Centrally located around the corner from plaza Independencia and the old town (mercado Del Puerto) is within walking distance, decent breakfast and helpful staff. Probably could do with fixing or replacing a few items in the rooms but for the price you'll be just fine.

This hotel has working walls and floors. The bathroom contains water. The breakfast is made of edible food. The elevators were not on fire. However the electrical sockets in our room were frankly dangerous and the air-con didn't work and there was a bunch of mould on stuff. Having said that it was *really* inexpensive, so I guess you get...

This is a good hotel if you are willing to keep on a budget. There are no luxuries there, but you find a clean and cozy environment. The breakfast is simple, but good. There is free wifi, even at the room, which is not so common. Personal helpful and willing to keep it everything clean. There is a fridge inside...

I booked the hotel for a 5 day stay and had to leave after day 2. The room had mold on the window frame, shower didn't work, very old mattresses. The room was tiny... Impossible for 3 person. The breakfast( suppose to be included) had no cups, plates and almost no food left by the time we arrived. Talked to...

I stayed at Urban Express when traveling Montevideo with my sister and her baby and found that stay quite good for what you pay. The rooms were clean, the breakfast good and the staff was friendly. Also it was no problem being there with the baby.

They advertise airport shuttle service. There is NO airport shuttle service. It is a bald faced lie. They call a taxi for you the same as you can get anyplace!!! The lobby and eating area looks nice, and then you get to your room that has all the ambiance of a jail cell. The double bed is actually two twin...

Hotel is the cheapest for the general area. Centrally located. Rooms are clean but small. Staff is helpful. Breakfast was good. For the budget traveller this is a good choice in this section of Montevideo.

Arrived New Year's Day and reception were very helpful (the only time) second individual on reception was more interested in viewing his Facebook page on the reception computer! Rooms very basic (as anticipated) but much more worn and had the feeling of student accommodation. Breakfast also basic with a game of musical chairs - not enough seating for the numbers...

I stayed in this place for couple of days this August (2014). The hotel is centraly located close to the main square, about ten minutes taxi ride from Tres Cruzes Bus Terminal. Rooms are generaly clean with helpful stuff at the reception. Breakfast is served near the lobby (a good way to sip a coffee and watch people passing by)....
