Newer hotel, nice rooms, good tv and wifi and a/c. But no spa or restaurant although advertised as such. No glasses to be found...rather they use small paper cups. Charge extra is you want to check in before three but why was that even possible when they did not even give me a room until 20 minutes after 3pm check-in time! Great location. Can walk to everything except the beach. Music from a next door bar was a nuisance in my room until midnight. Breakfast was nothing special. Pool is nice but small.

The hotel is in the perfect location for you to do most of your sightseeing. If you can get a room that looks out onto the Queen Emma Bridge then that is perfection. Most attractions in the area are within walking distance from the hotel in either direction. In One Direction is Kaya Kaya neighborhood where you can see the beautiful artwork, and also the African History Museum. In the other direction is Rif Fort shopping plaza and the cruise dock.

Once you walk across the Queen Emma Bridge that will take you into Punda which is the tourist area. There you will find the Curacao and Dushi signs as well as tons of shops and restaurants.

Itwas fun sitting in my room watching the Bridge being moved back and forth to allow barges and boats to get through.

Just be realistic in your expectations of the hotel because it is a Best Western. It's a 3-star hotel. There were initially some issues with my room, however, Emerson the manager, did his absolute best to make sure that the situation was resolved and that I left with a good impression of the hotel and the staff.

The staff are lovely, but young, so they do have a bit to learn yet. If you're looking for a place to land so that you can walk around and sight see at your leisure, then this hotel is perfect.

Also, don't pay those high prices for a walking tour of the city. There are free tours that meet right next door at Rif Fort and you will see everything in the area. Just be sure to at least tip your guide.

We take pride in having such a central location that allows our guests easy access to many restaurants, shops, museums, and even the bus and taxi stations. Additionally, we're delighted that you appreciated the view of the Queen Emma Bridge from your room.

Finally, we sincerely appreciate your kind words about our staff and we're pleased that Emerson, our manager, was able to resolve the situation and leave you with a positive impression of the hotel and our team. Thank you once again for choosing Brion City Hotel. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back for another enjoyable stay in the future🥳👍🏾

It was a good experience. Very clean and everything was easily accessible.
Only problem I had was that room did not have a mirror. The only mirror was the 1 in the bathroom and also the pool didn’t seem as if it was in service as it seemed rather dirty.
But over all the experience was good and the employees were very courteous, special thank you to Argentla at the front desk (not sure if that’s how his name is spelt) . Can’t wait to return.

We arrived at the lobby of the hotel on March 08 around 12:15pm, we were greeted with a smile by Injomar. Since we arrived early before our check in time is at 3pm, we asked him if he can safekeep our bags and luggage temporarily so we can look for a place to eat. He readily agreed without any hesitation. We went back 5 minutes before 3pm and was greeted by Gisel, she was a very lovely person, always have that contagious smile on her face. She was assisted by Yoyce who made sure that everything were in order. The very helpful Raymond assisted us in retrieving our bags and luggage. Emo provided us some assistance on the tv and safety box. On our third day, Junrick assisted us by calling the person in charge of the beach towels. On our last day, Scarlet gave us three very tasty "arepa" and made sure that we were enjoying our breakfast. Lastly, we would like to thank Gabriela and Kimberly for keeping our room tidy and clean. Your efforts were highly appreciated, seeing our room organized and intact after a tiring day really diminished our stress away. To all of you who made our stay a memorable one, we thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We do hope the management team will recognize you on your efforts. Always keep those jolly smiles on your faces. Stay safe and healthy everyone. We will be recommending your hotel to all our friends who will travel to the beautiful island of Curacao. The hotel is very accessible to everything - restaurants, Queen Emma bridge, convenience stores, fast foods, shopping stores whether in Punda or Otrobanda side.

We were a little bit apprehensive about booking this hotel before we left as we could not find many reviews but we are so glad that we did!

This hotel is located in an excellent location - beside Queen Emma Bridge.
We had plenty of restaurants within walking distance, many of which are very highly rated here too!
There are two bus stations for beach days and there is also a taxi rank very close.
We did not avail of the parking but did notice a big carpark at the rear of the hotel. The pool area is in the sun until around three and is a nice place to relax in between trips!
Breakfast had the basic staples found in most hotels and those working there keep topping up the food as needed.

