Wave Hotel is a good hotel for travelers on a budget. It was a bit hard to find, especially since we rented a car and there aren't many street signs. So if you do rent a car upon arrival, as long as you follow the sign for Otrobanda from the airport, it will take you directly towards the hotel. The... More

The people working there were outstanding. Very friendly, very helpful. The location is situated in a somewhat shady area but close to everything. The rooms were fine except the doors are paper thin. The room next to us had the alarm set but nobody was in it to turn it off when it went off at 7:00am. Really bothered us.... More

I stayed here twice in a period of 10 days. At first there were a few minor admin issues, but that was partly my fault as I had to change my plans slightly about 2 weeks before arrival, but this was quickly sorted out. Staff are friendly, helpful and have a good sense of humour. The rooms are big, bright,... More

The room is very basic. Even though online booking site says "Room opens up to a balcony, has memory foam mattress and hair dryer" they only have Two rooms with balcony and bathroom does NOT have a dryer. I don't know where "memory foam mattress" idea even came from - don't ask. When I asked at the front desk the... More

Good value for the price, but nothing too exciting about it. It is clean. Great location! In the center of Otrobanda. They do not have regular cleaning room service all the time. They give blue towels that are ripped. The room is small feels like an European hostel.

Just stayed here one night. It is different, clearly an individual hotel rather than some chain. So if you do not want to spend tons of money and can handle a laid back atmosphere, I can recommend this place. Pros: * very attentive staff * nice big and very clean rooms * good bathroom * good a/c * conveniently located... More

New owners are renovating the old Pelican hotel. The new building is very nice, the rooms are very modern, tad small, but still very nice. Good AC and flat screen tv. The secure box is too small for a normal laptop, it is more for ipads and documents. Service is really nice and well the location is great is like... More
