4/10 Fair

Gorgeous from the outside, and empty from within. The check in reception was frankly terrifying - zero warm welcome or comfort, simply demanding a passport and what we wanted. Well, I'd like to check into the room I booked. After filling out the forms, she literally threw the key at us and said that there was a pool and breakfast available - no showing us where any of this was. Went to our room to discover that it was actually OUTSIDE the hotel, after the front entrance, on the street. The room itself was fabulous, that I recommend. Only if you hate sleep. Cars, motorcycles, and wild dogs mean that you will be kept up all night. Would have loved to find the pool. Would have loved to have breakfast. Would have loved to talk to someone who cared enough to tell me about the history of this beautiful place. This is not the place they advertise, and it's not worth the price if you want a good night's sleep.

Being in the historic district is the way to see and experience Colonia. Some amenities could have been better (e.g. wi-fi, bathroom fixtures). Staff was great. Breakfast was awesome.

Beautiful hotel with spacious rooms spotless baths. We felt like we went back in time. Breakfast was well presented and delicious. Wi-Fi is only in the lobby area. Rooms are quiet from the street; however you could hear the TV sets and talking from other guests.
