    Great Stay! Excellent location, just two short blocks away from the historic town area. The room was very nice and clean, and the staff were helpful at all times. Also, yummy breakfast! I would definetely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Colonia for a couple of days.

    Perfect place to explore the Esteros. The excursions are led expertly, and the posada is the ideal home to come back to for a nap. The food was great, especially dinner.

    Lovely place in a great, walkable location. Nice, simple complementary breakfast with pastries, tea, coffee and fresh fruit. Comfortable rooms. Hot water broke while we were there, which was disappointing, but staff allowed us a late checkout to wait for the water to be fixed. Water pressure was poor, but at least it was hot!

    This is a great b&b where we had a wonderful stay! It’s located in the old center and just a short walk to the bus station and the ferry. We had a lovely room with balcony and view over the water. Room is clean, comfortable and spacious as well as the bathroom. Staff super friendly and breakfast is generous. Definitely recommended!

    I stayed this hotel before one time, and know that it's a good hotel with a good price, so I sayed there again. It's a compact and small hotel, but it makes me confortable and relaxed. it is located in front of Rio del Plata and very close to the gate of the old town, so if you are a tourist, I highly recommend this hotel, although some mosquitos may bother you.

    Good place to stay for one night in Colonia, helpful front desk. They only speak Spanish which was fine for us, but may be something to note for others. Bring Mosquito spray not a reflection on the hostel more a hopefully helpful tip!

    Overall a very great stay. Breakfast was good, but my suggestion would be to not add any sugar to the fresh fruit bowl (it’s nice when it is just fresh fruit). The location is amazing, just a couple blocks from the Old Town draw bridge entrance and the front desk gals were very friendly and accomodating, even with us arriving at midnight!

    Really nice rooms and friendly staff. It‘s only a pitty that buses stop in front of the place without shutting the engine off (which causes noise) staying for quite a while.
