This hotel is located just off the main street in the centre of town. The staff is friendly , helpful and speaks english well. The roos average size and clean . Breakfast a bit of a crowded affair as the breakfast room quite small but breakfast was good.

It's centrally located, the room was clean and it had a parking garage (1 block away), where we left the car while walking around during the day. After the simple but nice breakfast, we went to Avenida 18 de Julio (just on the corner), and from there you can walk to the Mercado Viejo, a must see. Would definitely stay... More

This hotel is currently being renovated. My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks in 2013 visiting her family and just returned from another two week stay. The hotel was being renovated back in 2013 as well. Construction in this country moves at a snails pace. The banging starts at 7 am sharp, so if you forgot to set... More

Hotel America is an old hotel which has been given some TLC. Location is perfect for everything you need for a city stay, you are in the very centre.! And for the price paid this is a good option indeed. I was in a room on the 7th floor, serviced by jumping elevators, room was nice in size, clean and... More

Booked this hotel for my mother who was born in Montevideo. She arrived with her friend and despite the previous front desk clerk advising he would take care and park the car (carpark 3 blocks away), the person who served her said he would not do such a thing. It was freezing and her friend parked the car and returned.... More

The hotel offers good value for money, as it is located very central and breakfast, which was good, is included. Bad was the fact that our rooms weren't done when we arrived and that front desk didn't tell us but just sent us to the room. Only when we told the cleaning lady that there was waste left she told...
