Clean enough rooms though the room itself and the bathroom can use some updating. Breakfast was surprisingly good and had variety. Wifi was not so good up in the room. As we failed to bring an adapter, the hotel staff had kindly allowed us to charge our gadgets at the reception.

Small room, no frills, but clean and with a hot shower. Good for the price. Breakfast is excellent. Friendly staff at front desk, who do their best to speak some English. Location very central, close to restaurants and 10 minutes walk from old center. Adequate wifi in room.

They gave me a very old room, sheets were all dirty with spots. One night, around 11pm, there wasn't any bottle of water in my room, so I went to talk to the recepcionist to ask for more. He simply answered me that there was no bottles of water anymore in the whole hotel! Since it was late at night...

This was my second time that I stayed at Hotel California in Montevideo. My room was the Superior standard and it was nice, modern and very clean. Important for me was the safe big enough for a laptop computer. WiFi was good. Breakfast was great with juices, lots of fresh fruit, bread, ham, scrambled eggs, coffee and something sweet etc....

It seems like this hotel has been recently refurbished. Our room was nice, modern and very clean. Breakfast was great - lots of fresh fruit, bread, ham, cheese etc. WiFi was good all over the hotel too. The staff were friendly and offered us advice on tours as well as a map. Location was fine and we could easily walk...

We booked last minute and got a superior, renovated room on the top floor with balcony which was very nice. It appeared that some rooms on the lower floors were being renovated to the same standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast buffet choices were good - scrambled eggs, toasts, cereals, yogurt, cakes, jelly, lots of fruits each...

It wasn't. I'm sharing this review to be helpful to other travelers in my position, not to berate the hotel: I don't need a very fancy hotel, but this was a very disappointing and frustrating experience. There is no reason to stay at this hotel - it's poorly run, the wifi never works, the rooms are not pleasant, and the...

For a 3 star hotel it is actually poor, but its breakfast is very good. Despite their lobby and location the rooms are rather bad. You could actually hear everything going on next room and in the hallway. It is not that cheap either so besides the breakfast I will not recommend this Hotel.

The service was excellent. My reservation did not transmit to the hotel. Mauricio was diligent in searching for my reservation. After not being able to locate the reservation he gave me the hotel's email address so I could email the reservation to him. He quickly resolved everything and I was soon settled in to my room! The room did reek...

“Check if room is renovated. We viewed older room & it was small, dark & run down. We paid more to secure newer, larger room.”

“When booking, ask for a room as far as possible from the refurbishing, to avoid any annoying noise. Also check if the size of your car is OK for the parking. The hotel used to offer a promotion of 3 nights at the price of 2, ask if it is still available.”
