The hotel is a grand old building which has a good feel to it, but it is looking tired in places. The entrance is lovely with lots of space to relax. The open log fire in the breakfast room was a welcome sight with it being so cold during our stay. Breakfast was standard continental and tables were well presented.... More

It is really a nice option to stay If you want to be in old town. Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. Clean and big room. The building is a colonial house, very well preserved. Some rooms has an original wall of stone, as well as the bathroom. Because of that we have a feeling not so good in the bathroom.... More

This is an interesting property in a convenient location, but it needs upkeep and improvements. There were cobwebs covering the doors and many areas needed a thorough cleaning or touch up paint. When we returned from dinner one night, we found all the room keys (which you are requested to leave at the posada when you go out) spread out... More

We only stayed for one night, which was long enough to explore the town. We had a room upstairs, from which you could the harbour. it was clean and functional, with some nice period furniture. The shower was a great size. Breakfast was a fairly standard buffet, in a nice little space just off the central lobby. the staff were... More

Nice building with a lot of charm. The room was a good size and vwry clean. The bed was fine a little on the soft side and the shower was good. The breakfast was pretty standard. Pretty good over all.

The hotel building itself is beautiful and the lobby space is great. The room was simple and rustic, perfectly functional. It was clean and the bed was super comfortable. Couples may want to be warned about a lack of privacy as I didn't get the impression that our door was particularly soundproof! Breakfast was good and self service buffet style... More

We really enjoyed our short stay in this classic environment of an old grande house. Super high ceilings, old tile work and I guess what I think Uruagury would be like. Staff was warm and friendly...no English spoken, but we could get by. The room had a big comfortable bed, the bath is pretty basic but totally clean and functional.... More

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
