Nice Small Boutique Hotel
This was a last-minute reservation because of an unplanned change in flight times non-stop to the US, which was most likely due to a major rainstorm. Boutique hotel. Room was not as sleek and photogenic and modern as the lobby, but not necessary for a comfortable night. Nice fresh hot and cold breakfast with exceptional and attentive staff with a great selection of fresh fruits and beverages, including tea options. Good restaurant options just outside the door as well as shopping.

Nice affordable hotel
Friendly and helpful staff, nice room but wi-fi didn't work well on the 4th floor where I stayed. Very good breakfast and great location, near old town, restaurants and shops.

The location couldn't be any better if you main intention to be in Montevideo is to explore its Old City's highlights. Take note that the rooms and building are rather old, so, do not expect a 5-star modern hotel. For us, the location, service and cleanliness are the main priorities. In all these, Alvear Hotel do not disappoint. Shoutout to the friendly, polite and helpful staff, especially Roberto & Oscar at Front Desk!!

Couple happy with their stay
We stayed for 4 nights are were happy with our choice. Very good location to the central and old town area without being noisy, with 24 hour reception. The rooms fitted the price we paid - basic design but had everything we wanted - ensuite with shower, tv to watch the football, wifi, mini fridge, storage etc. Breakfast was the best of the entire two week trip with lots of choice and fresh fruit. I would recommend if you want somewhere nice to stay without having to spend a lot and you are not bothered about staying in one of the super high end expensive hotels.
