This hotel is in a great location -- not far from the port, close to the Rambla, and easy to grab a taxi from the square it faces. The staff were friendly and helpful, but I think it's a 1-2 star hotel overall. The breakfast was a bit sketchy, and often had flies which made it very unappealing. The room...

I stayed at the Lancaster Hotel for one month in February with a large group. While our rooms varied in size, decor and cleanliness, overall they were consistently dirty (mold in the showers, dirty shower curtain liners, shabby carpets, etc.) and outdated. It reached up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit during parts of the month I was there and my air...

The rooms were in very rough shape, the first room I had was very old and dirty with really filthy carpet so I requested a change. The next room had hardwood floors but that was about the only upgrade. The double bed was two twin beds pushed together that split apart every night. The bathroom wasn't very clean, the back...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only thing that bothered me, the shower/tub was small and it was tough to turn around in it. Also the bus stop was outside the hotel so it was easy getting a bus and returning.

The location is really good and the staff (at the reception) very nice and helpful. We read a lot of not very good reviews of the place but we decided to book it anyway because of the low price & location, but our experience was really good, it was nice and comfortable. The interior would definitely need some renovation, everything...

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour around South America. Usually I would Not choose to stay in a hotel like this but didn't have much choice but it confirmed my reasons as to generally never staying in less than a 4*. The hotel is really old and outdated with the ugliest bathroom. The room was...

Myself and two friends went to Uruguay for three days and this hotel was completely suitable for our needs. It's right on one of the main roads so super convenient if you plan on touring the central area - a lot of the main sites are actually walking distance (palace and the river were both only a half an hour...

This hotel is in a great location in central Montevideo but be aware it is cheap and likely because it has not been renovated in quite some time The room carpet was a bit nasty with a stain we avoided but the bed was clean as was the washroom. It is a simple place to stay but not for those...

Dont get turned off by the slightly run down exterior or lobby. Yes, the management really needs to spend a bit of money changing rugs, painting walls in the lobby and hallways. But if you can deal with this, I think that you will enjoy your time at this place. We spent two nights there and thought it was a...

“We didn't get to choose our room but one with a window facing out towards the Plaza would probably be nicer than the other side (we were on). Also the water dispenser is on the 2nd floor.”
