“Cheap as chips”
Reviewed 18 January 2008

It is fabulously over decorated and resembles something out of a Miss Marple set. Super clean and mega cheap. Bloke on reception is a miserable so and so but you can't have it all. Word of advice though, pay in cash dollars (to avoid their criminal exchange rate and 4% Visa fee) and have the right money. They do not have change (or rather they do but would rather not part with it) and will insist that this is somehow your fault and that you need to rectify it (by trawling round for a casino at 11pm) with no effort on their part. Still, I would stay again as it is so cheap.

Reviewed 11 December 2007

Located at Uruguay 925 in Montevideo.

I tried to get a package deal in BA with Buqebus for ferry and hotel but was unsuccessful regarding the hotel because of some conference in Montevideo. This hotel is recommended in an older edition of "South America on a Shoestring" by LP.

This hotel is in a good location with big rooms and is very reasonably priced. It cost about $23 US per night for a single. However, this is a very old hotel that has probably not been renovated in 30 years.

Not bad for what you get at such a low price.
