“Small, clean and comfortable hotel.”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

From the airport we took the bus for less than $2. We asked the driver to let us off close to Paraguay and Maldonado. The bus stops on 18 De Julio street which is about six blocks away. We found the hotel with no problems. Our check in was quick. We got a standard room which had one queen room. No twin beds. the room had no windows and was small. The bathroom was ok. It met our needs. From here we walk to the old part of town. I recommend you stay on 18 de Julio since it is a busy street. Some of the streets in this area are empty. We had no safety issues. At night it was lonely and quiet but we walked to nearby restaurants with no problems.

Great location for a couple nights in Montevideo. CLEAN and cost effective hotel. Stayed two nights and had a great experience. Although the women running the front desk didn't speak English, she broke out the google translate and did everything in her power to make sure we were communicating clearly. It was fantastic.

The hotel is on a pretty corner across the street from a great little cafe. It's also two blocks from the waterfront rambla. You can scoot down and walk on the rambla into downtown Montevideo. (5-10 minute walk max). Montevideo is a big city, I recommend two nights max, and Sur is the place to stay.

Stayed for 4 nights with my fiancée. Stayed in the room 17, double superior with bathtub. The room is big, it has a locker inside, cable TV, air-conditioning. The down side was that every time we would come back to the room, there was a mold smell to it. Friendly staff, good advice on how to get around on the city.

Stayed here for 1 night in May. Very friendly Spanish-speaking staff. Rooms were very clean, comfortable. Cable tv in rooms and good wifi on all floors. We were able to check in an hour early and given a choice between 2 different rooms. Breakfast was good (100 pesos extra) with fresh orange juice, coffee, toast, bakery treats, cereal and yoghurt. Map provided. We were also cautioned not to be in the old town past 7pm due to security.

Only negatives would be the varying temperature of the shower and for some reason, we were only given the key to our apartment and the safe later in the day (wasn't possible earlier in the day for some reason - our only moderate Spanish couldn't work it out unfortunately).

Sur is cheap and clean. It's not a luxury accommodation, but you shouldn't expect that for the price you pay. The location is good, though not great. It's a bit of a walk to the old city, which is by far the most interesting part of Montevideo. One issue is that the staff there spoke no English. That wasn't a big problem for us because we speak Spanish, but that could be a problem for others.

Room Tip: Bring your Spanish phrase book, the staff spoke no English when we were there.

Great location, clean, cozy, friendly staff always willing to help. There is no lift but anyways there are just two floors. The rooms and bathrooms are comfortable and super clean. Wi-fi works pretty well and there is a mini-fridge in the rooms. Didn't try breakfast but heard people say it's good. Loved the people at the reception desk: they serie simples great. Definitely recommend it.

Good hotel not far from one of the main streets in Montevideo. Big family room for 6 was nicely decorated in bright green with a double bed and 2 sets of bunkbeds. Breakfast wasnt great for the price. Helpful staff. Very easy to hail a cab right outside.
