We spent a week at casa sarandi while we gathered information about Montevideo for a possible move there in a year. The room was very comfortable, the kitchen was great for when we wanted to cook and there's a bus stop right outside the door. Our one concern was that the street (buenos aires) in front of the casa was... More

Originally I inquired about the loft property that owners Karen and Sergio also have in Montevideo, but when sharing my travel plans, Karen wisely steered me toward the Guesthouse. As a solo traveler for the first part of my trip, it was great to share the guesthouse with other travelers. I was able to meet some really cool people to... More

Casa Sarandi offers a unique experience for anyone traveling to Montevideo. First, the loft space is fantastic, much roomier and more comfortable than most rentals through Airbnb. Second, it is centrally located in the old city (Ciudad Vieja), a great place to stay and hang out with easy access to the rest of the city. Third, when you rent Casa... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in November 2013 whilst on a trip from Australia. We had booked through the Casa Sarandi website and had good communication with Karen beforehand so everything was well-organised. Unfortunately, the property is on a very busy street and we had issues finding it and then being able to stop somewhere close by and unload our... More

We discovered Casa Sarandi on your site and thought we'd give it a try. It was a real surprise. Karen was so welcoming, friendly and helpful - a good ambassador for Montevideo. Her daily website updates on events in Montevideo were extremely helpful. The apartment is so convenient to everything we wanted to see - and - the price was... More

My only concern with Casa Sarandi is that it may become so top-tier and glitzy that the only way to get a reservation involves being on the speed-dial list at Johnny Depp's cell phone. Short of that outcome, I do not see myself staying anywhere else when I bunk in Montevideo.

Very large and beautifully decorated apartment in the heart of ciudad vieja. Perfect location to venture out to Montevideo's old town during the day. Area can be a bit boring and empty at night but that may have been due to the Holidays. The owner provides exceptional service by explaining anything a visitor may want to know about the city...

Thanks so much for the great review! You are absolutely right that the new year is a very quiet time in Montevideo. I am just looking now at the correspondence and see I wrote "You should be aware that at this time of year, most Montevideans are at the beach and so the city is extremely quiet, especially on public...

We stayed at the Sarandi Loft, which is a few blocks away from the guest house, perfectly located in the pedestrian zone (and therefore very quiet). If you don't want to stay at an anonymous hotel and prefer space and privacy, this is the perfect alternative. A large, stylish room, which is a true home away from home, including kitchen,... More

Dear Carmen thank you so much for the review! Yes, it is amazing how for such a central location the loft is really so quiet. As you mention it overlooks the main pedestrian street, Sarandi. The cross street is a narrow one so is only used by cars, no buses or trucks. I remember you were concerned about the issue... More

I travel often for work, so when taking vacations I prefer to choose hotels that are less “generic” than the chain hotels where I frequently stay. I was going over TripAdvisor looking for options in Montevideo, and luckily I decided to check the Bed & Breakfast section, where I found Casa Sarandi. It was great. Even though, more than a... More

I stayed in Casa Sarandi for two nights in September 2013. I cannot say enough good things about this accommodation. The apartment was pretty, perfectly clean and very well kept.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Sarandi is a 1930s style art-deco guesthouse and loft in the heart of Montevideo's Old City - the Ciudad Vieja in Spanish. The guesthouse is a block from the Colonial Square and the Cathedral and two blocks from Uruguay's premier theatre, the Solis and from the rambla - a 25-km long promenade, great for biking and running. The owners Karen and Sergio have lived in Montevideo since 2000, love the city and the national music scene and will help make your stay unique with their daily recommendations -most of which are walking distance-- for things to do, places to go, the most unusual places to eat and drink and the most interesting music and culture Montevideo should be more famous for. Karen authors Guru-Guay, a blog that brings you the beef on Montevideo and Uruguay, one of the few up to date sources of information in English. The guest house is very intimate - just two guest rooms. Both rooms have hardwood floors, antique furnishings and original art. Besides your guest room and private bathroom, Casa Sarandi offers a cosy living room and a fully-equipped modern kitchen. ... more   less
