The hotel was in a good location, close to the city center and about 15 min and $30 taxi from the airport. ThE garden or courtyard of the hotel was nice and quiet. Aand the pool was cute but small. Overall the hotel was as expected.. Nothing grand . The bed was comfortable enough and had enough pillows and the ac worked perfectly, which u definitely need in that country. The shower was clean and had hot/cold water. The staff was awesome and helpful, especially Michael the chef. The kitchen was being repaired and they only offered buffet breakfast at $15 usd. OverAll I would definitely go to the hotel again if I rented a car and for some crazy reason I would ever go to Curacao again!

Clean well maintained modern rooms surrounding a tropical courtyard with a small pool. When the front desk is "closed" the staff remain easily accessible, often hanging out in the hotel's restaurant/bar. The breakfast buffet is a bit over priced, but is convenient since there are few options for food in the area that early. They usually offer breads, hard boiled eggs, cheese, ham, fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice and coffee. FREE wireless internet.

It's 5 minute walking distance to Avila Beach, it looks private since it is located in a hotel, but is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC everyday but Sunday. It's also one block from the best restaurant on the island The Wine Cellar. It's also a quick walk to Pampus, a chill late-night waterfront bar. It's about a 10 minute to the Punda. Despite some other guest's warning, I never saw any "questionable" folks in the area, but a security guard watches over the front at night.

A cab from he airport cost $30US, but by day 3, we ended up renting a car from nearby Budget (also at the Avila Hotel). Parking in the area is easy.

Though this hotel is not on the beach but the personal touch by the young couple who own it makes it a hotel with human touch. Room is not big but clean and service and staff are very good. There is wireless internet available for a fee.

Location is such that a walk of 10 minutes will take you to downtown. If given a chance I would surely comeback and stay.Special thanks to Kim & Maarten whose personal touch makes this hotel worth staying.

Nice, clean place, almost in the middle of town. Lovely garden! Good restaurant for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served at the small table outside the room in the garden. Rooms are not big, bathroom is a bit basic, but both are clean. Kim and Maarten are a lovely couple running the hotel. They do everything to make your stay enjoyable.
We are divers and took a divepackage with Scuba Lodge. Walking distance. Unfortunately they were fully booked, their rooms looked also very nice.

Nice hotel that is owned by a young couple who attempt to make your stay comfortable.

Couple of facts: Not on a beach, not in a prefect location, you will hear other guests in the courtyard and on the street. No ac in the bathroom. (For those ladies who spend time getting ready in the bathroom). Concerns of safety at night due to drugs and streetwalkers. On Sunday nights and Wednesday, the drug dealers and the ladies where not around due to a church right next door is my only guess.

Good breakfast buffet and restaurant, good bar, good security in and outside of the building. In room safe, wired and wi fi internet for a fee, frig, ac, dip pool, linens so so. Bed was ok. Parking is on the street and never a problem to find a spot at night and there is a watchman to watch over your car and the hotel. In fact two, the bank across the street has a watch man as well.

If you do not have a car and are a female, I would not walk to and from town at night. Too many chances for trouble. Take a cab. To and from the airport is rough the first time due to lack of good street signs but easy after you have driven it a couple of times.

If you are on business, this is a good location with internet to get your work done. If you’re a tourist and don’t mind not having a beach and driving to a beach or walking ten minutes in the hot sun to downtown or the harbor, this hotel is hard to beat.

Most big box hotels are smoke free. This one is smoke anywhere at any time. Noise was the only real problem. Bathroom has open covered screened window/vent that lets in all the street noise. So I closed the bathroom door at night to sleep. If you are a late sleeper, pray for school to be out and that the next room sleeps in as well.

Pool service was good and the drinks cold. If you check in late, the watch man will check you in and ask you to recheck in after the couple get in the next morning. No irons or phones in the room. Irons at the front desk.

My husband and I spent 4 nights here during an enforced extended holiday thanks to the Icelandic volcano incident. Having already been on holiday for 10 days we wanted somewhere cheap and cheerful. Hotel t' Klooster is so much more than that! It's quite central, only a 10 minute walk to Handelskade and Otra Banda. The hotel itself is centred around a charming courtyard (it was formerly a small monastery) which has the pool and an outdoor seating area where breakfast is served. We had a comfort room (great aircon) and while moderately sized, space has been used wisely. The bathroom is good with a decent shower. My only complaint would be that the bed was a bit too soft. Breakfasts are simple but good. The best thing though is the staff. Super friendly and super helpful. As we had no idea when we would be able to get a flight home they were totally relaxed about us extending and shortening our booking. On the day we were checking out they let us keep our room until 2 o'clock as well. It was a really refreshing attitude to business! If you're coming to Curacao staying here is one of the best things you could do.

We stayed in Hotel 't Klooster for two weeks. What a great hotel! Only a 10 minute walk to the centre of town and about half an hour walk to the beach. Great restaurants around the corner. The restaurant (Augustinus) with the hotel is not the least of them. The room was well equipped and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Service was great. As mentioned on the English website, the pool is not very big, rather a plunge pool, but good enough for a refreshing dip!
