Good value hotel, good breakfast with fresh fruit for about $5 us. 10 min walk to Buquebus, ferry to Uruguay, that's why we booked it. $25 approx for taxi from airport one way. Staff at front desk struggle with basic English, but there's always Google translate on your cell :)

I liked the design of the hotel. The only thing was that we could not have breakfast as it opens late at the weekend.
