In Uruguay there is no tourist hotel tax! Substantial discount for using credit card at restaurants, better than cash. Old and dated. Location next to Av 18 de Julio, banks and restaurants. Tango-like dancing at dusk every night in closet park to hotel on 18 de Julio. 10 minutes walk to Independence square, Theater Solon, and Old Town. 60% front desk staff spoke English well. Spanish helpful. Limited tourism info. Hotel suited for mid-range tourists, not luxury. Get an interior room! Noise from outside and other room an issue, no fire resistant walls/doors, weak ventilation. Bed good support. Temperature control difficult. A/C so so. Shower so small, you cannot wash without touching walls or curtain. Maids do a good job. Must go to breakfast early for best selection and seating. Overall a decent accommodation, but requires flexibility ad adaptability. 24 hour pass on Hop on Hop off a great tour and fantastic photo opportunities. Can start from Independence square or central port market from hotel. First day go later, scenery best Stop 8 to end. Next day go early get off at Stop 8, shop, get lunch and enjoy Las Ramblas area. If you stay too late, taxi back few hundred pesos. Also recommend Puerto Carrisco, but will require car or taxis or a lot of bus transfers and time. Free tour Sundays Theatro Solon, but so cheap anyways.
