The hotel is some kind of old fashion posada with nice terrace but the service is really poor... to say the least. When we arrived we couldn't get the room before 3.00 PM. We finally got it but with no water. This was sorted out in 1 hour, but there was no warm water... the reception gave us the impression...

Hotel is in a nice zone, close to old town and most restaurants. Colonia is a beatiful town with so many things to see. It was a Portuguese and Spanish settlement so it provides a rare opportunity to understand that presence in South America. And Posada del Virrey makes it easy to tour around the town. Two of the largest...

This hotel is quite nice. We enjoyed our one night stay. Paid $65 for one night. Colonia is a very nice place to visit. Only issue was that nobody spoke English...not a word. A little Spanish is a necessity in this part of the world!

We stayed here for one night, and while I agree with the other reviews that this place is quaint, friendly, clean etc. I must say that we had a rather strange experience here. After trying some other hotels that had no vacancies, we walked in here and the lady at the desk first showed us a room that was almost...

we stayed one night here and were quite satisfied. The room was comfortable, the AC worked, breakfast was very good with cereals, ham, chees, pastries and the ubiquitous dulce de leche. 5 minute stroll, if that, to the main plaza. Front desk people were very gracious and helpful. Colonia is a charming town which could easily be seen in 2...

We stayed a night at the Posada del Virrey. The hotel's location is right in the tourist zone. It was easy to walk to and from the ferries (from Buenos Aires) to the hotel. The staff had limited English skills, but we we had no problem communicating with them. They are professional. The room was clean and spacious. The common...

I stayed at the hotel with my girlfriend for a couple of days. The building in itself is quite a spectacle - the house is very well maintained, and deserves to be seen. Breakfast was not spectacular, but adequate. Staff is really friendly and accomodating, though foreigners should keep in mind their English speaking skills are pretty basic. We extended...

Three nights at Posada del Virrey did not exhaust its many charms. Excellent service staff, immediate response to every inquiry. Clean, antique filled rooms were a delight. Excellent breakfast, well beyond the standard fare, included some local delicacies. Central location made short walks a delight, whether off to the pier a block away, to good restaurants nearby or to several...

While on a trip to Buenos Aires my husband and I decided to take a side trip over to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay and stay at the Hotel Posada del Virrey. Located on a side street near the water this hotel takes you back in time. Upon arrival the first thing you notice is its tall handcarved front doors. Once...

This is a lovely little courtyard hotel in the heart of old Colonia, close to restaurants, river front and the main tourist shops. We had attractive clean rooms, each named after a famous person. My "superior" room even had a bath with jets. The hotel has a roof terrace overlooking the sea, (from which we saw stunning sunsets). Breakfast was...
