Guest access

Our place is an old building refurbished from the beginning of last Century with 5 bedrooms, 4 of them set one beside the other from the front of the building towards the end. Eduardo Galeno Room in one of the rooms of the middle with door/windows to the central hall. The 5th bedroom is at the front of the building as the first of the four mentioned, both with balcony. It has a big luminous hall in the center of the building where we offer the breakfast and ideal for several activities. It also has a tv room. At the back of the building and inside you will find the modern part of the building, the kitchen. The kitchen is big enough to coordinate a cooking activity for all the guests. You will also find 2 complete bathrooms. Finally the backyard, with the BBQ, the 3rd complete bathroom and the laundry. Upstair is the room of the hosts.

Interaction with guests

My husband and I, we live upstairs with our cute and little dog, you will have total independence if you want, not only because the rooms and common areas are big enough but also because we facilitate the keys to go in and out whenever you want.
Sometimes we are not at home because we travel for working reasons, so you will experience our home alone with local assistance of a friend and with our online support.

Other things to note

I have some bikes to lend you for a ride during your stay.

We stayed with four people and it was a nice stay. The fotos don't fited the rooms we saw,but it was very nice anyway. It is very clean and good equipped. Make sure to communicate exactly which rooms you want, if having preferences. The house is in a nice neighbourhood and very central. But the house is old and everything is a bit humid/wet, which you should know. The washing machine did not work and was anyway called "extraservice" so I had to wash across the street,which was a bit annoying because I thought I could do it there. Overall a nice house to stay for 1/2 days if you need a break from crowded hostels :)

While Rosina the owner is very responsive and accommodating (she responded to messages very quickly and was able to accommodate us although we booked our room only a few hours in advance), her mother (which was the person who oversaw our stay because Rosina was out of town) was a bit rude. Unlike most hostels, which allow you to continue using the facilities after your checkout, her mom was clearly reluctant to let us stay past the checkout time (i.e. We could not shower or use the kitchen past checkout). Everything else about the hostel/Airbnb was great however. It is a 10 minute walk away from loads of restaurants/the historical center, and around the block from a great night club.

Response from Rosina:
Thanks Daniela for your review. I apologies for the inconvinience of the check out time, unfortantely for you my home it is not like a hostel as you have mentioned. I have rules to use my kitchen that are published on the site and you should agree with before confirming the booking. b regards

Great stay in a really central location. Colonia is so easy to walk around and a much welcome break from the city life in Buenos Aires! Rosina was really helpful and welcoming. Her house is lovely and clean. We also had dinner one night which was amazing!

Rosina was lovely as was her home, in the beautiful and historic Colonia, it was our first experience of Uruguay. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms were large, clean and had properly made beds. Also a slight rarity for AirBnB - Breakfast was included. And as a further positive, Rosina was very kind to introduce us to other guests.

La casa esta muy bien ubicada y el servicio que se presta de acuerdo a lo publicado por su propietaria. La casa es hermosa.

Es lamentable que una persona que odia recibir gente en su casa haga de eso su actividad comercial. Más allá del mal trato gratuito los servicios no son los que la página promete, las toallas tenes que perdir por favor que te las preste cuando la página dice que es parte del servicio. Champú y acondicionador nunca nos los ofrecieron. El papel higiénico no existe y tanto la puerta principal como la del cuarto tienen sus cerraduras rotas. Estadía olvidable.

I grew up in Colonia so I am a witness of the modern part transformation and how it coexists with the Barrio Histórico that is a world heritage. I love to host people at my home. I feel it is a family heritage because my father used to host sailors from around the world that used to visit Colonia in their sailboats. I love to travel so whenever I can I try to take advantage.
I also love cooking, playing piano, practicing sports like speed roller skating as well as looking for old things in special places.
I am a Chemical Engineering and International Chef, so I am planning to explore the Home Bistro concept with a suitable timetable to combine lodging, meal and good atmosphere.
