Stayed 2 nights 23-24 October of 3, before an Antarctic voyage. Beautiful late 19th C building restored and restyled to keep much of its past style intact. Lovely public spaces, with nice but smallish ground/basement indoor pool/gym/spa area towards the rear. Fantastic city skyline and ocean views from the spacious rooftop breakfast room and a nicely comprehensive breakfast offering. Just... More

The hotel sits in a downtown street of Montevideo a couple blocks away from the main avenue and main square of the City. It is a modernized old theatre turned into hotel. The hotel is very good, ample common areas, the bedroom was of the perfect size, good modern bathroom. The hotel had a swimming pool and a small exercise... More

It is a cosy hotel, extremely friendly staff, excellent location, in the middle between the old city and the shopping area, walking distance from everywhere, the rooms are clean and nicely designed, price is excellent for what you get. Breakfast is ok, they serve the basics.

I was very pleased with my stay. Managment staff is excellent, rooms are big, clean and luxiorious. Location very near historical old city centre is amazing, so I recommend this place for staying if you are in Montevideo. Prices are high, but you would pay more for this type of hotel in Europe. Right next to the hotel there is... More

To start with the pros: the hotel is in a decent location, near the Ciudad Viejo and Av. 18 de Julio. Also, the rooms are fairly comfortable and the staff were friendly. My chief complaint (and an important one, given that most people book hotel rooms to sleep in them) is that there was some sort of nighttime dance party... More

I really liked the hotel, the staff was great with dinning tips from the area, the only thing that they may improve is to have available more power adapters for another countries' electrical appliances.
