The staff here were exceedingly helpful to me during my stay. I got in a spot of bother because my taxi failed to show up and there were no other options available and the staff went out of their way to help me find a solution. Thanks very much!
The Ballahou Hotel is located in between the military barracks and the beach. In Kourou town there are no taxi’s and the staff at Ballahou were absolutely fantastic in dropping us where we needed to go and offering to pick us up. They were also very helpful in organising our onward transport and booking at the next hotel in St Laurent. The room was a good size with a TV and the bathroom was extremely clean. There was a kitchenette with stove top, sink, fridge and some utensils. Staying at this hotel certainly enhanced our stay in Kourou. We would absolutely stay here again and would give 6 stars for service!
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.
We went to Korou without plans where to stay and found this hotel in the loney planet guide. Pefect option. As French Guyana is not cheap the hotel is in the low-mid range price category. 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 discount because the hotel made the reservation. We were there around Christmas and we got good recommendations for dining out and which restaurants might be open during the holidays. Perfect choice. And a we only speak a little french we communicated in English and Spanish.
The rooms are spacious, clean and colourfull and even tho its hard to make conversation since I dont speak French and their English isn't all that, many many complements for miss Charlotte for trying and helping us out big time !! Not gonna bore you with details but she was a great help with a lot of problems we've encountered. So great service !! Its near the supermarket and places you can eat so convenient located.
