The hotel is nothing fancy, but the service was excellent. They have a garage downstairs and help you with the luggage to your room. Very friendly staff and have an elevator that works well. Location is great to downtown, and the beach. The beach was 1 block.

The Hotel Alhambra is 4 blocks from the bus terminal. The price was $90US a night. Pros- location, location, location... half block from Gorlero (main drag) and a cambio office, two blocks from both of the ramblas, and 2 blocks from Virazon Restaraunt for sunsets. Extremely helpful staff who dialed La Huella for me so I could make my reservation...

We stayed at the Alhambra the week before Xmas, just before the rush. This hotel has the best location and a wonderful staff, especially Angel and Nancy. We had a room with a little kitchen and that was a plus. You can't go wrong for the price.

I agree with the reviewer below. This hotel was a terrific value for the money! When we decided to come to Punta del Este the week after New Years (peak travel time in Uruguay), I was shocked by how expensive every hotel was! I found the Alhambra Hotel on Trip Advisor and booked it since it was cheap and appeared...

We booked this hotel, wanting somewhere affordable to stay in punta del este during high season. In fact, it was one of the only hotels even available when we booked in november. If you can look beyond the 70's hotel decor (so out-of-style, its almost in style) , you will be very happy with your stay here. - Our room...

Just got back from a four-night stay in Punta at the Hotel Alhambra and had a wonderful stay. If you are looking for an affordable, clean room close to the beach and downtown area, I definitely recommend this hotel. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was sufficient. They even kept breakfast open longer and made an extra pot of...

We just got back a few days ago from spending our 19th anniversary at Hotel alhambra. Angel got us a room even though it said it was full on the internet. I just called up the hotel and he got us a room. Very nice place to stay. Clean, excellent staff, great beach to lounge or swim at. The only...

Punta del Este is a pricey beach area to visit, but Hotel Alhambra offers a comfortable stay for a reasonable price. I paid about $75 Cdn. You can't beat the location: Steps off the main street, a 5 min walk to the bus station, and a 5 minute walk in opposite directions to the beaches (one on the Atlantic, other...
