Our Guesthouse


From our first visit to Suriname we were so impressed by this unique South-American country that we quickly decided to start a hotel of our own. This idea resulted in running our own Guesthouse Famiri in the capital Paramaribo!

We can tell you everything about the beauty, the diversity and hospitality of Switi Sranang (wonderful Suriname), but it is best to experience it for yourself. And staying at Guesthouse Famiri will certainly proof to be the ideal place.

Guesthouse Famiri was once the home of a minister. It is situated in the quiet, residential area Rainville, 76 Dr Axwijkstraat, at walking distance from the shopping and entertainment center of Paramaribo.

Guesthouse Famiri offers nice rooms, all equipped with air conditioning. We also have a spacious balcony and a lovely garden.

Every morning we serve a full breakfast to order with div. breads, meats, cheeses, sweet, savory, two types of fruit, juice, coffee and misc. teas, yogurt, cereal.

In Suriname Dutch is still the main language. Mind that mostly people will hear you, but they will not always understand you.

With Guesthouse Famiri as your base you can explore and experience all of Suriname. We ourselves are experienced travelers, so we like to share ideas to make your stay in Suriname as pleasant as possible. Would you like to make a trip to the former plantations? Or spend a couple of days trekking through the jungle? Suppose you prefer a fishing trip? And what about spotting dolphins in the Suriname river? You even might want some real action and go for an adventurous expedition tour ending at night in your own hammock overlooking the river? Just tell us! Have a look at www.anneketrips.com.
