Only negative. On Expedia the hotel is listed as having parking. It does not. Whether this is and Expedia or hotel problem I don't know, but it caused me problems. Otherwise no problems. Be aware it is a training hotel, but the students were very helpful and everything went smoothly.
Very nice welcome by the staff, who were also very nice as to prepare my arrival by emailing me to ask for my time of arrival. Lovely place with SWIMMING POOL, COOKING FACILITIES EN SUITE, HOMELY. Ideal for a long or short stay, probably RELATIVELY CHEAPEST AND BEST accomodation in CURRACAO of those advertised! PERSONALLY I WOULD AVOID CURRACAO WHEN TRAVELLING ON A BUDGET. BUT IF YOU MUST, THEN THIS IS A NICE PLACE! A BIT NOISIER ON WEEKENDS WITH THE NEIGHBOURING BAR AND STUDENT ACCOMODATION... BUT QUICKLY GETS QUIET AGAIN AFTER MIDNIGHT. *WHEN IMMIGRATING TO CURRACAO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CASH ON YOU AND CREDIT CARD, AS WELL AS RESERVED PLACE TO STAY, IMMIGRATION CAN BE DIFFICULT AND IF YOU HAVE NOT ENOUNGH MONEY ON YOU OR ALL BOOKINGS DONE AND PAID FOR, YOU MIGHT BE DETAINED IN A PRISON CELL UNTIL YOU CAN BUY A TICKET OUT (WITH CASH OR CREDIT CARD ONLY)... WITH NO INTERNET SERVICES AND ONLY 2 PHONE CALL TIMES A DAY, AND NO PROPER FOOD! AS HAPPENED TO ME! YES, CURACAO IS INDEPENDENT AND NOT DUTCH TERRITORY ALTHOUGH THE LAW IS WRITTEN IN DUTCH ONLY AND YOU WILL NEED TO READ IT TO UNDERSTAND IT, FOR NOBODY WILL TRANSLATE IT FOR YOU WHEN YOU ARE BEING DETAINED AND ASKED TO SIGN A FORM OF VERBAL PROCESS AS YOU ARE TAKEN INTO PRISON!
The hotel location is fair enough for the price you pay; its near the bus station of Otrobanda and a 5 minutes walk to Queen Emma Bridge which connects to Punda (lovely city).
The hotel offers a free breakfast, free wifi but there is no signal that reach the rooms, beds aren't comfortable at all and make too much noise.
