We really liked this hotel - staff are friendly, the breakfast is tasty and the location is really convenient for the ferry as well as for restaurants and attractions. The room was clean, spacious and had high ceilings, big windows and a comfortable bed. Overall it's a good choice if you want a relaxed and characterful place to stay.

It's worth knowing that they gave a discount for paying in cash and take US dollars as well as Uruguayan pesos.

We loved this wee hotel. It is in a very handy location, just a couple of minutes walk from the old town, in a quiet street and a few blocks from the ferry terminal.
The whole hotel is decorated with wee angels everywhere (painted, carved, wee statues...) and it has a very relaxing atmosphere. There is a wee garden where you can sit (they clealry stated that you should ask for towels to sit on the chairs) and a wee swimming pool. Of course, it is not a five stars hotel, but if you're looking for a cosy and welcoming place, this is the hotel for you.
The breakfast was ok, with fruits juice, coffee or tea, cakes, toasts ect...it wasn't the biggest breakfast we had during our holidays and yes, there weren't loads of fruits however, I think it was in line with the price we paid (64€ per night for a double room).
We had a room near the reception, we loved the decoration and the room was clean. Ok, it wasn't big, the hair drier was very very slow and there wasn't a fridge in the room, but the air conditioning was working, there was a safe and I think that we can live without wireless connection for a few days ;-)
The staff was also very friendly, when we left we were supposed to catch our ferry in the afternoon and they had no problem at all to store our luggage.
Again, you have to remember that you're not in Paris, you're in beautiful Uruguay. If you're looking for the comforts of a 4 stars hotel, this is not the hotel for you however, if you're looking for a quiet, nice and welcoming place to stay then, I think you should consider it. We would definitely come back.

We had read the reviews on trip advisor and chose this hotel based on them. We were disappointed by the quality, which was not worth the 105 us dollars for one night. The breakfast was poor, with no variety. The room was small noisy and dark with a small bed and no fridge . We could not sit in the garden as the chairs were dirty. The only positive was that the staff were very friendly and it was close to the old town.. We know it was a boutique hotel but it was disappointing over all. We don't know how this won a trip advisor award 2013.

Room Tip: Possibly a back rOom upstairs would avoid the road noise.

Hotel is small, couzy and staff quite nice .
I was there for one night only , therefore the problems encountered were minimized ,but if you would stay more days with a room without a fridge , neither a glass of water , an internet wi fi which does not functionned and a very basic breakfast with only one single fruit , you would be a lilltle bit nervous ..

Posada del Angel added to the overall charm of visiting Colonia del Sacramento. It is 5 blocks from the ferry terminal. Please note that as of January 2013, the location is incorrectly marked on Google maps. The posada is not located near Gran Flores, but is closer to Manuel Lobo on Washington Barbot street. It is a few short blocks to the city center with El Cali, the artisanal ice cream shop about 2 blocks away.

Service - as many of the reviews have suggested, the staff are what really makes this place special. Please note that hardly any English is spoken, but nevertheless, they were patient with us and able to answer many of our questions. There is Wi-Fi, but the signal is stronger in the common areas. We very much enjoyed the pool at the end of a long day sightseeing.

Rooms - We had Room 1 with a double bed overlooking the street. Like the common areas of the hotel, it was clean and charming with all of the angel motifs. The posada is located on a quiet street, so even though we were street-level, we were not affected by any traffic noise. Room #1, however, is located right at the entrance of the posada, so you will hear people coming and going. Since it is a small establishment anyways with only so many guests, it wasn't really an issue.

Breakfast is typical of most hotel breakfasts we've come across in the region: ham, cheese, assortment of breads like croissants, coffee, tea, and fresh orange juice.

I would recommend this posada if you're looking for something quaint and reflective of Colonia's old world charm.

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.
