Hotel options in French Guyana are limited; even the renowned Novotel has severe faults. L´ebene verte (thank you tripadvisor) proved to be an excellent alternative: Yes, it´s not in Cayenne itself - but only a 15 minute ride to the city center, five minutes to the Carrefour and Géant supermarkets and only a minute to the road to the airport or to Kourou.
Being located in a residential area, it is very calm here. The staff is polite and helpful. There´s a pool and ample place to sit with a Ti Punch. The gardens need some remaining work, but I guess they will manage this in the next weeks.
My studio, though painted in a liitle too dark colours, was super clean, very, very spacious and well designed. TV, A/C, fridge, a lovely terrace, everything you need. According to the management, the room was only finished three weeks before and it indeed felt that way.
I paid 90 Euro for the room. For an off-location, this seems not cheap, still the total package makes this acceptable. Reservation was made via e-mail, without a credit card confirmation - I like that.
I recommend this hotel to everyone who does not need to be in the anyhow sleepy city center of Cayenne.
