The location is very good. Everything else about this hotel is basic and in urgent need of update. Staff was nice and took good care of us. It is far from the airport but it is at the centre of town. If you don't know Cayenne this is a safe choice. Has pool and WiFi.

Spent one night here before leaving Guiana for home. Room was relatively new, I'll note that it looked nothing like the older photos posted here. It might have been updated, or it might be that rooms vary in different parts of the hotel. Wifi was just fine during my stay. My room faced the main street. There was a little... More

It took four rooms and 40 minutes before the indifferent staff came up with an acceptable room at the rear of the complex. The first one shown to me looked acceptable but faced a noisy street and had crumpled, what looked like used sheets. The second one across the corridor had dirty upholstery and the door lock wouldn't work; the... More

Amazonia is centrally located just off Cayenne's main square. Bear in mind this is not a large city. I paid €110 for a standard room including breakfast. This was some kind of special offer. The pricelist stated that the room was €120 plus an additional €12 for breakfast. The room was quite small and definitely not deserving of the price... More

I would not usually stay at a Best Western so my expectations for the hotel were not high. However I got a suite which was comfortable and large. It had a queen bed, sofa, a couple of arm chairs, tv, fridge, a bathroom and a separate toilet. Once you walk out of the hotel you are in the middle of... More

Very very very expensive. I checked out and went to a hotel around the corner, it was half the price and the room was identical. This hotel seems to have a monopoly somehow, other hotels will do they same services for much cheaper. The whole time I was here the Internet was not working, not good for over one hundred... More

There are not a lot of Hotels downtown. Safe, poor wifi, the AC leaked (they did fix it), cheap, some staff had poor English, others were good. It is a good 3* Hotel, and the breakfast is good. I would stay here again if I was paying, but this was a business trip and the Oil Co' were very cheap... More
