    Nice hotel, very friendly staff. Perfect for young couples at the very center of the old city.

    Its is in the city centre.

    The room was not clean, and had a bad smell. The curtains were damaged. The nearby restaurant, Don Peperone, recommended for dinner, serves food of a terrribly bad quality at a high price and should be avoided.

    The staff were very friendly and ready to assist at all times. The view from the top floor bar is amazing, the hotel should make better use of this space and promote its use for business travellers and even as a gay friendly bar.

    Some of the rooms are very small, we had to ask for a different room as too small for two people.

    The superior double room was nice with a balcony and the room was spacious. It is a neat old building.

    The less expensive rooms are quite small with an awkward layout.

    The hotel was very comfortable with plenty of space. The hotel is well located for tourism: unfortunately we arrived on 01 May adn the city was shut down so could not enjoy the old city.

    The shower was not that clean. The concept is great but marks on the walls and dirty, rusted bins spoiled the overall effect.

    Good restuarants near by and quite easy to shopping around

    My room on second floor and very very noisy even I read some review before I should belive them I can sleep around 3 am.! and a lot of noise start early around 7 am. Staff quite polite may be when I was in room I found hair and dirty spot on pillow ok they hurry send maid to change but after that in bathrrom I found hair and hair again I give up to complaint. Breakfast is just ok but for hot food they did not fill in when it was finish.

    Leaving the hotel after our one night booking !!!

    It is an extremely old hotel in the oldest, ugliest, dirtiest and unsafe part of the city. The hotel and room felt dirty. To get to the "restaurant", you had to climb up a very narrow, steep set of stairs. If you couldn't climb the stairs (and they weren't easy even for someone without physical restraints), there was no other way to get there. Food in "restaurant" was minimal and staff weren't very friendly or helpful.

    Very nice hotel with with turn of the century style. Perfectly located close to Plaza Independencia. The rooms are recently renovated in a modern and interesting style. Small but nice breakfast room on the 5:th floor with city view. Friendly staff.

    Beautiful building, great spacious rooms, good breakfast, ideal location.

    noise at night due to neighbourhood - heart of bars and clubs so ok if you stay out till 4am or so, not so good if you are in bed !

    The town centre location was excellent. It was easy to walk round the town from there.

    The breakfast location needs consideable updating and the choices available were not great.

  • Group of friends

    Stayed in the best room i.e. suite (about US$105/night) for a week with partner and parents. All of the staff were extremely helpful and sympathetic. Location was great. Cost-benefit very good compared to other hotels in Montevideo. Decor is modern, rooms well cleaned. Good cheap lunchtime restaurant can be found by turning left out of the hotel, taking the first road on the right then it's about the fourth building on the right (other restaurants in the area are very expensive in comparison even though quality is the same).

    Elevator is ancient and broke a few times meaning some tiring walks up the spiral staircase to the fourth floor. Lacks room service. Hotel is noisy at weekends although I had already seen this on the reviews and wasn't too bothered about it.

    It is a wonderful modern and renovated hotel in the French style building located in the beautiful part of the old city of Montevideo near the famous theater Solis. Our room was amazing! : large, with 4 decorated balconies , modern bathroom, new TV, high ceiling, comfortable furniture, antique elevator, which we liked a lot, wonderful view from the breakfast room and terrace on the top floor, very delicious breakfast (ham, cheese, jam, juice, fruits, yogurts, croissants, coffee, tea, etc.) The hotel staff recommended us a very good restaurant Parrilla(Pasado?) de Solis, where we ate the best Marcilla and lomo

    It is the best hotels in the old city ! It was a noise at the night from the bar which was located nearby. However, I definitely recommend this wonderful antique hotel.
