Quaint, peaceful and friendly, this posada offers small, comfortable rooms centrally located to the old town of Colonia. There is a tiny pool, and quiet area to sit outside. Breakfast is very small but the staff is friendly and helpful.

Posada del Angel is a lovely little boutique hotel close to the water in Colonia. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Posada del Angel. It sits at the end of a quiet cobblestone street. The Posada is 3 blocks from the main street in Colonia, about 7 blocks from the historic district, and 2 blocks from the Tourism office. The staff were all so friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is served to you at your table and includes coffee, fresh squeezed juice, croissants of all kinds, along with different jams and spreads. The pool is well maintained and the garden is very serene and relaxing. Our room was spacious and clean. Ample, safe parking was on the street in front of the hotel. We will definitely stay at Posada del Angel on our next trip to Colonia.

Room Tip: We had a Superior Room that faced the street. It had a beautiful view of the water.

This posada was perfect for us. We spoke very little Spanish and staff spoke very little English but we all still managed to communicate beautifully. The garden surrounding the pool is very peaceful. We spent two nights here and enjoyed it immensely. The room was very clean, the posada very quiet and the location was perfect. We enjoyed the evening stroll into the old town to view the sunset. The pool was a bonus and we loved coolling off after a day of exploring!

Room Tip: we had one of the cheapest rooms.. downstairs and overlooking the garden and pool. It was lovely...

This "country inn" has it all--clean rooms in a quiet location, charming angel theme decor, a nice pool, lovely breakfast room with expanded continental breakfast, plus a location just a short walk from the highly interesting historic area in Colonia. As an extra bonus the management also treated us to an hour of famous Italian arias and duets sung by a soprano and a tenor from Montevideo. They also sang 1960s era Italian popular songs like 'O Sole Mio' and 'Funiculi, Funicula' but the audience really came alive when they encouraged us to participate singing 'Cielito Lindo'. The property is very well maintained and appointed, but the bathroom is a bit cramped.

Room Tip: Rooms seem equally quiet and all are air conditioned.

Great, quiet, small posada (about 10 -12 rooms) , just outside the old city area and within walking distance from the ferries. Staff were very helpful and friendly even with our little bit of Spanish.

A nice breakfast is served in breakfast room (fresh juice!) and there is a lovely common area/lounge upstairs. Refreshing pool outside amongst a small garden area, small exercise room and a sauna.

We discovered there was a miscommunication on our reservation and they thought we were to stay only one night. When we communicated that we were staying another night – they did some switching around and first offered us (from what I could understand was the only room available right then) an unacceptable room (pull out bed). However, after not taking the first one available, if we were willing to wait, we could get an upgraded room for the standard price. Solved. They were apologetic and solved the situation to our satisfaction. Since we had to wait until late afternoon for the room (some people request late check out because of the ferry schedules), I took a swim, my husband read, and the owner or staff person offered coffee to us and also to relax in the lounge area, very sweet.

Rooms were nicely decorated, with the Angel theme, good size and comfortable beds, small bathrooms but this is a renovated older building so, to be expected. We had interior views so it was quiet and peaceful. The standard rooms are $75 US with breakfast.

Suggested: we did not see an internet station (computer for guest use), and a small refrigerator would be nice in the rooms to cool wine, and any snacks one has for the road.

A peaceful, service oriented, nicely appointed Posada for exploring this gem of a city.
