Talk of the Town Hotel & Beach Club
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Oranjestad
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I spent one night at this hotel since it is the closest hotel to airpot. I was in transit to Venezuela and had to spent on night in Aruba. Most of hotels are in the Noord and Palm Beach areas, or in Orangestaad downtown. This hotel is a very good choice, since location is very close to airport but far away from the hotel zone.

Hotel is a well maintained infrastructure, and offer a very familiar and cozy experience. Personnel is very friendly. Ladies at reception and boys at the bar are very polite. There is good food at restaurant and also an ATM at the main lobby.

PROs
Close to airport
Clean and comfortable
Very familiar and recommended for families with children
Good food

CONs
Price is higher if compared with other hotels with better infrastructure and services
Far away from the hotel zone and downtown
Food options are few ones

I stayed here i think three times on business it almost in the middle of the island on the main road real close to the airport breakfast was great the Apartments were not as nice as the rooms but if you want a good place to stay lots of nice counter help parking a little tight but fun place to stay you wont get board here I had One small complaint or suggestion dont use the outside service to do the laundry other than that i will stay here again and enjoy every minute of it.

Room Tip: for quiter room dont get on east side by apts very load traffic

I was concerned after reading so many bad reviews, but we needed to stay over the night to catch a plane back to the U.S. the next day.
We were shown to a large clean room with 2 double beds. The bath was clean. The air conditioner worked well. The sandwiches at the restaurant were delicious. I would certainly stay here again gladly and I do need a clean room with a working air conditioner.
The room was clearly renovated so if there are still non-renovated rooms, request a renovated room and you will be very pleased.
The breakfast buffet did not have the sausages all you reviews spoke about, but was tasty with date beard and cream cheese.
One note- the bar and LOVELY pool area are in the center of the hotel. The music is LOUD and not turned down until 11pm. If you are not a partier and want to get up to dive early, this could be a deal-breaker. Also, bed is VERY hard with flat pillows. Some people may like this but it was too hard for me.

Room Tip: I do not see the problems mentioned in other reviews. I stayed in a clean renovated room and it was...

Due to some scheduling glitches, I had to book into this hotel at the last minute. The staff at Talk of the Town were friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and secure. The A/C worked beautifully. The premises were very clean and bright. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I recommend this hotel to anyone who might not want to pay for a Sheraton, but who still enjoys excellent service.

I just returned from a week at this hotel that I booked very last minute through an agent. I knew from previous tours to Aruba (staying at other accommodations) what to expect from this hotel and knew in advance that it wouldn't equal a Renaisance or a Marriot, but I am sure that guests are treated more personal at TotT than if you would be staying at one of the big name hotels. The rooms (in my case a superior room) where quite standard but that's enough if you're only using your hotel room to sleep in. The staff is great and friendly!
