“Just a clean place to sleep”
Reviewed February 10, 2008

I stayed here for 4 nights. This a very modest hotel, but it was clean and nice. Staff was friendly.

You will NOT find any luxuries here.

The location is great if you're going to the US Embassy (as I did), it just one block away.

Stayed here on a business trip, but don't expect any modern facilities! The single bed collapsed on the first night - it might have been something to do with the weight of all the fleas in the bed!

Some staff were friendly - others were damn rude! You do get breakfast in the price - if you call 4 pieces of toast a breakfast - everything else is charged extra.

If you put this hotel in perspective - its perhaps one of the decent ones out of a bad bunch!

I went on a weekend shopping trip to Port of Spain and I chose Par-May-La’s over all the dozens of Inns and Guest Houses in Trinidad. I secured a US40 room with my dad’s credit card. However upon arrival I was told the room wasn’t available anymore but one for US50 was. I agreed but I let the front desk know I was dissatisfied with that. What is the purpose of securing a room if they are still going to give it to someone else?

Apart from that, the Guest House was fabulous. Also included a continental breakfast. Rooms were clean, air-conditioned and tidy. I would definitely go back.

This guest house was amazing. The staff is friendly, always ready to assist. The female manager is as pleasent as she appears. The rooms are kept in prestige conditions. The proximity to activites in the city is outstanding. However, the only problem that comes to mind is that the guest house does not have a swimming pool. I recommend this guest house for those looking for a comfortable and relaxing stay in the Caribbean Isle of Trinidad.

We put our Carnival trip together way too late, but found only this and 2 other hotels available for the 4 days we would be in town for Carnival. The owner (?) told us she had only 1 room left (also found out later she had 1 room left for 2 other couples) for only a 10 day package and for $1000 US, take it or leave it. We found the other hotels @ $250 a night would have been the same price for 4 days but we elected for the quaint and to pump $ into the local economy rather than a big hotel chain. The friendless and warmness advertised in the brochure must have been on holiday during our visit, however. The lady manager seemed more interested in our keeping our A/C too cold or the fact that we wanted to give our room to a friend to finish out the remaining 5 days than being warm and friendly. The staff was reluctant to socialize and the night workers seemed out of touch with the surroundings (no one came close to being able to give us information). The aura of the staff was strange at best. We were told there would be tons of info on Carnival but only received a sheet of events and no other information and no one knew much more. Someone should have removed the feathers from the ducks before adding them to the pillows, and the mattress is about 6, so good luck if you are used to a soft bed. However, being only 3 blocks from the central savanna grand stand make up for a lot of the lacking of this place. The grocery store & Internet Café ½ block away and fast food 1 block away were very convenient as well. Par May Las wont be the first on our list next time we visit P.O.S. but it did seem better than a lot of the guest houses we saw, if only for the A/C. (Would fear a hotel in the city in summer with no A/C!!!)
