I like the sense of community - the row of red brick apartments reminding me of the usual street scape, more like living in the neighborhood rather than staying in a hotel. Ideal for business travel - looking to stretch the dollars, as most St Johns NL hotels can be quite on the high range, even for 3-star roadside options.... More

A small group of us, visiting St. John's to attend a concert, chose Hometel because of its special rate and its location. It was also a bonus to stay together in a private 3 bedroom house which offered a good continental breakfast albeit in another part of the row housing complex. Hometel has a number of other perks including free... More

Being from England and marrying a Newfoundland girl can be a daunting prospect in terms of organising 27 travelling guests, but upon selecting the Hometel I was confident. As it turns out, it was just about one of the best decisions that I could have made and was a major factor in how well the wedding turned out. Prior to... More

We enjoyed an excellent week’s stay in the hotel. Staffs were knowledgeable about local things to do; nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms are well set out and well supplied with a coffee machine, hair dyer and iron and ironing board. The location is excellent signal hill and the geo centres are a ten minute walk. The harbour...

The rooms were very clean and everything you would need. Your breakfast is included and the choices were excellent. Very nice atmosphere, and the employees were very pleasant and helpful It was a very quiet part of the city.

Beautiful rooms in a great downtown location. Price cannot be beat!! Buildings have rooms on three floors and ours was on the top floor, so a bit of a hike if you have a lot of bags, as there is no elevator, However, that is a small disadvantage, Room was lovely and very clean, big windows, nice bathroom. Bed is... More

As I found out, St. John's is not a very good place for a mid week getaway, as it is geared mostly towards business travel. I called most major hotels in the downtown core and was getting mid week rates of about $200. I called Hometel and was pleasantly surprised that there rate was less than half. My wife and... More

The hotel wasn't bad. Our room was on the first floor underneath a stair case so when othersame back to their rooms it was loud. The janitors did not clean at all, our room was dirty from the time we got there. Hairs on washroom walls and floors were gross. Im pretty sure the cleaning ladies just changed the towels... More
