    Lovely hotel

    Lovely small hotel, very well appointed. Superb decor. Interesting rooms, each with historic significance and decor celebrating a specific historic Uruguayan figure. Terrific staff. Wifi fine. Clean and with a lovely breakfast, partially buffet and partially served. Well situated for some good restaurants and near Sarandi, the pedestrian street with many shops, etc. Very pleasant experience overall.

    We enjoyed every aspect of this hotel. From our early arrival, and being able to check in early, to the well appointed room, to the sweet breakfast to the helpful staff and great location. We would return most certainly!

    A time machine to a bygone era

    Alma Historica takes you back to a time before you were ever alive. Old world elegance and refinement in a lovely and quiet section of a lovely and quiet city, Montevideo. The building itself is beautiful and has been restored to marry history with modernity. All the little details are very nice, and the service and staff are top notch. Incredibly helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone you meet during your stay will thoughtfully try to make your day brighter and will work to setup any adventure you would like in the surrounding area. Highly recommended for a stay in Montevideo, and a great jump off for visiting nearby Canelones. Enjoy your stay!

    Beautiful restored property in the old city. (Was it a grand home at some point?) Walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants, the Rambla (very long boardwalk along the coast eastward from Ciudad Vieja). Modern conveniences with old-world style. Very friendly and efficient staff. The park across the street was full of magnolia trees in full bloom. I would return.

    I liked this hotel very much. The staff were very courteous, truly attentive, and really set us at ease. For me the room was just perfect, the bed being especially comfortable and I got a very good rest the two nights we stayed. I would have loved to be able to stay for several more days.
