Profile: Ciudad Vieja

Profile: Ciudad Vieja

Ciudad Vieja borders Downtown to the west and its compact streets, mostly pedestrianized, bewitch lovers of history, architecture, nightlife, and culture. Take a tour of the landmark Teatro Solís, built in 1856, and marvel at the stunning interior of the Metropolitan Cathedral.

This “barrio” is built on the city’s western peninsula and a stroll along its ramblas, or esplanades, offers refreshing views of the Rio de la Plata. Taste the most delicious traditional Uruguayan food and beverages at Mercado del Puerto, and hit the dance floor afterward—Ciudad Vieja is renowned as the center of Montevideo’s energetic nightlife.

  • 6.0.Good

    Property is in remodelation. This should be disclosed. Our room was dirty, walls covered with dust and mold. Air Conditioner was dirty and filters completed clogged with dust. Altough they putted us in another room, hotel staff did not apologize and seemed to be angry about our grievance.The hotel although centric its surroundings do not feel as a safe place to hang out at night.

    it for renovation

    Lots of renovations under way. No A/C. Supplied fan. Lots of tour buses unloading. Very good breakfast buffet. Sketchy broken elevator door. Nice location, but we got a city view. Maybe after the reno.

    Location is perfect, however it is not a 4 star hotel. All furniture is too old. All floors are dirty.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great view and location. WiFi worked great. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The only drawback is the property is a bit dated but it looks like they may be in the process of doing some remodeling.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Rude and not helpful staff. No hot water for mate, no kattle. No way to prepare the coffee and tea in your room. If you go to the restaurant to get hot water, you must have your thermo. Shower broke and leaking. Disappointed.

  • 4.0.Fair

    I had requested a double bed, was given twin beds and told that I would be able to change rooms the following day but I did not follow this up. Only lighting in the bed area of the room was a wall lamp - not so good for reading. Went to go to restaurant for dinner on Wednesday night - it was closed so only pub food available. Breakfast the following day - no bread to make toast. At checkout, I wanted to pay cash, but they were not able to give change for bill of $11 from $50 note (rough conversion). Shower in the room was ridiculously high and whole bathroom got wet. One or two little things, but several make me wonder what’s going on. Received message from hotel after my poor rating on arrival (in Spanish which I do not read), but I had not followed this up as changing rooms during a 2 night stay is a pain.
