Staff was extremely friendly. Rooms are sparsely furnished but clean. The best reason to stay at the Tiare Tahiti Hotel is the location. Walking distance to the cruise ship Pier and open air Market. Several nice (but expensive) Restaurant in the vicinity. Papeete's 19th century Catholic Cathedral is nearby and worth a visit.

A nice clean hotel, simple but near every thing. Close to the cruise ships we walked across the road to terminal. Near to food trucks that set up at 6pm each evening by the tourist information centre.

We stayed one night at the Tiare in March of 2014 with our 22 month old. This was our last night in the country and it was a nice change of pace. Most people default to the Intercontinental but after a long stay at resorts on other islands we were ready to see what Papeete was all about. It was... More

Our flight arrived at 10:30 pm, so we needed a place just to sleep before taking the ferry to Moorea the next morning. The hallways were old and the mattresses were not new, but everything was clean and satisfactory. The balcony overlooked the harbor and we enjoyed watching the activity in the morning. The breakfast was superb and reasonably priced.... More

While a typical 3 star European hotel, it is closest to the ferry and ship terminals and you can easily pull your luggage to and from the hotel and the ships. There are better resort options for longer stays on Tahiti or Moorea, or even just for the day before a late flight. But if you need to spend a... More

The Tiare Tahiti Hotel has an ideal location facing the harbour. It has two ATM's outside and it is next door to the post office. It is 5 minutes walk to board the cruise ship and to Les Fourettes (which is a great place for dinner) and ten minutes walk to the ferry to Mooea and to the pearl museum.... More

We stayed in the hotel for one night on our honeymoon. We were arriving on a flight late from the US and had a ferry at noon the next day (ferry terminal is walking distance from the hotel). The price was the best deal in Papeete on booking.com so we went for it. The location is good - right in... More

A very nice hotel in downtown Papeete, on the water. We had a 4th floor room with a great view of the port. They supply earplugs for the noise sensitive, but the road noise wasn't all that bad. This is a great inexpensive alternative to the fancy schmancy resorts.

We stayed here for two nights prior to our cruise and felt it was comfortable and convenient. When we arrived the staff was friendly and helpful and we were given a balcony corner room and had a terrific view of the harbor. The room was spacious, clean and simple. The beds and pillows were firm and comfortable (I prefer this)... More

I hadn't made a reservation for a hotel for my return from a two week trip to the Marquesas but before I left Papeete I checked out both Tiare Tahiti and Fare Suisse. I wanted to be right on the port versus a fair walk away (both Fare Suisse and Tahiti Nui are not right on the main street) and... More
