Hotel Fray Bentos


This hotel was built in 1955 by the State Insurance Bank in the face of the growing need for a tourist image for the city.

On April 24, 1948, the cornerstone was placed in the building to be built. The call for bids for works was made on December 27, 1949. The works would be in charge of the Architects B.Arbeleche and J.H.Domato and were inaugurated on July 30, 1955.

The ideal location of the Hotel, in front of the Roosevelt Park had been determined at the beginning of 1943 after a visit of Dr. Rey Molné, president of the Insurance Bank in the company of the Arq.Dighiero, in charge of Works of the local Municipality.
