aruba getaway

Would recommend Tue, Sep 17, 2013
after reading some of the reviews I was concerned about staying here but have to say I enjoyed it. On the weekends you do here the bikes rev going down the main road but through the week that does not happen the planes you can notice a litte but not bad enough to bother you. The pool and hot tub is very nice and the staff is friendly. If you can get the upgraded rooms the safes and rooms are niceier. Overall I would recommed this hotel to a friend. The hotel is in the center of the island so it is a drive to get to shops or some of the beaches but not bad.

SOUL BEACH

Would not recommend Wed, May 30, 2012
This hotel was perfect for the Soul Beach 2012. Nikky Beach was the concert location & it was directly across the street from this hotel. It had no curb appeal. Exterior paint was needed and lobby could have used a make-over. Upon, check-in, they had no record of my booking. I wasnt happy to hear this and they were booked full. I whipped out a copy of my reservation and waited 30 min for a room to magically appear. Breakfast was hearty with eggs, pasteries,bacon or sausage. Room could have been cleaner and floors could have used a scrub with bleach. Bar staff was wonderful ! ! Stay here if you have low expectations. 2 stars is the correct rating.

Entertainment hint

Nikky Beach was the location of Soul Beach 2012 concerts. This hotel was directly across the street from the venue. I was able to walk >10 min to the market place which had lots of dining and attractions.

Nice Place To Stay

Would recommend Sun, Mar 11, 2012
Very short distance from the airport but the taxi was still an outrageous price. Short walking distance to the beach with nice picture taking views. The breakfast was great they had free wifi the room was nice and the staff was all very friendly it was a great place to stay at.

Money saver

Walk a few minutes to downtown and save a lot of money on the cost of a taxi and walk back to the hotel to get a taxi to the airport to save even more.

Spring Break Trip

Would recommend Fri, Mar 9, 2012
Talk of the Town is a great place to stay. Not only is it walking distance from the center of town and right across the street from the beach, but its unpretentious, tranquil atmosphere makes it a great stay. It is the perfect environment to just sit back and relax without having to compete with the hoards of tourists in one of the larger resorts. The service is extremely hospitable and personal. You aren't just a number among hundreds of people. Special thanks to Ilidio at the front desk for not only giving us thorough advice about Aruba but for also taking the time to be a friend. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place.

Attractions

Take the time to drive around the island and get acquainted with it. Aruba has tons to see and it's not difficult to find your way around the island. The staff at this hotel is extremely helpful with that. FYI: an SUV is best if you are going to Arikok National Park. A sedan won't work too easily...

The hotel was Disgusting

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 28, 2010
we had a wonderful time in Aruba. Except the hotel was filthy, toilet didn't work, towels were disgusting, pillows had stain. They serve watery eggs for breakfast. [...] should have never referred their customer's to talk of the town hotel. For that reason I will never do business with [...] again.

Attractions

Be sure to visit the national bridge, light house and all that. Our tour guy from the DePalm Tour, Ray, was very informative and had a great sense of humor.

Talk of the Town Hotel, Aruba

Would not recommend Wed, May 26, 2010
We've stayed at other hotel in Aruba with cheaper rate that was more upscale, with better service than what we paid for at Talk of the Town. The "hot breakfast" left a lot to be desired, the closet in the room had an awful, musty odor that made clothes hung in the closet reek.
