I stayed here for two nights with my father whilst visiting Montevideo. This hotel is fine as a place to rest your head for two nights, but I would look to stay somewhere else if you are planning on visiting for longer. The rooms were very spacious, but the decor looked tired, with chipped wood and scratched furnishings in places. The breakfast was very limited, with scrambled eggs and potatoes being the only hot food options. There was also a bizarre issue in my father's room, with the safe not being attached to the wall. He proceeded to imitate walking out of the room with the safe in his hand, which did not seem to faze the member of staff present with him at the time! An alternative room was promptly sourced for him. The main positive was that the reception staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English.

We just spent several nights at this hotel and I would not recommend it. It is in an area that has fallen into terrible disrepair, and while it seems like it may be turning, it may take another 10 years for it to turn. I did not feel safe walking around the neighborhood, and there were people doing drugs outside the front door. When I told that to the front desk (which was never manned by more than one person, who often was not overly helpful), I was told that there was nothing they could do about it. The building itself was once a landmark, but doesn't look like it is in great shape, and has had minimal work done on it, so that the Wyndham can call it edgy. In reality, it's pretty dumpy. I have real concerns about the security. If you want to stay at the Wyndham, it has two other much nicer properties in Puerta Carretas, which is where most of the nice hotels are located.

As a Canadian traveler with large family, this boutique hotel in central Montevideo was one of the finest places I have stayed at. The front lobby staff (especially Laura) were incredibly helpful and English was very good. They are available on whatsapp to answer questions prior to your visit. The roof top breakfast dining was really great spread with hot meals. The location is generally safe and walking distance to the central commercial district. The famous Palacio Salvo and Plaza Independencia are a block away. Lots of eateries (Americano Cafe really good), pharmacies, laundry, and convenience stores. The history of revitilzation of this hotel reminded me of the incredible boutique hotels of Queen St W in Toronto (a bit like Drake Hotel with a more family feel). The rooms are not large as it is an older building conversion but offers a comfortable and clean upgrade.

My staying in the hotel was unfortunately awful.
The hotel is dirty.
There was a cockroach on the hallway of the rooms, hairs on the bed, yellow stains of the pillow and on the towels, bird fezzes on the window (that I cleaned for health issues) and the drain of the bathtub was clogged.

I am writing this review because I want to be refunded entirely for the nights I spent on the hotel.

I am on a business trip and I don't have the time to find a new hotel, this is causing a huge problem on my work.

Overall a nice stay at Esplendor. I was part of a large group from Canada staying for a week. Unfortunately very few of us spoke Spanish so language barriers existed with front desk but we made the most out of using Google translate.

Rooms were clean and spacious. The air conditioning is controlled by a remote, which I did not find until a few days into the trip. Lots of natural light in the room and the bathroom was nice. The bedroom dis have blackout curtains thankfully.

Breakfast was included and sufficient. It was the same thing everyday but it was good enough for a start of day meal. Lovely views of the sea from one side of the room and patio.

I did not have time to try the pool as we were too busy with other things.

The area around the hotel is like many other major cities I've been too. Be smart about your surroundings and travel in groups if you are concerned. We had no issues with safety while there. There is a grocery store a few blocks away from the hotel and made for a great place for supplies like bottled water and snacks.

Overall a decent stay, except our floor lost power somewhere in the night on our last night. Hard to get ready without power

A bit quirky.
Hoteli a reasonable location. Very high ceilings in rooms, so a good temperature and reasonably quiet. Strange layout though.
A bath in the main room just inside the door.
A kettle and posh coffee machine, but never any sign of tea/coffee/milk or sugar being left to go with it? All rather strange.
Comfortable.

The front desk staff went above and beyond to help me make reservations for a bus and ferry. I had difficulty buying tickets online, and they gave their knowledge and time to make it happen, in spite of many issues with the online sites. They didn’t give up! They were also very personable and courteous, always a smile and friendly word.

What I liked Best is the unique style of the building and breakfast on the rooftop. The staff extremely friendly and helpful.
The pool could be a bit better and quieter - they should be signs informing guests about the quiet spa zone. The lift too small.

A beautiful historical hotel, simple rooms, great staff, lots of character, and fabulous location with shopping, restaurants, coffee shops within easy walking distance. The place a little old, but rooms renovated with simple furniture. Occasional smells from old plumbing venting through the drains, and the refrigerator doesn't work at all. Quiet place at night after 11pm when pubs nearby stop live shows.
