Una Noche Mas
Travel Blogs from Montevideo
Our only plan for Monday was to get ourselves to Uruguay's capital city, Montevideo, early enough to make it to the Brazilian consulate, but due to a small banking mishap on Saturday, we were forced to wait until the bank opened in Monday at 1pm in Colonia. My reaction times had not been quick enough for the ATM …

I woke up and spoke to old mate for a while and then he explained to me that Uruguay would be playing in one of the worlds oldest and most historic stadiums on the 4/6 but this would be after my pre booked flight.
I now contemplated changing my days so i could go (this would be a bad decision later - you will see)

... to generation.They are pushed down to the end because they are poor,they don't have decent clothes,they don't have fancy i-phones,they smoke,they spit,they talk rough so naturally they must be hidden from view.How dare we allow them to integrate with the “haves”,it would “bring down the look” of the promenade……”keep them away from us!” The Lycra covered runners don't run that far.It goes without saying that ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsUna Noche Mas Montevideo
Una Noche Mas is a lovely B and B in a perfect location in Montevideo. It is in an area near everything you would need like supermarkets, restaurants, laundry, but far enough from the city center to feel much safer. There is always a fire in the fireplace, hot coffee and tea available, and very friendly and hepful hosts, Eduardo and Carla. The rooms are warm and beds comfy. The showers are touch and go with regards to hot water, but this may be due to timing. My family of five stayed here for 6 nights total, on and off, and felt comfortable each time we returned. We would have liked better kitchen facilities for us to use, but there are dishes and a microwave as well as a barbeque indoors for grilling meat. My only complaint was that we were in a tiny room with five beds, much too small, but quite warm and cozy.
