This hotel has lots of potential but doesn't come close to living up to it. The location is ideal and the building is a nice old one with a lovely garden. The room we had was average, at best, with, as other have noted, a need to up grade. But what really moved this place down was the service. It... More

We are just finishing a 6 week trip in Argentina, chile, and Uruguay . I was disappointed in the hotel. We got a room on the newer floor. It was musty, with old, stained carpet. Black mold around the sink. We saw very nice colonial rooms off of the patio. This was not one of them. Service was mediocre. The... More

The definition for the Plaza Mayor Hotel would be: the location alone does not make it a great lodging option in Colonia. You stay here and you can leave your car parked because all the touristic attractions are at walking distance from the hotel. The staff is very kind , but the hotel looks old fashioned (not precisely XVII century... More

Hotel Plaza Mayor is right off one of the main squares in Colonia. We thought the location was perfect for wandering the town. Our room was large, very clean and nicely decorated. There is a central courtyard with lovely plants and a water fountain and chairs for relaxing outside your room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was... More

We enjoyed this beautiful hotel in the old city. Most pleasant. The staff were helpful, the location perfect, and the courtyard wasvery quiet and relaxing. The hotel is in the heart of the old city and one can easily walk to all of the sites in old Colonia.

The posada is located on one corner of the main central square in the old town. It is a lovely location convenient for wandering the streets of the historic centre. We booked a colonial standard which faced a central patio complete with fountaIn and a lovely garden. Chairs are provided to sit outside the room - perfect for spot of... More

Might not be your modern sleek five star hotel but it is full of character and very peaceful/restful in a brilliant location.the rooms open onto a beautiful courtyard all adding to the ambiance. The staff are very helpful.

Very nice colonial rooms around a shady patio with a fountain - a peaceful romantic setting in the centre of the old town and in walking distance of everything. Bathrooms are rather small, breakfast simple (standard Uruguayan breakfast), the lack of good coffee is made up by a good tea selection. Very friendly staff.

It is definitely worth staying in Colonia for more than one night which is what most people do. It's a lovely little town but the hotels seem to take advantage by overcharging for what they are delivering. As other reviewers have said, this is a charming little hotel, with a very pretty central courtyard and it has an excellent location.... More

This is a lovely historic building with a beautiful courtyard in a very good location. Some of the room facilities are a little odd like the shower control coming away from the wall when turned and the basin tap not flowing into the basin but allowing water to pour onto the floor. The breakfast was rather basic and not very... More
