A great buy with everything you need to know about Montevideo! The house is a charming 1930's house. I had a comfy big bed, with ensuite and even a... More

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,... More

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... More

many thanks to Karen the owner who provided us with loads of information on things to do, many off the main tourist map. we managed to catch a fair few nights of live music and an old fashioned milonga that we would never have known about if not for her. the accommodation is spot on, and we got to share...

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... More

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.

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
