Spent 5 nights as part of a combined ‘Buenos Aires/Montevideo’ trip. Always look for small stylish hotels and the Alquimista is absolutely spot on. Beautiful 1920s building, lovely room, freshly-cooked breakfast, and just an all-round wonderful ‘feel’ staying here. The real highlight though was the welcoming hospitality and local advice from Carolina and Mark - do ask how to find Jueves 5 for a post-city-sightseeing drink if you want to sample an out-of-the-way bar which tourists rarely find. Also have bikes to borrow which is a great way to explore the city beyond the immediate centre and the coast as Montevideo is mainly flat and cyclist-friendly. I can’t see how anyone would not enjoy staying here and I recommend it highly.
