Looking forward to another visit

Casa Sarandi is not your usual hotel--it is much better! Located on a single floor in a multi-story apartment building, it is wonderfully located for visiting the sites in Montevideo and for taking advantage of the night life in the area. While there is not a staff person located on-site, the owner met us there as scheduled for us to check in and was available promptly via email whenever we had a question about anything. Since guests share a living/dining area and kitchen, it provides an opportunity to meet others who are visiting Montevideo and allows you to prepare any or all of your meals, if you choose. The individual guestrooms with en suite bathrooms and the common areas are all beautifully and comfortably decorated. Buses use the street below day and night, which is a little noisy, but is quite convenient if you wish to get around the city by bus. There was both a pharmacy and a small store immediately adjacent which was also quite convenient. We enjoyed talking with the owners and found the information that they provided about Montevideo invaluable. We're already looking forward to our next visit!
