If you traveled in Uruguay before you know what to accept when staying in hotels. This place is way above the average. First of all, the location could not be better. Right next to the main walking street of Ciudad Vieja. Second, the building is old school with a classic elevator and rooms (very clean with great bathrooms) that would make a great set in a movie with their iron balconies, tall old doors, and classic furniture. The staff is just out of this world, extremely helpful, nice. There is a room where you can keep your luggage after check out or before check in. There is wi-fi and a couple of extra computers downstairs in the reading room. A useful tip for those don't want to pay for taxi to the airport and don't mind to take the bus. Have the staff call you a taxi and go to the Bus Terminal Baltasar Brum ($3-5 USD.) From that bus terminal take the #700 bus (another couple bucks)to Carrasco, it will take you right in front of the Airport Terminal. Calculate about an hour and a half for the entire trip. This will save you about 30-40 USD and you'll get to see some of Montevideo that otherwise you wouldn't.
