The ‘Pasanggrahan’, Royal Guest House, at Frontstreet 15 is the oldest hotel in town that is still functioning in the center of Philipsburg. It was built in 1904 as the government guesthouse – “Pasanggrahan” is Indonesian for “guesthouse” – it was common throughout the overseas parts of the Dutch kingdom to have these types of lodgings for important guests. Former queen Juliana stayed here during her first visit to the Island.


The Pasanggrahan is in the Philipsburg area of St Maarten / St Martin.
