Nice mid-size old hotel, with excellent location, in Montevideo old town with a fair price. Great for walking by the old Montevideo. The rooms are basic, with AC and mini fridge, but clean and with individual bathroom. Nice place to stay for the money paid.

The hotel Palacio is a nice mid-size hotel in the middle of old town (about 2 minutes to Plaza Indepencia). Rooms feature mini fridges, AC, and large showers. The rooms are clean and feel comfortable in size. The staff make coffee every morning which is nice if you don't want to wander out every day for a cup. The staff... More

Staff here are helpful and friendly and while very few of them speak English, they do their best to understand. The rooms are basic, clean and each features a small balcony. The location is excellent to access the pedestrian friendly streets, and is close to the Rambla. The airport shuttle will deliver you to this place for $300 UY per... More

For the money you cannot go wrong. The staff is extremely sweet and the accommodations do the trick. We had a room on the 6th floor with a little balcony/deck which was just wonderful. The rooms are old. The location is eh. Some people thought it was a great way to get going in the city and I just didnt... More

The elevator is very old and charming - and that ends the list of nice things in this hotel, except what I put in the title: the satisfaction we had when we could leave! Oh, I have to say that I had a reservation for 3 nights but they allowed to let us go after 1 night when we asked... More

Extremely cozy hotel perfectly located in Montevideo. The staff was really helpful, the room nice and it had a great spacious balcony with a view (room67)! This is amongst the cheapest hotels in the city and it's a real bargain :-) would definently go back.

Classic older small hotel with a great location in the old city. Easy walking distance to just about everywhere. Rooms a little threadbare, but high ceilings and great street views all part of the funky ambience. Worth the stay if only for the elevator. At less than US$ 50 per night for a double, Hotel Palacio is a great bargain,... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Palacio, located just steps away from the main plazas, museums and the Teatro Solis. It's situated in a beautiful building with big, clean rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful in orientating us and helping us figure out our way to the airport via the public bus.

You feel like hundred years ago. Elevator, furniture, bathroom everything is like a museum. Of course you can get more comfirt in some newer hotel but Montevideo is famour for the past and here you are living in the past. Most of the staff are retired people but friendly and smiling. Olga is definitely the best

This is one of the old-school type of hotel that is too rapidly disappearing. Being an old dame, it had quite a bit of patching and some quirkiness, but this was also part of the charm. If anything, aircon would have been nice during the wrmer days. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location perfect where the... More
