I spent 3 nights here in a single room with a shared bath. Everything seemed really clean, if not a touch on the old side. My room had a sink in it, which was nice, and towels and soap are provided. Location is excellent-- right between Plaza Constitucion and Plaza Independencia, and off Sarandi, which is a pedestrian only street lined with shops, bars, and restaurants. Bought earplugs after the first night, but I should have known I would need these given the location. Hotel staff is really friendly-- provided me with some plug adaptors to use during the entirety of my stay.

We stayed a week here and it was very nice. It is old and delightful. Everyone is helpful and friendly. Big rooms and great coffee. The only negatives is that it is noisy on one side, so maybe ask for a room on Bacacay Street side. Dont let this stop you though, it is a great place in Montevideo.

Once probably a very fine hotel, now looking and feeling very worn about the edges. The location is perfect, just across from Teatre Solis in the middle of a pedestrianised area. The lower floor on one side is a very noisy night spot. Don't accept a room above this area. My room had three single beds and a bathroom so small the handbasin was actually in the shower recess. A TV showed three local channels. There was a tiny balcony with an excellent sideways view of the Teatre Solis. The room had a heater which only worked after wiggling the lead (!)

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pedestrianised street to avoid the very noisy night spot at street level

Old building, interesting characters. Clean, good views, over top a street that got very busy on Saturday night, but quiet other nights.

Splendido was a great place to stay, albeit in a really old building. The location is unbeatable, the staff friendly and the rooms, well, antiquated but clean.

Note. The rating is based on it being what it is not comparing it to the Marriott.

The building and the furniture are really old.
The staff were very helpful.
The room was clean.
Actually it's a hostel with private rooms with bathrooms.
The sound from the street was very loud even with my room turned to the Bacacay St. Take your earplugs with you.

We spend 3 nights at the Splendido Hostel the beginning of tis year.
We really loved the place. It's word a recommendation, go for it if you visit Montevideo!
The staff is more than friendly, very helpfull and full of ideas.
The building is beautiful, old heigh ceilingbuilding with a retro-atomosphere made by the hosts.
Extra for us: We had a beautiful room with a view....the Teatro Solis was our neighbour on the other side of the road!
Location is very good also; in centre of Ciudad Viejo and close to the ramblas and the seaside.
Tip: rent a bike and go cycling on the ramblas along the seaside and visit some nice beaches more in the outskirts of Montevideo. The hostel has bikes for rent also!

Room Tip: Ask for ours, the one with the view on Teatro Solis. Sunny and big! A double with matrimonal and s...
