This little spot is a gem in a hard-to-beat location -- just a few blocks from the rambla (beach, boardwalk, easy transportation), just a few blocks from the Teatro Solis & Plaza Independencia, a few blocks from Plaza Constitucion & the Sarandi walkway, and then just a few more blocks from port (with more food options and easy ferry access should you want to hop across to BA) -- all of this from right on the edge of the old city.
Casa Sarandi was our first foray into Montevideo, into Uruguay, and into South America as a whole, so as our homestead for 3 nights, it had its ambassadorial duties cut out for it. And it delivered. The space inside was comfortable, with spacious rooms, street-view balconies, a cozy little lounge area with a good library full of regional resources, a common kitchen, and computer for house access. CS was super knowledgeable about local events going on during our stay that were worth checking out, and they were very well connected with other relevant resources any visitors might need. For instance, after our stay, we went to BA for the weekend, and needed to rent a car when we got back to Montevideo. CS was gracious enough to help connect us with a reliable rental service, and the rest of the trip ran incredibly smoothly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Sarandi is a 1930s style art-deco guesthouse and loft in the heart of Montevideo's Old City - the Ciudad Vieja in Spanish. The guesthouse is a block from the Colonial Square and the Cathedral and two blocks from Uruguay's premier theatre, the Solis and from the rambla - a 25-km long promenade, great for biking and running. The owners Karen and Sergio have lived in Montevideo since 2000, love the city and the national music scene and will help make your stay unique with their daily recommendations -most of which are walking distance-- for things to do, places to go, the most unusual places to eat and drink and the most interesting music and culture Montevideo should be more famous for. Karen runs Guru'Guay, a much-visited website on Uruguay, and now author of a best-selling guidebook "The Guru'Guay Guide to Montevideo". The guest house is very intimate - just two guest rooms. Both rooms have hardwood floors, antique furnishings and original art. Besides your guest room and private bathroom, Casa Sarandi offers a cosy living room and a fully-equipped modern kitchen. ... more less
