China Town Hotel

Reviewed 21 July 2017

I stayed here for 3 nights as part of a 4wk Geckos tour through Central America and it was the only accommodation I didn't like. The place has the atmosphere of something I imagine you'd find in downtown Beijing (unsurprisingly I guess) - with drab colours, an outdated feel and a shoddy casino out the front - and I feel it's such a shame to stay here given the wonderful laid back beach vibes found everywhere else on the island. It has a pool but it's not a beautiful one.
Worse than that though was that the water coming out of the taps in my room stank!! It smelt like it was contaminated with algae or sewage or something and it was bad enough that I decided I'd rather go without showering than get under that water.
On the plus side the beds were large, the place was clean and there was A/C and free wifi. Can't comment on price because I didn't book it. Also my room was up 3-4 flights of stairs which might bother some people.

Have just got back from a night out and my room mate and I have realised a few things of ours are missing! Not too happy. Only materialistic items, but when your travelling for months you need clothes... that have now been taken! The only people that have been in our room is the cleaners and us. On the plus side, the air conditioning is fantastic.. that's about it!

As travellers rather than tourists we only need a comfy bed a good shower and working quiet aircon in a safe environment. They provided att of that and we had a largd room with 2 double beds. This hotel hosts lots of tours and as such is well patronised. Barely a 3 star.

The staff is great!! Super noisy. Very tiny rooms. Limited privacy. Good wifi!! trip hazards all over the place. No fridge in room. No A/C just fans unless specifically noted. Some shady McShadersons about in the bar / restaurant downstairs.
No elevator.

Stayed here as part of a tour. A bit back from beach so not sure about rooms that supposedly have sea views. Air con did work very well - vital here as gets very very hot. Swimming pool sits in full sun so a bit warm. Staff will not give out wifi password - you need to take your device to reception & they will log you on.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to China Town Hotel, located on one of Belize's most peaceful island, Caye Caulker. Our hotel offers a quality of service that will appeal to all sectors of the guests. From the moment you step into our reception area, you will be greeted by our courteous and friendly staff members that will offer you all the service that you will need to make you feel right. China Town Hotel is a very short walking distance from one of the main entry of the island. The water taxi terminal. It's also a block away from the captivating waters of the Caribbean Sea. Many of the main business are only minutes away from our location such as the local bank with ATM, Pharmacy, BTL, Caye Caulker Airport and golf cart rentals. We are also one of the few hotels that have their own restaurant and supermarket and bar. Perhaps, it's the simple pleasures that will delight you the most, if you can take advantage of the roof top that's fully equipped with relaxing lounge chairs. Just lay back and soak up some of that Belizean Sun Shine! ... more   less
