Very good experience. Staff very helpful in arranging taxis, advice on getting around town. A 10-15 minute walk to the old town, sights and shopping. Good breakfast. Pleasant quiet room.Complimentary transfer to airport. Only problem, a delay in posting charges to my credit card account

We stayed a week in this hotel in one of their suites. Our say was very pleasant. The room was large and comfortable and very clean. The staff was helpful and made our business stay very pleasant. The hotel has free access to internet.

The shopping centre of Paramaribo is nearby, just a short stroll.
Returning to Paramaribo, we surely would return to the hotel.

Stayed for a couple of nights, late April 2009. Did not expect much before going but the hotel rooms were nice, including the bathrooms with modern European style fixtures, mini bar, microwave and coffee machine and satellite TV.

Our company contracted for us to stay in this hotel during our delay while ferrying an aircraft to Argentina. What a great choice. Although Suriname is a so called developing nation, it's people are some of the most delightful I have ever met. The staff in the hotel are no exception. They are all courteous and helpful and never stop short in being professional as well as friendly. The hotel is well run, clean, roomy and a pleasure to stay in. The breakfasts are varied and tastey and the casual bar is a great place to lounge. Internet connections are as good as it gets, and free of charge. If I ever get to go back to Paramaribo, I will stay no place else. The best review that I can give any hotel is that I would gladly take my wife with me.

PS: We spent time previously in Paramaribo, my wife and I, and we both love the people.

First time in Suriname...Heard all about how dilapidated the Torarica is so was not expecting much.
What a surprise! It is the perfect business hotel, not more not less. Very well located, quiet, good service, etc...
The only complaint was that it took them 3 months to charge my AMEX credit card and that created havoc with my expense reporting system.
Staying there again in September.

Not gonna lie.. I was a little weary booking a Best Western. Having "Best Western" and "Elegance" in the same sentence seemed to be a bit of an oxymoron. I was pleasantly surprised! The service was fantastic, security was great, rooms were very roomy, clean, and well appointed. The only thing that brought the room down was the bedding. The place had the look and feel of a new Hilton but the same bed as a Best Western outside a NASCAR track. The food was great and the bar had a fine bartender that made a fantastic margarita. Check-in was a little slow since they have to make copies of everything for some reason but the front desk folks are very pleasant and helpful so it made the wait tolerable. All-in-all is was a great stay.
