                  I was quoted a price of eighty dollars. They charged me 2,200 Uruguayan pesos, much more than the quoted price, and didn´t give me a receipt.

                  Big room and view

                  It was a hotel in decadence

                  is central and easy shifting, plus the excellent care

                  Too much noise in the room cleaning time

                  Good location, an old building which had seen better days.

                  The single room was really small.

                  Good location, English spoken by very friendly staff. Well maintained. Other facilities nearby inckluding good restaurants, shopping and money exchange. Also offered advice on other trips and entertainment which were excellant. Advice also offered on safety and where not to be after dark.

                  Our room was smelly. Had clearly been used by smokers. Security guards outside of our room through much of our stay 24 x 7. Not sure who was next door. Never concluded if this may me feel more safe !!!!

                  - Perfect location for the purpose of my trip. - Some historical attractions are really nearby. Maybe needs an extra walk for some others, but always reasonable.

                  No coffee-maker, no iron in the room.

                  Unbeatable location in the centre of town.

                  A bit outdated in the decor but very comfortable nevertheless

                  Central location close to good restaurants, money exchange and romm very confortable. WiFi was good and hotel staff was great. Will return and recommend as a fair option to stay I diowntown.

                  Wifi had an temporary issue 1 night, and other guests noise in the corridors after 10pm (teens). Also, not many room service options. Suggest: a) revise the Wifi install or change isp b) Launch a new small menu with minimum 3 tipes of snacks.

                  Location and staff. Breakfast was also very good, and with a nice view . The room was confortable, there was high connectivity to internet. It had a bar down in the hobby and good restaurant.

                  The bathrrom, is quite small. I ask for a room with bath tube in the bathroom but instead I d a shower,a very good one, but with a courtain so the water went out wetting all the bathroom flour and also the wooden flour of the corridor. They charge you service , about 10 % over the booking price.

                  muy buena ubicacion , habitaciones muy comodas , desayuno muy bueno

                  I like the location, right downtown and close to everything... I also like the fact that there is wifi everywhere, even in the bedrooms.

                  It serves breakfast you can actually eat - a welcome relief from South America's toast + jam standard. It is also quite conveniently located and the staff are helpful and speak English.

                  Despite looking good on the pictures here at Booked.net, the place is really run down and the rooms feel depressing. Very small, very old and not renovated. Equipment & furniture also very old and stale. The hotel's gym is a joke, and prices for any extra-paid services are ridiculous given the quality. Also, I've been ripped off ( 15 %) when paying with pesos instead of dollars, but felt too tired to argue.

                • Older travelers

                  We have stayed there before and like the location and amenities.

                  The breakfast could be better.....more fruit. They had a basket of fruit the first day and then not again on the following 4 days.

                  Good value and they gave me an upgrade without asking.

                  Traffic noise is loud if windows are opened.
