I read some of the other reviews and perhaps we loved this place so much because it was at the end of an arduous driving trip across Uruguay where the accommodations were frequently minimalist. It's whitewashed exterior with flags flying make it easy to spot just around the corner form the main square in the historic district. The courtyard is...

Lots of character and a beautiful courtyard. Clean and well presented but the upstair's most basic rooms as booked by our South American agent are too small to be enjoyed. Their bathrooms and access to their toilet are too small and problematic. The downstairs rooms looked very nice if lacking some privacy if courtyard doors or street windows were open....

Why not stay in an Unesco World Heritage site? We had a superior double room, very clean, comfortable, and in a stunningly refurbished colonial-era building. The architecture was beautiful, and the garden courtyard was so dreamy, with flowers and night-blooming jasmine scenting the air. The breakfast was good, with a view of the river. Staff were helpful and friendly. Highly...

A lovely historic hotel in the heart of the old town just off the main plaza. It has a lovely courtyard and a beautiful upstairs breakfast room. The rooms are small, but evocative. Very nice staff. It is a bit irksome that they allow small walking tours to come into the courtyard. A bit expensive for what it is. No...

Excellent location in old town. We had a junior suite (last minute upgrade from bookings. com). Beautiful room with comfortable bed and small bathroom. Pretty inner courtyard. Very mediocre and disappointing breakfast buffet with no service: Instant coffee, supermarket bread and non-descript pastries. Few services in the hotel

This hotel is a colonial construction very well cared for. The front desk staff could be a bit more proactive. I asked for a hotel brochure and it took the lady love minutes to locate one. The central, inner, garden, is precious, and the rooms are individually well heated/aired. The location is superb.

Located in the centre of the historical area, this is a pretty hotel with attractive rooms. You really couldn't be more central. The staff were very pleasant & helpful. Breakfast is Ok, just basic. Very handy to local restsurants & of course the historic area.

I stayed in Room 8 looking out on a courtyard garden where a fountain played. The bed was comfortable, the shower recess was double-sized. The staff were extremely polite and kind,.Buffet breakfast was served in an upstairs cafe overlooking the sea. When i stepped out of the hotel on to the cobbled street, I was right in the heart of...

A very charming hotel and well located close the Main square in the old town. Don't expect luxury though. Rooms are large and clean but somewhat basic. Breakfast was somewhat lacking only basic continental completely self service. No staff in attendance at breakfast. There are a number of good restaurants within easy walk. Wi fi is available in lounge area...

I spent just one night with my fiancée in Plaza Mayor, and I can definitely say that the overall experience was very positive. The location is very central close to restaurants and historical attractions. The front desk is very helpful and willing to assist you in finding good spots for dinning out or finding your way around. We had a...
