Good hotel, a bit old in it's structure, but has great views on the top floors. Location is very good as you can reach Colonia downtown walking a few minutes. Service is very good and breakfast is very nice.

The Hotel El Mirador was, at one time, the only quality hotel in Colonia. I actually lived here for a few months many years ago. Since then some big chain hotels have been built in the area but El Mirador is still one of the top spots to go. The food is second to none; a true culinary treat. The... More

The hotel is good on average, the building seems to be a bit old, but the view is amazing and it is well conserved and maintained. I think this is a good 3 stars, but not 4. The hotel personnel is kind, and as Colonia is a small city you can know in detail in two days, the hotel is... More

We ended up staying here, not by choice, but by accident. We found the rooms to be quaint, and bohemian. The staff and management and the cafe was fantastic and a great deal. We could not eat that much, Gotta stay there!!

Stayed one night. Close to port. Clean and comfortable. Service was polite. Wireless is free and works in rooms but strength depends on location--it worked if I sat near the door. Restaurant buffet has a wide selection of choices including a great salad bar for dinner. Breakfast is free and is also plentiful. Many pieces of the equipment in fitness... More

We arrived by car, cars are not very common in Colonia, there is no traffic and you pretty much park anywhere. The reception was not overwhelming, it took them a couple of minutes to find our pre-arranged rate, at the end we get our room keys. The rooms are clean, they are small, at least the ones behind the reception,... More
