Pleasant enough, basic hotel. Rooms are a bit old fashioned but very clean. Breakfast is good and its handy that it runs till 12. Pool is a nice addition. Hotel is well located, right next to the bus station and beaches.

Unfortunately we visited Punta del Este in low season (Beginning of May) and whilst we expected it to be quiet we weren't prepared for just how quiet it was. There really was nothing going on and it was tricky to even find places open to eat. Obviously though this is no fault of the hotel itself.

Overall Very Good.

Hotel Ajax is a small older two story building with character and comfort.The windows have an extra outer blind to pull down to darken the room which I missed at first. Only about 4 blocks to bus station and two to beach one way and about 5 other side. Centered in the commercial and restaurant area, the location is practical and convenient. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable. Bedspread intead of daily -changed duvet cover, but the rooms are very clean . I enjoyed my 5 day stay and would choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: There is no elevator so choose lower floor if you have trouble on stirs. Staff do carry the luggage for you.

I spent a couple of days (2) with my 7 years old child at this hotel. It is conveniently located close to 2 nice beaches, the bus stop (from Montevideo), and plenty of restaurants and pubs in the area.

I was travelling with my family so I spent 1 night at this hotel.
Cons: Breakfast is poor, front desk not very helpful, very small room, bathroom does not look very well cleaned.
Pros: Price.
I would recommend if you're travelling on a budget.

This hotel was reasonably priced on bookings. The staff are very friendly and some of the desk staff speak English. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is good with lots of choices. The location is close to lots of places to eat. The famous hand in the sand is just a few blocks away.
