A great little hotel. Alejandro and his colleagues were extremely polite and friendly. They were more than happy to give their time and help for any question we had and any question they thought we might have.

It's an old hotel, so it's a little worn around the edges in places, but that makes it so much more interesting than your boring clinical modern hotel. The antique working lift is worth the money alone.

The mattress however was new and we wished we could take it home. Worth getting one of the rooms with a balcony if you can. Recommend the place highly to anyone staying a few nights in the town.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple

This is a lovely old place, full of charm and character, run by very friendly people who go out of their way to help. It's also in a perfect location, just on the edge of the old city but within easy reach of the new city, which is a better place to be after nightfall. Really not expensive. Good WiFi. Good showers. All good really. I feel I was very lucky to have stumbled across it.

We stayed here for 3 nights in Montevideo.

Great hotel in an old building with an old fashioned iron clad lift which is an experience itself.
We requested a room on the sixth floor which has an amazing balcony with views of the rooftops of the old city. Rooms are clean but a little on the smaller side.

Staff are all very friendly and informative. Great location just around the corner from Plaza Independencia.

No breakfast but free coffee in the morning.

Highly recommend staying at Hotel Palacio, perfect spot for trip to Montevideo.

Hotel Palacio has to be one of the best budget hotels we've ever stayed in! It's historic, quaint, has an amazing elevator, and our room on the top [6th] floor had a lovely terrace with views that allowed us to absorb the city. Add in its unbeatable central location. Best of all was its wonderful Spanish-speaking staff, all of whom helped us immeasurably with local bus routes and even loaned us an adaptor for our phones.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for one of the two sixth-floor rooms with terraces.

We stayed here for one night on the recommendations from Trip Advisor. We couldn't believe how centrally located it was to all the fun things in Montevideo. We also couldn't believe how inexpensive it was. While the old port area is a little run down and sketchy at night, we felt like it was a good place from which to launch our exploration of the city. The small room on the sixth floor had a huge balcony and view of the surrounding area. While it's not new and shiny, this place has charm and the staff was very friendly.
