Carrasco Hotel goes on

I took another look at this beautiful historic building, located in Carrasco near the River Plate.

View from the Rambla corner

It's official - Sofitel is telling the world it's them doing the restoring job. Hope this means business.

There is a tall hedge around the building, I could just point a camera at random over it. I should be taller. There's work being done inside.

Inside works

Restoring involves a lot of adornments, especially inside the building. But this window will give an idea of what is involved.


The area close to the hotel also needs some serious cleaning and restoring. Maybe it happens when the hotel is finished!


I will continue to follow this project from time to time. It will be a big symbolic event if the hotel starts working again.

  1. Great textures to work with in that old building. I wonder if it will be as photographically interesting when the restoration process is complete.
