Not too far from the Historical center, one can see it is an old installed hotel. It does not intend to be a five star hotel, but if you are looking for utility rather than luxury, that is the place for you. It has all the basics. One of the shortcomings result from the room one chooses. The room no,12... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night and enjoyed our short stay very much. Front desk staff is welcoming. The location is great. It's a short and pleasant walk to the center and right around the corner from the bus station and ferry terminal. We just rolled our suitcase from the ferry to the hotel and then from... More

Just a couple of minutes to drag the luggage from the bus/ferry stop and then some 10 minutes to the old town (better than the other way around). Very helpful staff and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was on the unimaginative side.

The Ayres Hotel was really convenient to get to, coming off the Buquebus ferry from Buenos Aires, as it is only three blocks from the ferry terminal. It's also convenient for catching a bus to Montevideo, being just one block from the bus terminal! While the proximity to mass transportation may make the location sound unappealing, it was about as... More

This hotel is fine -- clean, well located, and quiet. The breakfast buffet is very good, one of the best we experienced in a country that doesn't seem to care about breakfasts. Rooms are a bit small but fine for a short visit to Colonia. Takes credit cards.

Stayed here for two nights on March 10th and 11th 2014. The hotel is well located, just a short walk from the Buquebus Terminal, there's no need to take a taxi or remis unless you have an enormous amount of luggage. Its also close to the old part of the city and most of the main shops and restaurants. The... More

Nice little hotel, well maintained and clean. Rooms are rather small, but for just one night stay is perfect. A short walk to the main drag, and close to the bus terminal and the port of Colonia, Definitely will stay here again.

Small, tidy, clean and well serviced hotel. Excellent price - service relation. The breakfast buffet is very good. The service is very good, employees at the hotel are very nice and helpful with guests. Excellent option for a getaway hotel, while passing by/visiting Colonia.

Due to a business trip in Montevideo, I spent one night in Colonia del Sacramento which is about 2 hours away. The historical center is very beautiful and a must see when you are close to it. Despite of that the hotel I slept in was very nice and comfortable. I partially felt home, also because of the beautiful hotel... More

We took the 3 hour Buquebus from Buenos Aires and arrived in the rain which was responsible for what happened next !! We walked to the bus station to check times for Montevideo. Rather than continue to walk in the rain, we decided to take a taxi to the hotel. It turned out the driver didn't know where it was... More
