Hotel 25 de Mayo, Maldonado, Uruguay (November 2019 - 3 nights). Staying at this particular hotel in Maldonado is a fantastic way to save money by not staying in Punta del Este or Piriapolis! Hotel 25 de Mayo is great for the budget traveler and costs 3 times less than the hotel on the plaza corner. Just 1 block away from the central plaza, it is great value at $19USD. A private room with bathroom, tv and wifi. A relaxed atmosphere and reception area. I stayed for 3 nights and visited Punta del Este from here. Recommended!
