We had an excellent stay at Pedro's apartment in Montevideo. He responded very quickly to all of my questions before and after we arrived. Finding the apartment was easy with his directions. The apartment is located right in the heart of Montevideo's Ciudad Vieja, an extremely convenient location with everything one might want nearby (coffee, pasties, grocery, pharmacy, banks, etc) near the Plaza Independencia and Plaza Constitucion. Transportation by foot, Uber or bus was a breeze. Pedro has a great deal of helpful information in his listings which we really appreciated. He was very flexible with the meeting time and check out time and was there for both check in and check out right on schedule. The apartment was clean and had absolutely everything we needed. He went out of his way to make sure everything was ready for us. It's true the bathroom is small but that was not a problem at all, and we're not exactly small people either. The views from the apartment are breathtaking. We loved seeing cruise ships, ferries and cargo ships come and go from the 16th floor. The building is from the late 1950's and has a characteristic appearance from that era that was really fun and an interesting contrast to the newer modern buildings the gorgeous older buildings nearby, plus it was very safe and secure with a 24-hour doorman and friendly residents. I have nothing but positive things to say about Pedro as a host and about this very affordable, down-to-earth, comfortable apartment. Our 3-night stay was awesome. Gracias, Pedro!
First of all, I can't say enough about Pedro. He was very helpful from beginning to end. Communication was super easy. The apartment is located at the Gate to the Old City (my favorite part of the city.) The building is on Plaza Independencia where you will also find the Presidential Palace, offices and Teatro Solis which has a great lineup throughout the year. You can walk to the theater from you're own pied-a-terre in Montevideo! There are taxis and buses available 24 hours a day. The building has a doorman and is very safe. The apartment overlooks all of Ciudad Vieja and the water surrounding it. There are truly amazing views day and night including of course the sunsets over the water. The apartment is one of the best equipped apartments I've stayed in here. There are restaurants, shops and museums everywhere all around the building. I highly recommend staying with Pedro.
