Me and my colleague stayed here while we worked at a nearby office for a month. We think its quite good for the Solomon Island hotel standard. The room is pretty clean and the same goes for the bathroom. They are still using the older noisier aircon unit so that could be a problem for some but we don't have... More

This place was a good find.Set on a steep hill and you reach the rooms via a cable car which is easy to use. I was very lucky with the room I stayed in. On the top of the hill the room was very large with basic furniture and a safe. However all the windows had the most spectacular view... More

We stayed at King Solomon hotel everytime we visited Honiara (total of 4 times). Surpassing service with friendly, 'can-do' minded staff is one of the boasting reasons why we choose this service. Though at times our team reached a number of 20 (meaning 20 various requests) they were very flexible with the requests, pursing to provide the quality service. Reservation... More

Stayed overnight for a layover. Room was a little run down but clean. Breakfast was very average. Was sent a bill for 2 meals and beverages that were billed to my room before I had arrived. Wifi was only available in the lobby. Staff were indifferent.

Shane Kennedy, owner of the king Solomon Hotel was a great host. I stayed here for 6 months . Shane personally greets each guest and evenings in the bar and restaurant were fun filled with Shane and his staff taking an interest in you, what you do and your pleasures. While somewhat limited, the breakfast buffet was well prepared and... More

My five-week stay at the King Solomon Hotel was a delight. Whenever I had a concern it was immediately tended to by one of the managers, Karina, or even Shane, the very kind and welcoming owner himself. It has all of the comforts of a luxury hotel, the rooms are meticulously clean and the services are near perfect. It is... More

Love this hotel. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, and the rooms are comfortable, well serviced and air conditioned. Its the only hotel in town that makes you feel like you are on a tropical island, with fresh flowers everywhere and cocktails in coconuts.
