We stayed for 2 nights at the Raintree Lodge, a small property with pleasant courtyard garden in the Boroko region of Port Moresby. We were pleased with the spacious room and comfortable king size bed, and the bathroom was well appointed with an enormous shower. The A/C and TV worked well. Contrary to several other reviews we had free WiFi... More

We stayed for two nights before leaving PNG. It has all you need for comfort. Fridge and tea making facilities, and tv (Australian stations if I remember correctly). Very spacious showers. No hair dryer but you can ask to borrow one from reception. A restaurant on site. A bit of a way out of town but airport side and you... More

The hotel itself is small but the rooms are large and comfortably appointed; WiFi is extra but you pay for the time used so buy the 24 hour pass if you're staying a while. We did manage to walk around the neighbourhood with a security guard but it's discouraged. Restaurant food is limited but acceptable and the staff are friendly... More

Knowing Port Moresby, the Raintree Lodge is one of the more affordable places to stay near the centre of the city. The rooms were spacious and clean. A nice touch we noticed on arrival was that the staff had taken the courtesy of turning on our room aircons to pre-cool the rooms (- Port Moresby can get a bit hot... More

Being a PNG and not based in Port Moresby it is hard to stay with relatives or to stay in a Hotel. Value for money and home away from home is quite when you need your own space being in the city for business, you time, passing through with family it's quite hard so if you want all the space...

We had an overnight stay in POM between flights. We arrived at night and the 10 minute drive was a bit daunting between the airport and the hotel. (we have travelled extensively around the world and 3rd world destinations) Upon arriving at the hotel we went through 2 gates. Once inside the hotel complex you would never know what was... More

Everything considered about hotels in Papua New Guinea, this one was nice. At $250 a night, we expected a little better but this is Papua New Guinea. The staff was helpful, but had a hard time to let us out of the hotel as they said that it was very dangerous. They finally agreed to let us go to the... More
