When we arrived in Punta del Est we stoped at the tourist information center and the lady informed us that in the central area the cheapeast hotel we could find would cost at least US$150. We went in te winter time and we found out that she was wrong, there were plenty of Hotels and much cheaper. We got two... More

We have stayed here twice - once at the very peak of high season (Jan.2014) and once at the nadir of the low season (July 2014). The price was the same. The room is not fancy - but who comes to Punta to stay in the room? Look out the window and you are delighted by the beach two short... More

Our hotel room was gross. Very dated, felt old and stuffy. Bathroom was ancient, smelly and didnt feel clean. The only reason we stayed here is because we booked late and it was the only place available. I would not stay here again. The good thing about the hotel is the location. Close to the main street and the beaches.... More

We visited Punta in high season (Christmas time) so most accommodation was booked / very expensive. At the Alhambra we had a small room with 3 single beds and it was clean and basic. The staff were friendly and the location was great. Right by the beaches and main street. There was a lot of street noise (firecrackers and people)... More

Hotel Alhambra is centrally located and within walking distance to the bus station. It's between the Playa Brava beach and main walking avenue of the Punta del Este peninsula. Our room looked like it was cool back in the 1960's-1970's. It's in need of some serious updating, especially the lock & key door knob that was really difficult to open... More

If you are looking for a no-frills place, seek no more. The place is clean, the staff is helpful, and it is centrally located. They also have free parking, which is a plus. Our room was very small, had no safe, the bed was not very comfortable, and the door locks didn't inspire confidence.

My husband was born in Uruguay. He wanted to spend three days in Punta del Este because he wanted a place that felt like "home". He knew that in the city's hotels were expensive. I helped him to find hotels from the Trip Advisor. So, He chose Hotel Alhambra because of location and lower prices. I did'nt like the 70's... More

I came into my stay at the Alhambra thinking at worst, it would be a dated place that would be serviceable enough, especially in peak season. I expected comfortable beds, adequate space, and a clean, attentive staff. Well, it was clean and the staff was fine, but that's about it. I got over the '70s style carpeting and decor, but... More

Ok, this is not a Ritz by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, if you want to stay in a hotel with great service, an amazing location and a decent price during peak Punta time, Alhambra Hotel is your place. It is on a one way street about a block from the beach. If you go West down... More
