Colonia and Carmelo: Charco

Visit Us

Charco

This little boutique style hotel brings warmth and character to the fringes of Colonia’s historic quarter, squatting on the banks of the River Plate with huge views over the silvery estuary.

The colonial era building accommodates just seven 'white' guest rooms and a 'rancho'  (rustic stone building with accommodation for four and its own kitchen).

All the guest rooms are certainly easy on the eye with contemporary, Scandinavian-minimalist design featuring lots of luminous white in the furnishings and fabrics juxtaposed with darker rustic stone and wood work. As with most converted colonial buildings, the layout and size of each guest room varies and while most face the cobbled streets of old Colonia, the balcony suite has a river view.

There is an attractive breakfast area, al fresco bar and a bistro restaurant which is open to the public, as well as a small riverside garden where you can enjoy the watery vistas.

What our experts say

This hotel has a wonderful rustic charm and when you combine this with modern comfort and a well regarded restaurant, it merits its place as number one on review websites.
