I recently stayed at The Old Gin House for a tourism conference and truly enjoyed my time at both the property and exploring Statia. While there were some small quirks, I definitely recommend this hotel. The good: ~ Great location! The island doesn't have many swimmable beach areas, but this hotel is a 5 min walk to the beach.

Room had one chair--no cupboard to hang clothes--only a cabinet with shelves. It was either put the suitcase on the chair and stand to use the computer on the desk, or keep moving the suitcase every time you wanted to sit down. Just a 2 star motel type room.

The Old Gin House is absolutely the best place to stay in Statia! The staff works with you. The rooms are fully air conditioned and comfortable. The restaurant is great though a bit expensive. I plan to stay again!

I would compare this hotel to a clean Days Inn. It is very basic and clean. However, some of the people we were traveling with had problems with hot water and their t.v.

We stayed in a room with ocean view which was amazing. The room was really comfortable and cozy. The restaurant is right on the beach with with a great view and the food is pretty good. If I have to say one bad thing, it would be about the staff that is not nice. Either at the restaurant, reception or... More

The Old Gin House is now under newer, younger management. The rooms are "neater" and have fresh everything. The grounds are cleaner than in the past with better lighting at night - we never were concerned but it just looks nicer. You can tell there is some youth in the new more up-to-date menus in the restaurant, more couches around... More

The Old Gin House hotel is located in Lower Town Oranjestad just below the Fort Oranje. It is at a beautiful location with nice views of the Bay and the Island of Saba.

We stayed at this hotel for one night in March, in the midst of a two week sail around the Caribbean with our friends on their 43 ft. sailboat.
