“Fabulous hotel**”
Reviewed 18 August 2007

The hotel and the service was great,i must say.I don`t have any difficulties with the hotel at all,the pool wasn`t that big,but it`s nice,me and my son really enjoyed it.The reason why i visited Residence inn,is because my flight was cancelled and the airline booked me a room there.And even as a stranded passenger i did get the full service.The room was clean,
i enjoyed the breakfastbuffet and i really like the friendly staff,so for me,this hotel is fabulous.I definitly want to visit this hotel again,it`s worth the price!


Regards,

Reviewed 8 May 2007

I was on a business trip to Paramaribo Suriname in early May 2007 and the booking was made at the Residence Inn Hotel. The hotel is situated a little ways out of the city, and a good 30 min + walk to the center of town. The hotel is listed as a three star but it des not get even one. The establishment is very modest, facilities are shabby and poorly mantained and the service is very poor. We checked in at 2 am, a normal arrival time for guests flying Suriname Airways. The check in/receptionist took his time to process the check in. The room was located on the second floor (no elevator) in one of the small buildings in the back. The room is very scruffy, furniture and linnens were old and not very clean. The damp smell and poor ventilation did not make breathing in the room at all pleasant. The air con is very old and very noisy. We were told on arrival internet services were available (wireless) in the rooms. This is not so. There is no internet access in the premises other than in a poorly fitted "business center". . Guests are charged an enourmous safety deposit fee for the room key, safe key and fridge key. Guests are also surprised to learn of an additional 6% charge for bills paid with a credit card, or a minimal of USD 10 dollars, whichever is cheaper. Credit cards are widely used in Paramaribo and most businesses do not charge the extra fee. This is on top of 18%% plus taxes and "services" fees. A one night stay in this very medicore establishment will come to nearly USD100. For the same amount you can get a much better room and service at other hotels in the city. When trying to reason with the receptionist on the logic of this hidden tax she remained indiferent, did not feel she had a role to play. She argued this was not her policy and management would not do anything about it. You can find better places to stay and much better service in Paramaribo, and enjoy some of the interesting things the city has to offer. The Residence Inn is not one of them.
