It's a dump, I don't even know where to start. Smelly rooms, stains all over, furniture in bad conditions, terrible bed. So much much better nearby for the same price or few couple extra dollars. And obviously, because of such bad conditions, Hotel only lets you book with no free cancelations.

From outside the hotel looked something like a shed. At night an illuminated sign up on the roof was turned out so I even hardly could recognize the place in the dark. As from inside the hotel was more or less in good condition. Clean and tidy. Spacious hall beside reception which served as a breakfast room in the morning.... More

We were basically forced to stay at this hotel as we were in punta for New Years and this was the only accommodation that we could find for a reasonable price. Well actually, it wasn't reasonable it was quite expensive but we couldn't really do much about it. The rooms wer nothing special. The bathroom is so small you had... More

Hotel Aquarium was one of the cheapest options I could find in Punta del Este, however as it was hot season accommodation price was not cheap at all. So I decided to spend in Punta only 1 night and continue my vacations in more affordable Piriapolis. As for hotel Aquarium, it was a decent lodging, located in central part of... More

Long walk from bus terminal to hotel (over 15 minutes). Room was average at best...closet door was difficult to open, the front door to room shook when others on floor opened their door. Breakfast was decent, Internet in lobby was tempermental (staff did not care to repair), hotel appeared to be in a cross-road state of being renovated.

We walked from the bus station to the hotel. It was easy to find. Great breakfast. Lots of fruit. Close to the beach and the grocery store.

This hotel was very clean. AC worked well in our room, as did the fridge. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. Nice selection for breakfast - including delicious pastries and fresh fruit! Negatives - a pretty far walk to any of the swimable beaches. It is very close to the coast, but the nearest beach for swimming is a pretty... More

The rooms were nice, breakfast was good. The only problem we had was that WIFI didn't work on our floor, I told the staff about it but they didn't seem to care cause it still worked in the lobby. So it was inconvenient to have to go downstairs every time I wanted to check my mail for 3 days. This... More
