I stayed in Casa Sarandi for two nights in September 2013. I cannot say enough good things about this accommodation.
The apartment was pretty, perfectly clean and very well kept. It is well located at the edge of the old town and close to the nice shopping street. There are good amenities on the same street as the apartment - corner shop, pharmacy, etc.
My room was beautiful & very cosy and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom and shower facilties were perfect. I rarely feel at home in hotel/B&B accommodation but Casa Sarandi was different. Because the room was so comfortable, I found it hard to get moving to see the sights on occasion!
I met Karen on arrival and her welcome & willingness to help was exceptional. I am quite well travelled and it is rare that I have come across this type of welcome. Karen was more than willing to help in any way she could.
In my view, Montevideo is underexposed to the tourist circuit and this is part of the reason why I enjoyed my short stay. Karen's tips on what to see and do were critical for me in getting the most out of my trip. I had the pleasure of being Karen's first Irish visitor - I now hope that I can convince many more to follow me.
Thank you, Karen, for making Montevideo a highlight of my South America adventure. I wish we had more time to chat during my stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Sarandi is a 1930s style art-deco guesthouse and loft in the heart of Montevideo's Old City - the Ciudad Vieja in Spanish. The guesthouse is a block from the Colonial Square and the Cathedral and two blocks from Uruguay's premier theatre, the Solis and from the rambla - a 25-km long promenade, great for biking and running. The owners Karen and Sergio have lived in Montevideo since 2000, love the city and the national music scene and will help make your stay unique with their daily recommendations -most of which are walking distance-- for things to do, places to go, the most unusual places to eat and drink and the most interesting music and culture Montevideo should be more famous for. Karen runs Guru'Guay, a much-visited website on Uruguay, and now author of a best-selling guidebook "The Guru'Guay Guide to Montevideo". The guest house is very intimate - just two guest rooms. Both rooms have hardwood floors, antique furnishings and original art. Besides your guest room and private bathroom, Casa Sarandi offers a cosy living room and a fully-equipped modern kitchen. ... more less
