My husband picked out this hotel for a birthday weekend in Montevideo. It's kind of got that masculine touch, you know? We had an absolute fabulous time! We had one of the front rooms with the balcony so we could look straight over to the big market - and eat there too! The room was very nice. It was spacious, streamlined and clean. The jacuzzi was a great end to the day.
The building's art deco look is complimented in the details all over, down to the little soap bottles. They did a wonderful job in the planning. The best part was the roof pool! I've not had such a lovely, relaxing afternoon in quite some time. It is so peaceful up there, I would come back just to sit on that roof all weekend. The front part of the roof had a cool little bar and some lounge furniture that offered a nice space to have a cocktail!
The staff was absolutely wonderful! When we asked if we could check our bags until we were allowed to check in, they said our room was ready and we could go early if we wanted. It made all the difference in the world! We had a very long night of travel the night before so a quick morning nap made our entire day in the city much better.
Breakfast was really varied, full of lots of different options, and way too much to eat. It was much better than the standard ham, cheese and bread I see at most places. I think I recall that it came out in courses and was sculpted in interesting shapes.
Highly recommended! We look forward to returning!
