    The design and asthetics of the hotel was amazing. However, the best part were the owners, Jeranimo and Sole. They were attentive, helpful, and available whenever I needed them. I would love to stay again.

    Great location in the heart of old town within walking distance of many historical sights. The hotel is immaculate and loving attended to and maintained by the owner, Jerónimo, who is friendly and available to provide directions and suggestions. I’ve stayed at many properties over the years during many travels and this hotel is unique and not to be missed. A true and unforgettable jewel and a wonderful experience.

    I had a wonderful stay at FAUNA Montevideo. The hosts were very helpful with check-in and check-out. They also had nice attention to details that made the stay even better such as water in the fridge, pleasant music in the lounge, drinks, and snacks. The decor of the hotel is great! The location was close to everything I wanted to see, so I could walk everywhere. Overall, great stay! Thanks!
