            The hotel was quite old and not kept up to date for a 4 star hotel. The breakfast was nothing special. But the price was OK.

            Breakfast was definitely the best in the hotel.

            Rooms seem a bit old but comfortable and clean.

            The rooms were quiet and I liked the wooden floors for the allergens. The showers were nice and the breakfast in the morning was very good.

            Only one, we asked for non smoking and got a smoking room

            I really enjoyed the experience, specially because it was very well located, close to San Jose St. (Lots of restaurants) and 18 de Julho Av. Another good point is the staff, wich is very comprehensive.

            In the past, it was a 4 stars hotel. Nowadays, it requests another evaluation. It needs a reform urgently. The air condicioner didn't work in the cold mode. The bathroom was really stinking. I do not recommend it for the ones who are looking for a 4 stars hotel.

            The only area we visited was Old Montevideo which is not far from the Hotel Lafayette. If you are weary of Uruguay food and especially the awful coffee, the Lafayette serves a great breakfast. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

            The big negative is that it is old, and outside of the lobby and breakfast area, in need of refurbishing.The room was too dark and some of the lights did not work. I could not see the instructions for using the safe in the closet, let alone read them.

            The location of this hotel is ok.

            The hotel is not of the standard promised. The room was average but not so clean, the curtains were not clean, the bathroom was very old. I would not stay in this hotel again. The girl in the bar was busy but very rude. This hotel is used by tours.
