“Lovely courtyard hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2007

This is a lovely little courtyard hotel in the heart of old Colonia, close to restaurants, river front and the main tourist shops.
We had attractive clean rooms, each named after a famous person. My "superior" room even had a bath with jets. The hotel has a roof terrace overlooking the sea, (from which we saw stunning sunsets). Breakfast was in a room with a log fire. We had a choice of croisants, cereals, breads, cheese, fruits etc .....
The service was very quick, smiling and friendly. I would definitely go back there.

There is not a huge amount to do in Colonia itself, but the contrast between the hectic bustle of B.A. and the quietness of the town was very soothing. Travelling on the Busquebus to Colonia from B.A. and finding our hotel, was very easy. You do not even need to change your money as they will take Argentinian pesos almost everywhere.
