It's a very nice budget accommodation! We had a room for 4 people with kitchen, which was very colourful and clean with wifi. The owner is very friendly but does not speak english. At the end no problem! A recommendation for everyone who needs a budget room.

Big room, big bed, equipped kitchenette and new air-condition. staff was very helpful with organising the trip to the islands- we also got s small...

Like everything in La Guyane, this expensive for what you get. Rooms are clean and brightly coloured. Kitchens are minimally equipped, but functional. Wifi works great. Staff were helpful in booking my Iles du Salut trip and directing me to the supermarket (walking distance) and a bank machine. It's a bit out of the way, but if you can get...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and found the price very good for what was on offer. The rooms are comfortable and clean though basic. The hotel itself is 5 minutes from a large supermarket and a 30 minute brisk walk from the wharf where the boats to Devil's Island leave. The location is quiet as it's in...

Stayed here a couple of nights recently. The location of the hotel is good since there is no real city center in Kourou. McDonalds, restaurants and a supermarket are nearby. The hotel is tucked away in a residential area but was marked on our tourist map and thus easy to find. Staff were friendly and helpful and assisted in organising...

The hotel is recently renovated, clean, staff friendly and rooms quite spacious. If you can find yourself a tourist map then the hotel is marked (approximately) on the street map of Kourou, only a few blocks back from the beach. To get here once you're in town, find yourself Avenue de Frances, travel north west to the round about with...

This is a spartan property, locked up during most of the day with only a short window for arrivals. The rooms are clean, the beds reasonably comfortable, but the a/c is automatically turned off during the night which can be most irritating! The property is very difficult to find, being hidden away in a residential area, and distant from any...

We arrived in French Guiana from Suriname and my friend from Paris. The owner was so helpful and friendly. She organised a great modern and spacious room for us and was very hospitable. She is fluent in Spanish, which was useful as my French was not good enough to explain any issues. She even drove us to the boat to...

This is a good place for the rate. You will receive a warm hospitality along your stay. The bathroom must be renovated. The lighting should be improved This is a SAFETY place for your car if you acess inside the private park
