  • I was fortunate to participate of an event in the Auditorium, and then a cocktail in the viewpoint of the tower. The audience seemed spectacular, and the views from the observation deck better still. I understand that visits are possible during the week at different times depending on the day. The area where is located does not have other attractions.

  • Dependent on the ANTEL communications tower is a modern building of height in which are located various offices of this State body which means national administration of telecommunications. Located about 15 blocks from the center of the city is from the aesthetic point of view very nice. You may say that there are dozens of such towers in Manhattan. And I can share that view. No doubt in the area in which it is stands out for a city such as Montevideo.

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.
