We stayed at Fare Suisse a total of six nights in four separate stays in July 2014. It's a great place to base yourself in Papeete! The neighborhood is quiet, yet you are only minutes away from the waterfront and the downtown attractions. A supermarket is a couple of blocks away, which is useful if you are going to use... More

We stayed in Fare Suisse for 2 nights on either side of a trip to Moorea. Beni was a fantastic host, he was very accommodating and helpful. He picked us up from the airport, dropped us at the ferry terminal and then again on our way home, even though we had some undesirable flight times! The rooms were impeccably clean,... More

We heartily agree with the positive reviews about Fare Suisse. Unless you require a swimming pool and TV this is a good value guesthouse near central Papeete. The guest rooms and bathrooms exceeded my expectations. We didn't have time for breakfast due to our early flight departure. As taxi fares to and from the airport are rather expensive, the shuttle...

En route to another Polynesian island we stayed at Fare Suisse for one night in September 2013. Everything was fine – a clean bedroom and bathroom, nice breakfast on the terrace which even when it’s raining gives enough shelter and of course a friendly Beni who fetched us from the airport in his car and provided us with an umbrella...

We stayed at le Fare Suisse on and off for 10 days while we were visiting Tahiti and the surrounding islands. The pension is clean, comfy, safe and quiet, 2 minutes from a big supermarket and minutes walk to the cultural center where the Heiva danse show take place, and a few more minutes walk to Papeete’s market and city...

All the reviews are right. Thus small pension is a great value, great location, clean and comfortable and very nice breakfast. Beni is a great host and shuttled us back and forth from port telling us all about French Polynesia. Only sorry we didn't book on the way out too....

We stayed in Tahiti at the beginning of your dive trip in French Polynesia in April 2013 and Fare Suisse was recommended to us via friends. We had a very warm welcome at the airport and Beni gave us lots of tips, information and things to do about Papeete. The Fare Suisse is beautifully located on a hill and all... More

My family and I stayed at the Fare Suisse for a total of 3 nights. Beni and his team were extremely friendly and made our stay very confortable. The free airport pick up service was very helpful and Beni was always right on time for us and that very early in the morning! The guest house is well situated in... More

We recently stayed a total of 5 nights before and after our voyage to the Marquesas Islands on the Aranui 3. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The lobby and breakfast areas were attractive. The staff was extremely helpful, including free shuttle to the airport and dock at all hours of the day (and night). The location is ideal. It's... More

We stayed four nights in the first half of June and couldn't have been happier. The patron Beni is excellent and the location is very convenient. We self-catered- there is a supermarket close by ansdeverything Papeete has to offer is an easy walk away.It would be hard to find better value
