We stayed in Aruba for 5 nights. The last night we spent here since our original accommodation was fully booked. The room was dirty and the price significantly exaggerated. We payed 78 US$ for one night (for two), the room was dirty, the shower drain was clogged, the carpet looked like it has never seen a vacuum cleaner. The room...

We stayed in Aruba for just thankfully 2 nights before we headed onward to Bonaire for some diving. We had never been to Aruba and quickly found out the busy city and resorts are just not our style. However, I am so happy we found A1 and stayed here with the Kemp's who make you feel more like you are...

Great location, 5 min walk to main center and main bus station, 15 min walk from the beach and 3 large grossery stores.

This was my second stay at A1 Apartments the service is great. The owners Mr and Mrs. Kemp are very committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible. If you compare the hotel prices and its location, then A1 Apartments is a bargain. You are at a 10-15 minute walk from downtown Oranjestad. You get to cook your own...

Cozy and clean. Very close to downtown and the harbour. The room is well equipped. You can cook yourself if you don't to spend money for restaurant. The differents beaches are walking distance from your apartment. It's great place. Kemp and Ingrid are just like family members. You're really feel like home.

We spent 14 days in our small apartment and wanted for nothing! Ingrid and Stanley are the perfect hosts, quite delightful, caring and informative. They go out of their way to accommodate any possible needs. Loved the location; close to town (15 min walk), close to the main bus station, close to the beach (15 mins). The neighbourhood is safe,...

I am very glad I stayed in this top floor apartment with a nice, adjacent large terrace. The bed was comfortable, cleaning in room was perfect, and for a budget traveller like me, it was good to have a kitchenette with gas stove, microwave, fridge as well as a coffe maker and a blender for your iced drinks.

If you're planning a short stay minus kids this is the perfect place for you. If you are travelling in a group the already reduced prices (compared to the hotels), becomes very minimal. It's very peaceful, you can cook your own meals watch netflix...A1 apartments is (depending on your pace) about a 10-15 minutes walk from all the shopping centers...
