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

This hotel is on the center of downtown Cayenne. It is a nice, clean hotel. Not fancy, not modern bu everything works. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. Service was good. Internet connection was terrible.

There are not a lot of hotels to choose from in Downtown Cayenne. This one fits the bill if you like them clean, central, reasonably priced. Rooms are not deluxe, but they are spacious, clean, and bright. The pool is available for a dip at any time of day or evening. The breakfast is excellent--lots of fresh fruit and french... More

The location of this hotel couldn't be better, right in the center of Cayenne and next to the police station. It's very safe; all the gendarmes stay here. The staff are all very nice -- everyone from the front desk to the management to the cleaning staff is friendly and interesting. They're apologetic when something goes wrong. That said, there...

The property is superbly located; only 100 metres from the Palmistes, in the centre of town. It is, however, a fairly ramshackle agglomeration of buildings, with widely variable rooms. The rooms are pretty basic, but clean and reasonably appointed. There is a small pool that is welcome in the hot weather, but of a disturbingly cloudy hue that might deter... More
