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. The 5th bedroom is at the front of the building as the first of the four mentioned, both with balcony. Joaquin Torres García Room is one of them.
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. Up stair 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 really enjoyed staying with Rosina. The location was terrific, safe and quiet and the room large and clean. Rosina was happy to answer our multitude of questions on all things Uruguayan and gave us some helpful tips. It was nice to chat with a local. The air conditioning in our room was a life saver! As Rosina mentioned, the ac unit made a bit of humming but nothing ear plugs wouldn't fix. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful stay at Rosina's! Everything was perfect and she was a fantastic host. So easy to get on with and speaks perfect English. Her place is in a very good location in the old part of Colonia. Exactly where we wanted to be. The room is spacious and the bed is really comfortable. Also if you are lucky enough to enjoy her home cooked meals, they are divine! Simple bistro style and tasty. Exactly what we needed after a few weeks of travel. My husband and I felt very well looked after and like we were staying with a friend.

This is a gorgeous old house in Colonia between the historic district and the commercial district. Very walkable, near many restaurants and little shops. Rosina was out of town during our stay, but her lovely friend checked us in, and we had the place to ourselves for almost the entire week (it was off-season). There is a beautiful courtyard in the back of the house. The house does get very cold in the off-season months, as the ceilings are very high. Recommend to buy wood if you will be inside much. Overall very nice experience, I hope to return!

Stay at Rosina's for an authentic stay in Colonia in a nice historic building close to the old town, beach and the ferry terminal.

The house is really beautifull and the front side rooms are very spacious and nice! The bed is comfy with good matress. With 1 block away from the central plaza and 5 min walking from the old center you can already figure that the house is in the perfect spot to discover the town. Rosina is very friendly and helpfull. I also liked her little dog! In general everything is very clean with spacious rooms, kitchen and livingroom. The only thing we really didnt like was arriving there. A man who worked there was very rude as we entered the house when the door was open and while saying 'Hola, Buenos Tardes'. He said that this is not the way it goes in Uruguay, we had to ring the door even if its open and you see people inside... Then he started about someone could be so scared that he could point a gun at you.. Because of this we didnt fully enjoy our first day. Fortunally Rosina was very nice and after a while we finally felt at ease in the house..

Response from Rosina:
Thanks for your feedback Elias. I apologies for this missunderstanding. What he really wanted to tell you is what I allways tell to my guest, that is that people here in Uruguay we are not accustoms to enter to homes without ringing the bell even the front door is open, becasue is taken as violating privacy. It is different in a shop where people enter and go out without that permission. Sorry again.

Loved this place. The host Victor was absolutely lovely and made us feel at home. The room was big and comfortable with lovely high ceilings. Really close to the historical district. Would definitely recommend! Thank you Rosina & Victor :)

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…
