Great hotel with nice bar and views. The staff are helpful and friendly. The restaurant is currently being upgraded but has a reasonable selection of food and wine. Rooms are pleasant. A haven from the edginess of Port Moresby.

My great disappointment with this luxury hotel is the very slow and expensive internet. For me it was a nightmare to have a video conference with my company because simply internet is not fast enough. When I say fast enough I'm talking about any cheap and reasonable connection so easily found in any ragamuffin hostel world wide. It was a... More

I have stayed at Airways a few times now. It is a most comfortable and secure hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately the week I was there some significant renovations were in progress which detracted from dining experiences. This was creating issues for the staff also. My only comment is that the menu in the restaurants could be improved... More

This hotel is convenient as it's close to airport. Very proud about many awards well exposed at reception. The rooms are confortable and the staff is friendly. But when it comes to practical things, the problems start. If you're in business trip that needs fast internet to send/receive huge amount of data, go to other place. The overpriced wifi (100...

Spent two nights at the Airways Hotel recently. Great location near the airport with views of the highlands. My room was on the ground floor, very clean and spacious. The Crabtree & Evelyn bath products were an unexpected but nice surprise. The room could do with some better lighting especially around the desk area. The in room wireless internet (purchased...

I stayed here as it is very close and convenient to the airport. I won't stay here again. The Motel is nice but over priced. The restaurant is also very 'flash' but lacks the basics. The free wifi when you check in will cost you 100 Kina at checkout. I have had a look around and talked to other travellers... More

The Airways is generally regarded as the premier hotel in Port Moresby and it generally lives up to that reputation. My room included the butler service which was very good as it was never a problem to have laundry washed, shoes polished or just ask for things like more tea bags. The beds and rooms are very nice, with air-conditioning... More

With out a doubt the Airways Hotel is one of the best and safest Hotels in the Port Moresby area, but it has its problems, The rooms are beautifully furnished and designed But they are dark too dark to read at the desk even with the desk light on and blinds drawn. To make the TV work requires a degree... More

It happened that one there was water outage in Port Moresby in 2012 and we couldn't find water anywhere close to where we were living so we decided to check into a hotel just so our kids could have access to water and good food. It turned out all the hotels were booked out so we ended up at Airways... More
