Posada Plaza Mayor

A charming hotel seamlessly blending heritage with modern comfort.

Originally a ranch in 1700, this now hotel was a family home back in 1860

Positioned in the heart of the enchanting and historic city of Colonia del Sacramento, Posada Plaza Mayor is not just a hotel but a living testament to the city's rich history.

Originating as a ranch in 1700 and later transforming into a family home in 1860, this meticulously converted property now proudly stands as a 15-room hotel, seamlessly blending heritage with modern comfort.

The cosy and comfortable rooms, adorned with stone walls, offer a retreat into the past while ensuring a tranquil stay. Each room is a nod to the property's historical roots, providing a unique and authentic experience complemented with modern amenities such as air conditioning and televisions

A standout feature of Posada Plaza Mayor is its charming courtyard, an oasis of tranquillity adorned with a fountain. This outdoor space invites guests to unwind, creating a serene ambiance that resonates throughout the property. Begin your day with a delightful buffet breakfast that not only nourishes the body but also provides a scenic view overlooking the Rio de la Plata. As evening falls, explore the myriad restaurants that dot the streets of Colonia, offering a variety of dining experiences for lunch and dinner.
