We had the super 2bedroomapartment (app nr 8) for 25 days. We were with friends and family (total we had 5 apartements). Apartments from small to big are available. We had a good time. Good food, pleasant swimming pool (with a little robot to clean it), hot tub, clean and tidy. Laundry, call john or lloyd and in a few hours washed and dried. The dutch 'kroketten' where delicious. Gents go on. We will be back next year at the highpoint of the party time: new year.
Very clean. Apartments have everything, from a cheese slicer to flat screen hdtv and bluray player. Price/quality is very good.
Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel looks to have been upgraded years ago so the fixtures are quite aged. Our toilet broke and had to be replaced. Still was not great after the repair job but they acted quickly. If you like alot of frills, this is not the hotel for you. It is clean and basic. Breakfast is included but here again, very basic.
It is located in the heart of the city.
Our stay in Guesthouse Amice was a pleasant surprise after some days in the jungle.
The rooms are clean, the hot shower wonderful, very friendly staff. The place feels like home.
Really nice setting, a little bit outside the centre but not too far.
Good price for a excellent quality.
Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit.
Free wireless internet.
This is a very clean and comfortable hostel/guesthouse. They offer clean and comfortable beds, with linens, towels, etc. Rooms are 15 EUR per night each person. There are private sinks in each room, but shared toilets and shower (which are cleaned daily).
Breakfast is served in the lower patio for 4 EUR. WiFi is available through their partner cafe. The location is great. It is on a very quiet street so there is no road noise or hassles, yet you are only a ~5 minute walk from the central plaza.
While I have stayed at 3-4 other hotels in Paramaribo, ECO Resort - which belongs to Hotel Torarica - is a smaller, newer facility, primarily used by business people. They offer free airport shuttle, which is a good thing, since flights sometime arrive into "Parbo" at ridiculous times like 2:00AM. The rooms are quite clean and roomy, a very decent buffet breakfast is served on an informal "patio" overlooking a (typically muddy) river. You also get free access to the pool and aerobics/gym facilities at the Torarica. You feel safe and moving around is easy and central.
(1) When you are in Suriname, feeling safe and secure is important, and you get this here.
(2) Also, Suriname offers jungle trips and lots of eco-tourism and hotel staff will help you connect with tours.
(3) PLEASE do not waste any time: eat as much Javanese food that you can!! Sate, sambal, bami, etc. etc. Do not feel guilty!
This is a pretty nice place set in the middle of the old town of Paramaribo, near the palm trees and the flower market and not too far from the main drag of restaurants and bars.
As far as I remember, the rooms were clean, toilets a bit small, but staff very friendly and the whole place was quite homely. It is a hostel, so it is cheap and cheerful, but also quite basic.
If you're looking for budget accommodation, give this place a whirl.
In an old Dutch Colonial building, nice setting really.
Well, the Torarica is proabably the best known hotel in Paramaribo, it has several bars and its very popular with visiting Dutch travellers, its a little bit expensive for my liking, and, well, I have to say, I had a bit of a nightmare the last time I stayed there, read on.......
The hotel provides free transport to the airport, let the frontdesk know your flight number and they will tell you when to be at reception, so I did, and they told me to be at reception 5 hours before the flight left (its 45 mins to the airport).
When I asked why, I was told that the flight time could change by 2 hours depending on if there was fog or not! ie if there was no fog the flight would leave at 4, if there wasn't it would leave at 6! hmmmm
So, we ended up at reception for 0100, waited for 45 mins, asked at reception and got told to come back in a couple of hours, basically mr hotel receptionist was full of it, so that kind of tainted the otherwise exceedingly good image the hotel gives.
Got an excellent Casino (if you're into that)
Some fairly good bars
Rooms are pretty good
Most of the staff are up to scratch.
Close to the discos and restaurants in the area
Has its own taxi rank
About 10 mins walk from town centre and close to flower market
This time I had more luxery then the hostels...
I stayed at a very good Hotel in the Centre of Paramaribo.
The beds were good and the staff friendly...
Just across the street is a good disco were you can go out at Night, I have only forgotten the name.
And if you turn left outside the Hotel, you will find a good terras with livemusic, its called "het vat"
Free bus transportation from the airport to the hotel v.v.
Laundry service ...
Tropical Garden ...
There are lots of pages on this sight that cover accommodation in Paramaribo, I think that the Krasnopolsky hotel is a nice hotel to stay in if you want to stay smack bang in the middle of town.
There are two hotels on the outskirts of town, but much closer to the restaurant and disco-bar district (the only one I came across actually in the town anyway), these two are the Torarica and Eco-resort - these hotels are also closer to the outstanding out-of-town restaurant area too.
The Torarica is a very nice hotel, with a bar on the river, tennis courts, gym etc etc but it is a bit pricey. If , however, you stay at the Eco-resort hotel, its about 200m from the Torarica and you can use all of the facilities of the Torarica as part of an agreement between the two hotels. The Eco-resort hotel rooms are clean and comfortable, they have a good breakfast buffet in the morning and it is quite a bit cheaper than the Torarica
Nothing outstandingly unique, just a good hotel, very well equipped reception and I believe they have in-room internet access.
The thing about hotels in the Guianas is that they just have to be normal to be good as there are quite a lot of flea-pits, I'm going to try and stay at the residence inn next time to see how that compares to the other two 'big' hotels in Paramaribo, by the way there is quite a bit of cheap accommodation in the town itself, but it is a bit hit and miss.
A city hotel.
Nice room with everything you need, you have in your room.
The hotel has a swimmingpool on the 3th floor. A bar, restaurant, shops, reception.
If you want to stay in the middle of Paramaribo then is this hotel a good place to stay.
A bus is waiting to take us to the hotel for some much needed sleep. The hotel looks very welcoming all bathed in lights, with a U-shaped drive and cottages spread around the grounds. Each cottage holds six rooms on two floors, with en suite bathroom, mini bar, cable TV, in-house safe and (over) efficient air conditioning. Central attraction is the swimming pool with its adjacent open air restaurant where we take breakfast the following morning.
Paramaribo has a number of modern hotels with air conditioning, but advance booking is essential owing to the limited number of beds. A ten per cent service charge is added. There are several small guest-houses and pensions in the city and elsewhere but it is advisable to check with the tourist office for further information. Hotels and restaurants are rare outside the capital, and travellers are advised to bring their own hammock and food.
