4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed a whole week in this place. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by a friendly staff ready to help me all the way (which is very Uruguayan by the way). I got my room on the cheap so I wasn't surprised that my room had no view. That was OK. I wasn't there for the view.... More

Well located in a safe and central area of downtown Montevideo, this hotel offers confort without luxury; although the facilites are a bit outdated, everything worked perfectly. Tasty breakfast, polite staff, and a "bargain" price. If you are travelling on a budget but still want some comfort and privacy, this can be an excellent choice.

Hotel reception refused to allow my friend to my room for one drink before dinner. This was 20.00. I was really shocked. If you are a singel traveller dont stay here. I had a long discussion with the hotel reception and they were not helpfull. Wi-fi slow in room.

I stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. I got a good rate when booking this hotel and I found the accommodation was much beyond it's value. The hotel is located along the main avenue of the city and it is easy to walk along the main street to both directions. For the old town, you can either... More

We arrived very late after a long day of travel. The front desk was very nice and welcoming even though it was close to 4am. All we really did was sleep here but it was very clean. Rooms are very small, I could see it being difficult if you were more than one person staying for more than one night...... More

Very nice hotel, well located in the heart of montevideo, near to many tourist spots, next to pharmacies, restaurants, shops and access to other parts of the city. Great breakfast, tasty and varied. It offers free parking. Quiet rooms, perfect to sleep. The hotel keeps a vintage style, for some this may sound like old. For me there! I love... More

It is on a very central location, you can easily walk to the Ciudad Vieja and all you need for food and shops is just around a corner. All the facilities i needed workes perfectly including WiFi in the room. Good breakfast served by a friendly lady... More

Our room was not clean (hairs in the toilet, shower, floor of bathroom), the staff KNOWINGLY put us in a room where the heater was broken (we were there in the fall/winter), the safe was also broken, the front desk staff was rude and very unhelpful as far as tourist information, among other more minor inconveniences (for example, the poor...

The reception/lounge area of this hotel is quite impressive and the staff were really friendly. Maids also really cheerful. Bed was really comfortable. However, that's as far as my compliments go, really. The rooms could have done with a lick of paint and it was absolutely filthy underneath the beds and inside the wardrobes. The lift was missing its door... More
