Reading all the reviews posted about this place really brings home how we all have different things we are looking for. Yes, as other reviewers say the hotel could use some updating and a little TLC around the edges. But my room was absolutely clean and quite pleasant to pass the time in, in between activities. (All of central Montevideo seems to suffer from some neglect.) Yes, there were some homeless people sleeping in the streets nearby but that is part of inner city life anywhere. I passed some today in many different parts of Buenos Aires. I can't understand complaints about the breakfasts though. I've been traveling for three months in South America and the Lafayette's breakfasts are at the top of my list - fresh fruits, both whole and cut up in fruit salad; whole wheat bread as well as the standard white bread; crackers; rolls; several types of fruit juice; several types of meat; cheese; scrambled eggs; bacon; licuados; hot chocolate; pastries - I'm no doubt leaving something out but all of these things were replenished as they were used up. There was a toaster for those who wanted and they even started at 7 am rather than the 8 or even 9 that I've been encountering most everywhere else. I can see that the breakfast room might be a little tight if the hotel was full and everyone was eating at the same time. The laundry service was overpriced but not 20 meters away was one of many laundry services in the area that were not. The wifi was slow but it worked in the rooms and was free. My bed was very comfortable and the reception staff were very helpful. I prefer small places but all in all, I think the Lafayette does a great job. Oh, I forgot to say, I never felt at all unsafe coming back to the hotel at night. I'd stay there again if I were to return to Montevideo.
