“Worst stay ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

I would never recommend this place to anyone. It was extremely small, not very clean, and the site/owners promised things that were not available. Before our arrival we were told we would have wifi and an iron. Once we arrived we received neither of these things. We had to ask for the iron and wifi multiple times. We received the iron on day 4 but never received wifi at all during our stay. We were told the place would be cleaned every other day. They cleaned it twice and we were there for 10 days. They promised a kitchenette but all we had was a sink. The fridge did not really keep our food cool so we avoided putting food in there. Truly the only thing we paid for was the location. On the last day of our stay the power went out. We contacted the owner who said they couldn't do anything about it and it was not restored the next day before we left. Communication with the owners of this place was also inadequate and inconsistent. If you're looking for a place to stay you may think twice about this place.

In this small family-run business everything worked just fine and we were very happy about the price quality ratio. Rain water shower, kitchenette, new aircondition, cable tv, clean room, etc...

The little Inn is perfect located in the heart of Port of Spain in a quiet secure street, close to restaurants and a 24 hour grocery store.

Cream on the top was the friendliness of the owners. We felt so welcome and almost like home. Thank you so much!!! :-)) Would come back there any time.

The little inn was a great place to stay in Port of Spain.the location is ideal for touring the city, or to catch a maxi taxi Maracas. The owners are extremely friendly and are willing to help out in any way possible. They organized drivers and welcomed us to their inn at 530am thanks to our flight being an hour early. The property is very secure and safe. Thank goodness the AC Working well! I will be back next time I am in POS.

I stayed at the Little Inn while I was in Port of Spain for a month doing research. I can't say enough good things about the place--great location, quiet, clean, safe and above all friendly atmosphere. Liszt and Karen will take great care of you.

Room Tip: The "Blue Room" is perfect for solo and couple travelers and has a pretty much full-sized...

We stayed in port of spain for two nights at The Little Inn. When our taxi dropped us off we were a bit confused because there is no sign out the front. Apparently that is common in POS as you don't advertise you are a guest house! The room was comfortable and did the job as a base for us to explore from. What set this place apart was Lizt and his mother. They are such lovely people and gave us good ideas on what we could do with our two days. They arranged our trip to the Coroni swamp also, which is a must see. This is not five star accomodation but does have the personal touch and is well located.

We had booked a room via hostelbookers as early as July 2012 for 4 nights from Jan. 28 till Feb. 1, 2013. When we arrived by taxi from the airport, Lizsth was a little embarrassed and said that he had cancelled all bookings in regard to the carnival when room prices sky-rocket. He had forgotten to cancel ours, however. Both Lizsth and his amiable mother were very devoted to accommodate us and allocated us the „Pink Room“ at a reduced rate. This room was exactly as the name says: Pink in every respect, even the aged fridge which was so cold that the bottled water froze! There was efficient A/C and a kitchenette. Lizsth brought us a two flame gas stove on a trolley (pink) with a gas bottle when we asked for it. In addition to a double bed, there was also a single bed which came handy as a baggage rest, plus a sizeable table and three chairs. A number of flower-pots, some hanging from the ceiling, with artificial flowers gave the room a cosy ambiance. The bathroom was very small but nice and in good working order. Wifi internet worked o.k. There were tables and chairs in the alley in front of our room. Some of the other rooms we saw were not so nice as the Pink Room, however. Lizsth went out of his way organizing a taxi at a reasonable price for a day trip to Pitch Lake, the Hindu temples, and the Caroni Swamp and also for the transfer to Blanchisseuse. The Little Inn is a friendly hostel, ideally situated but still quiet at night. There are restaurants in the vicinity, among them a very cheap and excellent Chinese one, two small shops in the same street and an IGA supermarket in 5-10 minutes walking distance.

I've been to the country before so I'm familiar with the standard. This past trip I stayed here & I must say this was the best trip I've ever had. This was largely in part to List and his mother who run the place and their travel advice, and great service (very very rare in Trinidad). For large event nights in the area they even pay for security to guard the front gate "until all guest are home" (also very rare for a TT B&B) Best spot for carnival & any events @ Queens park Oval or the Savannah. Both places 2min walk. I strongly suggest you choose these guys if your staying in Port of Spain.
And if you read this List, Thank you again for the lifts & all the help! See ASAP!!
