We were a party of five friends on a limited budget holiday so were not expecting too much. What we got was a lovely place to stay at an unbeatable price. The rooms were clean and comfortable and there was a nice little patio garden at the back where we had breakfast or just sat in and relaxed after a full day walking around. The staff were very friendly and helpful giving us lots of tips on where to go and they would make us tea/coffee whenever we asked for it.
The hotel is located about 5-10 minutes from Trinidade metro station (on the main line from the airport), there are plenty of bus stops to help you get around or you can walk down to the river in about 20 minutes. For Port Houses Taylor's or Ferreira are the better ones to visit. Tram ride along the north side of the river is nice and there is a stop just past the road bridge where the local ferry boat goes across to the fishing village on the south side of the river.
Make sure you validate your bus/metro ticket each time you travel and make sure you carry some form of ID with you (e.g. passport). Spot checks were being done at stations for both tickets and IDs whilst we were there.
