Recent guest reviews

in general a nice hotel in a nice location, close to downtown, historical centre and port. good meal and services available, like gim at 9th floor or car parking. compliment also to the personnel, Always available.

It is a nice hotel, inf front of the ramblas. Quite close to have a bbq in the mercado. The food at the hotel is quite expensive, so preferible go around to have a cheaper place with more options. I found it safe

I was impressed by the location of this hotel. It has free parking and located on the Rambla near the Port in Old town Montevideo. Very convenient for visiting all the important tourist locations in Montevideo using your car. The hotel has security all the time and the views from the river view rooms are very good. The reception person was very friendly, he let me check-in early and I had a good deal on a river view room. The housekeeper showed me the amenities in the room. The bed linens were clean and bed was soft and good to sleep on. The room was pretty big and had a separate bathroom. Breakfast was adequate with scrambled eggs as the fresh item daily and restaurant had good views. From this hotel, it is easy to walk to the Port area, the downtown pedestrian street, Sarandi, and almost all the important plazas and other touristy areas. The price per night was very reasonable as parking was included. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance and area seemed pretty safe. Although, the streets were sort of deserted during the weekend. Taxis are reasonable and the reception can order you one.

This hotel has certainly seen better days and needs a revovation. The guy who checked us in was very unfriendly. The room was small and didn't resemble the picture on the web site at all. The breakfast was ok. One evening we ate at the bar and here again the service was very unfriendly and seemed bothered that we came to eat there. During our whole stay, it rained very heavily and soon after, the whole lobby was full of buckets that were collecting the water that came through the roof. This was the worst NH Hotel I have ever stayed in.

old hotel, need a serious refreshment, check in and check out abnormally longs Bathroom little and not comfortable, breakfast poor and coffee absolutely bad Good vue from the room and good beds But the area in which the hotel is located is so ugly and seems insecure

The rooms are very old and the breakfast left a lot to desire, but you can't beat the location and specially the view if you face the rambla. Staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The place is also inexpensive.

It is not my first time in this hotel and was good as usual. Montevideo is a very nice place with a very kind population, many restaurants with excelents foods and beverages. I recommend the city and the hotel.

Excellent service, in a very good location. As usual in NH hotels, all is OK, from the checkin to the checkout. Only one suggestion: open the restaurant on Sundays, because there are not many options in the zone this day.

I was hesitant to book because of negative reviews on this site, but I am favorably disposed to the NH chain so took a chance. Not disappointed. Yes, the room was a bit tired and worn, but very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Breakfast not automatically included, overpriced.

Good hotel. Beautiful view of the coast from just one side of the building. Good gym, no pool. Nice terrace. Only sauna with no one to attend, you have to handle yourself, turning it on. The male showers of that sector did not work the electric light. There were no large towels or soap there. The heating in the locker room was off. In the lobby gentlemen's bathroom the automatic light was turned off within minutes. The trash can in that bathroom was small and filled with paper towels. In the rooms there was only a small bottle of shampoo and rinse cream. There should be at least two of each, if they are two passengers. When we entered the room an employee asked us to come in to check the refrigerator. That should have been done before our entry. At breakfast there were posters on the tables suggesting to order salchicas or eggs passed by water, but they had extra cost. The good thing is the Sunday breakfast schedule, very wide, from 7 to 12 am. Good beds. The room phone had many buttons and did not understand how to answer it. It was not clear the wifi system. The first day was connected directly, the second had to ask for the password that was not in sight. The room was very hot and it was not clear how to lower it, there were no instructions, we tried with the keypad, but it looked like it did not lower the temperature. In the elevator it was not clear the ground floor (lobby), it gave to confusions with floor of restaurant. When it arrived at lobby the elevator marked "-1", when it should mark "0"
