“SEARCH NO MORE, THIS IS A TRUE GEM ¡¡¡¡¡”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I stayed at this marvelous hotel in june 2013, i know its a bit late to write a review but better late than never. This is certainly the best option in Montevideo whether traveling for work or leisure this hotel boutique will certainly not disappoint you. Located in Punta carretas, an unbeatable location over the Rambla where you can admire beautiful views of Rio de la plata with amazing sunrises this place is a gem. Just a walk distance to playa de los pocitos and punta carretas shopping mall where there are many options for dinning and if you want to get around the city, there is a turibus stop right in front of it that will take you to the best places over Montevideo. I stayed at a corner suite on the 9th floor with stunning views over the river and the rambla. The room was very nice, well decorated, clean and very comfortable, with floor to ceiling windows, equipped with bide and shower bath tube with separated sink, it could not get any better. The hotel has a spa at the top floor with a well equipped gym and huge jet tube, though we did not use it, it looked just great with breathless views Breakfast buffete was included in the room for 2, with excellent options from toast, muffins, fruits and juices to any type of eggs and cold cuts, great option to start the day so its well worth the upgrade to a room that has a bed and breakfast deal. Check in and out was fast, staff very polite and helpful, they even offered me a tablet for dizziness since we took the ferry from Buenos Aires to Montevideo and was not a good experience for me though still recommend to take since its the cheapest and more convenient way to get to Uruguay from Argentina. We did not have any other than breakfast at the the hotel so i cant tell about dinning there but they seem to have very nice options at a great price and by the evening the place gets packed with locals having coffee and deserts. We decided to walk over the rambla instead and there are some great options for dinning facing towards the river and there is always punta carretas shopping mall with many restaurants too. If you want to take a taxi instead i would only recommend to walk to punta carretas shopping mall where there is a taxi stop and believe me you will save about 50% and its only a 3 min walk, if you decide to ask a taxi from the front desk the price will triple. I cant tell by myself but another couple who was travelling with us stayed at the Sheraton right in front of punta carretas shopping mall and came to visit us at the room and they said the were amazed by our room, much bigger, cleaner, more luxurious and better views over the river than then one they had and when they asked us how much was it they were surprised they had paid about 50% more than we did and our room was in all the ways, a lot better. They asked us if we had wifi and yes we did and was free and pretty fast. So i recommend you to search no more, this is the perfect place for a great stay in Montevideo for location, comfort, service and price, i would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Get a corner suite it is worth the upgrade and breakfast is included

Great location right on the Rambla with good restaurants and cinema options in walking distance. We stayed 3 nights and then returned for our last night so we actually stayed in two different rooms, both of which were very clean and comfortable, with a side view to the river. Breakfast is very complete and varied, with lots of fresh fruit, different types of bread, cold cuts, etc, and the dining area is very pleasant with large windows looking out to the street and sun streaming in. The side street is quiet and airconditioning in the rooms is also surprisingly quiet. Good wifi reception in rooms. All staff were very helpful and friendly. We'd stay here again.

I spent 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. It is utterly charming. Helpful staff. Lovely rooms and breakfast fit for a king. The only unfortunate part is you need to take a taxi ride to downtown, rather than a walk. The wonderful part is to be situated on the Rambas affording great river views.
Close to a beautiful shopping center with loads of shopping and restaurants.

Room Tip: No tip necessary all rooms will be lovely. Note can be windy.

We are currently staying at this hotel. We have a corner suite with beautiful views of the ocean. The hotel is situated on the rambla which is a walkway adjacent to the ocean. You can rent bicycles for free for the first hour and ride on the rambla. Hotel breakfast was ok but it is the same food all the time which gets boring. There is some construction next door so you hear banging at 9am until 4 pm but we were not in the room to hear it. Staff was very friendly and bilingual . Overall I would definitely recommend the hotel.

Cala di Volpe hotel is on the Rambla in the Punta Carretas section of Montevideo. I thought staying in this section provided the perfect combination of being able to get into downtown Montevideo quickly and easily and also to walk out the door and spend time at the beach or walking the Rambla. The (standard) room was sufficiently large, had a view of the Rambla and water. WiFi did not work well in the rooms during our stay. We mostly took public transportation to downtown (bus stop 2 blocks from hotel at the front of the shopping mall), used a taxi one night after a late performance (which was easy to get and inexpensive), and easily drove into town and parked in a garage on our last day. I found the hotel restaurant to be very expensive for food or drink but there are a few very good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Breakfast was very substantial with eggs made to order in addition to a full buffet with many choices. Except for one staff person at the front desk I found the staff to be somewhat patronizing. They had the appropriate smile on their face and seemed to be listening but there was something about the attitude that just wasn't what it should be.

My mother and I spent 3 nights at this hotel. For the price we paid (180 USD/n) we where expecting more.

When we first checked into our room the safe was broken and the front door would not completely shut or lock. The problem was fixed after about an hour though. The staff was adequate, but didn't really go out of their way to be friendly or helpful. The breakfast buffet was good and a nice variety.

This is a decent hotel, just not as luxurious as it's made out to be on the website. We thought it was a very poor value for the money.

I stayed at Cala di Volpi lots of times in business trips. It is a confortable hotel with a nice crew. It is located in a beautiful part of the Rambla, but it is a little bit far from restaurantes and atractions, if you looking for walking distance things. Good restaurant and breakfeast.
