“Family Owned and Loved”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

This historic hotel has been in the family for many years. Ricardo, his wife and children will share their recommendations for fishing, boating, horseback riding, and other activities. The beach is wonderful and not too hot like Rio. If you are enjoying the city and countryside, you will love the location. If you are chilling on the beach, you will even more so love the location. Cheers!

It's hard to describe the place. When you enter and look at the reception and the floors, you think, well, nice, a house with history: nice decoration, lovely tiles etc. But once you see the rooms, it's bleak horror: so small you can't turn around. Smelly. Completely loveless. And the bathroom - - well, words fail me. Honestly, do yourself a favour and find somewhere else.

this beautiful swiss style circa 1910 hotel is situated in a strategic part of town. price for our room, breakfast included, was $80 for my wife and i. nice room facing the ocean (rio plata).
the staff was not friendly, seemed annoyed that they had guests (it was winter, july), rooms were very noisy with the nearly constant sound of mini motor bikes until well past 1 a.m.
they did have an indoor pool that was pleasant.

if you have big bucks you might find a more peaceful room at the hotel argintino, $90 per person!

Room Tip: we stayed most nights (11) the hostel playa manta in moldonado just west of punta del este. miguel...

Helpful staff, good breakfast (not outstanding but good), and a fantastic octagon room on the top floor in a historic building overlooking the south Atlantic. Check out the photo.

Room Tip: The top floor octagon room is fantastic!

I ended up staying 2 days in Piriapolis. Lovely town and the Hotel Colon is centrally located. The staff was extremely friendly. Had a family feel. I speak Spanish so not sure what the English level is.

well, you can not beat the location, the hotel is grand! i find the management fixed but a bit flexible when needed.
of course, we are talking about a 100 year old 'palace' in it's day........ for people expecting the ritz carlton, don't do it. however, if you like 'quirky' hotels and can put up with a wee bit of
old(but nice) ambience then i can say, do it.

side note...... your room does make a difference, all are a bit different as i can tell. again, it ain't the holiday inn,..... thank god!

This hotel is run down and not worth the price. The rooms are cramped, too hot and run down, the pool area is awful
