Excellent service, the hosts were very accommodating and let us store our bags for the day after checkout. No frills, but it had good hot water and water pressure, and they provided us with a spare charger because we had forgot ours. At night you can walk to the water and see the parades - great spot!

We were treated extremely well by the staff . Although our spanish is terribly limited we had a good many laughs with the hotel staff as we endeavoured to make ourselves understood . Our room was clean , cool , and with no shortage of hot water . The bed was muy bien . This hotel is easily within walking distance of the Rambla , the old city , and great restaurants. The neighbourhood safe , friendly ( a characteristic of the Uruguay people ) and charming . Next door is a period bar with excellent food , the Montevideo al Sur . Be certain to drop by for a meal , the place is steeped in history ! Also , stop into the Bar 36 where we had two excellent meals . Just a short walk down Maldonado towards old town . Enjoy

SUR is located in an older building in an older neighborhood. In Montevideo, the old city is more a description than location. SUR has a hostel feel about it. The hotel met our expectations & suited all our needs. We were boarding the Buquebus ferry to Buenos Aires so the location worked well. A few blocks from the Rambla. The staff was very friendly & helpful. My daughters are fairly fluent Spanish speakers, which was needed. The room was okay, if a bit rough. Clean & cozy. No elevator. All in all, stay for the price & if you need the location.

We first started staying at this great hotel in 2001 and we make sure to stay at the Sur Hotel every time we visit Uruguay. We have stayed as both a family and as a couple while visiting. The hotel is very clean and safe and has everything you need. It is close to all of the local attractions. We love the attention to all of the little details and architecture. Every time we have visited the hotel we have noticed new updates or changes that have been made to improve your experience at the hotel. The service and the staff is excellent and they treat you like family. The staff and owners has always been very helpful with any special requests that we have had in the past. These requests have ranged from transportation to the airport or other locations such as Piriapolis. They also have assisted with transportation and accommodations to and from Argentina for our family. When we have needed a recommendation for a restaurant the choices have always been excellent. Once again a real great place to stay while visiting Uruguay and especially Montevideo. We always look forward to our stay at the Sur Hotel in Montevideo.

If you like small but quaint places, this is for you. This is not a chain! It has its character. The place is decorated with black and white photos, most of the history of Montevideo. We rented 3 rooms because we were three families (9 total). The owner and concierge were very friendly. The place is immaculately kept with every room having its own theme and color while all blending together to keep to the overall decorative theme. Nearby (a few blocks) you can walk to several restaurants or cafes. It is also only a few blocks to the beach. Breakfast costs $6 US and is not usually included but worth it. Montevideo is more expensive than we anticipated and this breakfast was much more affordable than getting one out (unless you want a treat with cakes and such). The place is well taken care of. Bathrooms are smaller but that is the usual in hotels in South America. There is plenty of hot water and pressure (if you have traveled, you know why I write this). Overall, we were very pleased!!! We would highly recommend this hotel, and will return when possible!
