“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

This hotel is wonderfully oriented around the needs of its guests, and we loved it. We arrived at 6am, exhausted after a difficult all-night flight from Mexico City and fearing that we would not be able to check in until 3pm (as is usual around the world). However, the night clerk gave us the keys as if it were perfectly normal to enter at 6am. We were able to bath and catch a couple hours of sleep before visiting Montevideo, which is well worth the effort of getting there. When we returned to our room in the afternoon, it was completely made up. The hotel is located well: close to the old town and and walking street. I recommend this hotel -- and Montevideo -- highly.

I spent one night at this hotel before moving to the NH Columbia for a meeting. Axsur was a pleasant surprise - brand new, and really still has to develop a personality of its own. The reception area is deceptively un-ostentatious, but overall, the property is clean, and the rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Comfortable beds, nice big, fluffy bath towels. The service was also very good in deed. The modest continental breakfast was well laid out and it was certainly adequate.

I was impressed by the hotel: clean and big rooms, everyting seems to be new.... Breakfast is good, it lacks some things,it surprises you with other things...
The view is really nice, you wake up viewing the River.
The only drawback is the location: Ciudad Vieja seems empty at night, not so many options to have dinner (at a walking distance). However, a short cab ride solves the problem.
Comparing to similar hotels in the area, Axsur seems to offer the best price-value relationship.
I would return, no doubt about it.

This new hotel is directly behind the NH Hotel where we stayed in 2008 but which is now over-priced at $130 and anyway seems to get some bad reviews.

The rooms are much more impressive than the very modest reception area, which is quite the opposite approach for S.America. By paying cash (USD92) we were upgraded to a lovely big room with "kitchenette" but, aside from a sink, counter, and cupboards, it was totally un-equipped and therefore pointless. Would it be too much to ask for a water heater and tea/coffee? Such a modest investment would bring many compliments especially since it is rare to find in S.American hotels. Our room (501) had a lovely timber-decked patio but with no table/chairs. And for such a luxurious room one would also expect a proper shower enclosure. The TV was too small for the room and during our 2-day stay the only 2 English news channels (CNN/Bloomberg) were not working.

The breakfast had some nice touches like freshly-squeezed juice, walnuts, stoned prunes, plus strawberry jam and whipped cream with which, by layering it thickly on the media-lunas (soft, so better toasted) one can make a delicious English-style cream tea..! Angela, the hard-working receptionist, was very obliging, making several phone calls for us, etc.

It sound like I am complaining a lot but I really liked this hotel and am trying to help them improve by pointing out a few issues.

Room Tip: Offer to pay in cash
