This hotel is located in a mostly residencial area within walking distance of the port. Like many of Colonia's streets, it was lined with sycamore trees. Very shady and appealing. There is little traffic during the day and much less at night. The main street, Av General Flores is a couple of blocks away and old town a few blocks more.
The interior is very nice with plenty of wood and tile. There's an interesting patio with fountain and flowers. Nice pool area. English speaking management.
Our room had cable TV, AC, private bath and was good sized and clean. Lots of hot water. It had an overhead fan. Breakfast included as usual.
Our room was regularly $45USD but we got it for $35 since it was a weekday. No competition from weekend crowds from Buenos Aires. In November it was not very busy (just as we had planned it!).
The restaurant was OK, but expensive even by Uruguayan standards.
Unique Quality: This is a beautifully appointed little hotel. It was very quiet, which after Buenos Aires, I really appreciated.
My only complaint came from some of the comments made by the lady who owns the place. She basically complained about all the tourists in her town and the fact that there were so many English speakers wandering around. Maybe it was a language problem, but she came across as being pretty bigoted about those who provided her with an income. Very weird, because most of the time she seemed to be a very nice person. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but . . . .At any rate, it wouldn't keep me from staying there again!
Directions: From the port, go left on Manuel Lobo for about 4-5 blocks to Av Suarez.
