Georgetown hotels and hostels
Palace De Leon
A completely equipped two-bedroom apartment can easily sleep four to five people in this plant-filled colonial building. It's run by a large, lively family.
Eena's Guest House
Across the street from Florentene's but much cleaner and safer. The matchbox-sized rooms here are quite homey. This place is usually frequented by Guyanese, but owners are thrilled to receive foreign visitors.
Dark and airless motel-style rooms with TV have good beds and are very safe and comfortable.
This is a boutique-style hotel with colonial architecture, big bright windows and extremely helpful staff. All the rooms have wi-fi and credit cards are accepted for a 5% service fee.
Rima Guest House
The only real backpackers in town, this professionally run place is extremely safe and can help arrange just about any activity in Guyana; large airy rooms are spotless and appealingly colonial.
Stay in one of Georgetown's colonial gems. The white louvers, ginger bread details and art-adorned corridors make this feel like a hideaway for glamorous film stars.
