This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. Both times were the last night of a business trip. The old section of town is a great place to slow down after a fast passed trip. The hotel is not large and is very quite. The rooms have high ceilings and are just a little small. But there...

Stayed the one night, should have stayed two. Not because of the hotel, but because Colonia was such a charming place and the hotel is perfectly located. The hotel is a two hundred year old building restored and generally well maintained. However it is still an old building, so if you want romanticism, it is there in spades, if you...

The Posada plaza major is at the centre of the colonial town of Colonia del Sacremento and has a charming old courtyard with a fountain. However unless you book one of the courtyard rooms the veranda rooms are very small for $125US. So small in fact that it was difficult to find room to park our cases. Check out the...

I was received by a charmless staff but a pretty fountain in the courtyard lifted my spirits upon arrival. The room was unremarkable but clean. Being in the middle of old town on a weekend meant music playing until late in the neighborhood although the hotel guests were quiet. I had hoped to open the french doors onto the courtyard...

This Posada is simply the most romantic place in Colonia del Sacramento. The rooms are beautiful and the bathrooms superb. The breakfast room has the most beautiful view from the Rio da Plata, and all the good restaurants are within walking distance. The central garden is soooo awesome that many tourists just get inside believing this a museum they can't...

The staff, Bruno, at the reception desk was very professional and gave us a warm welcome, telling the story of this old XVIII portuguese house. The back yard looking to the beautiful sunset on the River Plate is so beautiful. Room, colonial style, is simple, clean, also the bathroom. Our's was located looking the patio with an incredible fountain, and...

This hotel is very well located and it is very comfortable. I would personally add more comfort. Don't get me wrong. I am not looking for a luxury hotel, but the place deserves more quality details. I was in room 17, which it seems it used to be a warehouse in the old times, and this is why the entrance...

The historic part of town is beautiful and this hotel has the perfect location and with a little upgrading could be lovely.We travelled around South America 34 years ago and this was the standard one expected then not in 2015. Our room on the courtyard was dark and dingy. The bed linen was poor and the single hard synthetic pillow...

Charming hotel in a perfect location and uber clean. We might have caught this place on an off day, but there were a few issues. Our first room had non functioning bathroom lights so we had to move to another room. That one had a shower with hot water running out after just a couple minutes. The staff was not...

The Posada Plaza Mayor is in a terrific location in the old part of Colonia del Sacramento. The building itself is a historic building, and our room was charming -- stone walls, high ceiling, etc. -- but was very comfortable. Our room opened up onto a courtyard which contained a 19th century fountain. The breakfast was wonderful and served in...
