We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour around South America. Usually I would Not choose to stay in a hotel like this but didn't have much choice but it confirmed my reasons as to generally never staying in less than a 4*. The hotel is really old and outdated with the ugliest bathroom. The room was... More

Myself and two friends went to Uruguay for three days and this hotel was completely suitable for our needs. It's right on one of the main roads so super convenient if you plan on touring the central area - a lot of the main sites are actually walking distance (palace and the river were both only a half an hour...

This hotel is in a great location in central Montevideo but be aware it is cheap and likely because it has not been renovated in quite some time The room carpet was a bit nasty with a stain we avoided but the bed was clean as was the washroom. It is a simple place to stay but not for those... More

Dont get turned off by the slightly run down exterior or lobby. Yes, the management really needs to spend a bit of money changing rugs, painting walls in the lobby and hallways. But if you can deal with this, I think that you will enjoy your time at this place. We spent two nights there and thought it was a... More

I booked a room for a night at the Austral through hotel.com and when I arrived they could not find my reservation. They later on said my reservation was at the Lancaster which was just a block away. The room was terrible. It has not been painted in years and there were holes in the walls. The room was dirty... More

Of the approximately 100 hotel reviews, I have done on Trip Advisor, this is the first time I have issued this advice. My own fault - I ignored the older reviews and took the recent good review as a sign things had changed. Lobby carpet was filthy. The classic room we had booked online was "unavailable", so were given a... More

I spent over 2 weeks at the Lancaster Hotel in May this year. I had a back room in the 7th floor, no noise and it was clean, towels replaced everyday if requested, the shower was great, and the breakfast run from 7.00am to 11.00am and offered an assortment of breads, cheeses, a diversity of cold meat, jams, local pattiesserie,...

Bathroom was ugly and not properly cleaned. Room was ugly, but not in the extremely dirty end. TV was small. Decoration... do they even know that we are not in 1940? Breakfast options... well...

I had no choice but to stay at this hotel for 2 nights as the tour company booked it. Just believe all the negative comments. It is terrible. Worst than I could imagine! Don't let the lobby fool you. The rooms are the 60s without any maintenance. Just awful

The place looked okay on the outside and situated in a beautiful square, but once inside it wasn't great. When I got the room key from the desk clerk he warned me not to jump....wasn't sure why until I got to the room. The room was dirty, bathroom was old with poor plumbing and the window with a beautiful view... More
