The best hotel I stayed in Montevideo. Staff does not always speak in English but Portuguese is ok for them. Breakfast is good, but could have more fruits. Dulce de leche is amazing. There is a pool on the terrace but it is a ways so windy that you are probably not using it.

Spent two nights in two separate rooms. The first drank with cigarette smoke, the second room was much better. Fairly dated but comfortable. Polite staff and excellent breakfast. Close to shops and restaurants, and good internet. Avoid rooms near the elevators

We stayed here for a night and were not impressed. The room smelled of smoke, the furnishings were dated, we needed to wear earplugs to sleep because of the street noise. On the plus side, the staff were very helpful, and the rooftop deck and patio have nice views of the sunset. The location is within walking distance of the... More

Checked in here at 9am after a disastrous night at the Lancaster. We were greeted very sympathetically after we explained why we were so early. Given a room which was very comfortable in all respects and the breakfast next morning was good. The additional bonus was a bath - on of the few we encountered on our 3 week trip... More

The rooms STANK. Seems every room is smoking or has been really run down and tired rooms. pretty noisy, we actually opted for this hotel after seeing the small rooms in the hotel california across the road. We paid a reasonable amount, but wouldnt pay more than what we did ($70US double room Superior?!) Would hate to see a standard... More

Spent 5 nights at Embajojador in December 2012. Good location near numerous restaurants, nice front desk personnel. Rooms where good but a significant amount of street noise. Breakfast was enjoyable and satisfying. Gym and pool where not worth mentioning or worth using. I would return to Embajador.

I stayed here from December 3rd until the 7th while attending a Union Conference and was pleased with the hotel. The lobby is spacious and the front desk staff efficient during check-in, despite my rudimentary Spanish. I later noted as most guests did that the wifi in the lobby is better than that experienced in the rooms. There are 3... More

Very good hotel in Montevideo, close to all attractions, good service and breakfast. Rooms for medium size conventions are excellent and comfortable. The restaurant has an international menu as well as local dishes

I recently spent 8 days at the Hotel Embajador while on a business trip to Montevideo. The hotel is nicely located in downtown Montevideo, and the street 18th of July is only 1 block away, and is a major hub with lots of shops and places to eat within easy walking distance. The Wi-fi in my 6th floor room worked... More

The hotel's location is in central Montevideo, which has seen better days. So has this hotel. The staff is very helpful and nice, and that does compensate for some of the hotel's shortcomings. The construction is old and attempts at renovating/upgrading the facilities have been half-hearted at best. And its advertised as a 4 star hotel. No way! More like... More