The staff were all very helpful and friendly, in particular those working in reception...from helping us out with anything to answering whatever questions that we had!

My husband and I stayed at the Brion City Hotel for two weeks. The location of the hotel is perfect bc it is in the centre of the city so you can enjoy bars, restaurants, galleries, museums and shopping all within walking distance of the hotel. The entire downtown area was very clean with virtually no garbage seen on the streets. We rented a car for a few days and toured the beaches, snorkelled, took a million photos and experienced all that beautiful rural Curacao has to offer. One note of caution, the streets have broken bricks, cobblestone and some soft dirt areas so, for folks who are more comfortable walking on level ground, take walking poles (or whatever). Also, the Queen Emma Bridge has a wooden floor so slippery when wet.

The staff in the Brion are delightful, helpful, enthusiastic, efficient and welcoming. The hotel is very very clean. The AC in our room was the best I have ever experienced and the bed vey comfy. We did not use the pool. The entire area around the hotel seemed vey safe to us. The hotel breakfast was marginal at best, but quaint spots for breakfast are everywhere.

Do your homework before you go. The history and culture of this island is amazing .... not to mention the bright sunshine.

Dear Heather, Thank you for choosing Brion City Hotel for your recent stay and for sharing such a detailed and positive review with us! We're thrilled to hear that you and your husband enjoyed your two-week stay with us and that you found our hotel's location to be perfect for exploring the vibrant city of Curacao. We take pride in having such a central location that allows our guests to have easy access to many restaurants, shops, museums, and even the bus and taxi station. In addition, our biggest edge is the privilege we provide to our guests of sleeping and waking up in rooms with Harbor and City views facing the iconic Emma Bridge and Juliana Bridge. It's also fantastic to hear that you had a delightful experience with our staff and that you found our hotel to be clean, comfortable, and safe. We're delighted that you enjoyed the amenities in your room, especially the efficient AC and comfy bed. This is exactly what we stand for, and we're happy to have fulfilled your expectations. Furthermore, thank you for your honest feedback about our breakfast.

Lastly, we couldn't agree more about the rich history, culture, and sunshine of Curacao, and we're glad you had the opportunity to explore and experience it all. Once again, thank you for choosing Brion City Hotel. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back for another memorable stay in the future! 😀💗

I was worried about checking in because my plane arrived late in the evening and the taxi I arranged to picked me up didn’t show up and I had to scramble to grab the last taxi at the airport. When I arrived at the hotel Ray and his staff was great getting me checked in.

My room was very comfortable and even though I was by the pool, I didn’t hear the noise. The hotel is in a great location and very close to everything. I’ll be staying there again on my next visit.

Clean room with the most beautiful balcony view of Queen Emma bridge! Located in the heart of the main town, easy access to siteseeing and not far from airport. Reception staff were friendly. Breakfast is basic scrambled eggs, grilled potato with coffee/tea. Would stay here again if looking for a clean and convenient stay.

We stayed at this Hotel for vacation, booked the Harbor View with a Balcony and it was an amazing view of the Queen Emma Bridge from the Balcony… seeing the bridge open to allow passing ships and boats and the lovely limelight at night … Seeing people crossing and taking pictures.. loved every bit of it.
The Breakfast was very simple, you can also go to cafe’s around walking proximity for breakfast as well which we did also. No disappointment. Friendly staff, Good housekeeping. I would recommend this Hotel because of the convenience of being right in the city surroundings and the comfort and cleanliness of the room.

This is probably the worst hotel that I ever set foot in. When my 7-year-old granddaughter needed a toilet, I asked the receptionist at your hotel if she could use your toilet. It was said that she could not; it was only for guests. I then offered 20 USD; the answer was that this was not about money; I had to go. I then asked for a room for a night to be a guest so the girl could pee. I was told the hotel had no rooms. I was again told to go. My granddaughter had to pee in front of your hotel in the street. What a quality hotel you are!!
