We choose this hotel for being located in the heart of Montevideos Old City, we did not expected five stars conditions (not even four stars) but unfortunately we were at the beginning quite schoked and afterwords only disappointed. The building is charming from outside with old arquitecture, balconies and sculpted facade, but showing poor mentaining. It still mentains it's charm... More

The hotel is on a good location, just in the Montevideo old town center. During the day the neighbourhood is full of people, but at night is quite empty. My bedroom, in the 4th floor, was big but it seemed dirty with carpet with lots of stains. Breakfast was ok. Good restaurantes around it.

The rooms are badly preserved and the treatment is terrible. One night the weather changed and it got really cold so I asked for a blanket and they didn't give me one until next day. I had to wear socks and sweater to go through the night! It's a pity cause the building is beautiful and the breakfast is great.

Excellent small hotel with two story suites.very well located within ciudad Vierja. Unfortunately the neighborhood at night is not so good. The rooms lack some maintenance: the bathroom door would not lock and the coffee table was broken in certain parts. The breakfast was very good and complete. However, they did not seem as if they were going to replace... More

I very rarely give truly negative reviews but I have to say this is one of the most unpleasant hotelsI I have ever stayed in given it is billed as a 4 star. But for the friendly staff (especially the night guy Nicolas) I would have left after just one of my two nights here. As it was I was... More

I cannot review the place since due to an overbooking (they blamed it on Booking.com) I didn't get the suite I booked. Nonethless I want to aknowledge the helpfulness and problem solving skills of Nicholas, the fantastic receptionist. The town was fully booked and he was aware he couldn't get me a room anywhere else, so he offered me a... More

My experience in Plaza fuerte was quite awful and definitely does not worth what I paid for. Pros: Service was good and they helped me out when I needed a Plug adapter for my laptop. That's the only reason to add another star to the rating. Cons: - Bed in horrible shape, very uncomfortable to sleep. replace it ASAP as... More

This has been my go to hotel in Montevideo. I have stayed there many times. This time I had a lousy room and was very disappointed. Not at all up to their usual standards. I don't think I will stay there again any time soon. There are other hotels which have better rooms, better breakfasts for a better price. So... More
