We arrived very late after a long day of travel. The front desk was very nice and welcoming even though it was close to 4am. All we really did was sleep here but it was very clean. Rooms are very small, I could see it being difficult if you were more than one person staying for more than one night...... More

Very nice hotel, well located in the heart of montevideo, near to many tourist spots, next to pharmacies, restaurants, shops and access to other parts of the city. Great breakfast, tasty and varied. It offers free parking. Quiet rooms, perfect to sleep. The hotel keeps a vintage style, for some this may sound like old. For me there! I love... More

This is an old hotel in one of the soulfull streets of Montevideo. It is on a very central location, you can easily walk to the Ciudad Vieja and all you need for food and shops is just around a corner. All the facilities i needed workes perfectly including WiFi in the room. Good breakfast served by a friendly lady... More

Our room was not clean (hairs in the toilet, shower, floor of bathroom), the staff KNOWINGLY put us in a room where the heater was broken (we were there in the fall/winter), the safe was also broken, the front desk staff was rude and very unhelpful as far as tourist information, among other more minor inconveniences (for example, the poor...

The staff were helpful and friendly, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the air con worked. The... More

The reception/lounge area of this hotel is quite impressive and the staff were really friendly. Maids also really cheerful. Bed was really comfortable. However, that's as far as my compliments go, really. The rooms could have done with a lick of paint and it was absolutely filthy underneath the beds and inside the wardrobes. The lift was missing its door... More

Location was pretty good with good restaurants nearby. The room was a bit dirty, dusty under the bed, old. They use their sprays everywhere to make the place 'richer', but they just make me sick. Breakfast is decent as well.

I stayed at this hotel in Montevideo and my first surprise was the door key. It was an old designed key like from the 30's!!!! A big uncomfortable piece of wood or plastic as a key ring. The room was very tiny and the breakfast was canned fruit. Very good location but you can have any other good options nearby.... More

My stay in Montevideo would be for only two days and chose this hotel by location (central). This hotel is one block of 18 of Julio Avenue, one of major streets in Montevideo. Is it possible to go on foot to the old center or other tourist spots of the city. The hotel parking (24 hs) is located half a... More
