“Old and dusty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

The hotel from the outside doesn't look old but when you enter the lobby my first impression was a very dusty and dirty carpet in the front desk. The room looks very old, with old furniture and an old and cold bathroom, the shower was very difficult to manage at a good temperature, either too hot or freezing cold. The shower was not very clean, it had hair from the previous guest. The corridor carpet was very dusty, it seemed they had done some repairs and there was white dust from the repairs which they left there for a day and when they 'cleaned' it, they didn't do it very well. The elevator is super old. The only 2 good things about this place is 1) the location, next to the 'rambla' in the sea walkside and just 3-4 blocks from the main square, and 2) the price. Next time I will look for another place to stay, probably Axsur hotel across the street

This NH hotel is conveniently located and has its own parking space. The triple room we got was ok but nothing outstanding and so was the service. The breakfast was very generous and had a reasonable quality although the dinner we had at the bar (we were told the restaurant was not working) but not very impressive...

Since it was raining outside we used the hotels gym which was a little bit disappointing: just two treadmills, some weights laying around in the floor and two bicycles that didn't work that well. The jacuzzi looked quite grossed and the sauna didn't have a appealing look either (we did not use either...)

Overall an ok stay but nothing great.

Was last week there. Hotel is in lousy condition. We were a group and some of us mentioned that there rooms had not been cleaned for days. The waiter serving breakfast had a dirty shirt... The shower was not working properly, etc.

The location is great. You can even just walk about 10 blocks to get buquebus. Very convinient. Although price is not similar to other NH hotels. But still a pleasant stay. Wi-fi free in the entire hotel and great breakfast included. Don't miss the sunset at the roof top. Just beautiful!

After some 3 years, stayed again at the NH Columbia. I am 3 yeras older and so is the hotel.
Still a great location, oceanview and a spacious room that had been built well. Once.
Service is still very friendly and nice.
However the plumbing is hectic -- water temperature in shower oscilating between cold and boiling hot (and I mean hotttttt). Many things are broken.
The air-condition shaft has not been cleaned since my last stay in 2010... At least that's how it looks.
Bottom line: next trip to Mointevideo, I'll likely look for an alternative hotel.

Room Tip: The Restaurant Solic -- in vfront of Teatro Solic serves wonderfull steaks. The Gurvich Mueso is co...

NH Columbia has the perfect combination of location, price, quality, wide rooms, good breakfast and attention.
When travelling for business or for pleasure, this hotel is perfectly located to do a stop over in Montevideo. Easy access by car, good parking, and outstanding views of the Rio de la Plata.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the river!
