Spent 5 nights at Embajojador in December 2012. Good location near numerous restaurants, nice front desk personnel. Rooms where good but a significant amount of street noise. Breakfast was enjoyable and satisfying. Gym and pool where not worth mentioning or worth using. I would return to Embajador.

I stayed here from December 3rd until the 7th while attending a Union Conference and was pleased with the hotel. The lobby is spacious and the front desk staff efficient during check-in, despite my rudimentary Spanish. I later noted as most guests did that the wifi in the lobby is better than that experienced in the rooms. There are 3...

Very good hotel in Montevideo, close to all attractions, good service and breakfast. Rooms for medium size conventions are excellent and comfortable. The restaurant has an international menu as well as local dishes

I recently spent 8 days at the Hotel Embajador while on a business trip to Montevideo. The hotel is nicely located in downtown Montevideo, and the street 18th of July is only 1 block away, and is a major hub with lots of shops and places to eat within easy walking distance. The Wi-fi in my 6th floor room worked...

The hotel's location is in central Montevideo, which has seen better days. So has this hotel. The staff is very helpful and nice, and that does compensate for some of the hotel's shortcomings. The construction is old and attempts at renovating/upgrading the facilities have been half-hearted at best. And its advertised as a 4 star hotel. No way! More like...

Location is fine, as many other hotels in central Montevideo, not far from the old city and port. Service is not good. Don't expect a good service. Breakfast is poor and the attention given to keep the rooms in good shape is precarious. On my very first day I reported an electric plug and the TV control which were not...

If this was a two star hotel, I´d give it a good to very good rating. But it comes around as a 4-star, perhaps because it has a gym and a pool and serves a decent breakfast with good coffee. But the gym consists of three machines in a corner on the roof top, and the pool is a small...

We arrived without a reservation, late at night. Staff was polite. Rooms are OK. Internet did not work on the fist day (we had to use it at the lobby), it was fixed the next day. Breafast was excellent. We stayed at four hotels during this stay in Montevideo: Klee, Embajador, Ibis and Plaza Fuerte. Embajador had been our best...

The hotel is well located in the middle of downtown but does not meet what I expect from 4 star hotels. Bed clothings are old an stained, although I'm sure they are washed. Wireless from the rooms seldom worked and was told every day they were working in it; somewhat better un the lobby. Don't stay here if you need...

“The hotel has two areas, around two separate lift shafts. I stayed in the rear area, perhaps the darker one. The front shaft leads to rooms that lead to the streets. So the rooms should be a lot brighter there, but probably also noisier”
