So we stayed here as part of our tour which had provided us with semi decent accommodation so far. We weren't expecting flash, but three stars means semi-decent right? Nope! In our room the electricity socket was hanging out of the wall & when I plugged my straightener in to the "safe" outlet on the other side of the room... More

After reading some reviews, and as a frequent Montevideo visitor, I thought this hotel would be nice, but it turned out to be a mess. Very old and crammed rooms, dirty bathrooms and almost no furniture and/or wardrobe space to hang clothes or put your stuff in. Don't stay there!

Uglz building from outside, but that is the least problem. Situated very convinient , can walk to the old city and there are many buses almost in the front of the hotel. Inside , the hotel needs renovation. Rooms are small, bathroom and room dirty. White cover on the bad had some yellow pomints, so I decided to sleep in... More

Stayed here as part of a tour. One very ugly building from the outside. You could barley walk around the bed let alone have anywhere to put your suit case. Very smelly, old, damp and what you would call very basic. However had a great location so for a one night stop so that was good.

We stayed at this hotel as part of GAP adventure and what an absolute dump! We walked in to our room to find the most awful smelling smoke filled room, someone had obviously been chain smoking in the room the previous night. The room was small (barely enough room to have a suitcase and walk around the bed) the bathroom... More

The hotel is very good located, with everything in walking distance. The rooms are basic, the breakfast was good. The breakfast room and the lobby were nice and quiet. The price was very low so it was very good value.

Close to the centre of the city, Austral is in a great location. The reception area of the sixties-style building is deceptively comfortable. The rooms a pretty grim and grubby. Cracked tiles and broken lavatory seat summed up the bathroom. You don't have to worry about your room being made up and cleaned to a reasonable standard - they don't... More

Stayed here as part of a G Adventures tour. The lobby and breakfast room are recently renovated, but the rooms haven't been touched in perhaps 40 years. The bathroom was dirty, the bedding was old, worn and not clean, and the noise from the street was pretty bad. They need double glazed windows and they have to replace everything -... More

I stayed at Austral Hotel in early August 2012. This is a really modest place that I do not recomend. Rooms need urgent renovation. Dirty walls, old and tiny bath, horrible carpet. The only good points are the breakfast and the location. The shower was basically non-functional. Probably one of the worst places I've been.
