While I enjoyed staying at Villa Colonial, I do not think it is the best value-for-money option. The staff was friendly, rooms were acceptably clean, but everything was very basic. Breakfast was minimal. All of this would be fine for a lesser price.
When we arrived, the hotel did not have any record of our booking from this site but they still gave us the room we had requested as they had one available. The room was comfortable, had good a/c, clean bathroom and room. They asked each day if we
wanted it serviced which was good. They offered to book tours for us if we wanted. On the day we left they looked after our luggage for free which was great. One point to note is that the people I dealt with didn't speak English but thankfully I have basic Spanish. However on check out they tried to get me to pay again even though Id already paid with this site. The owner was quite pushy in this regard but I had given her my booking sheet and told her to sort it out directly with this website. They didn't seek payment when we came back to collect our bags so I assume it was worked out in the meantime but it caused a bit of unnecessary stress on our last day there. Location wise it is about 10mins from the main old city entrance along a busy street with the main hostels on it but the street the hotel itself is on is very dark and menacing looking. It is next door to a derelict building. We didn't have problems but I would not liked to have been on my own! Overall I would stay again if I had to so long as there were no problems with booking!
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Go to Café Del Mar at sunset inside the city walls. Its about a 20min walk from the hotel. Great cocktails with fab views!
