“The only good thing about this guest house is the location and the pool.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

In suriname everything is expensive compared to the rest of South america so for Paramaribo it is a cheap hotel we paid about $ 30 per night without breakfast that is 4.50 euro's pp extra.
The hotel is in the middle of the centre and also one street away from the waterfront were the restraurants are so that is good otherwise you have to get a taxi al the time to go to a restaurant because Paramaribo is not save to walk at night the told us. Also they have a nice pool wich is verry nice to cool off.
But the hotel it self, I would not go there again, the staff was not friendly, not unfriendly either they just didn't said that much. Our rooms were verry old and neglected there were holes in the wall, the walls and the ceiling were verry dirty, luckily the carpet on the floor was dark so we could not see how dirty that was. The door and the light switch were almost black were you touch it and they once were white. The sheets had blood stains, the toilet and shower did look clean but they are verry small and the tiles were loos. The beds are verry small. Also they did not clean our room during our stay, maybe because we did not turn in the key if we went out but they did not tel anything about that. Once we asked the cleaninglady for new towels she told us we get it later but we never got them.

A small homely guest-house in the middle of town.
Five minutes walk away from the Waterfront, the shops and restaurants.
Family owned and the staff is very friendly and caring.

Guesthouse Albergo Alberga is great budget location to explore exotic Paramaribo from. This is a bare bones guest house, for the budget traveler that offers good value, with basic clean accommodations, a 24 hr reception desk, a small above ground pool, a nice communal balcony, wireless internet, a very basic breakfast (extra fee) ...and best of all a fabulous location.
I travelled there with a friend for the Diwahli festival in Nov 2010 and we stayed two nights. Our room had a fairly comfortable double bed, a private shower and bathroom, a fan (you can book a room with air conditioning, there were none available during our stay). Prices range from $17 to $40 Euros...so very reasonably priced....but don't expect luxury...Our room did come with some low end toiletries and two towels but that was about it. Also expect some steep staircases to climb..our room was on the top floor...so if three flights of narrow windy stairs several times a day is not your thing...be forewarned.
They can book you tours, rent bikes and sell beverages (including beer) from a cooler in the lobby. While in “Parbo” as the locals call it be sure to try some of the fabulous Dutch foods, stroll along the waterfront and visit perhaps the world's most bizarre covered market...where you can buy bones, feathers, beads, chicken feet and of course fresh fruit and vegetables.
If you are looking for a clean place to crash for a few days while exploring Paramaribo and saving $ before taking that fabulous eco tour in Suriname... Albergo Alberga serves the purpose well.

As friendly as the staff may be, and as cool as the streetside porch looks, let's cut to the chase: the bathroom isn't separated from the bedroom. Case closed!

The only great thing about this hotel is the location.... as a kind of standard in Surinam, it also does not have hot water...

The rooms are pretty dirty, and the receptionists really had no idea about the area (tryed asking about restaurants... nobody knew anything...). The night man especially was really rude...

All in all it's ok for it's value, but with a little bit more you can stay at La Petit Maison 2 blocks away, which is a LOT better (I checked it!!).
