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

Coming from afar its great to come to the city stay in Lamana and do business locally. Usually good facilities and a good restaurant with reasonable food and service. We like the proximity to the central areas of the town and the quiet safety of the premise. The suites are comfortable and clean we had a ground floor suite with... More

Stayed just one night at Lamana when my local accomm lost power. At short notice we were able to book a basic room, just a double bed with TV, bar fridge, tea, coffee, kettle, air con (most important), spacious bathroom with hot shower, very small closet. In Moresby all the basics are much appreciated and never taken for granted. The... More

I stayed for 3 nights on a business trip and was apparently in an "Executive suite". It looks much like the Queen Deluxe advertised on their website. The room had everything necessary for a comfortable stay including a very fancy coffee machine with a selection of coffee pellets. I thought it was broken as it was plugged in but nothing... More

I travelled to Port Moresby in May 2014 for business for the first time and this was my first stay at Lamana. Overall the room was average at best for the price. There was not much closet space. Bed was comfortable and aircon worked well. Internet was expensive but worked every time I needed it. The food on offer at... More

I have stayed at the Lamana Hotel many times while travelling for business in Port Moresby. Its one of the nicer places in Moresby and is walking distance to a major supermarket, mall, and cinema. The rooms are nice with a double bed and a nice size bathroom. The beds are comfortable and you get a decent night sleep. The... More

Stayed here for a week running a workshop for work so needing a good night's sleep. The local staff are great - efficient, helpful and friendly. HOWEVER On Wednesday night it was the State of Origin, so very noisy at the night club which was right next to my room. That was loud but manageable. Thursday was just ABYSMAL. The... More
