From what I understand most things in Papua New Guinea are overpriced in that things are expensive but the quality is low. Unfortunately the gateway is no exception. Below is a summary of positives and negatives: Positives: close to airport, clean, has a nice pool, well equipped gym with treadmills, bikes and extensive free weights and machines Negatives: wifi is...

We recently stayed there for a few hours before our flight from Port Moresby to Hoskins airport. We were very happy with our room and made use of the coffee making tray and the iron. It was good to have a shower and a rest before flying as we had flown from London to Singapore then on to Port Moresby... More

I agree with an earlier reviewer who advised that the Gateway is improving substantially. I too have stayed at the Gateway several times over the past 10 years. In the past I felt there were issues with the food, rooms, and customer service. All of these have improved to the point that it offers a far more cost effective place... More

We stayed at the Gateway twice, going in and out of PNG. The rooms we had were excellent--beyond our expectations for an airport hotel anywhere in the world. But the staff is what sets this hotel at a high level. From the efficiency and service of the check-in counter, to housekeepers and maintenance people who rushed to fix a problem... More

This hotel was outstanding value for money. When I arrived there were beautifully folded towels on the bed with a flower in them, icy cold water, and a platter of fresh fruit.
