Family Fun Vacation

Posted Jan 30, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel was centrally located and is close to La Plaza Independencia and 18 de Julio (main avenue) The neighborhood is getting a transformation with a lot of new buildings being constructed. The hotel itself was clean and the room was nice. I was disappointed that there was no one to help assist in taking the luggage to your room (not even a trolley to put your bags on.) However, other then that the hotel was nice. The inside pool was okay. Reeked of chlorine! Would not really recommend to use the inside pool. The breakfast was FANTASTIC!! Loved the diversity of food and the coffee was divine. Overall this is a great hotel for families looking for convenience and budget friendly.

NO KING BEDS! NO 'REAL' PARKING. False advertisng

Posted Jan 24, 2017
Pros: Very little.
Cons: Buy real king beds! Don't advertise free parking if not available. Paint/clean the facility from top to bottom. Make the roof terrace available.
Location: Close to old town. NOT close to any beach.
- Parking only available for three mini-mini cars. They wouldn't even allow me to park a compact size car. - Their version of a King size bed is two twin beds pushed together. Uncomfortable to sleep in with the hard spine of the two mattress edges running through the center. The hotel has NO KING BEDS. - They advertise 'roof' top terrace ... but it is locked 24x7. - Swimming pool is maybe 4ft deep and in a dark interior. - Breakfast is ok, but eggs cooked in sunflower oil are terrible and bacon is barely cooked. Lots of bread available. - No beach near the hotel. - Hotel is old and looking dated with mold and peeling paint. Only good thing I can say is that it is close to Old town. - Overall, would NOT stay at this facility again.

Ten delightful days in central Montevideo

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Stayed ten nights in this hotel for a business trip followed by a few days holiday. Enjoyed staying at this hotel very much. If you are looking for a corporate bed factory then this is not the hotel for you - you will find the the usual big brand name hotels elsewhere in Montevideo. If you are looking for a funky boutique hotel then this most certainly is for you. It is located in the Ciudad Vieja, the old town of Montevideo and close to the Plaza Independencia, the main central square. There are plenty of good places to eat throughout the old town, although some close quite early in the evening and some are not open on Sundays. First impression is that the hotel is full of art by local artists. The architecture reflects the building's history and marble abounds. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the continental breakfast is ample. In summary, this is a delightful place to stay which added to our enjoyment of the city. I happily recommend it and would be delighted to stay there again in the future.

Quirky and stylish hotel in the old town

Posted Oct 25, 2016
Esplendor is a quirky and stylish hotel. The staff are friendly and the rooms are nice. The swimming pool, though small, is very nice to have. My only small criticism is that the room lacked facilities with which to make tea - as a Brit I find this essential!
