Lonely Planet accurately describes this hotel as 'faded but friendly'. You can see that it's many decades past its prime, yet I suspect I liked it better for that. It was great value, in an excellent location and the staff were really helpful. We arrived with a bag of wet clothes, after our hostel in Ponta del Diablo failed to... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this place. Loved the high ceilings, and the bed was comfortably firm. It was like a palace after roughing it in Central America for a while. For this price you can't expect TOO much, so just don't. We just happen to find old buildings charming. The room needed some attention but was definitely clean. Fantastic... More

The location is perfect (in front of a beautiful old and luxurious theatre) and the hotel is wonderfull. An old place full of magic. The staff is friendly, helpful and there´s a family atmosphere. The hotel is cheap but high quality. So, what else can I say? totally recommended

Splendido Hotel is definitely not as chique nor as elegant as their website would have you believe and so I could symphathise with those booking on line. They would possibly be disappointed. However, it is a wonderfully safe and clean establishment right in the heart of Montevideo. You couldn't ask for nicer people running the place: helpful, obliging and with... More

Don't be sucked in by the trendy website... the Hotel Splendido is not splendido in the least! OK so it's got a kind of groovy deco thing going on...although most of the place looks like that isn't intentional - it just hasn't been re-decorated since the 1970s. The worst thing about it though was the stench of rising damp, which... More

As another reviewer said (really wish we'd checked Trip Advisor before we travelled!), if you check out the 'hotel' website you'd think you'd just found a bargain boutique hotel right in the centre of Montevideo. However, the reality is that Hotel Splendido is really a glorified hostel. If you go with that expectation it is not bad value and the... More

I will never come here again. I thought it was ok in the beginning( as i am not wanting to spend a ton of money im willing to put up with some inconveniences). I could have stayed in a hostel with 10other people in the room and had a better sleep. The hotel markets it self to be cheap and... More

I have to say, for what it is like in reality, this place does an excellent job marketing itself on their website. To look at their website, you would think you are staying at this great modern hotel on the cheap. My wife and I went for it and made a reservation. The building is gorgeous and many of the... More
