Karen and Sergio showed me a wonderful time in Montevideo--I seriously wanted to extend my stay, but it wasn't possible... The house itself is in a perfect location in the centre of historic Montevideo, and is modestly but stylishly and adequately apportioned. The hosts were so full of information and suggestions--Karen has expanded her house manual to a full book,...

My husband and I stayed here for just two nights while travelling around Uruguay and couldn't have enjoyed it more! The owner, Karen, was an excellent host and had so many great recommendations for us. So much better than staying at a hotel because you get to experience the city from the perspective of a local. The Sirena room was...

Casa Sarandi is a wonderful guest house - The location is great, the rooms are spacious, and you'll find everything you need in the home itself, from cooking supplies to great wifi. However the real gem here is the host, Karen, an expat living in Montevideo for the past 15 years, who runs Guruguay. com. Upon arrival, she'll arm you...

This is a fabulous place to stay in Montevideo! A couple blocks away from the very center of town and only about 3 block from the spectacular waterfront! Karen is the hostess with the mostest! She is so friendly and helpful. She engenders a true feeling of caring and makes one feel very welcome. And Sergio is a super chap...

Super helpful hostess will make your trip more enjoyable. There are some very good restaurants within 2 blocks and more within five. Lively pedestrian Sarandi Street (at least during the day) is just a block away. And you'll love the antiquated cage elevator that ascends the core of the building. There is noise from the busy bus stop out front.

We had a lovely stay in this guest house. It is located in the old part of the city near the pedestrian walk. There are many wonderful restaurants nearby. We were warned that it could be lonely late at night and not to walk with any valuables but it really seemed like a lot of other inner city areas I...

Casa Sarandi is located in the Old City but just a block from the popular pedestrian street and a 5 minute walk from Plaza Independencia. The rooms are very comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked. What sets Casa Sarandi apart, however, are the owners. Karen is a great host, providing advice every day on what's going on around...

Worth every penny for Karen's advice alone! The guesthouse itself is great: comfortable, well-equipped, centrally located... But the highlight was the guesthouse owner, Karen, who runs an amazing blog (and guidebook) about what to see and do and eat in Montevideo. She has great taste, is very on top of the local scene (especially the local music scene, as she...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Sarandi is a 1930s style art-deco guesthouse and loft in the heart of Montevideo's Old City - the Ciudad Vieja in Spanish. The guesthouse is a block from the Colonial Square and the Cathedral and two blocks from Uruguay's premier theatre, the Solis and from the rambla - a 25-km long promenade, great for biking and running. The owners Karen and Sergio have lived in Montevideo since 2000, love the city and the national music scene and will help make your stay unique with their daily recommendations -most of which are walking distance-- for things to do, places to go, the most unusual places to eat and drink and the most interesting music and culture Montevideo should be more famous for. Karen runs Guru'Guay, a much-visited website on Uruguay, and now author of a best-selling guidebook "The Guru'Guay Guide to Montevideo". The guest house is very intimate - just two guest rooms. Both rooms have hardwood floors, antique furnishings and original art. Besides your guest room and private bathroom, Casa Sarandi offers a cosy living room and a fully-equipped modern kitchen. ... more   less
