It is a really nice place to stay alone or as a couple. The room is simpel, but very clean. But pick one where you have a small terrace. The staff of the cleaning department is so friendly that you will start your day with a smile. Ans the manager / boss is really commited. There is a swimming-pool and... More

I highly recommend The Ritz Studios. The price for the decor, styling, modern-look and spaciousness of the rooms is unbeatable. It is also very well located in relation to down-town: just a 10 minute walk. The ladies at the front desk are also very helpful and kind. My only observation is that the poolside-bar was closed before the time they... More

I stayed there for 3 weeks and it was a good stay until the last week. Let's start with the positive part: - Hotel is located in the heart of Punda, close to the floating market and so on.
