“Nice, simple hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2007

While we were on a long (southern hemisphere) Summer weekend daytrip to the Punta del Este area, we passed through the small coastal city of Piriapolis. My wife wanted to turn the daytrip into an overnight, so we stopped in a few local hotels. My wife liked the look, feel, and price of the Hosteria Budapest, so we decided to stay.

Hosteria Budapest is a small, simple 2-story/13 room hotel about 2-1/2 blocks away from the beachfront promanade of Piriapolis. Like a lot of Piriapolis, it's a bit of a throwback to another time - architecture dating from maybe the 1940s or 1950s, but well cared-for and very clean. The lobby is like a living room parlor, with sofa and television. There's also free off-street parking for a limited number of cars.

We got a 2nd floor corner room with recently rennovated private bath, minibar refrigerator and TV. The room was smallish - certainly not the size a 4-5 star international chain hotel room (unless one is in, say, the W in Manhattan), but more than adequate for a short stay.

Breakfast was included - as I recall, it was "enhanced continental" - simple, but good quality breads & croissants, juice, yogurt, cereal, and eggs. The breakfast room has some antique furniture that adds to the ambiance.

The hotel's current proprietor is the son of a Hungarian immigrant , and he said the hotel has been run by his family for three generations. The management and staff were pleasant and helpful.

While not directly on the beachfront, the hotel is centrally located to much of what Piriapolis has to offer. There are lots of restaurants close by, and a small market just across the street. Piriapolis is not an upscale destination, but it is a relaxing and pleasant place to "chill".

Overall, the effect of the hotel was much like the small, pleasant 2-3 star hotels and pensiones we've stayed at in France and Italy - simple, clean, and nice. We liked it well enough that we made plans to spend a few days there over the New Year's holiday, but had to cancel due to unexpected visitors. So, we have to wait to experience the excitement and thrills of New Year's Eve in Piriapolis, Uruguay (such that they might be...)
