To begin with the good points..This hotel is ideally suited in the heart of the city centre..close to shopping, dining and entertainment. Overall the hotel was safe enough, had electronic locks throughout. The reception was a bit offkeyed, a short walk from the hotel itself, at the entrance tot he hotel there were quite a number of young people hanging... More

If you want to be at the center of Willemstad and don't want a very expensive hotel, this is a good choice. I was a little nourvous when I arrived at the backside of the hotel, because it doesn't look nice. But when you see the hotel from the front it looks great, it is right acros from the floating...

If you just need a place to sleep, then this hotel will do. Apart from rather worn-down rooms and a central location right on the Plaza Brion, this hotel has NOTHING to write home about. Staying here will NOT be a good holiday choice. There are better alternatives in Curacao than this one, and the price difference is often marginal.

When I made my reservation, I specifically asked about the internet, so when I arrived, I was surprised to be told that the internet wasn't working. Arriving after 9 pm on Sunday, I was given little help finding anything to eat. (The one suggestion - the Pizza Hut - closed at 10 pm.) Despite an ice bucket in the room,... More

The location of the Howard Johnson was very good, right across the pontoon bridge in Otrabanda. The rooms were good sized. The view from our room across the water to Willemstad was gorgeous. But that's about all that can be said in its favor. The information sheet which we got from the hotel agent said that the rooms came with... More

The location is central. The cost is one of the cheaper places on the island. I am kind of on the fence about the place. The rooms are nice. There are a lot of teenagers hanging around the entrance to the elevator a lot which isn't great. Security is minimal during the day and 2 old guys at night. There... More
