The staff was so very friendly. However the hotel is very basic. Clean (ish) Rooms were modern and nice (ish) The drain didn't work. The balcony door didn't lock. Security guard escorted us up to the room which was nice as it was 10:30pm however this made us wonder why. Should we be worried?? The area ~ very sketchy. I... More

Some quick fact about Papeete, Tahiti. 1. Many flights arrive at 5 am in the morning. Your hotel may charge you an early arrival fee like ours did (about a 40% premium). Even though it was indicated upfront that a clean room was available. Initially we were given the early check-in on a complimentary basis by the check in front... More

The hotel is quite basic but that was expected. It is very convenient to the ferry terminal (5 minutes walk). I arrived on an early-morning flight and the hotel offered me a room immediately. I am very grateful. The room was quite comfortable, had good air conditioning and I slept very well. The bathroom had not been cleaned recently, however:... More

The hotel is close to the Aremiti ferry dock and the city. We stayed here when we arrived from Moorea and were waiting for our flight to Chile. The rooms are OK and clean. The staff was helping us with the taxi reservation to the airport. And it was probably one of the most budget friendly option if one needs... More

The hotel has been renovated, in style of huge urns of artificial flowers and large paintings of vahine etc. Staff helpful. In a quiet if shabby area, near to ferries and roulottes ( best place to eat.) Room- clean, good size, but unable to read in bed (bed slid away and lamp shed no useful light), fridge had no shelves... More

Stayed here when we got off our cruise. Spent the day and flew out that night. We needed a place to shower, rest and store our luggage while we explored shopping in Papeete and finished our last full day in French Polynesia. This was a great location, pretty budget friendly and a very helpful and friendly staff!

Limited options in central Papeete. Nothing really wrong about this one. Located a block past end of commercial area, across street from bank, retail children's store, club for ex-militars -- this is hardly an industrial area. Understandable that people could misapprehend as in this town, buildings frequently sheathed in sheet metal. Rooms are very spacious, comfortably furnished, new and well-constructed.... More

clean hotel and pleasant staff, but we had no hot water in shower. We stayed here 3 days, on the third day we were allowed to shower in adjacent room. In light of this inconvenience I asked for an adjustment on my bill. They promised to refund $70 can. but this never happened. After several emails and a phone call,... More
