I stayed in Montevideo for four days in March. My major take away is that this is a nice, welcoming city in dire need of good hotels. I also suspect the lack of competition contributes to the relatively poor efforts at hotels that do exist. This one is well located across from the beach and a only a few blocks to the old city, which is quite charming in a colonial south america meets shabby-chic europe kind of way. Anyway, the hotel is in need of a major redo-- the lobby is cold (from a design standpoint) and the carpets in the halls are stained and smelly. The rooms are ok, but the mattresses are desperately in need of an upgrade. Service consistently overlooked things like leaving a breakfast room service menu in my room.
In terms of food, I highly recommend Il Panini, where I had a great Italian meal, and the restaurant attached to the Teatro Soldiz (name escapes me, but the theatre is a major landmark). And make a pilgrammage to the beautiful bookstore on the pedestrian street off Plaza Indepencia. All of these are about ten minutes a way.
