Muy lindo apartamento con una vista inmejorable. El edificio es antiguo y poco mantenido pero limpio y con portería 24 hs. La ubicación es perfecta, con buen transporte y en uno de los lugares más lindos de Montevideo.
You're paying for the view! It stops there.
The interior of the place was functional and clean, though simple and dated. Meh, not a problem.
The thing to be aware is that there are additional costs to be aware. One for the security deposit, one for the cleaner, another for the used electricity. I have never had to indicate the amount of power we used in any AirBNB property, but there is always a first.
Overall we felt like a short term tenant in a dodgy apartment paying for things which we should not.
(+) Points : 1. good situation, near beach, beautiful sightseeing over Montevideo, 2. friendliness of the family
(-) Points: 1. Announced as penthouse, but is not a penthouse, as there are people living upstairs and as the appartment is not surrounded on four sides by a terrace ; 2. appartment door was permeable and not enough secured ; 3. Inside smellt stuffy 4. No light in the corridor (on the way to the lift); 5. appartment inside very economic (expenses) and primitive architectured 5. Shower-room very small and primitive 6. Much noise because of the elevator; 6. Terrace is not lightened and appears threatful (because of the neighbouring abandonned terrace) 7. Missing curtains against heat at kitchen window 8. By stormy and rainy weather, rain drops appearing through kitchen ceiling above window; 9. Far too expensive price
Cozy's apartment is a great place to stay in Montevideo. It's spacious for two people, clean and perfectly located in Pocitos right by the Rambla with restaurants, bars, grocery stores and bus stops around. By the way, taking buses to get everywhere in the city is a breeze. Cozy and his family are amazing hosts and very responsive. Electric bill is charged separately and depends on how much energy you spend during your stay, but it doesn't mean it's going to be complicated to calculate. Cozy's mother made everything simple and checking-out was very easy. Great experience!
Cozy es un excelente anfitrión. Me contestó enseguida a las dudas que tuve sobre la casa y estuvo atento antes ya de mi llegada.
La casa es perfecta para una pareja o personas que viajan por trabajo. Las vistas son espectaculares y es una delicia desayunar fuera. La ubicación también es perfecta.
Sólo tiene un único pero y es que si hace temporal, al estar tan cerca de la rambla y al ser un piso tan alto, el viento se hace oír y puede llegar a ser un poco incómodo. Pero es una elección estupenda para la época de buen tiempo.
The flat is small but perfect for a couple.The views are spectacular, we had meals on the terrace nearly every day, only inerrupted by bad weather.
The hosts were understanding and helpful.
Thank you, Enrique and Alma
