Reviewed November 29, 2013

decent position budget hotel
electric went , they changed my room so the staff were very good but air con not great and bathroom not the best
the area was nice but hotel lacking in amenities and very dated would benefit from a good makeover
there are some good resteraunts locally and its close to station bus and a 10 minute walk from the main harbour where the busy bars are
the breakfast was a cold buffet affair and very average but the staff again were really helpful
it is value for money here as Punta del este is an expensive area
if you can afford more i would suggest you stretch to something in the harbour area

Room Tip: defo go for the superior not much more and worth upgrading

The hotel is very well located in walk distance from both sides of the rambla. The room is simple, the bath towels were worn out, but ok. Breakfast was not worth, would rather go out and take it anywhere else. There is a Freddo just on the corner.

We stayed at this hotel last weekend.
It has a great location, just a block away of Gorlero Avenue (Punta del Este main street). 4 blocks away from the bus/coach station, there are several exchange offices and a Casino too.

Florinda is not a fancy place, I would say budget-friendly something good since Punta del Este is an expensive city. Our room was quite simple (almost exactly as in the pictures), big bed (regular quality), closet, AC and a big bathroom. The TV had only a couple of channels (10-15).

Breakfast is the best part: buffet style, 2 varieties of bread, ham, cheese, medias lunas, dulce de leche, yogurt, coffee, tea, orange juice and the usual stuff.

The hotel have several bikes that are free to use, they are in rusty condition but worked fine for us.


Bottom line, if you are in a tight budget (we paid usd137 for 2 nights) this is a great and well connected place.

We checked in to this hotel on April 20th. My wife and I stayed there for 2 nights. As the room was clean it did have a funny smell to it. We opened the window for the whole day but this did not help. We stayed in the Superior Room. As the room is updated the bathroom is something that needs a lot of work. As you might have noticed there is no pics for the bathrooms for this Hotel. The elevator is so small it is impossible to fit two people with luggage in at the same time. Both computer for guest use were broken. When asked about it to reception he made no effort in helping. The bikes for rent are USD $ 11 per day but they had no breaks working. So we had to pay USD $ 11 per hr down the street at a bike shop. All in all a good place but not great. Breakfast seating is small.

Room Tip: Check the bed as mine was very beat up and mushy. Felt like it had a hole in the mattress.

Nice and affordable option to stay right in the heart of Punta. Sure not a luxury hotel, but with clean and spacious rooms.
The downside is that the breakfast area is too small for the amount of people in the hotel. If you want to have a peaceful breakfast go early in the morning.

Here's the problem.........
We took the Economy room but even before the porter opened the room door he said 'you can up grade for 15dollars'. I knew we were in for disappointment. We only require a simple clean room with working shower, toilet and a half decent bed....we got that and we also got an ingrained damp/ mold odour that we just couldn't cope with. We don't care what the price is, a room shouldn't smell like that. We looked at the upgrade option and while the odour was less, it was still not good. The next morning we packed up. No Cigar!

The hotel is simple but has all the necessary amenities. Although the rooms were a bit outdated they were very clean. Breakfast was fantastic. The staff was exceptional very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff even prepared breakfast early for us becuase we had a very early departure. The bicyc, beach chairs, umbrellas and towels were a very good bonus. Would highly recommend.
