Samise Villa
Ranked #9 of 44 Port of Spain B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 25, 2011

This was our second time staying at Samise Villa and it was just an enjoyable as the first. Denise and Sam are excellent hosts, and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Big rooms, some recently added, breakfast included and a patio and balcony to sit out on in the evenings enjoying a rum and roti. Really good value, and just a 10min walk from the Savannah as well. Hope to be back again in the future!

We stayed here for two nights.
Denise was very friendly and accommodating. The place is a nice house and it is surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is in a decent neighborhood within reasonable distance of Queen's park Savannah.
Compared to the other choices in POS, this is a bargain and a wonderful stay.

I recently spent a night at Samisevilla -- my fourth or forth stay overall. It's a small but charming bed and breakfast that's run by Sam and Denise, who do all they can to make you feel at home. The price is quite affordable, and the location is just near the Savannah in Port of Spain.

They have a mix of family rooms with bun beds (ideal for Carnival) and bigger rooms for business-people and couples.

The one thing that makes it interesting is its location next to a psychiatric hospital - St. Anns. I can't say that I ever heard or saw anything out of the ordinary, however, but it's good to know that help is just around the corner if needed after a tough business-meeting!

Parking is available, but limited, and they take PayPal, but not credit cards on the spot. The price at US$45 a night is unbeatable for a clean, frendly, safe stay almost in the middle of town.

I have tried most of the mid-size hotels in the area -- and the service here is easily the best.

I stayed three nights at Samise Villa and was totally satisfied. Denise and Sammy were excellent hosts. They were informative and made certain that I had no problems navigating my way around Port of Spain which turned out to be very easy since the bus stops in front of Samise Villa. The room was very clean, quiet, and comfortable with a good wi-fi connection. Highly recommended; I would stay nowhere else in Port of Spain!

Not very often does an owner of a B & B come to pick up their guests from the airport (for a reasonable fee) and drive the scenic route, overlooking the city to bring us to their wonderful B & B.. The hotel is clean, with air, high ceilings, quiet environment, and breakfast served in their kitchen until 10. We were in a downstairs room so we had a view of a wall of the hospital next door, so not the best view, but most of the rooms are upstairs and are very airy and have a communal balcony. Lovely garden around the house. Sam and Denise were very friendly and helpful (went way out of their way to help us!) and we enjoyed walking to and from the heart of the city every day. Close to the Magnificent 7, Queens Hall, other cultural points of interes and a post office. Definitely recommend it.
