Used Forty Winks as a matter of convenience as I was visiting Port of Spain. Had a few late nights and wanted somewhere I can get to in a short time. Came in handy as well during the day for a quick refresh point as the city gets hot and humid. Room was neat and clean. Bathroom worked perfectly, albeit... More

Stayed here two nights as a stopover between countries. Rooms are basic but clean with very good shower, slightly on the small side though. Beautiful roof terrace, good breakfast included in price. Staff are the best part, always willing to help and look after you. Walking distance to anywhere in central Port of Spain. Would recommend if looking for a... More

Great place with very good location and very nice, helpful staff. The terrace was very nice, especially in the evening with a little lights and the atmosphere. We enjoyed cheese and wine. The room was clean and cosy. They noticed my food allergy too and I got gluten free breakfast.

The place is nothing like what you see on the website, as it is dirty and sooty, not to mention stuffy. Wouldn't have expected to see roaches anywhere, and they did show up, in our bedroom and in the lobby area. Judging from the pics, you'd expect a polished place, and it needs painting and repairing, and a lot of... More

If someone is intent on doing harm they will. This client is not Allan J nor does he live in the US. He had a bad experience with Immigration ( not unjustifiably so) and arrived set to take revenge. We can only hope that our potential clients will be discerning of the situation. We take the opportunity to again thank... More

Great location with a very nice and helpful staff. I'd definitely stay there if I visited Port of Spain again. Close to the Canadian application center and a great italian restaurant, BUZO Osteria Italiana. Highly Recommended.

We had been in Trinidad and Tobago for 3 weeks traveling to several different locations. We ended our trip in Port of Spain at Forty Winks for three nights. It couldn't have been better. No matter our need we were given support - site-seeing, using their kitchen, getting restaurant reservations, finding uniques souvenirs..... The location was perfect - it is... More

This is the perfect little hotel for a night or two in the city. It is centrally located, clean, safe, and the staff are extremely accommodating. We had a lengthy delay and the staff, particularly Donna, Karen and the night staff, were especially helpful with this hiccup in our plans. The complimentary breakfast is delicious and there is a nice... More

I enjoyed my one night stay at Forty Winks. The room was small but perfectly clean, comfortable and sufficient for my needs. It's central location meant I could walk to the Botanic Gardens for a bit of sight seeing before my onward flight in the afternoon. The breakfast was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful.
