I stayed at Hotel Scharloo the last week of November. It is a wonderful place to stay -- the staff is super helpful. The rooms are spacious -- I was even given the Queen deluxe room at the same prize as the normal rooms ($80) -- a great value. Unfortunately, it rained both days I was there so I did...

Quaint and charming, this renovated hotel is tucked away by the waterfront on a backstreet, but is close to the bridge that links to the shopping area. Small parlor with TV, fridge, sink and hotplate. Our room faced a lovely courtyard with lounging pool...steep staircase to upstairs rooms. Staff (Nelson, Nora, Everon) were friendly and helpful with directions, calling taxi...

I stayed with my sister in Hotel Scharloo for 3 or 4 nights. When we booked the room, we happened to get the King Suite to the price of a normal room, as part of a special first-come-first-serve promotion. The room was clean and spacious with a nice balcony overlooking the floating market. Air conditioned bed room, fan in living...

Hotel Scharloo is situated in a beautiful colonial building only minutes from the center of Willemstad. Our room was spacious and very tastefully renovated with the colonial feel still there. The airco worked fine but we prefer the fan, the beds were fine, the shower worked fine, although one should not expect a heat festival...but hey, these are the Tropics,...

I stayed here on the Saturday night of the jazz fest(Sept 3). We had no idea what to expect. We arrived late and had no problems checking in. Apparently the hotel was full that night and we were the last guests, because they knew exactly who we were when we arrived. FORGET ALL ELSE.... I LEFT MY DAVID YURMAN BRACELETS...

Excellent location, just a short walk over a pedestrian bridge to the centre of Willemstad (Punda) with shops and restaurants. Fascinating historical location and architecture, with Punda, Scharloo and Otrobanda (the 'other side' of a pontoon bridge) UNESCO-listed. Pleasant rooms and friendly staff who will organise a taxi (or haircut!). Free internet. Stayed 3 nights with a side trip in-between,...

What else do you want? The rooms are quite big and comfortable and are like 1/4 or 1/5 of the mile from the centre of action in Willemstad. Totally worth the time and money

“Apartments are in the courtyard and are quiet and simply decorated; rooms in the mansion appear to have more atmosphere. The courtyard rooms have easy access to the beautiful pool and garden.”

“Room 4 is a large, airy, bright studio apartment. At this writing, it is about to be renovated. Be extremely careful walking down the steps to the attached veranda when the porcelain tiles are wet! The manager has told me that on my complaint they will be applying anti-skid strips. We were told by long term temporary residents that the large, beautiful suites at the front of the main building can be too hot. I'd ask if the air con has been modernized.”
