We arrived in Uruguaiana for a very short trip (just for two days) and as there are just couple of strange hotels on booking.com we were planning to stay at the best and the oldest one - "Gloria". As we arrived early around 10am we wanted to leave our bags and start exploring the town. However, on receiption we were told to come back in couple of hours. It is not nonsence for us as it is not always available. Nevertheless they did not look overbooked - it was low season and it was completely empty. Non-flexible at all! After couple of minutes in internet-cafe we found another hotel - "President" in 5 minutes by taxi. Quiet different - modern, spacious rooms, clean (except the swimming pool area lol), breakfast with the view from the top of the building and flexible enough to check-in earlier with no questions. We have got a suite!... Some businesses like Hotel "Gloria" are stuck in the past. I recommend the business owners changing their focus to the customers' needs rather than being proud of being the oldest and unflexible.
