What do I mean.!! Colonia has one of the best sunsets in the world, so depending how long you stay you must find a great spot to clap the sunset... At the Colony they have a viewing balcony just for this purpose..so enjoy it.. Now the hotel says 5 star but it is not. The rooms are ok but walls... More

Terrible hotel. The staff was very rude, my bedroom had cigarettes smell, and they didnt move a finger to Fix it. the hotel is too dark, and there's only a tiny light into the room. Play room is abandoned. a room service, changing towels, making up the bed, (it was 9pm) was very late. When i complained about it ,... More

Very good hotel with plenty to do. Rooms are quite big with Asian decoration, Although they may have some greater detail distinction. The facilities are very spacious, has a large pool in which multiple activities are performed and other heated in-door pool. To highlight the spa is amazing with two minimalistic yacuzzys where you can perform many activities. The breakfast... More

It´s a real shame this former Kempinsky hotel hasn´t been well maintained to its previous standard. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable but the paper thin walls may disrupt your rest by your next door neighbour´s conversations, telephone rings etc. According to the Receptionist all rooms have that defect and those on the top floors complain about hearing the...

Staff was inconsiderate and rude with me when I asked for an extra towel and said they didn't have any. When my sister went to ask the same thing suddenly their tone changed and they were willing to accommodate her. They said they would send up the towels right away. The towels never came. Additionally, the pillows had bugs on... More

This hotel is decadent. The employees are inconsiderate. There isn't confort and privacy in the room, beside this, it's dirty and poorly maintained. The tap water is brown and there are a lot of pigeons living in the hotel roof. It was a complete bad experience!

Just came back from 2 nights in this hotel a friend chose to get away from the city. I am sure this hotel has seen better days, but they are long gone. The arquitectual and interior design are terrible. The mattress was so bad, that in the middle of the night I ended up sleeping on the floor, which was... More

I visited Colonia for three nights, using it as a base of operation to also make a quick trip over to Montevideo and back. The price made the stay well worth it, but this hotel is outside the historic part of the city. The main benefits for staying here were the price (we got separate rooms), and te pools. The... More

I was intrigued with the design of this hotel,it had a blend of Asian(Chinese and Thai) designs along with western.It was not what I expected to find in Uruguay which was a nice surprise. The price was very good for what you got-we came during the slow period. The rooms and the facilities were nice as well as the buffet... More

The five stars on the hotel front do not reflect the true quality of this hotel. When I drove up to the dirty parking area in front of the hotel, I knew that there would be trouble. Upon entering the hotel and going to my room, my first impression was confirmed. When I sat down on the bed, it sagged... More
