The following were the pros and cons: Pros: - Pleasant, helpful and well- mannered front desk staff - We were the only ones in... More

Defiantly would recommend this hotel to anyone, very clean and good service. Will be back soon, shame to be back home. The area is great with a great view from outside the window, we even had our own en suite with a beautiful bath inside, loved every bit of it. Overall excellent!

I recently stayed at the Kapok Hotel in Port of Spain for business. The friendly professional staff provided consistent service. We traveled with valuables due to our business trip an we were confident that our belonging were safe. Their service exceeded all areas of hospitality, from housekeeping, bellman, front desk and servers at the Tiki restaurant made our trip comfortable.... More

Great pizza restaurant with very good value and well made cocktails. Friendly staff. Rooms good size with nice design features. Clearly a business hotel which suited us very well... More

The level of professionalism displayed by the Kapok Hotel staff was outstanding. I stayed there on a business trip during the height of the Carnival season despite this, their quality of service remained unaffected. Every facet of my stay at the Kapok Hotel was perfect infused with smiles and laughter. Everyone made their work seem effortless. The front desk, who... More

The Kapok worked well for us. We found it well-run, clean, quiet, and comfortable, although the rooms (we had two) were a bit small. We had chosen it because (at the right time of day) we could walk to Woodbrook from there. The restaurants were excellent, including the 8th-floor view of the city. A couple people at the front desk... More

Spent Old Year's night here since there were no available rooms at nearby hotels. The lobby and Kava restaurant on the ground floor were assumed to be representative of the rooms, but we were in for quite a surprise. Pros - Good service at Kava - Helpful waitress at breakfast -Decent view from the room (6th floor), much improved from... More

We came here for two nights before going on in Trinidad. This hotel was recommended as a locally owned boutique hotel which we like. The rooms were reasonably spacious and our room had a refrigerator and coffee maker and excellent wifi (free--to boot). The service was friendly and excellent. They had no problem helping us with dinner reservations at other... More

We did not experience any problems with this hotel. Quite the opposite. The staff was very attentive, always had a smile and would personally greet you. Heath from the KAVA lounge made you feel like a family member. The pizza and lamb burger were the best we ever had. The KAVA lounge has indoor and outdoor seating. The breakfast buffet... More

I had problems with the shower shooting hot and cold water throughout the entire shower (changing temperatures) which made my friend and I sick. I would have thought that in a case like this, I would have been moved to another room but the front desk representatives did not seem concerned. The housekeeping staff was more concerned and even took... More
