We spent just one night. The place is not luxury but it's comfortable, clean and well located. Staff was very nice and friendly, heating was good, and they leave a water heater and some coffee and tea bags in your room. Breakfast was good and plenty.

We just stayed here for 1 night yestedat 13th of April. We booked into this place through El Viajero down town in Montevideo. The city colonial hostel was full so we went with this B&B for a few extra $$. This place was deffinitely worth the extra cash. Location was great, beds and linen were very clean and the shower was great, not much more a travelling couple could want, oh yes I did forget to say tat the staff was friendly and the breakfast superb!! An ideal place to kick back for a night and exlore this beautiful town of Colonial del sacremento!!

I stayed in this posada for two nights in March, 2012. I had been worried because some of the reviews on this site suggested there was a lot of noise and I am not a good sleeper. But, despite the old style window and door coverings, I found the place quiet and one in which I could sleep pretty well. It is very close to the old town, the bus station and the ferry terminal which makes it great when traveling without a car. The people who worked there were very helpful with recommending restaurants and answering other questions. The wifi was free and it worked great in the room I was in. My room, though not fancy, was really clean. Breakfast was better than average with fresh fruit available. All in all, a great place to stay if you are visiting Colonia. One suggestion about that - try to go when it is not a weekend. I got there on a Friday afternoon and that evening was lovely; the town was very quiet and it felt like the historic town it is. But on Saturday, it was overrun with people - too many to make it truly enjoyable.

Great little B&B around the corner from Old Town Colonia - stayed overnight.

Service and breakfast - friendly and simple. Coffee, Croissant and cereal.

Wifi - solid in room and lobby. Clean fresh rooms - mine faced courtyard - perfect. Would stay here again.

We stay there just one night. I t was good, not special, though.

I may say it was very well located, within an easy walk from the "cidad vieja".

Considerably better than the other place we tried in Colonia which was at the other end of average.

The room was nice and clean. The bedlinen was good. They provided a small mattress for our infant son to sleep on. The service was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a tad better than average. All in all, very happy and I would stay again but it was not in any way memorable.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 14 (double with private bath) and liked it.
