I booked this hotel from London to stay for a week. Got to the hotel about 8:30 and full payment was demanded on arrival. Not a great start as I was exhausted, it is a long flight. I was born in Trinidad and when asked for an address the person on reception was obviously not impressed with the local address... More

This hotel may be nice for locals, but they cheat foreigners. Maybe it's because Trinidad doesn't rely on tourism as a big part of the economy, but you get cheated if you are a visitor and not a local. My family ate dinner here as part of a family trip. We stayed at the Hilton and were cheated on taxi... More

My family of 8 took two taxis from the Trinidad Hilton to the Kapok Hotel, a place where we had enjoyed eating when we lived here in the 1970s. After our meal, we asked the woman working at the front desk to call us two taxis to return to the Hilton. Instead of doing as we requested, she called a... More

Kapok Hotel is a wonderful place to stay since it offers all the amenities associated with having a comfortable and short visit. It's proximity to the QPS is also an asset especially if you're attending an event there like we were. What irks me somewhat about the place is how cluster phobic I tend to feel in the corridors and... More

I was so impressed with Kapok. For a hotel that has been around for a long time they have kept such a high standard. The rooms, the restaurant, the lobby, the pool, I have no complaints. Although it's close to the city it's still quiet and relaxing. I went for a weekend get away to rest and was able to... More

We went to Trinidad & Tobago for my birthday in November and stayed in the Kapok Hotel. The personal was so friendly that I fell in love with them. Always ready to help and give information I needed. The room was small but had everything we needed and above all very clean. We had clean bed sheets and towels everyday.... More

The hotel is an older facility with great ambience and architectural lines. Great workout room and pool. The front desk staff were professional, accommodating with great wit. Great restaurant on the 8th floor with a staff that could have been friendlier but then I was there on a Holiday weekend . . . And I'm sure they would have preferred... More

Great value for money. Stayed for the weekend. Got a discount off the stay because it was a birthday celebration. Great view of Port of Spain from the seventh floor. Complimentary Wifi and breakfast. Wifi worked good throughout the hotel. The breakfast was good and where it is severed on the 8th floor is an amazing view of the city.

Ten day business trip, staying at the Kapok Hotel. Good room, clean and good selection of TV channels. Very friendly staff - and plenty of them to ask for help/ advice/ directions. Easy parking for car. Buffet breakfast was good every day. Kava bar/ restaurant very popular for lunch and evening meals. Handy for a walk round the Savannah too.

Traveled to Port of Spain Trinidad for work and stayed here. The staff were outstanding in their eagerness to ensure that everything was ready for the seminars. The rooms are well maintained and clean. And the housekeeping staff are always ready to assist with any problems. My thanks for a great stay!
