Only stayed one night but we were fairly pleased with this hotel. Eco friendly and modern. However, we could hear our neighbours so clearly through the door meant for adjoining rooms, we could even hear them spraying hairspray! If you are a light sleeper, maybe ask for a room without a door.
Firstly, Colonia is a wonderful little town. Not a lot going on, but it's very pretty, and just made for early evening strolls, making up for the fact that you didn't take many photos while in BA, sitting on the city walls watching the sunset over the Rio and then turning in for big dinner somewhere. This would make an ideal one or two night stay after a busy holiday in Buenos Aires.
The hotel is ideally situated: it's not on the main square but is only 15m away (Colonia is not a large town!). It's clean and very pretty. Our room was slightly on the smaller side, and also didn't feel the most private - we could overhear people coming in and out of reception. But the bed was enormous and extremely comfortable.
We ate in the restaurant both for an evening meal and for breakfast. Both were great. The place is open all day, which is fairly advantageous as we are still not used to the South American practice of eating at 10pm or later!
Overall, we wished we'd booked a flexible ferry back to Argentina, as we really wanted to stay a second night!
