Great Location to ferry and Mercado market

Posted Sep 24, 2016
This was probably one of the best hotels we stayed in during our trip to Argentina even tho quick one day trip here in Uruguay. It was way more relaxing compared to being in Buenos Aires. The hotel staff esp Natalia and Eduardo in greeting us when we check in early evening with welcome drink etc were particularly helpful and friendly. All staff had great English. The breakfast was a nice surprise in that it was more restaurant style; they gave us menu to order from and portions were huge and delish with eggs, meat, cereal, fruit, pastries, breads etc. As for the room, although small, it was extremely clean and functional. It was very quiet at nite when we arrived on Friday so we got a good nite rest before the market just across the street Saturday. The staff were also great about holding our luggage after we checked out until we were ready to head out for our 8 min walk to the ferry back to BA.

Convenient location. Excellent staff.

Posted Sep 15, 2016
Walkable from the ferry and to Mercado del Puerto and restaurants. The area was older but the hotel stood out as one of the newer and renovated establishments. I think they were trying to show that Montevideo was ready for tourists! The staff was amazing. Extremely helpful and spoke English. Breakfast was included and was plentiful. If we return, we'll definitely stay there again.

Perto do Buquebus e da parada "0" do Bus Turístico

Posted Aug 3, 2016
Pros: Localização, em frente ao Mercado do Porto, onde nos alimentamos muito bem, e alcance a pé do Buquebus e parada zero do bus turístico.
Cons: O box utiliza aquele desenho de meio vidro sobre a banheira, que quase sempre deixa vazar muita água.
Location: Além do já citado sobre a localização, há vários pontos turísticos que podem ser alcançado a pé. À noite não é muito agradável a caminhada pelas ruas.
Ficamos apenas um dia, mas podemos certificar o atendimento de excelência, com profissionais dedicados e muito atenciosos. Destaque para o Sr. Gonzalo, que fez gentil e detalhada explicação dos locais interessantes que poderiam ser visitados a pé.

Great view from the terrace.

Posted Mar 18, 2016
Pros: Location and hostess.
Cons: Directions on how to get there.
Location: Great location, especially if you have little time in Montevideo. Close to Cathedral, Government buildings, Market and other great locations.
We were greeted nicely and given great advice on how to use our limited time wisely. Although the rooms are small they have everything we needed.

Lovely boutique hotel in port area, Montevideo

Posted Mar 10, 2016
Pros: Excellent friendly staff; very good breakfast. Liked the rooftop terrace and pool.
Cons: Would have liked the rooftop bar to have been open at night.
Location: The hotel is situated in the port area, opposite the mercado de Puerto - interesting old market complex. At night the port area is a bit lonely.
Smart new hotel in Montevideo port area. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast, including cooked on demand omelette, eggs etc. being boutique, hotel room was compact but fine. Liked roof top terrace with pool.

Dear Meryl, We are delighted to see you had a wonderful time while staying at our Don Boutique Hotel Montevideo and we are also very pleased to see you share it with the rest of your fellow travelers. It is a shame indeed the rooftop bar was closed during your stay but it's certainly not the case when the summer days arrive. We certainly hope to see you then. Best regards

Hotel Excelente.OJO actividad exterior hasta 17 hs

Pros: La limpieza, diseño, mobiliario. El desayuno al momento, todo fresco. Muy bueno!!!
Cons: Cuidado si se va fuera de temporada no encontraran restaurantes facilmente. Parecería que el hotel pondrá restaurante.
Location: Zona portuaria. A la noche no puedes caminar pues está todo cerrado con persianas.

Estimada Norma, Antes que nada, agradecemos muchísimo que se haya tomado unos minutos de su tiempo para compartir su opinión con todos los demás viajeros. También queremos agradecerle sus comentarios positivos a cerca de nuestras instalaciones y nuestro desayuno, porque cada cosa que hacemos en Don Boutique Hotel - Montevideo está pensada para satisfacer a nuestros huéspedes en todo sentido y generar ese tipo de experiencias y comentarios. Por otro lado, si bien es cierto que nos ubicamos en el área portuaria (que además es conocida por ser en corazón financiero y cultural de Montevideo), y que los alrededores comienzan a cerrar a las 6pm, también es cierto que nuestra ubicación permite a nuestros huéspedes llegar a cualquier parte de la ciudad en un máximo de 20-25 minutos (pensando en las zonas más lejanas), a través de distintos medios de transporte. Por último, le contamos que nuestro hotel cuenta con un restaurante en el Mercado del Puerto llamado El Palenque y está a disposición de todos nuestros huéspedes, bien sea que decidan ir hasta el lugar o que pidan la comida a modo de room service; eso queda a gusto del huésped. Saludos Cordiales, Fiorella Cerchiari Veins Gerente General

Modern, schoon en comfortabel hotel

Posted Mar 6, 2016
Pros: Zie hiervoor: klein en fijn. Ontbijten kan tot 11 uur, dus je kan lekker lang uitslapen. Onze kamer beschikte over een omsloten dakterras.
Cons: We hebben niets te klagen.
Location: Zie hiervoor.
Het hotel ligt op een perfecte locatie in de oude stad, vlakbij diverse bezienswaardigheden (o.a. musea) en voetgangersstraten met winkels en galeries. Ook taxi's en bussen vind je in de buurt. Het is een klein (boutique-)hotel met een nieuw en modern interieur. Er is een klein zwembad met ligstoelen op een dak. Snel en gratis wifi, grote tv met veel kanalen, goede airco. Bed en badkamer top. Geen lawaaioverlast of andere ongemakken. Het personeel is zeer bekwaam, uiterst vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Prima ontbijt. Een aan het hotel verbonden restaurant (uitstekend) ligt aan de overkant van de straat in een voormalige overdekte markt, Mercado del Puerto. Daar bevinden zich nog veel meer restaurants.

Small hotel, small rooms great breakfast

Posted Mar 2, 2016
Hotel in front of the Mercado Del Puerto. Ok to walk around during the day but comes 6:00 PM it's not a safe area. I stayed 2 days and spent 1 day without Internet. Their wifi was down!! Very small rooms. Nice staff and good breakfast, orange juice is freshly squeezed. No restaurant for lunch or dinner at hotel.

Dear Jesse, We kindly thank you for sharing your thoughts about our Don Boutique Hotel Montevideo. It's most unfortunate you felt the area was not safe to walk around at night, specially so, since the Old City is the safest of all neighborhoods in Uruguay and one of the safest in all of South America. It is monitored 24/7 via CCTV cameras located on every single corner of this area and you certainly needn't worry about crime while walking around our quiet streets. We do apologize for the wi-fi down-time you experienced and we understand is a key element within the services expected of us. When it comes to breakfast and room service, we are very pleased to have now our new breafast room and a menu, available at all times. We are always looking for ways of improving our customers' experience and your feedback is the most valuable tool to do so. We hope to have the pleasure of your visit in the future so you can experience all the good things our property has to offer. Best regards
