I stayed here on business for 6 weeks in 2012, and was delighted to be posted here for another 6 weeks this year. The Kapok hotel is a very well run, efficient but friendly place, and it was a delight to revisit. It is well-placed for exercise (near Queen's Park Savannah, the largest roundabout in the world!) and for shops...

Hotel staff members were welcoming and helpful. The continental breakfast was pretty good with a good mix of local food. Room was OK but the air conditioning was very, very cold even at the maximum temperature. The floor looked clean but it made under our feet very black when we walked barefooted. There is a nice common area on the...

Kind people at the restaurant and bell boy. Room small but comfortable and very clean. Ideal location, very close to Sabannah park if you are jogging fan and just to walk for relax. Parking available. Wifi connection with acceptable speed.

definitely a great spot for any event around the Queens Park Savannah ...had a great time at kapok for the Sagicor 5k run. This is a hotel I shall definitely go back to. Accommodating and hospitable staff, beautiful view from the 6th floor and the elevators.

This hotel was booked an hour before check in. It's advisable to book directly from the website as opposed to a travel site because there are bonus points for American Airlines and other discounts that you can receive. Unfortunately I found this out after the fact :( The room was quite nice and spacious with a sitting area to one...

Spent a night here, cost me somewhere around $1200-1300, only a suite was available last minute. Beautiful clean suite, very roomy with kitchenette and balcony. The bedroom decor was boring and ordinary and so was the complimentary breakfast which was basic. I won't recommend for a short solo stay.

Overall the hotel is fine but nothing special. Pictures make it look better than it is and their balcony suites state "Overlooking the Queen’s Park Savannah"...which they do not, we had a view of an empty lot and was above a noisy street. Luckily we were there for only 1 night. One of their restaurants wasn't open and other closed...

I have stayed at Kapok before when I used to live in Trinidad. I have also recommended it over the years to others. I used to like this hotel so I booked it for a long weekend trip. I had the Marriott in mind but based on the rates for that particular weekend, it came down to the Hilton or...
