I really can't believe that the reviews I read about this hotel were written by people who actually stayed here! The "pillow top bed" advertised on Expedia, isn't here. The "balcony", isn't here. The "laptop-compatible safe" is too small for my laptop. The SUITE I booked doesn't even have a clock, tissues, or a pen. The bathtub plug has nothing to grab to pull it out. At breakfast, the tables were re-set after someone ate there, but the table wasn't wiped first, so there were crumbs on all but one table. There were dirty glasses in the stack of "clean" glasses next to the yogurt drink. It IS in a terrible part of town. When the taxi driver dropped me off, he wouldn't leave the car to bring my bags to the hotel door, and he told me three times (to make sure I understood) to BE VERY CAREFUL. I couldn't even count how many car alarms I heard go off in the next two hours while I unpacked and rested. It is neither for business travelers (no desk) and nowhere to put a laptop where a plug won't need to be in the air since the table does not have a plug, nor for vacationers.... I could go on and on.
Yes, it is close to the Rambla, but since the Rambla covers most of the coast of Uruguay, that's not unusual.
The only redeeming thing, I had an incredible massage there. I don't know the name of the woman, but she worked out knots I didn't know I had. And, the wifi is consistent.
