Centrally located in Gustavia, Sunset Hotel overlooks the harbor and is within short walking distance of many restaurants and boutiques. All of the budget-friendly, spacious rooms are basic, but well equipped with air conditioning, televisions, mini refrigerators stocked with beverages for purchase and telephones. Some rooms also have balconies and/or views of the harbor. Children four and younger stay free of charge.
The property features a shared outdoor terrace, where breakfast is served daily for a small fee. Discounted car rentals are available via the hotel and can be picked up and dropped off directly at the airport, which is about a 15-minute drive from the hotel. The ferry dock is located right across the street from the hotel, and the beach is just a short walk from the property. There’s also a coffee shop next door, and a small grocery store within a few minutes’ walk. Parking and Wi-Fi are offered complimentary.

The Sunset Hotel was recommended by a friend who stayed there before. We were only in St. Barth's for two days, so this was the perfect place to go and very reasonable. We came into port from Sint Maarten and literally walked into the hotel across the street. The host was very nice (French) and showed us to our room. It is a very casual hotel and rooms are located on the 2nd floor. They provide breakfast (danish/jelly) in the morning with coffee/tea or hot chocolate. Ask for a room with water view. The room has AC and a great view from the balcony. The only thing we noticed was it can be a little noisy because you are right were the small ships come in bring in people from other islands/tours. Things get going early in the morning, but it was a great place to stay with basic comforts. The beds were comfortable. Big bathroom in the two bed suite.
This a motel not hotel. The location and breakfast is very good. But, not for a long stay. Max 2 nights. Outdated old furniture. Old linens and bedding. No hot water. Old shower. Very noisy early in the morning. The staff is not friendly at all.
