I spent 7 nights at Nerima Lodge and it was exactly what I was after. An easy walk into town, located amongst the locals, very friendly and helpful staff, nice breakfast provided every morning, clean and tidy. I stayed there by myself in an ensuite room. A few things to be aware of: 1. If you're a light sleeper, there... More

5 of us stayed at Nerima Lodge for 1 night as we transited through Tongatapu. We called the lodge from Eua and the staff arranged our airport pick up at 7:30am. Even though we arrived very early in the morning we were allowed to check in and relax and were welcomed with hugs. We had been on a sailboat for... More

The standards of this structure have nothing to do with the average of the south pacific. This accommodation is clean, very well organized, with every comfort and conducted by a professional and friendly staff. I think it's one of the best I've ever stayed at, and both for the kindness and helpfulness of the staff and the amount of facilities... More

It's probably one of the best choices in Tongatapu. This bed and breakfast is clean, the staff is frienly and always ready to help, breakfast delicious and you have everything you need: clean towels, internet connection, mosquito repelent, kitchen for cooking and so on! It is close to the town and you get there just by a short walk. Hardly... More

Stayed for just one night before flying out of Tonga but would have been happy to stay longer! It is quite close to town. I was pleased with the facilities: I had a comfortable room, wifi, good breakfast - even had the weekly menu up on the bedroom wall which made my mouth water. Very helpful and accommodating hosts in... More

Nerima rates as a good option while in the capital of Tonga, Nuku'alofa. It is budget of course, but that said, it has a lot of advantages over, say, Toni's Guesthouse, which has various houses and probably more 'vibe' but is miles away from the town centre. Nerima is 5 to 10 mins walk along a (Tongan style) main street... More

Nerima is the place to stay if you come to Tonga. The rooms, bathrooms, kitchen etc was always clean and tidy i felt very comfortable and safe here. It is only a 5min walking distance to town which saved us more money. A huge bonus for the yummy breakfast Topai and delicious Papaya jam, mmmmmmn thanks to Tomu you are... More

Nerima is wonderfully located just a short walk to the centre of town. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. Paul and Ta went out of their way to welcome us, take us to the local shops and were fantastic in helping us to resolve a potentially very difficult travel situation where our daughter was almost stranded in Fiji on...

The thing that I liked the most about this great value option is that our hosts were friendly and so helpful when we had a near disaster with our flights. Paul and Ta were like very good friends to us despite not knowing us. They went out of their way to help to smooth out our problems and we had... More
