“Kristal Apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Rooms are very comfy and the staff will go to great lengths to make the stay AWESOME. We had breakfast included and everything was very fresh, they will cook it to order. The internet comes and goes so business is hard to do but if you are on vacation that could be a blessing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony. Sitting outside at night is soothing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We spent two weeks in Paramaribo for business, and at first were wary of staying at a location with such little information available for it. When we arrived, we were incredibly surprised! Kristal turned out to be a full-service apartment/hotel, with breakfast provided every morning, lunch placed in your room or sandwiches packed, complimentary laundry, internet and daytime transportation.

The staff was very friendly, and went out of their way to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and clean, and boasted a kitchenette. 24 hour security personnel were on site, and the small number of rooms made it so the staff was able to learn every guests name. I would strongly recommend the Kristal for any future trips to Paramaribo!

Kristal Appartments was recommended by colleagues so I booked there in preference to the Marriott, and it was absolutely the right choice. The place is traquil, quiet with a beautiful garden and incredible tropical flowers grown by the owner Mrs Wong in her garden. All the staff are supremely helpful and friendly and it was easy to ask for help and advice and get exactly what was needed.

The rooms are spacious and well equipped as studios or small apartments with bathroom, kitchen, lounge and bedroom. Everything works and all the furniture is comfortable. There is satelite TV and internet in every room. A welcome package of goodies and drinks is placed in the room for free use by guests. The daily rate (which is less than an equivalent hotel) includes daily laundry service, buffet breakfast and one other meal which is prepared and put in your fridge to eat later. Free drinking water is available (though the tap water in Paramaribo is drinkable), and other drinks can be taken from the fridge an dsigned for at any time.

There's a nice pool and a small gym.

About 3 km from town, staff will call a taxi which will arrive in a few minutes and will take you to town or elsewhere for about 10SRD. The staff helped to arrange a trip to Brownsberg reserve and other trips, restaurants, shopping as needed.

I ended up staying in the Torarica one night because of a delayed flight, and it was a depressing experience after the Kristal Apartments - overpriced, unfriendly, zero atmosphere and ugly.

I cannot recommend the Kristal Apartments highly enough, but please don't all rush there, as I want to be sure there's a room for me when I go back to Paramaribo!
