The hotel has a good location. It is about 4 blocs of the Artigas monument, at the heart of Montevideo. The personel is nice, but some of the things of the hotel are old and not renewed, like the bath tube that has no tamp for the sink. But the room are nice.

It was my first time in Montevideo, so I'm not able to compare with other hotels, but I can at least tell what my impression is about this place. And it is not good! The Lafayette hotel is well located, about 2 blocks away from the main street of Montevideo center (Avenida 18 de Julio) and about 15 minutes walk... More

Nice hotel, centrally located, near the old city, shops etc etc. Nice and spacious rooms, indoor pool with a bit too much chloro. Sufficient gym and sauna. Nothing fancy but ok. Very poor wifi. Good breakfast. Very friendly staff.

Because it was the birthday of my boyfriend we decided to book a nice hotel forour two days in Montevideo. Photos that the hotel it self had posted looked good so we went for it. We arrived in the afternoon and checked in, that went pretty fast compared to South America, around 10-15 minutes. Then we got to our room.... More

Staff is very friendly, welcoming and willing to help at any time. The girls from the kitchen are also amazing. However the hotel is way too old and it needs refurbishment urgently. The bathroom is terrible and dark and it makes it look dirty although it was not; the bed is comfortable and the sheets are clean and soft. The... More

I did not find that hotels in Montevideo are reasonably priced, for what you get. I thought it would be better given what I paid. This hotel is old, has a 70s feel, with lots of mirrors in the lobby. I loved the breakfast included in the price though. I would recommend this hotel for that reason. There was a... More

It is a little old but a nice and friendly hotel. The location is near the town center so everything is in a walkeble distance. If you are lucky you can use the hotels garage frre of charge. For the price we paid very good.

The hotel is placed very near the downtown and the City Hall. The heating system in the room is not the best but does the work. Breakfast is good with nice breads. Unfortunately there is no restaurant in the hotel but there are some around. The hotel has a cafeteria that provides pizza and snacks. The people is nice and... More
