10/10 Exceptional

El desayuno muy completo. Las instalaciones muy lindas, el personal muy amable. Lo único que encontramos que no nos gustó fueron cucarachas en los baños de la piscina, lo menciono únicamente porque fueron varias las veces y no la misma cucaracha. 😂

Ótimo hotel. Bem localizado.
O hotel é ótimo. Bem localizado. Limpo e com funcionários atenciosos. Só não vale 5 estrelas porque não tem estacionamento gratuito conforme informado no anúncio e consequentemente na pesquisa. Não chega a ser um grande problema já que há vagas na rua em frente e a cidade é bem segura. Mas ainda assim não corresponde ao anúncio.

Nice hotel in the center of Colonia on the main street. The hotel is located near the old city, so you can walk to it.

Visiting Colonia
We spent 2 nights in Colonia and had reserved at Hotel Spa Artemisa ahead of time hoping we’d stay more but we wouldn’t have stayed any longer. There was a torrential rainfall as we arrived at Colonia and the hotel, we had no room electricity. There were quite a few leaks from the rain in corridors, they didn’t seem concerned, didn’t mop up or signalled them even though floors were slippery. There was a short circuit in adjoining room, so they offered us another room, after I complained about the no electricity. No soaps or any toiletries in the room. Very dark with old furniture, not antiques, just old. They obviously don’t clean under beds, found stuff under both. Bathrooms are tiny and water splashes out of the shower, but that seems fairly common here. Bed was king size and nice, not enough pillows though, 4 thin ones only. Sleeping was comfortable but the AC/heater was old and hard to use with remote. What made sleeping difficult was the constant noise outside on the Main Street, motorcycles were riding noisily until 2 am (couldn’t sleep!) and it was a Friday in the off-season (autumn) so I’d hate to think what it must be like in nice summer weather. Breakfast was mediocre at best, processed cheese, not much variety, no fruit salad, just fruits and really bad tasting coffee! The best part was the large warm water pool in the basement, strange but it works, it also has a small hot tub area in the pull but 3 or 4 of the jets didn’t work. The hotel is just too run down.

Convenient Location
The location is centrally located to the sites in Colonia. The rooms are small and require upkeep and updating. The carpeted floor was dirty and your bes to wear flip flops.

6/10 Good

The hotel is located in a historical building in the "old city". It is spacious, but a bit rundown with very small rooms. An effort was made to paint the room, but it was done very sloppily. The bathroom was dated and no complimentary soap or shampoo was offered. Breakfast was decent.
