St John's Besucherinformationen für Gäste

St John’s is a city that was built around it’s harbour, a dramatic inlet approached through the 200m-wide channel known as The Narrows. There was a time when the port was crammed full of ships from a wealth of nations, but these days, there is less traffic to the port, and it attracts mostly container ships and oil construction barges.

This has not stopped the growth of a vibrant nightlife in the city, and rough houses that used to be found along the waterfront have now been replaced by chic restaurants, stylish shops and professional office buildings. The waterfront is the social hub, and features a smattering of bars which showcase the best of Newfoundland folk music. This is a great reason to visit the city in itself, another is that the city forms the backdrop of the hit Canadian TV show, Republic of Doyle.

The number of seafarers who inhabit the city is dwindling, and instead the city attracts white-collar workers, artists and students from all corners of Canada.

With the exception of Signal Hill, the attractions in the city are within walking distance of each other. Museums include the Railway Coastal Museum, Provincial Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador and the East Rider Motorcycle Museum.

Getting there

The city is served by St John’s International Airport. St John’s is also the eastern terminus of the Trans-Canada Highway, which is one of the longest national highways in the world.

Geschichte von St John's

St John’s is thought to be North America’s oldest city, as year round settlement is thought to have begun sometime after 1630, with seasonal habitation beginning long before that. The city is named St John’s because Sebastian Cabot and his father became the first Europeans to sail into the harbour on the feast day of St John the Baptist (June 24th).

St John’s has been the location of many transatlantic firsts due to it’s location on the east coast of Canada. Guglielmo Marconi received the first trans-Atlantic wireless signal in St. John's on December 1901 from his wireless station in Poldhu, Cornwall. The city was also the starting point for the first non-stop transatlantic aircraft flight by Alcock and Browen in a modified Vickers Vimy IV bomber in June 1919.

During the Second World War, the harbour supported Royal Navy and Royal Canadian Navy ships that were engaged in anti-submarine warfare. It was also the site of an American Army Air Force base, Fort Pepperrell, that was established as part of the "Lend-Lease" agreement between the United Kingdom and United States. The base was transferred to Canadian control in 1960 and is now known as CFS St. John's. The Knights of Columbus Hostel fire in December 1942, saw 99 military and civilian lives lost.

The facility was very clean with staff cleaning every day. All the staff at the registration desk were knowledable, helpful, always available and friendly. I felt safe in the knowledge that there was always someone there. The rooms were comfortable and access to a kitchen was very much appreciated. I will definitely stay there again.

The easy proximity of the hotel to the university and the low price makes this site excellent for conferences. The student help at the registration desk was amazing. They were patient, extremely helpful, and very professional.

The room I stayed in had a very sticky door. It needed to be shoved hard in order to open fully. It didn’t seem like any of the other doors in the hall had this problem. It got a bit tiresome to open it this way. Otherwise rooms were good and the staff was very friendly and helpful!

Good location, modern facility... Breakfasts included... as well as access to pool and gym (not used by us). Beds are all single in dorms so the suite was 2 single beds and a bathroom with access to shared kitchen.

Staff were great, very friendly! We kept locking ourselves out of our rooms though--it might be helpful to have the option for both roommates to have access to both rooms in case one gets locked out. The place was very clean and comfortable.

Since I was here for a conference I had the addition of a meal plan. I found the food poor. My only problem with the accommodations was the bed was very high.

The front desk employees were excellent: very friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating. They didn't even mind running upstairs when we locked our cards in our rooms. A lovely facility. Love the little light over the bed - great for late night reading. The dining room employees were very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the food and had plenty of choices.

Providing , or selling round the neck card holders would prevent people locking themselves out of their rooms ! Overall very pleased with the accommodation and breakfast. Will reccommnd MUN to friends.

very good value for the cost, with continental breakfast included. I would have liked to see plain yogurt included the breakfast, instead of sweetened ones, but then I did not expect any breakfast.
