Beautiful 4*hotel in Pocitos distrrict in Montevideo. Big size of room, and very big size of bathroom! Great breakfast, plus very nice free coffee + cake break in the afternoon :-) Gym and sauna on the top floor. Unfortunately no swimming pool, but only few minutes by feet to city beach and Rambla of Montevideo.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: any room is great in this hotel. We were a group of friends, and got a 4-persons room with huge bath...

This hotel is situated in a very good location in one of the best areas of Montevideo. Many restaurants very near and 2 blocks from the beach. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breackfast is average and rooms are ok but need some revamping. WiFi was bad and at the night I stayed was useless. Price although promotional was still to high for what you get for it.

It is not often that I stay in a hotel which exceeds my expectations. This one did exactly that. The rooms are clean and modern, the breakfast is good, and the hotel is located close to the beach in a safe neighbourhood. You will struggle to find a hotel this good at a similar price. My only criticism is the "fitness centre", which is more of a collection of old and broken equipment than anything else!

Nice clean hotel in a quiet elegant suburb of Montevideo. Within two blocks from beach and close to the Saturday Market at Villa Biarritz Garden. Excellent staff and delicious continental breakfast. Clean room with lovely view of the sea among the buildings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view.

This hotel is very basic, the restaurant is below the level of a 4 star hotel. The cleaning of the rooms lacks a proper guidance and control.
At the left hand side is a noisy garage and at the other side is a bus-stop with very noisy buses
In the vicinity of the hotel, about 20 minutes walking, there are some excellent restaurants that you can easily look up at TripAdvisor
There is a WiFi in the hotel, but it is quite weak at many locations..

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2014

The hotel is in a nice neighborhood, near to stores and some restaurants. The staff was very kind, and the breakfast and the free afternoon snacks were ok (coffee or tea + medialunas).

Maybe I had bad luck, or a bad room, but it was very noisy at night. Door slams, voices and the elevator opening and closing. I woke up many times, the 2 nights I stayed, until the noise stopped around 3 am.

Nevertheless, for the price and location of the hotel, I would give them a second chance.
