The apartment is located only 3 blocks from Plaza Matriz, the heart of Montevideo, with its Cathedral and Cabildo (its colonial Government House). Most sights are on your doorstep!
This part of Montevideo, known as Ciudad Vieja (the Old Town) is home to nearly all its historic buildings, museums and sights. It also offers a wealth of bars, restaurants, night clubs, art galleries, shops and more - and Uruguay's most important theatre, Teatro Solís. So most daytime and nighttime activities will be just a short stroll away!
Security in Ciudad Vieja is very good, since 400 CCTV cameras were installed and started operating in December 2013.
Several bus lines stop 2 blocks away, that can take you to any other part of Montevideo.
Secure parking is available nearby for about 14$/24h.

Nice hostel in the Old Town of Montevideo. It's great to experience the spirit of the town although it's maybe not the best neighbour hood and the place itself is very basic. Alfredo helped us with our questions and was there all time.
Nos sentimos como en casa, era muy acogedor y lo mejor la mesa de pin pon hecha en casa! El barrio de noche muy vacio y quizas hasta peligroso, miedo igual salir cuando ya no habia sol. Y la descripcion decia Bed and Breakfast, y no incluye desayuno.
As meninas do MVD Chic Hostel são um doçura, super queridas e atenciosas e a casa antiga onde está o Hostel é bem interessante - o pé-direito do meu quarto deveria ter uns 4 metros e para quem curte arquitetura pode ser um lugar ótimo. No topo há uma terraza de frente ao porto de Montevideo. Como alguns outros hotéis localizados na Ciudad Vieja ele está entre o cool e o decadente. Fiquei em um quarto de frente para a rua, com uma sacada linda, mas para mim foi super, super barulhento. A outra opção de quarto, com menos barulho, era um dormitório na parte interna do Hostel, sem janelas.
La verdad, una experiencia inolvidable!!! Muchas gracias a todo el staff del hostel por hacer el festejo de año nuevo tan único. El edificio esta renovado a la perfección, las habitaciones son amplias y cómodas. El Wifi es de buena velocidad y los lugares comunes siempre están limpios. Te dan todo lo que necesitas y además tienen muy buena onda para recomendar actividades. La zona es bastante centrica, basta con caminar unas cuadras para encontrarse en la peatonal de Ciudad Vieja y de allí son unas pocas cuadras más hasta Plaza Independencia. No dudaría en recomendarselo a amigos y familiares.
This is a cool place! Located centrally in Ciudad Vieja you are in the most interesting part of town for most tourists.
The house is really cool, rooms are clean and the rooftop terrace a very nice place to have morning coffee our evening drinks. Staff is very friendly!
A brilliant alternative if you're after something a bit quieter, intimate and well equipped than a hostel.
There were several new staff members starting the day I arrived. All were very helpful and friendly. The atmosphere is very familial and relaxed. The hostel Is in a beautiful building conveniently located in the heart of the old city. The roof terrace is great and looks straight onto the docks - which I loved although it is a bit noisy. the building is being done up at the moment so constantly being improved. Very speedy wifi connection.
Stayed for one night - the hosts were friendly and the listing was as described on Airbnb. The hostel has a beautiful roof-top view of the port. The neighborhood was great during the day, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops close by.
