We spent one night here a couple of weeks ago and had a great time. The room was lovely - beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable with good quality bedding and a nice bathroom. The rest of the hotel was lovely also, including the large communal area which had plenty of relevant guidebooks. There is even a large roof terrace that looks out to the water. The staff were very friendly and so helpful - answering all and any questions we had and taking excellent care of us.
Breakfast was a huge spread of all the things you could want - cereal, breads/meats/cheeses, yoghurts, fruit, pastries and cakes. A great way to start the day!
The hotel is really well located for the bus terminal and the port, and all the old town/beaches etc are within easy walking distance. We were really taken with Colonia itself and whiled away our brief time there wandering the old town, visiting the artisan shops and spending time on the beautiful beaches. The only thing we hadn't realised, perhaps naively, was that since at this point it's still the Rio de la Plata, rather than the sea, the water is brown, owing to all the silt. Still fine to swim in though!
Overall, we appreciated the peace and tranquility of Colonia and the hotel itself, after the buzz and noise of Buenos Aires. If we are ever back in Colonia, we would definitely choose to stay here again. Thank you!
