Part of a Hostel chain but more hotel orientated. Very close to the old town and overlooking the river by parts of the old railway network. Not far from the ferry and bus terminals and super easy to find. Rooms are clean and well appointed, staff friendly and helpful and breakfast pretty good too.

The location is top notch. It is just outside of the old historic district, a perfect location for exploring the entire city of Colonia. It is also only three and a half blocks from the ferry station. I walked with my extremely heavy roller bag, which can be done, but I would not necessarily recommend it. Take a quick cab... More

This is the perfect place to enjoy the city of Colonia. The Pasada El Viajero is within walking distance of the ferry and bus terminal and the old city (that is why you are here!). The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfy. There is a small roof terrace and all in all it was... More

Good: location, quiet, friendly staff, beautiful vegetation around Bad: tiny, tiny rooms. We travel with only carry-on luggage but had no place to open them. The price too high for such a limited space.

The room I stayed in was on the ground floor overlooking the patio where people can walk. Hot inside, the air doesn't move and I coudn't move neither because the room just a bit bigger than the bad. Definitely overpriced. Probably few rooms overlooking the street are better as the street is very quiet.

Stefania was like an angel who wants to help...Everything was wonderful except the breakfast. El Viajero is always there for los viajeros. In every mistake there is something good. I lost my book and notebook with hand written poems......still thinking Stefania will help to find it.

The only difference between this supposed "Posada" and their hostel is the price. This is ridiculously expensive for what it is: ironically cheap-looking rooms. A real B&B would have better and more soap and shampoo for example, it's like they try to make money out of everything. Those good reviews make me think the other travellers have not travelled much,... More
