“Great Location and views but rooms need an update.”
Reviewed September 13, 2009

This hotel could have it all if they could make a few adjustments to their rooms. Their location is fabulous and the view from a corner suite, which we stayed was fantastic (even though it rained 2 of the 3 days. The room itself, however, was very outdated, had lots of stains on the carpet and wallpaper, and had sub-par linens. I would expect a hotel that charges around $200/nt to have plush sheets, pillows and towels and a cleaner appearance. Personally, I also hoped that the rooms would be as modern as the lobby. It was like they had updated the lobby but have left the look of the rooms back a few decades.

We ate at the restaurant one evening and it was standard - nothing special. If it hadn't been pouring we would have ventured out and I would recommend that you do not waste your dollars on their food. We never had any other meal there but did try to have a drink 2 different times to be told the bar was closed (one time was at 8pm). I think they should always have a bar open!

I give this hotel 3 stars due to its location. You can not beat where it is, the access you have to the great Punta Carnas mall, and the Rambla for running and taking a stroll. And if you can afford it, the corner suite is great for the views down the beach and out to the ocean. But if you are looking for all the plush amenities of a 5 star hotel, you will be disappointed.

Rooms with superb views of the Rio de La Plata (we could even watch the wonderful fireworks display at Noche Buena - Christmas Eve - from our window). Corteus room service. Chocolates at night and weather forecast leaflet a treat! As we spent Chistmas Eve and Christmas Day in Montevideo the gift of a tasty panettone was very nice. We enjoyed every bit of it. The restaurant service was slow, though. The porters were helpful. On the minus side, we had booked a superior room (larger and with better views of the river) which was never given to us. They promised to move us the next day and never did it (and never apologized). When asked, they insisted the hotel was full, but we had our booking confirmed, very well in advance. Reception shoud be more sympathetic (especially to foreigners) and should speak English better. Al in all, the experience was unique and quite agreeable

Cala di Volpe lives up to its reputation of a boutique hotel. An excellent location on the "rambla", the avenue that circumvents the beaches on the Rio de la Plata and the highlight of Montevideo, very good breakfast, and great staff. It is the place I stay whenever I go to MVD alone or with my wife (less convenient if you want to bring young kids alone, though not a problem if you are used to them sleeping in your room). You can get some other nice hotels in the Carrasco area, but none as conveniently located. And the pricing is good value for money. The only shortcoming is that they don't have parking (only a few places), but it is easy to park on the street most of the time.

I stayed at Cala di Volpe for 8 months. The service was always very good, and the staff always helped us in whatever we needed. The rooms are ok in terms of comfort and the view of the Rio de La Plata is a good attractive. The rooms are always very clean, but if you don't smoke, ask for a non-smoking room, because the smoking rooms have a terrible smell of cigarettes. The restaurant has good food with average price. Only the bottled water in the room was a little overpriced. The breakfast was good too, but in the weekends you should have it before 9:30am or you won’t find a table since the restaurant is very small.
The area of Punta Carretas is very good, there is a nice Shopping three blocks from the hotel and very nice restaurants nearby. You can always relax walking in the "Rambla".
In my next trip to Montevideo I would certainly stay at Cala di Volpe again.
