotels seem to take advantage by overcharging for what they are delivering.

As other reviewers have said, this is a charming little hotel, with a very pretty central courtyard and it has an excellent location. But for $200 for the night, I think you should expect more than an uncleaned room with faulty aircon when you check in ( the staff did react quickly and just changed our room without a fuss to be fair), a rather tired looking decoration and a positively terrible "breakfast" which hardly deserved the title.

So we have marked this hotel down as we believe there must be better options in Colonia.

This is a lovely historic building with a beautiful courtyard in a very good location.

Some of the room facilities are a little odd like the shower control coming away from the wall when turned and the basin tap not flowing into the basin but allowing water to pour onto the floor.

The breakfast was rather basic and not very well presented.

Like most things in Colonia it probably does not represent great value for money.
