The hotel is located in the center os the city! Closer to many historical and beautiful places. The staff are kind and polite. The rooms are fresh and clean. The hotel is very good. It's familiar too. The price is cheap but the quality is the best!

I flew to Montevideo the third week of August and booked Hotel Alvear online, I thought for three days, but ended up having to stay in town until after Labor Day, and kept adding one or two more days during my first week. Altogether, I stayed for two weeks. Having family in Montevideo, this is my second hotel stay in...

The Alvear Hotel is conveniently located near the main shopping street, close to shops and restaurants, and within walking distance of the old town. The area is safe with shady parks nearby to relax in. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Staff are helpful and friendly.

I stayed a whole week in this place. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by a friendly staff ready to help me all the way (which is very Uruguayan by the way). I got my room on the cheap so I wasn't surprised that my room had no view. That was OK. I wasn't there for the view....

Well located in a safe and central area of downtown Montevideo, this hotel offers confort without luxury; although the facilites are a bit outdated, everything worked perfectly. Tasty breakfast, polite staff, and a "bargain" price. If you are travelling on a budget but still want some comfort and privacy, this can be an excellent choice.

I stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. I got a good rate when booking this hotel and I found the accommodation was much beyond it's value. The hotel is located along the main avenue of the city and it is easy to walk along the main street to both directions. For the old town, you can either...

We arrived very late after a long day of travel. The front desk was very nice and welcoming even though it was close to 4am. All we really did was sleep here but it was very clean. Rooms are very small, I could see it being difficult if you were more than one person staying for more than one night......

Very nice hotel, well located in the heart of montevideo, near to many tourist spots, next to pharmacies, restaurants, shops and access to other parts of the city. Great breakfast, tasty and varied. It offers free parking. Quiet rooms, perfect to sleep. The hotel keeps a vintage style, for some this may sound like old. For me there! I love...
