“Don Antonio - Colonial Colonia at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

After a pretty traumatic experience at Posada el Capullo around the corner, where smelly noisy rooms drove me to cancel my booking, we arrived at Posada Don Antonio in very low spirits.
The lovely Sabrina greeted us with a smile and showed us to a lovely room on the top floor of the new building.
Everything about Don Antonio says Colonia, the location is perfect, the building beautiful and the little swimming pool and courtyard a welcome oasis in the south american summer.
Continental breakfast is very good with plenty of choices and served until quite late which is very nice.
Will definitely be coming back to Don Antonio.

Beautiful posada on a very good location in Colonia. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, very nice pool area, excelent breakfast.The only negative point at the posada is that there is no safety box in the room and the reception will not take your valuables.

Positive: excellent location close to the historic centre, good breakfast, friendly staff, romantic setting, swimming pool. Negative: simple room with lack of ventilation and privacy, no elevator. Rooms are built colonial-style around the courtyard, with a view at the swimming pool, and lovely garden. Disadvantage of this construction is that rooms only ventilate towards the walkways around the courtyard. So there is no cross-ventilation, and when you open the window or door, people walking past can look into the room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the very back of the building, on the opposite side of the entrance. It's a bi...

We thought we'd have to slum it for our 2 days in CdS – until a killer deal popped up.
What a shame we couldn't stay longer, but a great place to chill.
The room was great - very traditional; breakfast a delight; the pool a little cold and just a short walk to the harbour.
For a meal, try Candela next door to Mercosur – which is usually crowded with tour groups from MvD or BA.
To watch a truly magnificent sunset, have a meal/drink at La Bodeguita (Comercio 167) out on the terrace.

If you want to esacpe book into this hotel. Located in central Colonia this coudl not be a better location. The rooms are no sumptious but more than adequate. The setting is tranquil and superb. All rooms face inward onto the courtyard/pool. The staff is extemely friendly and very accomodating. If you want to escape this is the place to come to!

First things first: if you´re going to stay in Colonia, stay near the old part of town (where all the posadas are). That way you can walk to and from anywhere. I´d also recommend renting a scooter or a golf cart for your stay (there´s several companies that provide the service on the town´s main street), so you can head out to the beaches for an afternoon without having to bail a cab.

Now on to Don Antonio: it´s, by far, the nicest posada in town. It´s only 1 block away from the old part of town and it´s absolutely charming. The service is wonderful, it has a nice pool (which is important during the hot summer months....you´ll feel like taking a break from the sightseeing to take a dip mid-afternoon, and with the posada so close by, you can!), free WIFI throughout the property, A/C and ceiling fans in every room, and the architecture is beautiful.

I´d recommend the "superior" rooms, which are a tad more expensive than the standards, but face the indoor patio where the pool is.

I´ll be back. It was absolutely worth it.

Room Tip: The junior suite has a jacuzzi in it!
