Gran Hotel is a quality hotel in Fray Bentos, including pool, gym and sauna. Rooms are quite basic, but clean and comfy. Breakfast is good value. The whole experince is close to western standards. Always a pleasure to visit this hotel.

A pleasant stay at the Gran Hotel. The rooms were large and clean. The wifi was rather hit or miss, but adequate for our needs. They played Heart FM in the lobby which was kind of odd, considering you are in Uruguay! Breakfast was fine, with a good choice. The pool wasn't as clean as it could have been. We... More

We stayed just one night at the Gran Hotel which was perfect to visit the old Fray Bentos factory. The hotel is modern and has the feel of an airport hotel. the rooms were clean and warm and comfortable and breakfast had a good selection. The staff were very friendly and helpful but there are not many places to eat... More

The hotel was clean and the rooms are OK. The staff however seemed not to like their job. They could hardly great you and give the geust the usual hospitality you could expect. The restaurant was closed on monday. That was good because obn Tuesday the restaurant uses a ventilation which was oeprated by a very noisy engine. You could... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in November 2013 as part of a two week trip to Uruguay from Australia. This hotel is situated adjacent to a nice park above the Rambla and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Upon arrival we were given an upstairs room, but it was obvious it had previously been used by smokers. After... More

Fray Bentos is not a tourist destination, but a small quiet town. I have stayed at the hotel twice, once in November 2010 and other time in November 2011. I can agree with all said about the hotel here, it's clean and offers the basic services, but nothing more. The breakfast was quite different each time, but not very good... More

I agree with most of the previous comments. The main problem is it is overpriced at $90USD for a std double and $105 for the superior room. But, let's face it, they can get away with it. It does seem strange as these are near the prices we paid in Montevideo for a lot better place and service. For example,... More

decent breakfast, very clean hotel, friendly staff but in no rush to help, nice cooling pool in the summer heat - and right across the road from the gorgeous Rio Negro- but far too pricey at 100 US dollars a night for a simple room with 2 singe beds
