The room was not worth the money, tv was not hooked to cable, fridge did not work, noisy place. Nice courtyard

This was a very nice place to stay in Colonia del Sacramento. The accomodation was clean and simple and the people were very nice and helpful. The location was ideal, right in the heart of the old city, and is close to a couple of bars and several restaurants. I would recommend the Plaza Major to anyone going to Colonia...

Charming boutique hotel (posada) right in the middle of the historic town. Location is perfect but you should try to get a room facing the beautiful courtyard, since the rooms facing the streets are extremely noisy from the restaurant just across the street. Our room was facing the street, but that is the only con I can mention. Otherwise it...

I was really looking forward to staying at the Plaza Mayor based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, we did not have a great experience. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, yet, our room smelled like mildew and was extremely overpriced for what we got (we payed 115 USD). The courtyard was beautiful and the hotel is in...

charming, well located hotel, great breakfast with a view and delicious orange juice. the room featured stonework (perhaps newly pointed as smelt a little damp) and a high ceiling. as our room was immediately adjacent to the street it was a bit noisy as we were still jet lagged from our long haul flight.

The Posada Plaza Mayor is a small inn with a very central location in the historic section of Colonia (and note to Trip Advisor--it is referred to as Posada Plaza Mayor, not Hotel Plaza Mayor, on all signage, etc. . .) Given that it is housed in a landmark building, and is centered on a courtyard with a lovely fountain,...

We spent one night in Colonia and stayed at Posada Plaza Mayor. It is situated right on the main plaza of town - can't ask for a more central or convenient location. Several restaurants are literally within steps of the hotel; the pulperia across the cobbled road was particularly good. In addition to the central courtyard, there is a pleasant...

I visited Colonia del Sacramento with a friend and enjoyed the stay very much at the Posada Plaza Mayor. It is in the perfect location - within walking distance to most of the downtown area (restaurants, shops, parks/plazas, museums, coast). The staff was incredibly friendly, and assisted us with arranging a tour of the town/phone calls/laundry service. The rooms are...

By far the best place I've ever stayed in. The rooms are stunning, the location is breathtaking, the breakfasts are fabulous, the hotel is beautiful and the service is second to none. I booked this after it appeared in a book "1000 places to see and things to do before you die". Now I know why. Amazing!!!!!

Right in the heart of the old town. I thought it was a nice touch when the receptionist showed us to our room, the aircon was already on but now I am not so sure. There was an automatic air freshener sitting on top of the aircon that was set to go off every thirty minutes and by 4am I...
