Booked through Expedia; though their other two choices were cheaper, we went for the more expensive one, as this was advertised with "buffet breakfast." Six nights; room only done once; though that time the beds were made, I don't even think we got clean sheets. Never got fresh towels; finally after three days, we had to go to the front...

Dear Dirk, we are sorry to hear that your stay was not what you expected. We will discuss your experiences with the team, In regards to the buffet breakfast, this has to be a misunderstanding as the only breakfast we are serving is a take away breakfast. Thank you for the feedback.

The service was quick and easy, it is a very small hotel and the people was very friendly and everything was near by the hotel... The bed was super comfy, the air conditioner kept nice and cold for the night and the walk to the harbor was just the icing on the cake. The staff was super professional and friendly...

Me and my girlfriend booked here. Really sick place. Nice staff. I'm probably gonna keep booking here. It's not over the top but still gives a nice feel. Would like some more stuff for the bathroom. Buts it's cool

The rooms at Wave our clean but really small. Our room was about the size of a small shipping container (or at least the design reminded us of one). We are on our last leg of our trip in Curacao and were planning on having a refrigerator in our room (as was stated on the website but alas there isn't...

Wave Hotel is a good hotel for travelers on a budget. It was a bit hard to find, especially since we rented a car and there aren't many street signs. So if you do rent a car upon arrival, as long as you follow the sign for Otrobanda from the airport, it will take you directly towards the hotel. The...

The people working there were outstanding. Very friendly, very helpful. The location is situated in a somewhat shady area but close to everything. The rooms were fine except the doors are paper thin. The room next to us had the alarm set but nobody was in it to turn it off when it went off at 7:00am. Really bothered us....

I stayed here twice in a period of 10 days. At first there were a few minor admin issues, but that was partly my fault as I had to change my plans slightly about 2 weeks before arrival, but this was quickly sorted out. Staff are friendly, helpful and have a good sense of humour. The rooms are big, bright,...

The room is very basic. Even though online booking site says "Room opens up to a balcony, has memory foam mattress and hair dryer" they only have Two rooms with balcony and bathroom does NOT have a dryer.

Good value for the price, but nothing too exciting about it. It is clean. Great location! In the center of Otrobanda. They do not have regular cleaning room service all the time. They give blue towels that are ripped. The room is small feels like an European hostel.
