“Great location”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

Good price for the location and quality of the hotel. Relatively modern hotel with tiny gym and adequate buffet breakfast (toast, cheese, ham, croissants, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice and tea). Rooms were clean and comfortable in size. Hotel was in a good and safe location, close to the beach, shopping and Media Luna - a great place for breakfast!

This hotel offers the perfect combination location-service-quality-price.
Do not expect luxury but the rooms are huge, the place is very clean and service is excellent.
I been to Montevideo many times and truly love this location, is very close to the Rambla and walking distance to many restaurants and cafes. Transportation to all other places is a step away. Breakfast is very good, great croissants etc. Best place to stay in Montevideo.

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights. Our room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the extra pillows. The staff was very friendly and spoke excellent English. Secure, underground parking was very nice for our rental car. Shops and restaurants as well as the beach were all within close walking distance; we never drove our rental car while there. Breakfast was very nice and included coffee, juices, ham, cheese, croissants and pastries, toast, yogurt, and fresh fruits. The rooftop balcony was so nice too.; we enjoyed wine and beautiful views both nights. Our stay at Pocitos Plaza Hotel was very nice and we will definitely stay here again.

The big disappointment was finding no shuttle service as advertised from the airport to the hotel or back. It cost us $60 for an official taxi-shuttle to the hotel and a taxi ride back. For that we would have been better off staying nearer old town at the much cheaper Ibis or a quaint downtown hotel. The hotel itself had nice, large rooms with a mini-view of the river. Everything was clean and the expanded continental breakfast offered several kinds of rolls, ham and cheese, cereals, yogurt as well as juices and beverages.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevator for a quieter rest.

We recently stayed here for two nights. The staff was friendly and the rooms were acceptable. Nothing fancy, but good for the price. Safe neighborhood is great with shops, cafes and restaurants in one direction and the beach walk in the other.

We stayed twice, once for 3 nights and once for 1 night. We liked the large room, comfortable beds, good breakfast, and friendly staff. Their English was fine, and they let us practise our rudimentary Spanish! Several good restaurants around, easy walk to the Mall, and the Rambla. Nice street fair on Sat. Underground parking was appreciated for our rental car.

The hotel was in a great location - on the border of the Pocitos and Punta Carretas neighborhoods. There were plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. It is not a large hotel and cab drivers don't know it, so make sure you have the address if you book there.

The free breakfast was ok, not great, with mostly breads and croissants, although you can order eggs if you can find a staff person to ask. There was free wi-fi throughout the hotel, which was a big plus. The hotel staff were really nice and efficient. They spoke good English, but they were patient with us practicing our Spanish.

We paid about US$170 for a basic room with 3 beds. That seemed expensive, but we had a hard time finding a place that could accommodate 3 people in one room. The room it self was just ok. The place is old and there is a certain lack of cleanliness that comes with age despite the regular cleanings. I stripped the old bed spread off and the sheets were a little worn but clean so I was able to sleep just fine. Overall, the room was acceptable so we would probably return.
