My first time in Don Boutique Hotel. It is a discreet art-decó building located in front of the Port Market (Mercado del Puerto), where you can find many restaurants and shops. It is a walking distance of the center of Montevideo, through a nice pedestrian boulevard. The area is deserted at night, but during the day is very animated. The...

Our experience with the hotel began when we were picked up at the airport in the middle of the night by a service arranged by the hotel. We were delighted by our first sight of this brightly lit art deco hotel and by the warm welcome from the English-speaking staff. Our rooms carried out the design theme and in the...

Great place to stay, in the old town of Montevideo in front of the Market with great places around, from there you can walk to downtown City or take a cab to the Ramblas . Nice staff, good rooms. The Oldtown of Montevideo is getting refurbished and is safe to walk even at night!

First and most importantly, the staff was wonderful , knowledgeable and helpful. I chose this hotel due to its proximity to the ferry terminal and Cuidad Viejo. It is an easy walk to both. I'm guessing that I booked the smallest room they had. It was clean and modern but with few amenities. there was Wi-Fi so that's a plus...

The hotel is well located opposite the meat market and near the ferry port. The reviews about the area being dangerous are very exaggerated and we did not feel threatened. There is no need to roam the streets at night anyway. If you only have a day or two in Montevideo before or after BA, this is the area to...

As the name suggests, the Don is a boutique hotel in the Old City. The staff (Maria and Natalia in particular) were amazingly friendly and helpful, providing maps, dining suggestions, calling cabs, and answering all my questions. It has a modern design but had it's drawbacks as well. The jacuzzi tub was too small to use, trust me I tried....

Good location. You are 30 feet away from their old train station /covered market with restaurants. Hotel has outside pool. Party area is on roof top. It was not used by anyone while I stayed there. What was used is the street in the front of the hotel at night by some bums signing songs. You could also hear car...

Really nice hotel with friendly staff, beautiful pool area, delicious breakfast (a la carte not buffet). Pillows were way too hard for our liking but asked if they had any softer and were instantly replaced. Our only concern was the location which was fine during the day, but at night it's quiet and dark with a few shady characters hanging...
