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

We spent one night here a couple of weeks ago and had a great time. The room was lovely - beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable with good quality bedding and a nice bathroom. The rest of the hotel was lovely also, including the large communal area which had plenty of relevant guidebooks. There is even a large roof terrace that... More

Charming posada with original architectural details intact. Elegant place with large and clean rooms. They have a roof terrace ideal to see the sunset. Good location, only five minutes walking to the Barrio Historico. Plenty of good restaurants in both directions. We felt very safe walking around here at night. Staff is friendly and willing to help with anything. Breakfast... More

We spent two nights at this great little hotel. Just a couple of blocks from the bus station, Hotel Posada del Virrey should be your first stop in Colonia. Clean, elegant rooms plus a delicious breakfast and all within easy walking distance to the old city makes this an ideal place for a stay. Highly recommended.

Lovely colonial and rustic feel, very different from BA where we were staying. Great lunch in the garden with lovely cold beers. Service was slow and somewhat perfunctory, but th overll experience was fun.

We spent one night at Posada del Virray. Nicely located in the historic district yet away from posada ghetto. It's a charming posada with original architectural details intact. We chose the double deluxe room for its extra space and charm based on photos. However this room we had (named the "Rey Fernando" room) is located at the front street-level of... More

This cute little Spanish style hotel is just off the main street of Colonia. The hotel is nicely decorated with Spanish artifacts. Wifi is available in the large comfy foyer but it was not working during our one night stay. Our room was reasonably large with a comfortable double bed and a clean ensuite. Thankfully it had a quiet airconditioning... More

Stayed at this location during a Monday trip from BsAs to Colonia. As it was low season, all hotels were offering deals- nobody was in town. The whole city smelled of firewood, even thought he temperature was in line with that one would find during a Northern California winter, but it seemed like the whole city was hunkered down until...
