Brand new modern boutique hotel in Montevideo’s historic downtown, with an all-day bar and restaurant

The Lowdown

Opened in January 2015, Smart Hotel Montevideo is a boutique hideaway in the heart of the Uruguayan capital’s historic downtown. On the ground floor, the small lobby opens into the gastropub-style Americano bar and restaurant, where a continental breakfast spread (cereals, pastries, coffee and more) is served daily, as well as a hearty international menu and drinks from the well-stocked bar, which stays open until midnight throughout the week. Upstairs, all 65 guestrooms are spacious by Montevideo standards; they’re done in a clean, contemporary style with gray walls, floor-to-ceiling windows and blond wood furnishings. The bathrooms feature stand-alone showers and Smart brand toiletries. Guests have access to a small gym on the 10th floor, and there are great places to ride a bike along the nearby Ramblas and coastline.

In the Area

Join the locals for a stroll or a cycle along La Rambla, the gorgeous beachfront promenade that parallels the coast road. Take a taxi to the Ciudad Vieja (Old City) and have a traditional Uruguayan lunch at one of the parrillas (steakhouses) inside the Mercado del Puerto, which dates from 1868. Then head to boutique winery Bodega Bouza to taste Tannat, Uruguay’s delicious but little-known red wine.

One night, two days in Monte
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Comfortable, clean hotel with supremely helpful staff in old town so walking distance to multiple areas of interest. We took ferry from Buenos Aires to Colonia then coach to Montevideo. Took city bus tour which was a super overview of the city, then ferry back from Monte directly to BA. Was a super side trip and would highly recommend Smart Hotel as a base. Buffet breakfast was perfect.

Lovely hotel, helpful reception staff. Good location. Shame there is no pool. The chairs on the balcony are made of slightly disintegrating fibreglass and made us itchy. Nice breakfast buffet nothing special.

Good situated in the Central City

We liked the room in the 9.th floor with an Overall view. The room was furnished in a very modern light Style. The beds were comfortable soft. The breakfast showed a good variety. You shouldn't hurry in the Morning, there was Time for breakfast until 11h. A cheap laundry was on the same Street, theSame Block.

Comfortable small hotel
Reviewed 2 months ago

This hotel is a small property in a leafy area of Montevideo. The rooms are quite reasonable in size and decor. There is a modern feel. We were on the top floor and had a nice deck with a view of the treetops and a bit of downtown. The neighborhood is convenient to downtown, the riverfront and museums. It is a 10-20 minute walk to the historic quarter and if walking does not seem appealing, Uber and cabs are plentiful and reasonable. The breakfast is adequate. The amenities are limited and appropriate for a budget accommodation. Most of the staff spoke English.
