We had a lovely two days at Montevideo and the staff went out of their way to help us. Gonzalo telephoned to check things out for us. Thank you. The room was quiet and confortable. We liked the simple breakfast. We were disappointed that the linked grill restaurant in the port market closed at 16:30. The food and service there... More

A nice hotel, friendly staff but they suffer from that South American trend of having a lovely chat amongst themselves rather than attending to their guests. When they do pay you attention it is warm and effective. The rooms are lovely but what possesses any one to put glass panels next to the door so at night the room is... More

The stay here was the highlight of our trip to Montevideo. We had one of the standard rooms and yet it certainly didn't feel standard. We got to see other rooms as well and they were all beautiful. The rooftop pool area is amazing. The bar above provides views over the port and city. Breakfast was excellent quality but limited... More

Dear Guest, We very much appreciate your compliments regarding our facilities and the quality of our breakfast. We must apologize for our vegetarian/vegan options being limited at the time of your stay. This is something that we plan to address in the near future with the opening of an on-site restaurant, that will not only serve breakfast but will also... More

First the service is the best. The personal touches like the weather report and welcoming letters with your name on them are fantastic. The rooms are very clean. Very swanky and detailed. Hardwood floors, textured tile in the bathroom. Marbled shower walls.. New TVs, comfortable bedding. Boutique hotel at its finest. Area seems a bit sketch but it's super close... More

Dear Guest, Your words are very kind and as you very well said, the Don is a boutique hotel at its finest. Noteworthy is the fact that the Old City is now an up-and-coming area full of trendy restaurants, shops and art galleries. Long gone are the days when this part of town was unsafe or not suitable for tourists.... More

Private roof top pool all to ourselves . Hotel was spotless. Definitely recommended .

Dear guest, We are so glad to know that you enjoyed your stay right here, at our Hotel. As you explained, the Hotel is well located. We are just at the Front of Mercado del Puerto which is "The Place" if you want to taste the best meats of Uruguay. We are located in the "Old City" so if you... More

We were VERY happy and impressed with this small boutique hotel. The staff were all friendly and always helpful. While we did not need to have English speaking staff, the personnel at reception are fluent for those that need this. Location is great! We arrived around 9pm for a one night stay and full next day to explore the Ciudad... More

Well-designed small hotel in the heart of the Ciudad Vieja, with terrific staff. We were so fortunate to have found this place. It's a short walk from the Buquebus ferry terminal in the port area, and directly across the street from the parilla restaurants in the Mercado del Puerto. Art deco style throughout. Only three floors of rooms, a lovely... More

Best Boutique Hotel in old town Montevideo. Caring staff concerned about your comfort and needs. Although the rooms are small they are appointed nicely. Charming and centrally located to shopping and restaurants. Would stay here again.

A pleasant surprise when entering hotel which was very welcoming and immediately offered a cup of coffee while we waited for our room. The inclusive breakfast was a delight and service good. Our only serious complaint is the extreme noise from a concert facility over the road which on two occasions started at 9pm until about 2 am, this was... More
