Did the job perfectly to break up the journey to Montevideo from BA with 2 kids. The family room, pool and breakfast were great and the staff were particularly friendly and welcoming. It wasn't the cheapest but the balance of money and quality worked for us as a travelling family.

Decent enough hotel and a good value for Colonia. Room was big enough as was the bathroom. Just a little out of date for my taste. Pretty good breakfast buffet in the morning. Free wifi worked well also.

This place could be good as it's in a great location, only a few mins from the old town and 7 min walk from the boat terminal, it has a pool and been modernised in parts, it offers a good enough breakfast for this type of hotel, rooms were clean and comfortable, though small. But it's only ok as it's... More

The best thing about this Hotel is the location in the main street, a few minutes walk to the old town and a number of eating/drinking options. Otherwise it's a fairly standard 3* Hotel that offers the basics but not much more. Our double room was comfortable enough with a (huge) king size bed, TV, air con and fridge. The... More

Stayed here with family. Location is excellent! Staff was great! Breakfast included was good!! Walking distance to the ferry!! We made the mistake to pay for a taxi and realized we threw $$ down the toilet there, they truly overcharge you. Need some love though (painting at least).

We stayed at the Royal hotel with my family in a quadruple room. The Hotel was OK. Breakfast was really good for the price of the hotel. Toasts, croissants, jam, juice, yogurt, ham & cheese. The room was very small. It has a swimming pool. The location is great. 2 blocks away from the Old part of the city.

This place is terrible and overpriced. We stayed here as it was the only place that had a room available during an Argentinian holiday. I would have slept better on the ferry! The room was small, the bathroom looked as if there was construction going on in there, and to top it off there was no hot water and the... More

In the heart of Colonia, with its old Spanish and Portuguese architecture sits the Royal Hotel, a badly designed ´70s eyesore that has little charm and little comfort. I stayed here only because reservas.net messed up my booking with a nicer and cheaper hotel. The rooms are badly soundproofed, the TV miniscule, with terrible picture quality. The airconditioning was usless,... More

Staff are pleasant but this is a basic hotel with drab rooms & although they have a website, there is no internet.
