There was only one very little window, which had a view of some inside (not so nice) yard. However this was compensated by white LED lights.
It’s not very clean
Excellent location and great hotel. Great free breakfast, but not the best coffee (a sad reality in all Uruguay). Great bed, small but super comfortable room.
Old facilities which means a small and slow elavator and an old bathroom, very low water pressure.
Location wise it is fantastic if you prefer to stay in an area that has some night activity. Montevideo's old town is pretty run-down so something in a more urban area feels safer. Breakfast is a good continental.
The LOUDEST elevator’s noise! Not just the elevator's engine, but also the lack of a sprint to prevent the sound of a blasting door. If you are a misophobic, do stay away. If you are staying from the 5th floor up (out of 6 floors) you will not find rest. Even if my room was 10 mts away from the elevator door I could not rest without earplugs and a noise cancelling headset. If you are obsessive with cleaning, stay away. Finding long hair from previous guests in the bedroom/bathroom is common, but bits of shaving in the soap shelve in the bathroom... the good part is that the cleaning staff is very sweet and funny. The quilt between linen and the coverlet was very stained - not those fat stains that stick forever, but something that would go away with a wash. I don’t understand how this hotel manage to keep its three start rank.
Really good breakfast and a good location.
Upon arrival, they gave me by mistake the key of another room already occupied. The elevator doesn't work well. The hotel is not very pretty. The shower doesn't have hot water, it is warm water and doesn't arrive with enough power.
With a stay at Alvear Hotel in Montevideo (Centro), you'll be steps from Fountain of Locks and 3 minutes by foot from Pedagogico Jose Pedro Varela Museum. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff.
