Must have been a very nice hotel when opened in the 1930`s. Today a sleeping beauty with most parts in old genuine stile. Hotel owned by government, which is a guarentee that the building will keep its original style. A very nice area is the main lobby, with its stairs and special window in coloured glass

I was there for a sports championship, I really enjoyed being in the beautiful city of Piriapolis in general. The argentino hotel is a big hotel with a great view in front of the sea and a really cool pool

Booked for 1 night two rooms at a price of 218 US dollars per night per room.The photographs on the website looked amazing and is rated 4 stars, so we thought we would splash out and enjoy the luxury. Checked in , nice staff, taken to the third floor, halls...

I have stayed at the Argentino from 1962 till 1992. It is in need of a "face lift" and it has gone thru many, but the history and its glory surely surpass the fact that there's no "flat tv in the rooms". If you take the time to inspect the details of the architecture and craftsmanship, you have a beautiful...

We checked out of our perfectly comfy 3* down the beach to treat ourselves to some 4* luxury. The Argentino delivers on the grandness, but it is so run down and rough around the edges. The staff were helpful. However, more of them at the desk should be able to speak English. The restaurants were very good and efficiently run....

We spent just one night in Argentino stopping in Piriapolis on our way back from Punta del Diablo area to the airport. If you judge this hotel for pure practicalities, perhaps it’s overpriced and uncomfortable, but staying there was definitely an experience to remember. It’s like visiting a living (and very lively!) museum. In certain aspects when staying there I...

What an absolutely amazing and truly beautiful Piriapolis landmark and a stunning piece of history! I travel a lot and staying here was such a welcome relief from the typical "cookie cutter" hotels!

The historical side is wonderful, and the pool was fantastic. Unfortunately, the furniture is REALLY dated and it could use a facelift regarding sheets, blankets and pillows. Breakfast was delicious, though it could be a bit more varied.

The building is gorgeous and located right in front of the beach. The hotel offers a variety of pools and activities for grownups and kids. It has a good restaurant and friendly staff.

“Choose a room facing the garden or away from the Casino. Also, I would recommend the half board option. Many of the restaurants are closed in December or offer no variety on their menus.”
