We loved this hotel and recommend it.
The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. There was a microwave and refrigerator included in a hideaway kitchen area. The wifi connection was excellent and so was TV reception. You have complete control over room temperature. The hotel is very modern and new-looking; the lobby, hallways, restaurant, etc. are bright, clean, and attractive.
The staff was always friendly and helpful, and could speak English. An example of their service: although the hotel's informational brochure says laundered items are returned in 24 hours, when I asked to get them back sooner they said no problem and returned them to me in about four hours with no extra charge. When checking out I asked about getting a cab and the desk clerk ordered one immediately; it pulled up before we even walked out the door.
The free breakfast was delicious and included scrambled eggs, bacon, cold cuts, various fruits, medialunas, other rolls and breads, orange juice, coffee, and quite a few other things I don't remember: a nice, varied selection.
We found the location just about perfect. It's on a commercial and residential street about a block from the pleasant and upscale Punta Carretas shopping mall. There are various coffee shops and restaurants in the mall and in the neighborhood. The area is very safe. There are ATMs in the mall with a security guard posted nearby. The Rambla is two or three blocks away.
