Although this is not a sleek and modern hotel, it is something much better. The owners have paid attention to every detail...the common areas are filled with art and homey furniture. The long family style dining table is lovely and the tables in the garden provide a secondary searing option. We stayed in the bungalow off the garden. It was... More

All of the charms found in the old city of Colonia have been beautifully placed into this wonderful boutique hotel! Fred, the owner, is welcoming and accommodating and allowed us to push our stay back one day when the ferry from Buenos Aires was cancelled last minute. The building is unique and beautiful, the walls are covered in wonderful art,... More

From the warm and welcoming check-in to the final check-out after leaving luggage during my final day exploring Colonia, Fred provided outstanding service. Nicely apportioned large suite room, great library and terrace for breakfast or dinner... lots of art on the walls and in the books throughout the property... a welcome oasis.

My Partner and I only stayed 2 nights and I wish it could have been longer. Fred our host was wonderful and very helpful. We stayed in the bungalow and it had everything we needed. The location was also close to both the colonial town and modern port.

We stayed in the bungalow a week ago and instantly fell in love with the room, the gardens and the ambience. The owner, Fred, is also an artist and it shows in every detail of the rooms and the courtyard outside. His paintings are on display and are fabulous. It seems there was something to discover on every shelf and... More

Nice, quiet and cheerful place. We loved the decoration of the room, the staff friendliness and the location (barrio historico nearby). Great breakfast. We appreciate the possibility to have lunch or merienda.

This was our first stop n Uruguay and what a great way to begin! A small hotel filled with artwork done by the accommodating owner (Fred), the rooms are unique and very welcoming.
