“Good choice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Nice, clean, very good choice. Near the "Rambla", look the river in the morning is wonderful. There are parking at three blocks, but doesn't matter in our trip. Nice, I come back, sure.

Hotel is old but our room was very clean

We had a great view of the sea

Service was perfect and let us check out at noon instead of 11pm.

Breakfast though was the best part: buffet, unlimited an good

Can fault the location near the beach in Pocitos. Excellent choice if you are a first time visitor to Montevideo as the area is really nice and safe, a minute from the Ramblas, but within easy access to the city centre (bus stop outside the hotel). Choose a sea view room, you'll have the bestview. Staff slightly aloof but that's not a great problem. Breakfast very good. Would definately go back if I return to Montevideo.

Perfect location. The room was really clean, quiet and comfortable. It was hard leaving bed in the morning… It also had a nice view of the rambla. Only pillows could be much better. The breakfast was simple, but ok. The staff could be a little more friendly. But I’d definitely recommend this hotel.

We (3 adults) stayed 3 nights during October 2011. The room 503 was composed by 2 rooms (one with 2 beds and the other one with 2 single beds), a nice balcony. The daily rate is fair (USD 135 per night for a triple room) with breakfast included. All the person of the reception were outstanding and very attentious.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

The Hotel Ermitage is a 1950s high-rise hotel that could use a deep clean and renovation. Our room definitely smelled like smoke had permeated it for many years, and the furnishings were pretty worn. You're really better off skipping the breakfast buffet.

But for all that, it's not so bad. Our room had a nice sea view, and a new flat-screen TV that worked well. The location is nice, close to the beach, some nice restaurants and the mall. Overall, a totally middle-of-the-road old hotel experience, and a decent, if not great, option in Montevideo.
