Without a doubt this was the best hotel experience my wife and I had our entire 2 week trip! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the room was very nice, comfy bed! The breakfast was amazing, and the rooftop bar and pool just added to how awesome this place is!! Stay here, I promise you will NOT be disappointed!

A wonderful hotel in old town Montevideo. Close to the famous Mercado where lunches are not to be forgotten! Staff and rooms are exemplary. Roof top pool and lounge is a great place for a glass of great Uruguaian Red or White

We had a lovely two days at Montevideo and the staff went out of their way to help us. Gonzalo telephoned to check things out for us. Thank you. The room was quiet and confortable. We liked the simple breakfast. We were disappointed that the linked grill restaurant in the port market closed at 16:30. The food and service there...

A nice hotel, friendly staff but they suffer from that South American trend of having a lovely chat amongst themselves rather than attending to their guests. When they do pay you attention it is warm and effective. The rooms are lovely but what possesses any one to put glass panels next to the door so at night the room is...

The stay here was the highlight of our trip to Montevideo. We had one of the standard rooms and yet it certainly didn't feel standard. We got to see other rooms as well and they were all beautiful.

Dear Guest, Your words are very kind and as you very well said, the Don is a boutique hotel at its finest. Noteworthy is the fact that the Old City is now an up-and-coming area full of trendy restaurants, shops and art galleries. Long gone are the days when this part of town was unsafe or not suitable for tourists....
