Hotel La Petite Maison
Ranked #9 of 31 Hotels in Paramaribo
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Nice hotel on the Waterkant, next to the Onafhankelijksplein, perfect location. We stayed in march 2012 at Room 45, nice big clean room with good bed, airco, fridge and splendid riverview. Shower stopped giving water every 30 seconds, but resumed quickly; way of saving water? The only drawback of the location and riverside room is the music and noise going on all night. Youngsters with their boembox cars, doors open, playing loud music and dancing until approx. 05.00 am ... Very simple breakfast, not in accordance with the quality of the hotel. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Ridiculous prices for laundry; we payed us$80 for two small sets of laundry.

I just got back from Suriname, where i stayed at la Petite Maison from 19/3/12 to 24/3/12. I Stayed in room 32, the room was small and basic, did have a mini bar, but was very clean, with king sized bed which was very comfortable.

I requested shuttle service in advance, which is $15.00usd (which doesnt pick you up only) $40.00 usd for private taxi. It was there on time, and the driver was very pleasant and helpful.

At first entry to the hotel, I didnt like the idea of no elevator, but i was on the first floor so after the first night it didnt bother me too much, The receptionist on first entry was very pleasant, when i got to the room and called asking about the wifi, she actually came upstairs with the wifi code and gave me personally.

Breakfast next morning was very nice and had a variety to choose from and also had something everyday, lots of fruits too. I must also mention that the breakfast lady Shirtley ,she is a very pleasant, helpful and patient lady as i got to breakfast almost past the time almost everyday, she was very accomodating...very nice lady.

I must say all the workers at the hotel are very nice and pleasant people, from the cleaners to the recepionists. Nothing is too big or small for them to help with with... I think everyone in Suriname is sooo nice and pleasant...

The hotel is on the side of Paramaribo where there is lots of activities, and the sakerant river is on this side too also its in a nice colonial garden setting, restaurants and walking distance ( would recommend the one at the back of the museum - Very nice food and very reasonable) Walking distance to the heart of town too (this i may add that everything is reasonable...great for shopping)

The hotel is perfect if you just want a bed and breadfast and would be out most of the time, one thing about the hotel I didnt like, was the fact that the guests walked too heavily that it woke me up on mornings (the floors are wood not concrete).

I definitely will go back to the la Petite Maison, its feels homely there, at a very good price for best location and service.... Suriname feels really safe, its clean and everyone seems really pleasant...

Room Tip: i think the garden view rooms will be perfect, the ones facing the river also faces the road can be...

My husband stayed here with a friend in 2010 as a start of their jungle experience. Because he liked this hotel so much, we decided to stay in this hotel again during our 2011 holiday in Suriname. It's a lovely, colonial hotel. You can use a card that gives you access to the swimming pool of the nearby Torarica hotel. The hotel is perfectly situated next to the 'Onafhankelijkheidsplein' and the residential palace of president Desi Bouterse. Across the street you are at the 'Waterkant', the place to be for the inhabitants of Paramaribo. We enjoyed our stay. One advice: please be aware of the mosquitos in the breakfast room.

Room Tip: Rooms with the river view have the advance of a balcony.

La Petite Maison in Paramaribo was a lovely surprise. Located right on the river (Waterkant), La Petite Maison is a well maintained old colonial building with pleasant and helpful staff. Apart from the mediocre breakfast, I can highly recommend this hotel and will defiintely stay there again if I return to Suriname.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river have a large, shared balcony but may be noisy at times due to the "party bus...

Nice hotel in one of the colonial wooden houses on a top location in the old centre. Rooms are good with airco, tv, wireless. First floor has a terrace / veranda overlooking the river an the street. Bteakfast is buffet style in the small garden in the back. Staff is very helpfull. Since you are next to the Onafhankelijksplein, music can be loud and prevent you from sleeping. Take earplugs with you. Free entrance in the pool of the torarica hotel is included. Best bet if you stay in paramaribo

La Petite Maison has the atmosphere of a pleasant, family driven bed and breakfast hotel with individual airco but no elevator. From arrival until the final departure we felt "at home" in La Petite Maison. We stayed several nights in La Patite Maison during our modular trip in Surinam. Every time it was a pleasure to return to our "basecamp". The staff was great, any request was fulfilled, The rooms were clean and the beds were (I just slept all night) good. The service at breakfast was great with fried eggs an fruit and a very friendly staff :-). Straight forward you want to go Parimaribo: Go: La Petite Maison
We loved it.
