Set on a leafy back street one block above Albert Park, the long running South Seas Private Hotel is a peculiar establishment. Austere, sleepy, more like a no frills boarding school than a hotel, it appears frozen in time. It is! The reception is behind bars. But the wooden hotel is clean, functional and well managed. In the evening guests... More

I stayed 3nights in a door, the hotel is good looking but the common bathroom is only one toilet and one shower upstairs (which are locking with great difficulty!) and 2 downstairs but because we were real few in the hotel it was fine. The real problem is there is no electrical plug in the room and just one bathroom... More

The building is amazingly well-maintained for its age, and everything was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed walking into town and to the museum from this convenient location, and our room (#38) was very quiet, well-ventilated, and had a nice view of trees and shrubs. The bed was a bit hard. The front office charges a refundable deposit for items like towels... More

I was only in Suva for one week and had to stay within a tight budget. I opted for a private room which gave me separate toilet and bath. The room was clean, sheets were changed daily, there was no aircon but the overhead fan worked fine though it could be hot closer to the summer season. The Staff are... More

We headed over to Suva to see what the capital had to offer and booked into the South Seas Private Hotel as it was the cheapest place we could find. We booked a double room for a couple of nights with a shared bathroom. The room itself was clean and tidy enough, but felt a little bit sparse. It might... More

Lots of steps up to the place and a little walk into town. Close to Fiji Museum. The dorm room was okay and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and looked after my valuables as there are no lockers in the rooms. They have a kitchen if you want to self cater. Suva is not a place you really want... More

Stayed one night for transit. They had had a very busy week, so when we arrived, apparently they had not been able to keep pace with laundering towels or linen. While we were out at dinner, they DID get everything installed int he rooms. DOWNSIDE was getting new towels that hadn't ever been washed, so they still had the residue... More

We stayed a night at the South Seas Private Hotel in Suva, paying for a private bathroom, their most expensive room at $64. Late at night we found we had no hot water. There was a school group staying at the hotel and we thought because of heavy use, the hot water might just have run out. However, we checked... More

We stayed here when in Suva for one night after checking out of the uncharacteristic Best western down the road. This was by far nicer, it had a lot more of a rustic theme, yes the rooms were far more basic, but the smiley staff made up for it as well as the rooms being half the price. The location... More
