Set away from the dual carriageway that slices through Papeete, these are clean, modern rooms. The only downside the animal yard racket - but this is everywhere there. If there is a room available - take it.

We had to stay the night in Papeete. We stayed at Fare Suisse. The room and breakfast for two costs $130. Not a bad deal at all. They picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport. Perfectly find to stay the night at a reasonable price.

I've stayed with Beni at Fare Suisse 3 times in the last year on overnight stops in Papeete. The prices are right, and the rooms are modern, comfortable, clean, quiet and cool [air con]. It's close to all the downtown amenities and the complimentary airport transfers are a real plus. And he's the perfect host

This a great place to stay upon arrival in Tahiti. It is located not far from the airport, and within walking distance of the market and roulottes (food trucks). There is a grocery store very nearby. The accommodation isn't luxurious, but it's clean and very comfortable. It was great to have Beni pick us up at the airport late at... More

Beni was a fantastic host for us after a long journey. We had over 16 hours of travel time and there he was at the airport to pick us up and take us to our clean, comfortable room where I think we feel asleep before our heads hit the pillow. In the morning we had a fresh continental breakfast buffet... More

Beni and his wife are perfect hosts. They are very helpful and provided us rides from the airport and to the ferry port. They are also involved with the reconstruction of the ship Bounty and can provide really interesting information. The location of Fare Suisse is ideal, just up in the hill above town so you are out of busy... More

Beni picks you up and gets you to and from port/airport/guesthouse. It is super clean, but our room was a bit like a cell with one window sidelight by the door. No closet, no glass or paper cup in the bathroom, but a clean, air conditioned unit. Breakfast should be a wonderful 53 cent fresh baguette from the grocery a... More

We enjoyed our stay at Fare Suisse. We arrived relatively late at the airport and a person from the hotel was there to pick us up and drove us to the hotel. We stayed there 2 nights, the room was nice and the bathroom was clean. On our last day, we let our luggage for free for the morning and... More

Fare Suisse B&B is a little gem. In a residential part of town, 5 minutes from a supermarket & ATM and from L'Api'zzeria - an excellent Italian restaurant. Downtown is a 15 minute stroll. Modern bathrooms, simple but delicious breakfast, friendly staff. The complimentary transfer service to & from the airport or ferry dock which owner Beni offers runs -... More
