Hotel Bahamas
Ranked #75 of 87 Hotels in Montevideo
Reviewed 10 January 2017

Photos of the hotel on the website were very different than the reality of what the hotel looked like in real life. The neighborhood is very sparse and far away from downtown and the tourist areas. The hotel is clean, but hasn't been decorated or updated since the 1960s. The rooms are barely big enough to walk around the bed, and offer nowhere to put your bag. If you put it on the floor, you can't get out of the bed without stepping in your suitcase. The beds are covered in plastic so the sheets pop off at night and you end up sleeping on the plastic. The bathroom toilet leaked all over the floor although I must admit they came to fix it quickly. The first day our room was never cleaned and when we asked them to clean it in the early evening, they said it was not the time of day they offered cleaning services. So essentially "no", they wouldn't clean it. The wifi doesn't work in our room, only in the hallway, if at all. Each time I went to the front desk to ask about the lack of these services, I was met with a very rude attitude and was told there was nothing they could do. When a hotel has this many problems, a lot of it an be solved by just an apology or a kind attitude, but neither of those were offered to us.

Nice hotel near the airport great neighborhood for a walk by the afternoon, it's very near the carrasco bay which is a great place for families to walk by the beach by the afternoon and evening. The hotel is near the airport and also it has great views from the up floor pool, rooms could be a bit more modern, but there was tv, ac and a nice bed, so everything was OK. Nice and pleasant employees.

Room Tip: Lower floors since there is no lift.

Great location on the ramblas area. Decent value for the money. Room was pretty small, as was the bathroom. However, the price was right and had a decent breakfast and pool area. Good place to stay if your wanting a good price and not downtown.

Room Tip: get a view of the ocean

The hotel..needs some minor work but it could be big to some people, something simple like a change of facet and shower curtains...more pressure in the hot water. The upstairs rooms are to small for us and the bed are to short for tall people. You need to pay extra and stay in the bigger rooms downstairs. Some of the workers are nice specially the old timers. We stay there more than once and now we request the downstairs only because of the size of the rooms and do not want to go up with bags...the breakfast its ok and the restaurant has good chaletas de cerdo. The tv... can not put the volume loud so if you are hard of hearing too bad... over all a hotel is to sleep and take a shower.... will prefer not to have a paper on it that ir says clean or sanitized and assume that it has been done and have a real good shower head with powerful water and not a rusted pipe or no pressure in the water..but its not a real expensive hotel... even though is expensive like everything in Uruguay...

Room Tip: lower floor bigger rooms own parking by room

Cheap solution to 4am flight. This hotel is minutes from the Montevideo airport and not far from local restaurants. The room was small, there's no elevator and the odd floor plan of the hotel makes it hard to find the room (like a maze). However the staff were very professional and does have a restaurant on site for convenience. At least I got to sleep a bit before heading out to the airport at 2am.
