Nice guesthouse in safe area of Port of Spain, Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby yet quiet and secure at night. Staff at reception very pleasant and helpful, About fifteen minutes stroll from center of town.

About a third to half of the cost of most other places. You get a little more basic but it's still a nice enough place to stay. Showers work and are hot which is good enough for me. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and the night guard is always nice to have. Location wise if you want the bars...

As the owner said "nothing fancy, just clean". Trinidad isn't especially cheap anyway, so this place is budget but not fantastically good value. We paid $75 per night for three person private room with private bathroom and AC. Location is near some restaurants and bars. Breakfast not included.

If you don't want to spend a lot of money this is a great place to stay. Helpful staff, nice restaurants close by. I'd come again. You can get to wherever you want to go in Port of Spain from here without too much difficulty and the rent cars as well.

Stayed there one night. The room was simple but sufficient to meet all your needs. A/C being the most important. It was quaint and satisfying. The room was pretty clean and everything else was good for the cheap price in its location. $65 us is what we paid. At night they locked the front gate and had a security guard....

I'm giving the Melbourne Inn a five-star rating because it is a great place to stay if you're looking for something in the budget range. I wouldn't give it five stars if I were stacking it against some of the other hotels in Port of Spain, however, I found it to be one of the better budget places I've ever...

“lower floors have a faster way outside and is safer because at night up stairs you will have to come down a staircase but if you will not leave at night you are fine! Enjoy Your Stay!”
