I am staying in the don Quixote room - no 32. No working TV. No one answers the phone at reception. Insects and a mouse in my room. Not worth the money at all. For £20 more the Radisson has an offer on. I've been travelling around South America for 4 months and this is the first review I've written... More

Incredible location, just a step away from the marina for the best sunsets, and just a few blocks from the city center. The old colonial feel to the hotel fits right in with the atmosphere of Colonia. The personnel was extra accommodating, made sure we had a great stay! The room was very comfortable, great breakfast as well. Definitely recommend... More

Beautiful old building with big spacious rooms. Unfortunately when we stayed there, there was no hot water in the entire town. However I would go back there. The staff were friendly and the breakfast in the morning was very nice. The only criticism is that the staff could have told us about the water

Good location, with ups and downs. The location is the best: right in the heart of the old city, a few steps from the old port, where you can see a wonderful sunset. Rooms are big (it's an old colonial house) and breakfast is good. The down thing here (and I think it's a important one) is the noise at... More

With a great location, close the the river and the dock. We stayed at the Don Quixote room, have a small balcony with a nice view of the neighborhood, the river and all the yachts. The personal was very kind and helpful, definitely recommended at 100% . Good breakfast and WiFi connection in all the hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for one night during a side trip from Buenos Aires. The hotel is about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the ferry dock, easy to find and located in the historic part of town. The building dates back from when it was the viceroy's residence, and has a nice feel to it, with... More

We spent a great night in this charming Posada. The room downstairs had an extra large bed that we really appreciated. Lots of space, nice terrace on the roof to have a drink at sunset. Good breakfast, we would love to come back there to spend another night in this very nice hotel.

An amazing hotel in a building that is centuries old. It feels like stepping back into history. Simple, elegant & so relaxing after being in crazy Buenos Aires. Service was also very good & the breakfast was very nice. I would definitely recommend this place, especially at the price.

The city with its historical places , its bars and views, already leads us to a more intimate moment . A well placed hotel with traditional architecture, befitting the city mood, large rooms, colonial decoration. Surely one of the best Companion to a nice weekend.
