I flew to Montevideo the third week of August and booked Hotel Alvear online, I thought for three days, but ended up having to stay in town until after Labor Day, and kept adding one or two more days during my first week. Altogether, I stayed for two weeks. Having family in Montevideo, this is my second hotel stay in... More

The Alvear Hotel is conveniently located near the main shopping street, close to shops and restaurants, and within walking distance of the old town. The area is safe with shady parks nearby to relax in. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Staff are helpful and friendly.

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and central area of downtown Montevideo, this hotel offers confort without luxury; although the facilites are a bit outdated, everything worked perfectly.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.

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.

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...
