I booked on line. No reservation when I arrived at the airport. When I talked the shuttle van to take me to the hotel, they had no record of my reservation. At the desk they asked if I could forward their confirmation email back to them. This meant logging on to their wireless, which costs money. So I suggested I... More

The hotel has a relaxing surrounding From hotel to airport it only take 10 to 15min.. But the main draw back is that there are no places to shop around the hotel.. If we want to go to downtown Port Moresby, we need to take another 20min.. For breakfast buffet spread, really disappointed.. Not much to eat if you come... More

I had ever stayed at this hotel three times. Excellent hotel and staff were friendly and charming. I had ever stayed in a single room and suite rooms with espresso machines and coffee capsules and fresh milk available in the fridge. Indian cuisine is also very good, just ahead of the weekend then it will hear the music from the... More

Stayed here twice. Lamana is a good quality hotel. Rooms are very good. Air con excellent. Food good. The only downfall is WIFI being patchy and expensive. This is probably more of telco problem but is awkward for business and personal purposes. Otherwise a thunbs up from me

The Lamana is a very well run hotel in the heart of Port Moresby's Administrative district, close to Government departments and some commercial and business buildings. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Whilst there are some newer hotels starting to make a difference in POM the Lamana still holds its own. The staff are faultless and polite barely describes... More

I've stayed at the Lamana three times in the past few months. As always, Port Moresby is a bit of a shock to the system with the barbed wire fences everywhere and the need for secure transport, but the Lamana always feels welcoming and secure. The food is definitely the best aspect of the place, with some excellent Indian cuisine... More
