If Point a Pitre were not such a mess, more people would be happy with this hotel. The staff goes out of their way to be helpful, the rooms are nice (if small), breakfast excellent. Public transportation is within easy walking distance, as is a decent car rental agency and several travel agencies. There are several nice-enough restaurants within a... More

Just back from Island jumping in the Carib. We loved the hotel. Clean, excellent wifi, and great location. We were let in to our room 5 hours in advance with no extra charge! And the lovely lady, Barabara, cleaned all our stuff in a few hours.

Our room was small and old but clean. It was nice to have a small balcony, even when shared with the neighboring room. The breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel is good if you are going to the ferry terminal, which is about a 10-15 min walk away. It's also close to the main square, and the... More

The good: cheap, near the ferry, 15 minutes from the airport, GREAT continental breakfast included, friendly staff speak some english. The less good: in a rundown borderline area you won't want to walk at night, dumpy and tiny lobby, ugly building, dark narrow halls with small roo s gives a feeling of being in a bunker, uncomfortable beds, no chair,...

Located on a street surrounded by prostitutes. My credit card was skimmed minutes after I paid the hotel bill. I have strong reasons to believe it was done by the hotel staff. The mattress and pillows are terrible. The AC does not work well. Balcony is shared with another room. The room smells mold. Although there is no other hotel... More

We stayed here 1 night. We only booked this hotel because of its location. Its a 15 min walk to the ferry. Room was clean but nothing special. Friendly staff. Aircondition worked fine. Not a nice neighbourhood but for 1 night it was ok. Very expensive though.

We choose to stay at this hotel despite the poor reviews for the same reason all the other reviewers did - because it is the only choice for an overnight stay close to the ferry terminal! I don't understand this, but it is the situation. When we checked in, the lobby was a small dark room with the receptionist tucked... More

I booked this hotel in fear and trepidation having read some of the previous reviews, but I needed a handy base for the ferry port. I found no fault of the hotel. I stayed 2 nights in room 214 and it was clean and comfortable. There was a good breakfast choice. Yes, after dark it is not a pleasant neighbourhood,... More

Probably like most guests in this hotel, we booked a one night stay in order to catch a morning ferry to one of Guadeloupe's small islands. To this extent, St John Perse's location is convenient, at a 10 mins taxi ride to the ferry terminal. A shared taxi can be arranged by the hotel staff. This is where the hotel's... More

Photos are from the hotel in her heyday, pretty outside. A colleague and I both had very cramped rooms, one air con unit was very poor. Fairly clean but run down, main plus is proximity to airport, besides that, there are no nearby restaurants or really any good shops, just more tacky stuff. We explored several squares and streets, but... More
