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

Simple and nice. 5-minute walk from anywhere: city centre, port and bus terminal. Discreet breakfast. Friendly staff. I would definitely stay here again! Mind you, this is a hotel; this chain owns a hostel nearby so be careful when you make yor booking.

Location was the best thing about this hotel, very close to the Ciudad Vieja and the ferry and bus terminal. We got am a I when we came in on the ferry, who took us to another El Viajero farther away. I had looked it up on Google Earth the night before so I knew it was the wrong hotel.... More

I only had one day in Colonia and would recommend Posada El Viajero. I had a room on the ground floor which was en suite, the whole posada was nicely decorated, breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. Location is very close to the old town.

We loved it. We booked 6 of the 10 rooms for a wedding we had to go to at the Sheraton. It was cute and small, family friendly, good breakfast and good service. Great location and price! We were right there from the old center and also walking distance from the downtown. The only downside... the humidity of the bathrooms... More

The hostel has a great location within easy walking distance to both the ferry port and the old city. The rooms are variable, from quite nice to small and a bit dingy. Staff was friendly and helpful and rudimentary English as spoken. It seems that the inn is frequented mainly by groups of young travellers on day trips from Brazil... More
