Location was great if you like to be close to Ciudad Vieja or 18 de Julio which is the Main Street in Montevideo. Hotel staff were great. Bathroom size ok but could have done with a bit of cleaning of the shower wall tiles. Bed was big. Buffet breakfast was not the best I've had. The usual media lunas (little...

I needed a room with good wifi to work remotely for the last two days on my trip to Montevideo. After a quick search on TripAvisor - nice mobile app guys! - I chose Orpheo Express and went there right away, no reserve, nothing. The people on reception were great: at first they offered a higher room price, but when...

The hotel has a good location and a good price. The room has a good size and a comfortable bed. The breakfast could be better, with more options and the replacement more efficient. If you are looking for a budget option in Montevideu, it is good.

Comfortable well appointed room, with modern bathroom. Good use of space. Storage space a little tricky as rail for hangers was so high we could only just reach. Hotel had a nice breakfast area and ample breakfast choices. Staff very helpful. Good central location. Walk to buses, shops and restaurants and major sites.

The hotel is in a good location near plaza independencia - take a stroll through the old town to the El Puerto market. A Great Uruguayan shop is at constitution square as well. Despite the hotel promising parking is included online, it is not! But the staff are nice and the bar is also a nice thing to do before...

This is a adequate business type hotel chain. It's fine, but below the minimalist exterior is minimal function and service. The location is central, but feels really sketchy. It's just a bit run down surrounding the hotel. Lot of problems with the room. Air conditioner stopped working, toilet flush broken, bidet broken, lights flickering, it goes on... They took our...

I came here because I had problems with the previous booked hotel. We stayed at an upper floor which was very nice because it's a busy street. Good bed and extra bed. The shower was amazing! The room is simple and clean, small but ok for the price and our needs. Breakfast is ok, they have bread, medialunas, cheese, coffee...

Cheap, well localized and clean. You'll be near the downtown, teatro solis, 18 julio and confeteria facal. The restaurant is very simple but You'll find good and cheap chivitos, pizzetas e tortas. Our room was small and functional. Recomended!!

I recently spent 2 nights at the Orpheo Express. The hotel is centrally located, reasonably priced, and the staff are courteous and efficient. Breakfast is average but substantial. I recommend this hotel.
