I'll start by saying that I don't usually write reviews unless something is really off. That's exactly what this hotel was. I walked in, super excited and ready to check-in. The lady at the front desk ignored me and continued talking to her friend. I waited for their conversation to end and for the friend to step aside before I... More

This hotel I found after looking for various budget options here. It is not easy to find budget accommodations in Aruba and after hours of research, I found Talk of the Town to be perfect. It has a central location and hence every part of the town is accessible. The guests in the hotel were very friendly and polite and... More

Stayed here on business for 3 night. Rooms are a little dated, but comfortable and clean. Aircon was noisy though. Good nights sleep. Food was ok, but predictable. The kitchen isn't brilliant, sometimes the fries seemed old. Bar staff sometimes pre-occupied amongst themselves. But, everything said this is still a very good hotel, and very convienient for the airport.

We stayed one night at Talk of the Town on our way from Bonaire back to the USA and wanted a place close to the airport and our room was showing signs of age. Paint was peeling, door did not shut tightly and could see light around two edges, bath room fixtures were old and very worn, and overall it... More

Ask for one of the renovated rooms, they are close to the road so some road noise but are much nicer. Hotel is close to the airport so you will hear the planes landing and taking off.Free parking and Wifi.Don't expect luxuries here, go to a more expensive property if you are looking for that.

We ended up not even checking into this hotel. The hotel is some distance from the downtown area - certainly a long walk or taxi ride in the heat. It is also located at the end of the runway of the airport and there was considerable noise from jet engines as they got ready to take off. There may in... More

We just recently stayed at this hotel…..We have 2 small children and when we checked in, there were no towels in our room. We politely asked the front desk for some towels and were refused as they stated, "we are really busy right now do to the hotel fully booked, don't expect towels tonight…maybe tomorrow." We received towels next day….wow... More

Near airport, free parking cross the street, beach, restaurants, etc. just cross the street. Only one person work in the front desk, wait long time for check in. Breakfast is good and complementary. Free WIFI.

Welcome to one of Aruba's little secrets. (Not anymore!) The Talk of the Town & Beach Hotel was a great way to end a wonderful vacation on "one happy island," Aruba. After spending 4 nights in the high rise section of the island, we wanted something a little less crowded. We found it. The Front desk was manned with a... More

This hotel is a good option in Aruba. It is very near the airport, but far from the nicest beaches and the shopping area. Anyway, you will need a car to move around the island. It is no so big, but the best beaches are far between each other. Apart from this, the air is extremely hot in Bonaire, so... More
