I really enjoyed my stay here. It's what I imagined Uruguay to be like. You kinda step back in time to the days when hotels had style and charm. I stayed in a small room because I was alone and it was very comfy indeed. I saw other rooms though and they looked fantastic ! Very confy bed and great... More

The staff are not friendly or helpful, the service is not good - the breakfast is even worse. I don't think this place is worth the money we paid for it. However, the location is great, and the building is beautiful. The beds are also amazing. Shame about the service. Sadly can't recommend this place.

It is a very nice place to spend a couple of days, to relax and enjoy the quietness, located near the iacht harbor and with a nice view over to the river. The Posada is nice decorated with old, but in a good condition, furniture and accessories: old desk and armchairs; an antique piano and fire place. The room was... More

Colonia is mostly used for people extending their tourist visa to stay in Buenos Aires. However, Colonia also has a few hidden gems. Posada del Virrey is one of them. Located in a beautiful colonial building close to the centre and the harbor, this hotel offers a tranquil and luxurious stay.

My stay at Posada Del Virrey was quite unique, the first night I got settled into the 'Don Quijote' room, which is on a second floor, following a somewhat treacherous flight of stairs. Beware, if traveling with big bags I do not recommend this room. They have larger rooms on the first floor which are all charming but lack the... More

We stayed at Posada del Virrey for two nights in October 2015. The posada is a very short cab ride to and from the ferry station and located in the heart of Colonia’s old town. The posada is a short walk to all of the sights to see in town and to great restaurants. The posada was large with some... More

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
