Close to Plaza Independence this is a good location in an area of Montevideo that has plenty of character. The lift dates back to 1913 and the rooms have 4-5 metre ceilings.
The modernized duplex rooms with a the bed and bathroom upstairs have appeal even though the shower is a little bit small for some. The beds are comfortable and the reception service helpful. You get all the extras you would from a mainstream hotel (shampoo, shower gel, tissues, hairdryer, and bathrobes – for midgets).
The room had a cute balcony overlooking the street and the dining room upstairs has good views. At night the area was quite and we weren’t disturbed by the traffic or bars and restaurants nearby.
They probably need to get the house maids to give a bit more attention to cleaning and room presentation. Also keeping things maintained. Our upstairs Cable TV didn’t work despite a request for them to fix it (but not a big deal as the downstairs one worked fine), and a number of the recessed lights didn’t work.
