Looks nice, horrible front desk staff towards fore
Couldn't even stay here. Front desk was incredible how they were treating the dozen or so people trying to get a room when check-in started. They had some computer issue, or too many down rooms, so they said all our reservations were invalid. I peeked at this screen system, it seemed they had at least three "better" rooms available, but said they were not or they could not allow. We have video of this one guy finally exploding after the staff tried to ignore everyone until they just left. People prepaid for these rooms and some came from different countries. This place as a dozen country flags outfront yet was the most unfriendly place we have encountered in all sorry Americas how they treat Spanish speaking and non Spanish speaking foreigners. They insisted we did not prepay, even after showing credit card statement. We were forced to leave and stay with local couch surfer. We contacted and still no action or refund. We never stayed, we never signed or filled legal foreign guest documents, we are not in their security footage. Disgraceful

Cheap for a Reason
This was the mustiest place I’ve ever stayed. The hallways smelled like a high school locker room and the room smelled of mildew and had visible black mold. The bedding was stained and the air conditioner blew nothing but hot air. Spend a little more and stay at a nicer place.

Worst-run hotel ever
There are so many problems with this place I almost don't know where to begin. But at the outset I want to say that the location is great, and that the hotel has potential even though it's not being maintained well. If you don't care about service or security, it's a comfortable enough place at a cheap price. But the staff is terribly incompetent and no one takes responsibility for the many errors committed daily. My stay was for 17 days, and on at least 5 of them they didn't bother to clean my room. Innumerable requests went completely unheeded, and there is no real security in the rooms because there is no chain on the doors, nor any other way to keep staff from entering. The worst offense came after 10:00 one night, as I was lying in bed: a couple came into my room because the "system" somehow listed my room as unoccupied, and the staff had given them the same room. Perhaps not surprisingly, there were multiple occasions when guests would be found screaming at the front desk staff at the top of their voices; they, too, were having problems of one kind or another, and no one was responding. There were also lots of little things. For example, my key wouldn't work, and I'd have to make trip after trip to the front desk to have it remade. The breakfast room opened late almost every day, and one day there was no milk. To make matters worse, the staff rarely apologized, and things never got any better. I'll be back in Montevideo next year, but I won't stay at the Balmoral again.

BPH is a very good overall property for any stay in Montevideo. Easy access to literally everything: Shopping, dining, entertainment, sightseeing, transportation etc.

Location is excellent. The staff is generally friendly. They misrepresent the fact that they offer a parking garage. It is some available spaces, very few and not comfortable to use. I ended paying in a closed by parking to leave my rental safe.

The staff was helpful, polite, and responsive. The room, the bed , and the bathroom were all quite small.
