Stayed there with a very large group. Overall was a nice hotel. Management was kind enough to switch our room when we had a problem with the beds in the room. Beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. Only complaint was hotel restaurant. Quite expensive and small servings.
A good hotel, got the upgrade to a suite room. Good bed. Good bathroom, but shower in the bathtub, not separate. No shower hose, only shower head up on the wall. I prefer shower head with a hose. A good hotel. Nice bar. Did not try the food.
I was so surprised when I check my credit card bill, today. Stayed in this hotel and my bill was 130 something dollars. But they charged 205 USD!!!!! In the arrival, they ask for your card to pre-authorise 205 usd... even if your room is only 125. I complained that was RIDICULOUS... 80 usd for expenses??? The morning after, I complained again and asked for the right amount to be charged... and that they cancel the pre-authorisation immediately. What happened??? Nothing. The INCOMPETENTS kept the amount of the pre-authorisation and didn't change it to the right amount. These people should understand that they do not have the right to play with our cards. Never again, RADISSON MONTEVIDEO. And I will complain to radisson group customer service. This is an unacceptable behaviour
This hotel is located in the perfect location in the heart of Montevideo. Right in the central square, most places are a short walk including the main walking street that cuts through the town. The staff were very friendly and spoke perfect English. Unfortunately, the hotel is quite old and the decor is quite tired and in need of an upgrade. Also the breakfast was very dissappointing. But overall perfect for our needs.
This hotel gives the appearance of having everything. A great location, nice facilities, and a good atmosphere complete with a casino, let me warn you this is ALL misleading! Although the hotel does offer a central location to business centers and small shops, if you are traveling to Montevideo for a vacation you want to take advantage of the beaches and great al fresco restaurants that are placed on the shore, and the Radisson doesn't offer this. Along with the not so great location (aside perhaps for business), the facilities are outdated, specifically the rooms. Our room seemed fine at first though with a smell of stale smoke, but then at 6:30 the next morning we were awoken by a cracking sound from our window. This sound was later explained to us; due to the windows being old and not having been fit properly the wind and sun cause the noise by causing the windows to expand early in the morning. Although this can be overlooked as a small annoyance it does become maddening when this is how you are woken up every morning! The breakfast buffet lacked warm dishes but had a good variety of pastrys, and was satisfactory. However, and I don't say this lightly, the food was terrible. Durning our entire stay we did not eat a single restaurant that was worse than the hotels. The food is not fresh, usually comes luke warm (if not cold) and is mainly prepared with artificial ingredients. It was a shame to not be able to enjoy the beautiful setting of the Victoria Bistro due to the lack of food quality. Some Positives: - The pool was great for families and is outfitted with beautiful cabana furniture. - The gym was equipped with everything you need to complete your workout. - The service was friendly and professional for the most part. - The lobby was a very relaxing area to hang out at and grab a drink. Overall (if you aren't in Montevideo for business) spend your money somewhere else.
Great location, pool and rooms. Good breakfast , didn't try the restaurant but it looked spectacular with great views and general ambiance with very comfortable lobby and bar area. Would stay again if in the city.
I relied on an old, worn, out of date travel book for hotel information in Montevideo. This resulted in a hotel booking that had similar characteristics. The hotel is aged, stale and in need of a remodel. The room air conditioning was not efficient and windows do not open. With the casino on the first floor, it reminds one of an old, dated Las Vegas hotel. Checking in with a car is difficult as there is no self parking and no valet attendant outside in front of the hotel. The front desk personnel we friendly. I can not review the breakfast because we did not spend the night. We checked out after an hour and moved to another hotel.
More than 30 Years already past since my first stay on in that time, Victoria Plaza Hotel. Already a traditional hotel in Montevideo, located in historical site right in front of the Teatro Solis, one of the oldest Theaters in Latin America. At contrary of this time, it was Winter, and the sky was incredibly blue - something related with Geographical location of Montevideo and lack of industrialization. Now updated, Victoria Plaza maintain the same excellent service whom attracts both tourists and businessmen. Rooms are spacious, reminiscence of the past times original design. Breakfast is very enjoyable with wide selection of Uruguayan cheese, brought to Uruguay by Swiss immigrants, and cold cuts plus the breads made also with excellent local wheat. In spite of proximity to Argentina the Uruguayan breakfast is somehow more delicate and savory than its Argentinean counterparty in a hotel in the same category, however it can be just a matter of personal preference. The large hall where the breakfast is served and courtesy of the staff maybe contribute for this feeling. Because of its privileged location most of business activity can be done by reaching the place by walk or short distance taxi. Suggestion if you have time the way to reach Montevideo - Use the Aliscafo - Hydrofoil vessel service between Buenos Aires and Montevideo (Buquebus Co) - take about 4 hours. Is different way to reach the city.
The hotel is located on the central plaza of Montevideo, with close access to major businesses, good restaurants, major cultural venues, public transportation and taxis. Rooms are large 2-room suites with breathtaking views of the city, port and river. The gym is first rate, with an indoor jogging track, an ample array of exercise equipment. The locker room includes showers, steam and sauna rooms, hot tub. The best feature of all is the olympic-size, indoor, heated swimming pool. An excellent breakfast buffet is served at the top-floor restaurant. The front desk is efficient and attentive. The lobby bar and restaurant is a pleasant setting for meeting with friends or business associates.
Nice hotel that is a little older, but still very good place to stay. The room was large and had outlets for my "American" electric cords. The receptionist who checked me in was not friendly at all, but was competent. On the contrary, the gentleman who checked me out was very friendly. The breakfast was a mess and was staged in one of the casino table rooms.
