Colonial charme in the center of town Aug 01, 2011
Hotel Colonial is a charming small scaled colonial style hotel in the very center of Potosi, it is just around the corner from the Plaza 6 de Agosto so all attractions are in walking distance.
The rooms are spread over 2 storeys around 2 very charming courtyards. We got a room on the 2nd floor at the very back of the premises and we had beautiful views on the spires of the nearby churches.
Our room was a very spacious corner room with 2 queen size beds, a sitting area, tv and mini bar. Moreover there was also well functioning heating!
The bathroom was equally spacious with a bath tub, heating and really hot water too! (I mention this because in some hotels on this trip we did not get more than lukewarm)
There is a peña around the corner of the hotel and it did get noisy at night ; however the music stopped at a rather decent hour still. Apart from that, it was nice and quiet.
There's free wifi in the rooms and all over the hotel.. including the patios.
Breakfast is included in the room rate and served in a tiny room upstairs, that tends to get very crowded. It's a continental breakfast but nevertheless quite extensive. A friendly lady gives you the choice between several freshly squeezed juices; there are rolls, bread, a piece of cake or sweet and plenty of jam. For a small fee (3 Bolivianos)it is possible to order fried or scrambled eggs.
Mind however that service is very slow, especially when the entire breakfast rooms is filled up.
There's a computer with internet connetion and printer in the breakfast room and downstairs near the reception there is purified water for brushing teeth or filling up your water bottle.

Stayed here in May 2008. Helpful staff, wifi in room, automatic heating at night time, unless you turn it off. Small bedroom for one person, but adequate and stayed warm. Ensuite. Good value for USD38 pn. Would stay there again.
