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

What a dishonest establishment. We arrived at the Hotel Plaza Fuerte at 1am on a Sunday morning. Upon arrival, we were told that the plumbing in our room had leaked, and that we were to stay in one of their affiliate hotels. What a joke, clearly they had double booked the room. After waiting 2 hours for a cab, we... More

Terrible rooms if you get a loft room. Try for a cnr suite is possible. It is noisy and the condition of the rooms leaves you cold. Its not 4 star at all. I would suggest a different Hotel if in Uruguay.

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
