Hometel on Signal Hill

Certificate of Excellence

I am thrilled with my stay at Hometel. Rooms are in brand 3 story townhouses. They are clean, well decorated, and beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are spotless and closet space is big. Parking is free and so is wifi and telephone. Located next to Signal Hill, but a good 10 min walk from bars and cafes of downtown. Prices excellent and cannot say enough how clean, fresh, and trendy rooms are. WILL BE BACK!

This place was a very warm and inviting stay for lone traveler looking to get a feel for St. John's during Christmas. Located at the base of Signal Hill, I was able to take in a lot of the sights that make the city so memorable. Beds and bedding were clean and soft. Rooms and common areas were absolutely spotless and a decorated Christmas tree was the perfect finishing touch for someone who would be traveling during the holidays. A small breakfast is prepared for you including muffins, toast, coffee and juice. As well, staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about what to see, where to go and how to truly experience St. John’s. One final surprise was that rooms were equipped with free internet and long distance; a rarity in any hotel these days.
Amazing spot to stay - will be returning with group very soon!

I booked the hotel on a combined Air Canada flight-hotel package -- got a remarkably low rate for the hotel. A great deal.
As to the hotel itself, I was quite impressed. It is a small three story hotel. The rooms are in great shape, the hotel is centrally located, the staff are responsive. Included with the price were a free breakfast (toast, muffins, cereal, hardboiled eggs, coffee, juice, etc), free internet, and free local and long distance phone calls -- the latter two set the hotel apart.
The building feels like an extended town hoast, with separate entrances to each three story setion -- be warned that there are no elevators.

We stayed for a week of both sightseeing, some business and a wedding - very friendly staff, we arrived early and got into our room no problem. Nice breakfast every day (it does get crowded when the rooms are full as they were at the end of the week), and constantly helping with ideas, directions, asking if things were good.
Certainly the room we had was fairly small but we were not in St Johns to sit in a hotel room. It can be somewhat noisy with traffic within each unit, maybe more carpeting or padding would help.

A great alternative to the traditional hotel. The room was reasonably priced for what you receive. Bed was comfortable and linens clean. Not alot of room to move around the room as it contains just a bed, dresser and side tables. The breakfast was a couple of doors down at another building and was well stocked and fresh.

This was a great place - clean, elegant, quiet, ample parking, breakfast, nice people and all at a good price. It was also within walking distance of downtown so we walked everywhere. This was a bonus because the diving in St. John's was quite scary and walking was much safer!

The room was small but totally adequate! It was very very clean and modern. I booked online because the website said there was free onsite parking, When we arrived there was no close parking left. We had to park in the lot of the hotel behind the Hometel. It was fine but inconvenient. The breakfast was ok with muffins and juice, but it was just one little kitchen with all the guests bumping into each other and no where to sit. We had a kitchen right next to us in our building, it would have made sense if they had 2 locations that you could go for your breakfast. It's not like anyone was cooking... it was only continental so they could have put it out in another kitchen or two. We ended up having to bring our food back to our room to eat. Otherwise it was a great location. Easy access to downtown shopping and restaurants! The price was great at $99 (plus tax, $114) per night. At that price I would CERTAINLY stay there again and recommend this place to a friend!
