Reviewed 23 August 2012

The Hermitage undoubtedly meets the objective of meeting the guest the best possible: the rooms are clean, well equipped with 32 "LCD, beautiful view Gomensoso Square and the river.'s New breakfast room location is on the mezzanine , facing the river and nice color. Parking for now is 2 blocks but are contsuyendo one inside the hotel.'s 2 pc's that are available in the lobby with high speed internet. Beds are comfortable, rooms are great and the bathroom is remodeled. Cleanliness is necessary and care staff are very warm and efficient.
Prices are more than acceptable
It always comes back to this "home sweet home" in Montevideo

The hotel is an old hotel which recently has had a update but still has an old feeling to it, rooms are clean and good size, internet is free and not too bad for speed. The breakfast is a typical South America breakfast, some fruit , scrambled eggs and ham with bed and coffee. The staff are friendly and efficient.

Location is really the best thing about the hotel as it face the beach and be sure and ask for a front facing room as it has the views. If you like walking the rambler is a great walk in either direction. Parking is free on the street and there are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance or short taxi drive.

Room Tip: Choose a front facing room, great views

The best thing about this hotel is its location, near the beautiful beach of Pocitos, and relatively close to a large shopping center. Much better that the historic center, which, in my opinion, is a place to visit, not to stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast is good.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street offer a good view of the beach, and are not noisy, at least in the upper flo...

HOTELS AND NEIGBORHOODS

Montevideo is a relatively safe city . The city is built on a slight hill, that starts where it was the original city or Old City (Ciudad Vieja). The city extends east from Plaza de la Independencia, along an avenue called 18 de Julio.

El Centro (downtown) is in this area and there will be lots of shops and places to see and very interesting places to visit by day. But not at night.

I suggest if you stay in an hotel choose one in another neighbourhood as Pocitos, Punta Carretas . There are many hotels in this area, restaurants, a beautiful seaside rambla, shopping centers, golf club, and beautiful buildings.
.
The Ermitage hotel is a traditional Pocitos hotel , very well located in front of the Pocitos beach , and interesting places nearby to see by day and night.

Some of the reviews we had read about the Hotel Ermitage in Montevideo were a little off putting, especially the issue of tobacco smoke in the hallways/rooms. There was a smoke spell from time to time but it wasn't the stale smoke smell from someone smoking in the room. The location on Positos Beach was fun; good restaurants were within walking distance; the area had a resort feel to it. As to the room, we asked for a room with twin beds in the back of the hotel. It was quiet, the beds were comfortable and the shower was great. Breakfast was substantial. Transportation was readily available and we bused to el centro and even to the airport. The price was right and the staff was helpful.

If you only need a decent room for the night, this hotel will be perfect . But it would be better to spend less money somewhere else if you or not after comfort or frills.

Perfectly located with a view over the water, this frayed around the edges hotel offers a breakfast room reminiscent of a hospital cafeteria or church tea function. The breakfast is the usual rioplatense offerings: sugar an lots of it.

The rooms are standar and supplies what you might need when you don't spend too much time in the room. Chipped furniture, frayed carpets and a dirty fridge spoiled the excitement we felt when we saw what a great view we had over the beach.

The shower is great though, but there are no toiletries offered.

Either the hotel needs to to be urgently revamped or downgraded as
