Great location along the Rambla and a few blocks from the old center of Montevideo and the traditional public market with its typical restaurants. 15 minuts walking from the Solis theater and some museums. The hotel accommodations are good, spacious with a fantastic view of the river (rooms located on the front), good mattresses, sheets and towels. A good cost... More

This hotel was not in an área which was safe to walk at night. Bathroom was in bad need of an up date as well as the elevators and carpet in the hall área. I checked into a different hotel in a better location, cleaner and about 45 USD less.

staff is very nice, arranged early check-in for me (arrive quite early as my BA flight had to land in montevideo :-) with no problems and no fee, and was very helpful anytime. the hotel as such - lift, furniture, painting on the walls, bathrooms, and even the floor tiles full of cracks - would need a lot of reconstruction...

Place is looking worse for wear, rooms a run down, sat on a chair which was broken in our room, pillows aren't in best condition, booked a queen bed and got a twin single, nothing they could do they said at reception. Only good thing is location. The people behind the desk a rude too.

We had a very brief trip to Montevideo at the beginning of February 2014. The hotel has a great view across the Riverside. Rooms are spacious and well-furnished. The hotel is in a handy location to get to the port and the old town, although not the best area at night. Saying that, we had no problems and visited a... More

We (family of four) stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in Febuary 2014. The location of the hotel is good -especially if you like to go for a run in the evenings or mornings along Las Ramblas because you just need to cross the road to get there. Also, it's only a few blocks away from Sarandi (pedestrian shopping... More

This was a very good hotel. They had a good breakfast which was included, the prices are very fair and they offer free wifi and parking. The room was very spacious, the exercise room is a bit sparse. The location -- although it is across from the river with beautiful views -- I felt it was a little removed from... More

Older NH in centro right next to water front. This is not a beach hotel and the immediate neighbourhood does not have any nightlife, shopping or restaurants. In walking distance to centro food and bars though. Quiet and mostly safe at night. Main issue with property is age and need of renovation, especially public areas like lobby, elevators, gym, hallways.... More
