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.

The hotel is an old colonial house that was used by the city or area administrator (source: google, hehe) Rooms are spacious with an around 4 meter ceiling. Decoration preserves the original style but enough updated to feel comfortably actual. I used to live in a old monastery in Bahia, so I'm kind of well adapted to those places, but... More

The best: The inn is located at a great location downtown the historic Colonia, thus making it easy to go everywhere on foot. Breakfast is excellent, full of pastries and varied fruits, jams, yogurts and juices. There was no whole milk (my favorite), though. We got a room downstairs, which made it easier for us to carry the bags, since... More

This B&B only has one good thing going for it and that is the rooftop. After roaming around the quaint town of Colonia we decided to buy a few beers rather than going to a bar and took them to the rooftop which ended up being more enjoyable and a hell of a lot cheaper. From there we watched the... More

In this place you can really feel the spirit of the colonial times, the building is very well preserved, clean and with a very nice communal area with helpful guidebooks. The Terrace is amazing with a very nice view! Breakfast was very good and it is a very nice place to stay if you are coming for example from Buenos... More
