I've stayed at a few budget places in Montevideo, and this is the nicest so far. It's a simple hotel, but the average budget traveler would probably like it. The rooms are fairly bright, some have hardwood floors and some have carpet, some have new bathrooms, some have older bathrooms in very nice condition. The desk clerk will show you a few different rooms before you decide on one. They don't have air conditioning, which would be nice during their summer months, but they do have ceiling fans. Cable TV with a small color TV provided. Free simple breakfast. Right in the middle of everything, but the rooms in the back are quiet. Do not take a room that faces the street because those rooms are noisy, with buses running every few minutes until about 11pm. The prices in January 2007 were US$16 a day for one person, including tax and breakfast!

- Hotel Richmond Montevideo is situated right in the Centre of Montevideo, which is an excellent choice for tourists who want to meet the best local attractions, being the majority at the Centre and Old City neighbourhoods. Also, a very convenient location for corporate travellers due to the proximity to the Old City neighbourhood too, since it is Montevideo´s and even our country´s main financial district. The location of the hotel, besides of being near to some of the best restaurants, museums, art galleries, monuments and more, also has very good public and private transportation. In addition, the hotel is located about 2,5 km from the Port of Montevideo, 5 km from Punta Carretas Shopping (biggest one), a 10-minute car ride from the main bus terminal of Montevideo, being Terminal Tres Cruces, while also only 20 km from the Airport of Montevideo.
