I arrived happy to Montevideo for a vacation. I was charged 20.00 dollars for early arrival at 8 am (no receipt issued). In the first hour I was lead to a room that had the elevator motor noise and hammering as they said was due to a construction in the next building. Five times, all before 9 am, I was... More

The hotel is in a very good location, in the main avenue of the city and a 10 minute walk from Plaza Independencia, the Rambla and the old city center. Price was also very reasonable and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good, but not much variety.

If youre looking for excellent location, for a good price, this is the place. At the center of town, and on the main street of the city, it puts you 5 minutrs from Independence sq ( walking), 5 minutes from the main bus station ( taxi), and 5 minutes from the riverside beaches ( walking). Services i tried here were... More

Although simple and small, the hotel has the essential a guest needs. It is clean, breakfast is good, the location is excellent. The only problem is that you can't have a meal in the hotel. They offer some snacks or drinks only. Another problem is that there is no leisure area. No fitness center, no swimming pool. I recommend for... More

This is definitely a budget hotel. If you expect that and not four starts, you should be good to go. I found the front staff rather helpful. There's usually at least one person who speaks English and they were helpful when I had questions. The hotel is in a good location in terms having accessibility to shops, the beach line... More

When you walk in to the hotel you may consider that you are in a palace, but that impression soon leaves as soon as you get to your room. Don't get me wrong, it's clean and has all the necessary facilities, but the rooms don't match the lobby. The breakfast wasn't great but overall it was ok.

It was really horrible but the worst smell came form the bathroom plumbing the odour was really awful. It was like bad sewerage made you gag!!! We only... More

Unhelpful and umpolite staff, good location and average acomodations are assembled. My bedroon was very smelly. I cannot stand hotels who nowadays still allow costumers to smoke inside the bedrooms. That's disgusting! I complained and what was done was to spray a strong perfum in my bedroom. Never again! I strongly donnot recommend!!
