I had a great experience at the hotel. The location is good, close to the old part of Montevideo. Staff is friendly and helpful and speaks English. They were also very helpful to book a tour for me. Overall, clean hotel with excellent value for money.
The reception staff was very helpful in suggesting places to visit, how to get there, etc. Very efficient in arranging transport to airport. Good location - 10 minute walk to old city and safe location - next to country's courts/tribunals. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Free internet and wi-fi access is a plus. Reasonable room rates. Honored Expedia quoted US rates on credit card transaction.

The best free breakfast period...no discussion, simply the best. Nice rooms, great shower, good wifi and quiet. Nice neighborhood to walk. Lots of very good restaurants within walking distance. Very nice staff from top to bottom. If you book through Expedia, you get a much better price than booking through the hotel. Not a better place in Montevideo for the price. Just book it, you'll be happy.
