I highly recommend The Ritz Studios. The price for the decor, styling, modern-look and spaciousness of the rooms is unbeatable. It is also very well located in relation to down-town: just a 10 minute walk. The ladies at the front desk are also very helpful and kind. My only observation is that the poolside-bar was closed before the time they... More

The pool bar is open for breakfast from 7-11 with the kitchen closing at 10:30 and again for Happy Hour from 5-6 with 1/2 price drinks. And then remaining open until 9pm with the kitchen closing at 8:30 pm. I will investigate to see why this is... More

I stayed in The Ritz Studios for 10 nights, and to give it away right at the start: I would go there again! First, the whole place is really beautiful and within walking distance of all the interesting places in Willemstad. Furthermore, the staff was really friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and everything is working perfectly. No warm... More

I needed a place for the weekend and after visiting 7 hotels to compare prices, I landed at Scharloo with the Ritz.

I stayed there for 3 weeks and it was a good stay until the last week. Let's start with the positive part: - Hotel is located in the heart of Punda, close to the floating market and so on.

Our stay in the Ritz Studios was quite pleasant. Close to town, the kitchenettes have a few dishes and a refrigerator as well as a stove if you want to eat in the room (we didn't find much in the way of grocery stores within walking distance, but those who rent a car might be able to).
