Casa Zinc in La Barra, Uruguay is an absolutely charming boutique hotel well worth searching out. At first glance, this hotel is at least a hundred years old and stunning in its own way. The truth is, it is only 5 years old and is built from completely recycled materials, down to the bricks and plumbing fixtures. The rooms are...

This is a gem in a humble residential neighborhood just 20 minutes east of bustling Punta del Este. A wooden door leads to the courtyard of this interesting brick building. The breakfast room/office has huge windows and collection of old things: globes, maps, bottles, books and more. The architecture books on the center table hint at the owner's talents, and...

This is a very small hotel renovated with exquisite, refined taste. Every detail is well thought out and carries from the moment you open the Zinc metal doors and peek inside. We'd had a long drive and were welcomed, offered a nice coffee, and given an opportunity to relax before even being shown our room. We immediately felt at home....

We had the pleasure of spending a few nights at Casa Zinc while touring the coast of Uruguay and absolutely loved the place and the staff. The aesthetic is funky and charming, in a comfortable, low-key, upscale sort of way. Our room had a huge window facing the inner courtyard (which we loved) and was well appointed (e.g., great reading...

Was it real? Was I really there? Was I in some foreign movie? Possibly the movie "The Motorcycle Diaries" based on Che Guerara's epic motorcycle ride through South America in the 1950's?(The design of Casa Zinc could be something right out of that movie.) No, just a delightful stay at an amazing place and an amazing experience at Casa Zinc....

My wife and I stayed at Casa Zinc for 2 nights in early October as part of 3 day trip to Uruguay. It is genuinely one of most unique and memorable places we've ever stayed in. As other reviewers have noted the architecture and interior design are based on salvaged and recycled antiques and materials which gives the place an...

We stayed at Casa Zinc, the last weekend in May, an Argentine public holiday, so things were much busier than normal for the time of year. So busy indeed, that the only seats available were on the Buqebus midnight, slow ferry, via Colonia.The First Class part does not apply to the bus, which is the bulk of the route &...

In order to explore the immediate surrounding areas of PDE we decided to stay in La Barra rather than in PDE itself. Based on reviews and travel guides we decided to stay at Casa Zinc. We did not regret. From the moment we arrived at the property we felt it was the right choice. The Posada is designed in a...

We stayed at Casa Zinc for 3 nights only during our Easter Break from Sao Paulo. If you are tired of the normal big chain business hotels, then this is the best retreat you will have during your stay in Uruguay! Casa Zinc is a beautiful property. Spacious, well-designed rooms with plenty of natural light and superb attention to detail...

We have spent three nights in Casa Zinc in the Architects room. Very cute decor, great attention to detail! The owner is a very talented architect who does his own furniture as well as building projects. He was more then helpful in telling us all about the surrounding and giving us great recommendations about where to eat, what to see,...
