We were arriving late at night and had a cruise ship boarding the next day. this was the perfect venue. We were a very short walk away to the ship from the hotel and just needed a bed to sleep in with a late check out. The hotel was very helpful, giving us towels and shower facilities so that we...

We stayed in a Junior Suite for one night before heading to the other islands. The hotel was nice. Lobby was clean and had good free wifi. We arrived in the evening and other guests have complained about it being dark and they are correct. We had to use our flashlight app to see the signs on how to get... More

I stayed in a Junior Suite (street side) for two nights, theres no doubt the room was lovely, quite luxurious. I read other reviews about the noise, I was dreading this but actually I found it ok. Not that bad! A few loud motorcycles and yes, quite a few ambulance sirens but it didnt seem that loud or annoying, perhaps... More

We spent one night and one - early - morning at Hotel Tahiti Nui, and that's about all you need to see Pape'ete. Great location, affordable price, spacious rooms with tasteful decor, delicious breakfast and a nice pool open 24/7. The hotel has a kinda weird dark ambience - very little light on the floors - but that's a detail.... More

One of the few options for staying within walking distance of the centrum. But the rooms, though spacious and attractive, were poorly designed - particularly the bathrooms, which are probably the worst-designed we have ever experienced. Horrible lighting, shower sprays onto the floor because no curtain or barrier, and more. The breakfast was extremely expensive and of mediocre quality for... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our trip to Tahiti/Moorea in May. Although we could have stayed at a resort we quite like feeling like we are part of a city when we are staying in one rather than feeling more isolated out of town. The hotel was very close to the rest of Papeete including... More

We chose the Hotel Tahiti Nui based on location. We had arrived on an evening flight too late to board a ferry to Moorea. The hotel arranged for transportation from the airport to the hotel for about $16.00/person; they were waiting and billed the cost directly to the hotel. The property is contemporary and recently refurbished but shows a lack... More

I think that this hotel is a good choice for transiting out of Tahiti. The pros: convenient location for walking around town to shopping/restaurants, comfortable room/bed (we had a superior room facing west which offered a nice sunset view and the room was quiet), nice pool, great if you have a late night flight from Papeete as the hotel stores...
