I stayed here 3 nights on a business trip. First impression wasn't good. I had asked the hotel to arrange for my transportation from the airport and their driver didn't show up. Being the last person at Georgetown airport, late on a Sunday night isn't a good feeling.
Other than the driver, the staff was very personable and helpful. I especially liked Mr. Baccuss and the bartender.
The room itself is pretty basic. It's a bed, one chair, a small desk, nightstand, lamp and mini-fridge with no outside windows. There is a window into the hall that radiates flouuescent light into your room while you try to sleep. Not sure why that seemed like a good idea when they were building the place. I did have quite a few bugs in my room, but this is common any time you're staying near the rain forest, or in a 3rd world country. However, it was pretty clean. The bathroom was very basic, but everything worked. It's like a hostel with a private bath.
The free breakfast was pretty weak. Coffee toast and maybe some fruit (they were out my first day)
Hotel is located about 2 blocks off Sheriff street, which is the main drag. It's within walking distance of plenty of places to eat, grocery stores, and bars. However, I don't recommend walking here after 9pm, or so.
If you're expecting the Ritz, you probably shouldn't be staying here or traveling to Guyana in the first place. If you're the type of person who's traveling here for an ecotour, or a business-person accustomed to 3rd world countries, you'll be just fine... I'll likely stay here again when I return.
