Reviewed 19 January 2014

Found a really good price for this hotel, so decided to stay here for a night. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful when we needed something. The breakfast was by far the best of all the breakfasts that we tried during our 3-week trip in Argentina and Uruguay. For the right price, this hotel is incredible.

Only downside is that we weren't really close to the center or to the port, but this depends on your interests and needs.

Montevideo seems to have lots of these types of small hotels. Clean, comfortable and welcoming.

Pocitos Plaza offers a good experience for the money. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, good breakfast and all in a great location. There is even a parking garage/gas station right across the street.

While not the Four Seasons you probably weren't expecting that at these prices. A solid choice if you are looking at staying in Pocitos.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise bring earplugs. All these hotels use mini-splits for cooling and heat...

My friends and I stayed just for one night, the Hotel was good, the attendants very polite and the location was great, close to the Rambla and the Shopping, in a very safe neighborhood. The room was ok, but they didn´t have non-smoking rooms and we could smell it all over it. We try to change it, but all were the same.

Was there on business for 2 nights.
Front desk attendants very nice.
Room simple but clean, nice strong shower and nice towels.
Free wifi working fine.
Would recommend for business shirt trips.
Good location in very safe neighborhood, a few restaurants close by (I liked AMARETTO, great salads and desserts).
If you like small hotels, not too fancy but comfortable this is a choice.

My stay couldn't go any better, everything was impeccable. From the comfort of the room (mini fridge, LCD TV, a really comfy couch, queen-size bed, hot tub). And the location (one block away from the beach) is terrific since you've plenty of nice places to go out and grab a meal, the surroundings are the nicest in town (far from Ciudad Vieja). This hotel is a must-go if you're near the city!

I booked this hotel because it was in the same area I used to live as a child.
The hotel is ok, and according to the other hotel offered, it is really good.
It is clean, and yes, a little bit dated. It is not a 5 star hotel, but I barely stayed in when I visited.
There are so many things to do and so many outdoor activities that the hotel is used only for sleeping.
I do agree that the staff is not very polite, very young people who seem to be studying and working at the same time, maybe they just need a little advise on that.
I did try to book a room from home and told me the hotel was full, but as soon as I got there they told me they did have a room for me and it was a relief.
The breakfast is great! I know it is not the "american" breakfast, but according to uruguayan standards, it is amazing.
Anyway you are very near MEDIALUNAS CALIENTES if you want to have a great uruguayan croissant, and a couple of blocks away from 21 de setiembre where you can get at cantegril the best ice cream, and from Chez Piñeiro where you can have the best pizza and faina ever.
One block away is the famous Biarritz Park, where you can visit the Feria de Villa Biarritz local market on saturdays which is delightful.
Montevideo is still a great city to visit, even though everyone tells you it is very dangerous, trust me, it is not that bad.

We read all the reviews before booking this hotel, and thought it would be a fairly upscale place to stay. Wrong! It is a hotel that probably saw it's better days about 20 years ago. The rooms are very tired and run down; it purports to have a view of the Rio de la Plata - wrong again. The only views are of a rundown apartment building across the street. It also purports to have a bar - wrong! The hotel staff could really care less about answering questions or providing information. We requested assistance making a dinner reservation, and what we got was an attempt, but sorry, no reservations available. When we walked to the restaurant to make our own reservation - no problem! The only good thing is the location - very convenient to the rambla, buses and restaurants in Pocitos. Breakfast was ok - you could request huevos, though they were not on the buffet. Overall, the hotel was clean, but very tired and the staff were not helpful.

Room Tip: The suites are spacious, but can be noisy if you are overlooking the road.
