“Stunning Refurbished Apartment in Historic City Center”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014
people found this review helpful

This historic building in the heart of Montevideo's Ciudad Vieja (Old City) has been refurbished into classy, impeccably decorated, spacious and comfortable apartments. Each two-bed two-bath unit (of five total) has two-story ceilings, air conditioning in each room, modern kitchen appliances and bathrooms, and even rooftop terraces to overlook the Port of Montevideo's historic district. Each unit has a touch of local history in not only its original tall windows and rafters, but also in the carefully selected pieces of antique furniture mixed in with the elegant and modern decor. Hardwood floors throughout, regional cowhide rugs and art by local artisans add the finishing touches to these outstanding apartments. A maid service maintains all in top shape.

Located just around the corner from Montevideo's famous Mercado del Puerto (Port Market), these apartments offer walking access to restaurants and galleries as well as the entire central city. The owners, Olenka and Jasper Bethe, an American/Argentine and Danish couple, have lived in Montevideo for many years and are a wealth of information for visitors. Their office is located in the lobby area of the apartment complex, so they are readily accessible and are happy to share their knowledge about all there is to see and do in the capital city as well as in other parts of the country.

They have done an amazing job at providing for every need in the apartments, from kitchen gadgets to wireless internet. We were thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail and comfort the owners clearly put into their investment. But the most impressive was their commitment to ensuring their guests have the most enjoyable stay possible in Uruguay, offering suggestions and helping plan our outings to local attractions, cuisine and entertainment. Our three-year-old son even begged to hang out with them at the office whenever we entered or exited the building!

We would whole-heartedly recommend any of the five apartments in this complex. We can't wait to visit again!
