NH Montevideo Columbia
Ranked #41 of 87 Hotels in Montevideo
Reviewed March 2, 2014

We had a very brief trip to Montevideo at the beginning of February 2014. The hotel has a great view across the Riverside. Rooms are spacious and well-furnished. The hotel is in a handy location to get to the port and the old town, although not the best area at night. Saying that, we had no problems and visited a few of the bars in the area which appeared to be popular with the locals.
Wifi access was good throughout the hotel, and the breakfast was a decent spread, both included in the rate, so good value. Overall very happy with the stay.
What made the stay very good was the friendliness and helpfulness of the front desk staff.
(Please extend our thanks to them, Boris and colleagues. You made some very helpful suggestions of places to visit as a tourist and filled our few days with some great things to do in Montevideo).

Room Tip: If you can, get a River View room.

We (family of four) stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in Febuary 2014. The location of the hotel is good -especially if you like to go for a run in the evenings or mornings along Las Ramblas because you just need to cross the road to get there. Also, it's only a few blocks away from Sarandi (pedestrian shopping street) and about 5 minutes walk from Plaza Independencia. The hotel itself is a little old and smelt a bit odd (mouldy??) But our room had a separate bedroom for the kids and was clean and comfortable. Window looked out on the street and not the water, but that wasn't so bad because there was a carnival (practise?) parade that went past one evening which was great to see. Breakfasts were good and friendly staff. The kids enjoyed the hot spa on the roof.

This was a very good hotel. They had a good breakfast which was included, the prices are very fair and they offer free wifi and parking. The room was very spacious, the exercise room is a bit sparse. The location -- although it is across from the river with beautiful views -- I felt it was a little removed from the city center -- its only a ten minute walk away BUT the surroundings are a little dicey. It didn't bother me but I can see how that may bother others. That being said -- I would recommend staying there and would probably stay there again. They also store luggage for free if your flight is in the evening! Staff speak excellent English and are very helpful.

Older NH in centro right next to water front. This is not a beach hotel and the immediate neighbourhood does not have any nightlife, shopping or restaurants. In walking distance to centro food and bars though. Quiet and mostly safe at night. Main issue with property is age and need of renovation, especially public areas like lobby, elevators, gym, hallways. Room was aged but functional and clean. Considering this property is charging maybe 1/3 of the nearby Radisson which is also badly in need of renovation, the NH is a much better deal. Decent breakfast spread, very sad gym.

Hotel was convenient because of its proximity to my office and is clean but is getting very dated and tired looking. Staff are very friendly. Helpful especially for a non Spanish speaking person. Convenient.

In general the hotel is great. The common areas are clean, well decorated, the air conditioner was perfect. The staff was very kind and helpful, especially the bar staff. About the room, we stayed in a large and clean room, with a great view to the rambla, the internet connection (wifi) was very fast. Breakfast was ok. Location just fine. I"ll would definitely recommend this hotel and i"d come back here.

Tip: in Uruguay, MasterCard is not accepted neither in the hotel, as for other places. Use Visa or cash.
