Reviewed 28 February 2014

This Hotel is very, very old, the carpet in the room is something horrible, old and dirty. I did not feel well in this Hotel. The Toillet is very small and does not work proper. When I have been there it was very noisy until late in the night. It is a 3 Star Hotel but I would not even give 1 Star. The breakfast is poor with two pieces of Toast and one crossant, butter and jam, the Orangejuice is fresh, that was nice. There is also Wifi in the whole building and it works proper.

Incredible location! We loved the hotel rooms prices .We were closed to everything! The staff very cool.We became good friends. Hotel is simple but has very good prices( we paid U$S 60) We went to the Casino, we won and and had a free vacation plus U$S 700! Definite we are coming back next time to this lucky hotel

Room Tip: Depending on the season.i would ask for Elias

Reviewed 25 January 2013

Without doubt the worst hotel we have experienced in the last decade of world travel. Although clean, it was essentially old and worn out. Our room was 1960s or 70s vintage with nothing updated or even replaced since that time (including the bed and bedspread). It reminded us of eastern European hotels in former communist countries, except they were low cost. Here, we paid one of the highest prices in our entire 4 week South American trip. Breakfast was also the most meager we had. Not a buffet, rather a serving to each person of coffee (about 1.5 cups per person in the pot), a glass of juice, two small slices of toast, a tiny croissant , one pat of butter and one of marmalade. Its only positive attributes are that it is one block from the bus station, and the staff were friendly--its not their fault it is worn out. (Also near beaches, but so are all hotels in Punta del Este.)

Best thing about the hotel is the location. 300 meters to the beach and 1 block to the bus terminal. The price was the best for similar hotels for the middle of January. The staff were great. When I put my head out the window I could see the ocean.

We stayed only for one day, checkin hour is 15h and we arrived 15h30 and the room was still not ready..

You need to say when u book the room that u want a queen bed if you are a couple! We got here and we had two single beds in our room

The location is incredibly perfect , close to everything and very convenient but Bathroom pictures are true, bed is short for a 1,80m person hight and everything looks old and not maintained.

Breakfast is included however it is not a buffet and there is only one girl to serve 20 people.

BTW I am writing this while I wait for my breakfast, 30 min already and no hope...

It is an incredible value The hotel is simple but is clean, friendly staff specially Pablo,and has the best location next to the beaches and everything, I didn't need a to rent a car
If you are like me and dont want to spend to much money in a hotel room, this is it.
