2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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. The restaurant has something for everyone including the best pizza I've eaten. Built into... More

Staying in Honiara? Don't expect 5 star...don't expect 4 star (unless you stay at the Heritage). If you are looking for an authentic Solomons experience, then the King Solomon is for you. Authentic décor? Check! It was authentic when it was first made many years ago. Like stairs? This is the place for you - it has calf-munching, thigh crunching... More

The hotel has a lot of steps - but is central in town - close to Point Cruz Yacht Club and has clean and comfortable rooms - the restaurant is good and the little café next door is excellent - would thoroughly recommend if stating in Honiara

We were forced to stay in Honiara because of flight delays and we were put up in the King Solomon Hotel. So glad we did because my previous overnight stay in Honiara with another hotel was nothing short of just bearable. Shane, the staff, the meals and everything about the place was excellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Oh... More

Kong Solomon offers unbeatable value for money in Honiara as far as any of the western hotels are concerned, with no hidden extras such as room tax or power bills. In addition, a buffet breakfast that would set up anyone for the day, is included in the room rates. All this, plus friendly, helpful and obliging staff, guarantees a memorable... More
