Great central location, very nice clean modern room, friendly and helpful staff and pleasant surroundings. Walking distance to the bus station and we found the local bus to be a great way to get around if you don't want to spend the money on car rentals and are happy to walk a little off the main roads. We also got... More

Great hotel with lovely staff, right in the city centre of Willemstad. Spacious rooms with every needed comfort. There is a small garden pool, free to use 24 hours a day, which is a great plus. The breakfast is tasty and more than enough per person. Ine, the lobby Manager, can also contact you with great personal guides to lead... More

Pls note that it seems that once a month an extremely loud night club sets up next door to the hotel on a Friday night. I was there for this. Should you find yourself in this position, pls be aware: 1. earplugs, which the owner says (see the review comment by the manager on 14 April 2012) they provide for... More

First of all , I want to apologize for the bad experience with that "booming "night! I really can not explain why things went the way they did; We didn't act the right way. That's for sure. The positive thing is that you visit our hotel in September 2013, and you put the review on February 2014, but in December... More

Pros: Good location, helpful and friendly staff. Good cost benefit. Our group booked three rooms, and they were very different from one another. One had a complete kitchen and huge balcony and one was a small regular room, but they were all nice. Cons: One of the rooms had a bad smell in the bathroom. Night watchmen wasn't very friendly....

This is a great bed and breakfast as well as a hotel nestled away in Punda overlooking downtown Willemstad. The rooms are tastefully decorated for the price. The service is exceptional and the value is great. The manager is really knowledgable, helpful, and very upbeat to converse with. The location is good and security is exceptional. The cleanliness is super... More

Great accommodations. The hotel is a 2 minute walk to the floating market downtown and an easy bus ride away from amazing beaches. Rooms have air conditioning and access to a gorgeous pool. The staff was extremely helpful with directions and maps. Rooms are minimalist, but no complaints!

Good place within very easy walking distance of all highlights of Willemstad. Nice, very clean and big room, good bathroom. Friendly and good service. Two things keep this from a 5: the room I was in looked onto a blind wall and was thus a bit dark, and while the hotel has a very nice garden and dipping pool it... More

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in March in an apartment facing the main patio/ courtyard area. I travelled as a single woman and was glad that I chose an apartment where I could cook meals instead of eating out every day. The rooms were very clean and had both fans and A/C. I was NEVER too hot.... More

Across from the floating market, on the edge of Scharloo/Waaigat, we stayed at this lovely little hotel. It has a small number of very comfortable rooms surrouding a small inner garden with flowers, trees and a small pool for relaxation. All main attractions are within walking distance and after a night on the town this hotel is an oasis of... More

Great location and frendly staff. Rooms are clean and bathroom is with warm shower. 5min walk and you reach New Market where you can eat breakfast less than 3$, pancake and coffee. If staff arrenge barbeque dinner at hotel, you should go there. At 25$ you can eat and drink as much you like.
