Steve D At your own peril. I have been at the King Solomon for 2 months now on a long term work contract and this place is woeful. There is music on Thursday evening until midnight, Friday and Saturday nights the music goes on until 2 am and not your normal small band back ground music but a band that... More

Hotels in Honiara are expensive and this is one of the better priced ones. Our room was spacious, comfortable and clean with satellite TV, a fan and a properly working aircon as well as an okay bathroom with mostly reliable hot water. The hotel is quite quirky with great gardens, cool wood carvings, a nice pool area and the cable... More

I've stayed at the King Solomons Hotel a number of times and of all the hotels in and around Honiara CBD I think it represents the best value for money. The staff are friendly and attentive, the food is reasonable but not great, the rooms are big but at times a little under maintained and the décor is mid- 70's... More

Rooms are too old & very poor maintenance. Hotel concept & wood work is breathtaking. Value for money I will rate 4 out of 10. Friendly staff & poor service. I guess you have to expect it any where in this city.

Stayed at King Solomons Hotel to sample the local experiences of Honiara. Staff were very helpful, and it wasn't a problem changing rooms to get a balcony. Atmosphere was wonderful and food was good for the Solomons. Finicular railway up to the rooms was a treat.

Stayed in this hotel for a week recently. The room had everything we needed and was clean. We had a few ants once but I left candy on the counter unwrapped in the South Pacific it's my own fault. The air conditioners worked great. We don't really have any complaints about this hotel. It is very central to the part... More

Our stay here was OK - but if I'd ever visit Honiara again I would probably choose a different hotel. Pros: - Room was very spacious and clean - The cable car going up to the rooms is a nice novelty at first, will be especially fun for kids - Pizzas in the restaurant are cooked in a wood oven...

Nice hotel for a long stays- as you can stay in a homey looking appartments with kitchen, though for short stays you are accomodaten in lover rooms- I would say- the lower it is the worse quality you get. - pricey - insects in the room

The rooms are dated and basic but definitely clean. Restaurant was good, wood fired pizza was delicious. Lovely pool area and has a functional gym. Great location. From what I saw best value for money in Honiara.

Great place to stay and good value for money. Thursday night is a all you can eat dinner. There is also a show with locals dancing. It pays to book unless you want to eat early.
