“Charming place”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

We loved this small charming hotel, only a few blocks from the main centre. The staff were incredibly nice and helpful.

The room we had was an inside room so a bit dark, but well decorated and clean. The bathroom was a little dated but clean. The pool was nice to relax by at the end of the day.

Breakfast was average, just bread, cheese, ham, cake, jam, juice and coffee. Could have been a bit more exciting, but all served with great charm.

Would recommend.

A really lovely little hotel.

I stayed alone for one night. The staff were incredibly warm towards me, nothing was too much trouble and it felt very genuine.

Bedroom was decorated with real thought. Throughout the posada there there is a very personal touch - all along the angel theme.

Breakfast was basic but nice and plentiful.

I realised in hindsight that I was on the wrong timezone still and didn't check out of my room at the correct time. The staff were very patient and polite about it.

I spent my second day there killing time by their pool waiting for my ferry. Very nice gardens and pool area and the staff were once again accommodating, offering me the gym area for a shower after and bringing me towels.

I can't recommend here highly enough. Great value and such a warm welcome.

Visiting Colonia became an even better experience when we stayed at this lovely posada. We took the superior room with street view. Everything down to the bed and soap is themed with angels. But the people really made the difference, we got a lot of help from the staff when we needed it. The sauna is very relaxing, they turned the gym room in a private spa for us. The location is superb, right between the bus/boat terminal and the historic center.

This place is pleasant enough, decorated in blue, lemon and white with wall frescoes depicting slightly awkward looking angels. The idea is great and it is nearly carried off but attention to detail is needed. The shower rail in our room was loose and the bathrooms use 60 litre electric storage hot water services (hung from the ceiling in the bathroom). If there are two people and the first person lingers too long, then the second gets a warm shower at best. In order to sustain the mooted, faded colour scheme (which is nice), they use bare doonas (duvets) on the beds - ie with no cover. The doona we had was a tad shabby and we wondered why they did not use a removable cover for each guest. Breakfast is minimal, lacking any fruit at all other than oranges. Wifi works well, even outside around the small swimming pool. The salon area upstairs is quite nice and we used it a bit. Our room was effectively off the foyer and was noisy when people moved through - ask for an upstairs room. Overall, this is a nice little place which could be better with some TLC. it is just outside the old town which it fine and is keenly priced accordingly. Colonia is so small that there is nt a lot to be gained by staying in the old town per se.

We spent one night in the posada and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everyone in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The location cannot be beat for easy access (2 blocks) to the old historical part of the city, which was our main interest. Plenty of good places to eat within easy walking distance. Only 1/2 block from the Rio de la Plata. I would stay here again any time I find myself in Colonia.

I was only in colonia for one night, but this was absolutely the right place to stay. It was clean, comfortable, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were happy to recommend places to eat, visit, and shop. It was also very well located.
If you are looking for all of the luxuries of a large hotel chain, you won't find them here, but if you are looking for a nice home away from home, I definately recommend posada del angel.

The staff, like everyone in Colonia, was very friendly and helpful, despite the language barrier. The location was good, near the port and the old city.
The issue that made me lower the rating is value for money. Even taking into account the 10% discount for paying cash, we saw several places for similar prices with larger and better furnished rooms, making the Posada del Angel look overpriced.
