A quick walk along the river from the ferry, Posada El Viajero was a welcome respite. Clean, comfortable, hospitable and helpful staff and an excellent breakfast. A great respite for when I wanted to escape Buenos Aires (where I was staying for the winter) for a change of pace! Close to the original settlement and a couple of blocks from... More

We had a very nice stay at this posada. The staff were lovely and helped us with all our questions. The breaky was delicious and there was a kitchen that we sometimes used to prepare some food. We had two double rooms what were both clean, comfortable and bright. The aircon was good and the wifi worked well from the... More

The posada is about ten minutes walk from the bus station and the ferry. Small, but nice reception, good service, clean and spacious rooms, comfortable beds, breakfast included. Tv but no fridge. Rooms have both fans and a/c. It is a lovely, spacious roof terrace upstairs. Some rooms have a balcony. Good sleeping quality. Quiet. The old town is a... More

The room was very clean and bed extremely comfortable. Room included a kettle with tea and coffee. No hair dryer though. Breakfast was... More

I thoroughly enjoyed how friendly the staff was! The breakfast was great, and the room was perfectly comfortable for my two-night stay. The view was beautiful from my window and the room was always cleaned first thing as soon as I left to wander the town.

A solid choice and great value. Location is walkable to the ferry docks, restaurants, and old town, though a bit farther to the beach. South-facing rooms overlook a park and the river, especially the rooms with balconies. Great rooftop terrace – go here for the sunset over the river. It's on a generally quiet street but there is some occasional noise... More

Posada el viajero is off the main drag, which keeps in quiet and peaceful. The room was sunny and cheerful and neat as a pin. Staff were very pleasant and accommodating; we would definitely stay there again on a return trip. Arriving from Buenos Aires, one could easily walk from the ferry terminal to the facility.

A lot of breads with breakfast and a variety of drinks & some fruits along with them, so breakfast was enjoyable. Also, they... More

Enjoyed my stay here and felt very comfortable and relaxed. The posad and my room was attractive. Everything was fine and the staff were quite helpful. Would recommend to others, and would stay here again myself.
