This place wasn't too bad, I won't go there next time tho. AC was fantastic. Bathroom was kinda weird. Door wouldn't close and shower valve was leaking. Hotel was close to town and this was my first stay in Tahiti. So I cannot really a good review unless I try out the other places Hotels.

The Sarah Nui is a good value considering what you get; this recently refurbished (office?) building is now a straightforward hotel located walking distance from downtown Papeete and the ferry terminal / promenade. For an overnight stay before your next morning's ferry ride to Moorea it's a convenient place to crash. The rooms are spacious and very clean, with comfortable... More

First of all we were only here for a sleepover, waiting for our early morning flight home to CA the next morning. We were disappointed to find they have no in house restaurant, nor is there any restaurant in the neighborhood, which is spotted with industrial buildings. However, we found food trucks within walking distance and had some good chow... More

Hotel was old & tired. Location not the best. Hot water didn't last a full shower; could not make phone calls from your room. Staff was adequate at best. On the positive side, wifi was free, location was close to the ferry terminal & they had a shuttle pickup from the airport.

When we arrived, it took about an hour to check in, as there was a group of 5 people ahead of us. An hour later... We checked in, which took all of 5 minutes. The frustrating thing is there were two on the desk, and one of them may as well have been a statue. It was 11pm at night... More

A good basic place to stay with airport transfers, very welcome when you arrive in the early hours. Convenient location near to the centre and it's shops, bars and restaurants. Walking sitance to the ferry terminal and helpful friendly staff.

I didn't expect much of this hotel because most reviews are ok. So we spent only one night here and I wish I hadn't changed to go somewhere else. The location might not be the most attractive but it's very convenient to walk into the the city (15 min) and to the ferry terminal (7 min). The hotel is pretty... More

This hotel is in a convenient but unattractive location. It is a short walk from the cruise/ferry terminal area and from downtown. They provide free shuttle service from (but not back to) the airport if you call and provide your flight information 72 hours in advance. This will save you around $30 cab fare. They will give you access to... More

We stayed in this hotel as we had an early morning flight out of Papeete. Fairly good rooms, friendly staff, good sleep quality...but that's all. Don't expect too much. Wifi is provided free of charge which works very well. It also has a good parking if you have a rent a car. City center is walking distance!

pros: reasonably priced (for French Polynesia) hotel post cruise for a one night stay. Check in started at noon, and the one receptionist was tired and overwhelmed from the long line of cruise ship passengers. The lobby was not air conditioned. Wi fi included in our package, and was adequate. Room was clean, and adequately furnished in an effort to... More
