It's a pretty average hotel with a great location. The hotel room wasn't the cleanest but the staff was really nice. The breakfast is complimentary and it was really good. I just couldn't get over the small flies in the restroom area and in the bedroom.

Thank you for your review. You point out areas where improvement is needed. This will help us. Because our goal is to be a "great hotel in a great location" as you pointed out. Our breakfast and staff passed muster but the "small flies didn't cooperate". Hopefully the next time you visit you won't have anything but compliments to include... More

I stayed at Le Marcelin Inn every time that I am in Haiti. I will not trade it for anyone. The staff is great. The Breakfast is remarkable, and the price reasonable. I will continue telling people that if you want a fun, secure, reliable, wifi, and pleasant staff please stay at Le Marcelin Inn. My favorite place!

I recently stayed at Le Marcelin during the "Carnaval des Fleurs" and an additional day the following week after the carnival. The staff there is excellent and the service was impeccable. I highly recommend other visitors to stay at this Hotel while visiting Port-Au-Prince.

We stayed at Le Marcelin Inn in March, 2013. The hotel is in the heart of the community, but it is a quiet treasure behind the gate. I didn't eat in the restaurant, and the staff could not speak English, but the hotel was quiet and peaceful. I heard no noise day or night while we slept. It was reasonably... More

I've been a visitor to, and sometimes lived in, Port-au-Prince for over 25 years, and I only wish I had discovered Le Marcelin sooner. This charmingly designed, exceptionally friendly and welcoming small hotel is the answer to this Haiti traveler's longtime prayer despite some bizarre opinions to the contrary on theTripAdvisor site. Unlike some more "famous" properties, which are high... More
