We stayed for four nights in a superior (river facing) room in August 2013. The hotel is in the centre of the old district, just of the Plaza Major. The owner, who speaks excellent English, couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The room is quiet, spacious and well laid out. A good breakfast was served in the adjoining restaurant....

A small room, at ground level, which on first entering felt cold and damp. The heat pump did help to solve this problem. The bed was a basic double with only a stuffed mattress on a flat base, so not all that comfortable. Breakfast was also rather miserly, with a few small croissants and breads and a lukewarm milked coffee.... More

We stayed here for one nigh on a visit to Colonia. Based on the reviews on trip advisor we thought that it looked reasonable and proceeded with the booking. We recieved a helpful email from the owner with check in out times, options to pay in various currencies (anything but US dollars is an unfavourable rate). We arrived, walked five... More

My wife and I truly enjoyed our recent 3 night stay at the San Gabriel Guest House and Restobar. The guest house is conveniently located in the centre of the old town, within walking distance of the ferry terminal (or a short 80 to 100 peso taxi ride) and to the “downtown” business core of Colonia.. Our room, although small,... More

We stayed at the hotel San Gabriel and we did read all the reviews and wished we had listened. The hotel is near the sea and it is clean but the rooms are tiny. For the money you pay there aredefinitely better deals out there. We kept tripping over the furniture. The patio and breakfast area are additions to the... More

Been travelling 3 months with my daughter on about $65 per person per day so could be considered an upper "budget" type traveler. Found Uruguay quite expensive compared to Peru and Bolivia and even Argentina. This small inn was cheaper than two other budget priced lodgings listed in guide book but offered more charm and peace and was better located.... More

Myself and a friend stayed here 2 nights and ended up in a room downstairs that contained a bunk bed and a single bed. The room was not particularly clean and the pillows very old and manky. We did happen to see into another room ( which was occupied by someone else ) which looked a lot better, but based... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. It's backing the water front and nearby some of the best restaurants. The owner is very helpful and flexible. We had the upper room and it was great. Nice decoration and clean rooms. Wish we can stay for longer. Good price as well

This small hotel is located near the Plaza Mayor hotel, in a quiet section of the old historic district. My friend stayed in room one which was on the main floor. It had a window to the street, that you could shutter, and beautiful white stonework behind the bed. It's not big , but a very pleasant room, for I... More
