Booked this hotel (superior room) for two nights for a great rate through booking.com. Took Uber from the airport to the hotel. Uber has a designated spot for pickup on 2nd floor outside the airport. Was around $19. Reception staff spoke very good English and were helpful with directions. Great natural light in Room 906 with city view. Toiletries consist of bar soap and bulk shampoo, gel and conditioner. Shower only with bidet in bathroom. Recently renovated. Queen comfy bed. No washcloth. Good, free wifi in rooms. Good locations for many of the area's attractions but area is a little seedy (which much of Montevideo appears to be). Included breakfast had many breads, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, wieners, bacon, juices, milk and pastries. Not a huge spread as there are only 65 rooms in hotel but very good. Minibar in room. Club nearby which was noisy on Sunday morning-must have all night clubs? We had an early bus leaving Montevideo that day so we were up anyway. Was less expensive to take a regular taxi to Tres Cruces bus terminal than Uber on Sunday morning so be sure to compare prices. Would stay here again.

This hotel is ideally located to walk to the central (shopping) and old historic parts of the city. It is also a short walk from the coastal "rambla"cycle and promenade. Reasonably priced restaurant / bar and breakfast service - comes with 22% discount if you pay with a non-Uruguayan credit card (as do all restaurant in Uruguay). We had nice big room on an upper floor with views over the Rio de la Plata and the sunset (but only top floor rooms have balcony - you can access the rooftop terrace but there is not much there other than the view). Reception very helpful in organizing visits, taxis and bike hire (these are available on site). Only slight criticism was location of air conditioning in large rooms meant we didn't benefit from it in the sleeping area and, during a very hot spell, this was a problem. Would recommend staying here.

This hotel is great, the staff are exceptional especially the bar staff. All is staff are friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant serve great food although the menu is limited. The staff are knowledgable about the area and offer information on things happening in the area. The room we had was perfect with a fabulous balcony although the lift was a bit noisy but not a big problem. The location is good with only a short walk to the river front in one direction and shops, bars and restaurants in the other.

Smart Hotel is very honest and deliver what they promise. I would give it a 5-star rating if it wasn't for the room cleaning. Three times we came back late afternoon (4-5PM) with our room not cleaned. If they improve this, I'll give it a 5-star rating. Advice to English speaking guests, there is only Spanish speaking TV available. It didn't bother me, the WiFi is very good so I could watch the news on my laptop.

We had an awesome time at the hotel. Since the check in till check out the attention from all the staff was more than expected. They have great accommodations with modern looking. The shower is no doubt the best you can expect. Great internet speed that allowed me to work and watch my favorite series as well. Breakfast very decent with options and if you need to have lunch there you can also find great variety of plates to choose from. Attentive staff they greet you always and if you need anything they will go to get it for you. Truly recommend staying with them.

Loved our stay here, good location, great staff and a nice bar. The staff as a team were excellent, chatty, helpful and always seemed happy. The attached evening/breakfast bar serves great food and wine, and our room with a balcony was just right. Thanks to all.

Upon arrival the hotel receptionist was very courteous and helpful (always a great start), the room was clean and comfortable and very good value for the rate I paid (and Montevideo is not cheap in comparison with Argentina or Brazil).
I used the hotel bar on a couple of occasions and the staff there were also friendly and efficient.
The street the hotel is situated on looks a little run down but it's very close to the centre of the old town, a mere 3 or 4 minutes walk.
I'd be happy to stay here if I ever return to Montevideo.

Staff were all very friendly and helpful. For UY the finish and appearance of the hotel was great. Location was good if you want to be downtown. Windows did not seal well and allowed the constant nighttime party noise in. The floors were not cleaned, even swept, until we asked (Canadians typically don't wear shoes inside so not great for us). Toilet bowl smelled unclean until the floors got cleaned. Sheets were exceptionally over scented but staff quickly changed them when asked. Desk staff VERY helpful and happy to answer any questions regardless of how insignificant or unrelated to their job. Helped these No Español guests in so many ways!

Hello, there is an underground garage just up the street where they direct you to, and there's a small extra charge. I parked there and had no issues, although exiting was a little tricky unless you have someone to watch for pedestrians. I didn't so had to be careful nobody darted in front of the car as I came out.

I am not certain. The hotel does not seem to offer this possibility, but I think that contacting the hotel directly would be your best approach to sort this out. They are very responsive to emails as well.
