Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.

  • This stadium is one of a kind, still bears it's old and classic architecture way back since 1930. A lot of history is attached to this stadium. Never to forget that it hosted the inaugural edition of World Cup..,!!
  • Its the best soccer stadium that you are going to find here in Uruguay.
  • The stadium is surrounded by green areas. You will enjoy walking around.
  • It is the home of the first World Cup competition in 1930!! Worth to see!!!
  • The game, if you happen to be in he lower section is almost impossible to watch and is only shown in a "small" and old screen, completely outdated.
