Fabulous 8.6 From 124 reviews

Good 6.0
Between 3 and 4
I’m between 3 and 4 because the second night they never made the room, so me husband and I found our room just as we left it. It was really disappointing, since we were tired after a whole day of walking. They never said anything about it. Other than the poor service, the location is good, just be aware that since it is in the downtown you may not have many options of places to eat/ drinks at night walking distance from the hotel during weekends.

This hotel is in an amazing location, it's clean, and comfortable. The staff are all very friendly. I rented a room with a view and was disappointed to get a view of a concrete wall on the first floor.

Great location and great service. I would definitely stay there again. (Rooms are small, but wasn’t an issue)

Very Good 8.0
Property was reasonably clean and not as expensive as other hotels in Montevideo. Did not like the neighborhood. The safe, lamp and mini fridge were not working upon arrival. The first two items were fixed. We didn’t realize the mini fridge didn’t work so did not inform management. The AC was overhead and blasted cold air on you. If you shut it off room was hot and humid. Room was tiny and humid. And air vent in bathroom was very dirty. Breakfast was ok, staff was great, and common areas were very nice cool and cosy.

Very nice hotel
I was very happy with the hotel, staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located very close to the port and near the old town pedestrian blocks and the Sarandi shopping area. Old town is run down, but felt safe during the day.

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is perfectly located near the pedestrian street walkways with wonderful restaurants and shopping nearby; its also very close to the port if you are traveling by ferry. The staff was very kind and welcoming; we got there very early in the morning so the room was not ready yet but the man working the front desk offered to take our bags and gave us a map with plenty of recommendations of where to eat and visit. The room is smaller but very comfortable and we had no issues with it being too noisy. I would definitely stay here again.

Some Charm in Old City
Front desk staff is friendly and helpful when you can find one who speaks English. Internet connection is terrible. Halls are very hot. Rooms are a bit small.

Reasonably Priced & Clean Option
Reasonably priced, good accomodation. Not in the very centre but within 15 minutes walking distance. Rooms are small but clean and with A/C. Breakfast was good, there were a few additional items as opposed to just coffee and pastries.
