Nice, but a bit pricey and distant from town center
Posted Jun 3, 2010
This small hotel is a lovely property on the outskirts of Colonia about 5 km from the small and quaint town center area. At check-in, I was greeted by a very friendly English-speaking proprietor and was asked to pay in advance for my stay of two nights. The room was only modestly furnished, but clean and adequate for me. Spartan breakfast consisting of coffee, fruit juice, and an unlimited number of toasted white bread is included along with jam/butter/dulce de leche spreads. During my stay, daily maid room upkeep was not included but I am sure the very friendly, but non-English speaking staff would have been accommodative. The owner was present only infrequently which may explain the need to pay up front, but was available by phone and helpful for questions. The hotel is within walking distance of the beach but is quite distant (about 5km) from the city center. A bit pricey for such a long way to the town center, I found several much less expensive and adequately nice hotels in town where I completed my stay. Overall a lovely place and neighborhood, but pricey for the distance and unimaginative breakfast.
