“Good location as its near the Bus Station”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

The hotel has the basic to stay one or two nights. Is very close to the bus station so is very good if you are planning to go to other cities in uruguay by bus. the breakfast was average, it could improve the quality. the room are fine though they can modernize. the bathrooms was very decent. the wi fi was very good and stable.
all in all i recommended and stay again.

The hotel is good, because of its location, welcoming staff and good price.
The room was okay and we had a heating system that helped us a lot on the wintry nights.
It's a good option, but you shouldn't expect anything in special for what you're paying, I am assessing it on the basis of value for money.
Tres Cruces Terminal is just around the corner which makes going to other UR cities quite convenient.

i stayed there last week for 3 nights. i think they neither renovated nor painted anything in 15 years and it was kind of shabby .no comparison to a 3 star in europe. but 44 us on despegar com was acceptable in a country where you pay 4 bucks for a bottle of coke in a supermarket. dont expect anything really fancy in uruguay for less than 300 us a night.if you dont want to spend that money take this hotel. in front of the bus terminal 3 cruces and very practical for starting or ending your trip. just cross the street and take a bus to punta del este or colonia i order to get to argentina. for 44 us unbeatable ! nice breakfast.ham,juice,croissants etc.okay.i looked at some hotels before taking this one and it was the best.
before you take the days inn which is at least 100 us and the same level of neglect or the abominable and terrible (really!!!) royal palace , or even the hideous hotel terminal in front of the terminal with rats in front and huge stains on the wall (i got out there as fast as i coukd!!!)stay in this one. i liked it fpr the money!!!
absolutamente practico para viajeros que no quieren gastar tanta plata .uruguay es el pais mas caro del mercosur.si van a punta del este van a pagar unos 250 us para el mismo tipo de hotel.asi que quedense en este y con el bus que sale en frente de la terminal esta bastante mas economico.infelizmete montevideo es una ciudad megaaaaaaaa aburrida :)
hay 3 hoteles mas en esta zona.el days inn (90 us ,mismo estandard,nada mejor, y el royal palace lo que es absolutamente terrible como tb era el hotel de la terminal en frente de la terminal.me acuerdo que en 2010 me quede 10 min en este y estaba lleno de hongos y bichos y lo peor hotel que jamas vi en la vida..el mejor era aun el 3 cruces de todos esos baratos.. por lo menos era mas o menbos limpio y el desayuno agradble con jamon,jugos etc.

Room Tip: i asked for a high floor room, room 502 and it was okay. the doors are to thin so it was kind of noi...

This is a kind of place,you are getting more than what you pay.You are getting an accomodation plus an ugly and rude reception and management (this is the BONUS). The service was really terrible, at the front desk they were rude and not understanding English well.Actually not cheap, and not centrally located,it can be count in a budget category (but,do not forget to add your taxi costs) and the only point is very near to main coach station national and international lines coming.You need a taxi or If, you find a bus to city center everytime.And there is no proper place to dine in this area except their restaurant.Clean ensuite-rooms coming with a bunk bed,table and chairs,wardrobe,A/C and Fridge but, all of them is waiting from before second world war.I have never seen an old Tv and A/C like there.The bathroom is OK, but looking like coming from antiquity museum.The carpets are very tired and stained.There was an free internet.The building and rooms are very old and tired but the most terrible thing is their staff is very tired and rude and no information about hospitality and they are looking like an old communist countries soldiers.

Advantage; very near to coach station
Disadvantage;rude management and not near to center

Next time I,will find a place near to the center or beach which most of them are same price category and more comfortable and peaceful.

I have stayed at the Hotel Tres Cruces on severla trips and several occasions. So why all the varying reviews on TA about this place? It all depends on what you are looking for and expecting.

First off, the place is "cheap", and that usually does NOT mean luxury. It equates mor eto "dorm room" in the US. And that is what the rooms look like, small dorm room size with typically two beds, a dresser and TV, a chair and a small table. the walls will not be wallpapered or freshly painted, and will probably show a yer or two worth of scuffs from peoples luggage on them. The beds are comfortabel though, and that is really what matters most.

The bathrooms are a good size, but again, no luxury here. Simple tile, LOTS of hot water and good pressure. Clear windows outside with no shades on them may bother you if you are modest. Or shower at night with the lights off I guess.

The hotel is located across from the women's prison (I kid you not) which looks like an old church (because it is). Nothing ever happens there, so this should not concern you, but it is kind of "funky" in that regard. The bus station is about 1.5 city blocks away, thus if yo are a bus traveller this is VERY convenient. However do not think you can just get a room with no reservation, as this place is often completely booked up. Probably due to that same bus station proximity.

The continental breakfast is small, simple, but edible. I have had better, and I have had worse. this is maybe a bit below avge.

Staff is errtic. Some are VERY nice, some are difficult. the maids are great, most of the front desk is fine, one or two are a bit forward. They are efficiant, and it is easy to get in and out here.

IN SUMMARY: When I am in MVD alone, this is my FIRST CHOICE. I usually have a car, it is cheap, and I am usually not spending time in the hotel except to sleep and shower. Inthat respect, this place is absolutely perfect. Would I take my family to stay here? Not really. there are much nicer places to stay for not too much more money. This is my MVD "crash pad" when alone.

If you are not too picky, or on a budget, or travelling by bus, this is the place for you. If you are looking for large well appointed rooms, luxury, a nice restaurant, things to do in the 'hood, this is definitely not the place.

For value I don;t think you csan do better than this hotel. Just do not net your sights too high and you will be fine. think "dorm room" all the way.

I started this review by saying I have stayed her many times, and I will stay here again. I like it for what it is, simple and cheap. But if I stay with others, I go to the Ermitage.

We had already stayed at this hotel before, when we visit Uruguay on the winter of 2010.
This time we stayed three nights and were lucky to stay in a room (604) better than the last. Located on a high floor and with a pretty good view of the city and the Rio de la Plata.
The bathroom was of good size and seemed be refurbished a short time ago. Channels in English and Portuguese on TV and at the bedside a clock radio. Good air conditioning.
At the reception 01 computer connected to internet and free wi fi in the room.
The breakfast is weak with few options. Not even the media luna sandwich (Uruguayan famous sandwich) had good flavor.
The strong point is in the hotel location near the bus terminal and easy access to the rest of the city and also to/from Carrasco Airport. The taxi to the old town costs around $ 6 and takes about 15 minutes.
Good option for two nights , with cost of US$ 60.00 per night.

Great Price but not worth the problems ! The service was terrible from the start, the service at front desk, the attitude and bad character awful. We were a entire family booking 5 rooms, imagine, and they were rude and not very educated when it came to customer service. We were there for a wedding, and visiting Uruguay after 10 years of being away. None of our messages were past on, and family members that came to the hotel to ask for us were made to wait out side the hotel! Very rude, very rude service! The lady's of the front desk were great, but the front desk male attendant had no customer service what so ever. I would prefer to pay a few dollars more and stay some were they know how to treat there valued customers!!!!
