It's great for one night on either end of your trip. Be aware if you have luggage that there are a lot of steps to go up. We had 100 pounds of bags to drag! View was great. Room was clean. I left too early to try the breakfast.

Totally unsafe area you literally need to get through dead bolted doors To enter and trust me you'll be glad they are there because the area is absolutely terrible right next to a drug house and a brothel after 8:00 forget about leaving my husband and I were followed by a local hiding behind trees the rooms are disgusting and...

To get to this marvelous, charming guest house you have to climb a lot of stairs! The stairs are spread over several landings so it's not too bad. Once you arrive you will be greater by two charming inn keepers. The wife has the best laugh! The rooms are simple and comfortable and clean. The breakfast included with the room...

Be sure to get there before dark, otherwise, they'll close the gate and you won't be able to get inside. If you have a roller bag, be prepared to hand carry it up many steps, there were maybe about 50 to our room. No elevator or escalator. There is a free breakfast from 8:00am to 9:30am everyday. You can select...

stayed one nite. room was clean, view nice. But 80 steps (I counted them) from the street to our room! Our cabdriver told us he waited in the car with the doors locked because the neighborhood was bad.

Ok for a day as a layover. Some rooms don't have their own bathroom (ours did), but the room we rented was small and had no windows, either in the bedroom nor the bathroom. The people that run the Galleon House are very friendly. St. Thomas is a little rough at night, but if you just want to get some...

We stayed here prior to renting a catamaran and setting sail to explore the islands. The room was exactly what we needed: a comfy bed, a nice bathroom and air conditioning. Only a short walk to downtown and the open-aire market. Coffee was ready when we woke up. Breakfast is served between 8-9:30 and had 3 menu choices: bacon or...

I stayed here as part of an island hopping trip and needed somewhere central for ease of access to and from the airport for a one night stay. Right in the centre of Charlotte Amalie smack in the middle of the historic sites and within walking distance of plenty of places to eat and drink by day. At night the...

Nothing fancy, but just how we like it. Clean and tidy and friendly. A good breakfast and a small swimming pool. Close to town, but quiet. A short taxi ride from the ferry dock. We would definitely stay again. Thanks, Alan and Sue
