The hotel is in an old art nouveau building, but whith renovated rooms in modern style. The antique elevator is beautiful and still working well! We had a spacious corner room whith five high windows, and a nice bathroom. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is good. We will defenately recomand this hotel!

Stayed here for three nights in duplex suite, which had sleeping area and bathroom upstairs. Location is perfect, right in the middle of old town. Building is old and pretty, elevator is so cool :). Bar on the roof isn't open anymore, but it's still worth the visit if they let you go there. Room was a bit dated, but... More

This hotel photographed well on its website and the corridors and elevator (very old) in the hotel are nice indeed. The rest is abominable. The rooms (classified as superior!) are not only dilapidated and ugly but they are also dangerous. They have a staircase which leads to a sleeping area - the staircase is steep and has no railing and... More

Good location, clean, atmospheric and value for money. Most of all, I appreciated the honesty. My wife forgot two expensive diamond rings in the bathroom, but thanks to their honesty we were able to collect them later. I would suggest them for their great service.

We made a reservation through trip advisor and even though they had our printed reservation at the front desk, they said they had no rooms for us and switched us to the Hotel Lancaster which is a TERRIBLE 1 star hotel. No warning or contact. A convention was in town, hotel prices had increased from $160 to $600 everywhere else.... More

The hotel is very, very well located in the old part of town and its on a road that turns pedestrian only at night, which can cause some trouble to get there. It is very close to many restaurants and pubs. The hotel itself is famous and has an interesting historical architecture, the rooms were redesigned in a loft fashion... More

Neat building, especially the elevator. The remodel was cheap and ill-planned. they could've saved money on the awkward loft addition and bought bigger and better quality beds and linens. Rooms are clean and a bit stuffy, but that's an old building for you. Bed is a double, with firm and squeaky mattress and no box spring/support. Opt for a higher... More

We stayed there for three nights with family. The location is perfect. It is in the center of the old city, and near to everything. All tour trips start from this area. Many restaurants near by and just 5 mins walk to Mercado Del Puerto. The hotel itself maintains the historic architecture. The lift was around 100+ years old as... More

The best thing Hotel Plaza Fuerte has going for it is its location in the heart of the historic district of Montevideo. There's not a whole lot to see in Uruguay's main city, so we figured we might as well spend our two nights in the center of things. That proved to be a smart move as we were steps... More

Boutique hotel in the middle of the old town. Friendly reception who spoke English. Very helpful although I wouldn't take their tours they are much more expensive than taking the bus to for example Puente del Este or Colonia del Sacramento. The room was very clean and neat. Divided over 2 floors, they made a new floor into a room... More
