Nice stay in Montevideo
The staff were excellent, accommodating our limited Spanish and ensuring we had all the help and assistance we needed. Breakfast was more than adequate and staff friendly. The rooms were small especially for travellers with 2 suitcases, however we were aware of this and did not plan to spend much time in the room. Great location - opposite the Rio Plata and directly on las rambla. 5 minute up hill stroll to large shopping mall and local and tourist buses. Only one thing slightly let it down was the room had a very stale smell and the under pillows needed to be changed. We loved Montevideo and would not hesitate to stay here again
