My friend and I stayed here for two nights on our way to the beach in Oceania. This guesthouse is spectacular! For the price (which is very affordable) we were so surprised by the beautiful decorations, smart double paned windows which kept out the noise, cool Art Deco facade and balconies with great views of Ciudad Vieja, and the amazing...

This proved an excellent choice for us when spending a few days in Montevideo. The old city is compact and we didn't come close to seeing everything in walking distance! Karen and Sergio seem to be part of an extensive network of tourist operators--Karen even arranged for a trip to a football match and a car to the airport! We... More

This is an ideally located guest house for anyone wanting to stay in Montevideo old town. It is lovely inside and has really nicely decorated rooms. There are loads of restaurants within a stones throw of the building and if you plan to head off to the beach then the bus stop is more or less outside. What makes this... More

Gorgeous urban loft in the heart of Montevideo. Karen was gracious and incredibly accommodating. This was a wonderful spot to relax for a few days. Loft is HUGE and architecturally interesting. Large windows open up to a lively pedestrian street. However, loft is really quiet and private.

We traveled to Montevideo in August, 2014. If you have discovered that there are is only one good guide book about the city you are correct. I love researching travel and there was not much. Here are some highlights that I hope are helpful. We stayed at Casa Sarandi, because it was in the old city. What I didn’t realize... More

We were so delighted with our stay at Casa Sarandi. Karen was a delight and provided us with so much information regarding must dos and restaurants and attractions. We had 2bedrooms with ensuites and everything was spotless and great quality. Location was really good, right in old town and walkable to everything. We will return to stay again.

This B&B couldn't be more central: 100 m away from the Independence Square & Teatro Solis; 10 or 15 mins walk from La Rambla; 15 mins walk to the food market at the port which was absolutely fantastic. We had the most wonderful lunch here. Karen is a most informative & helpful proprietor & she told us sbout a realky... More

We had two nights in one of the two en-suite rooms: spacious and very comfortable, although the bathroom is tired and poorly laid-out. A nice little balcony high above the narrow street - but the traffic noise out there from the constant stream of buses has to be heard to be believed. No problem, though, within the nicely double-glazed room... More

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
