Very nice basic hotel and restaurant in very central location, stayed a week, 5 min walk to dock where divers leave, 5 min walk to supermarket, 5 min walk to TNC offices, friendly staff, clean rooms with refrigarator and aircon/fan (both worked well but were loud). WIFI a bit slow and sometimes to weak to skype but worked well for... More

For this price in Micronesia it's not going to be a fancy hotel - but Yvonne's covered everything you need; a decent size room, good air-conditioning, hot water and good wifi. It was clean, the staff are friendly and it was quiet at night. The wifi might not be in all rooms - mine was directly above the lobby. The... More

I give the hotel 5 stars based on Pohnpei standards. The rooms were spotless and large, the location is very central, and the staff was friendly, if a bit shy. We were able to get wi fi in our room, which was directly above the lobby, the AC worked very well, and there were nice hot showers. Kia's, the restaurant... More

Spotlessly clean rooms, with aircon, good shower and even a little kitchenette. Well located to get around to most offices in central Pohnpei by foot if you need to. Free wifi in the lobby and help yourself to free bananas straight from the bunch hanging outside the restaurant!

I spent one week in this hotel because I was taking part in an orientation to Pohnpei. At the end of the week when I was about to leave, I told the staff that I would come back, at least, for dinner. I meant that. I describe here the pros and cons about the place. Pros: My room was spacious... More

This hotel is mostly patronized by business travelers but not many tourists. One can see why. The rooms are spotlessly clean, but that's about all the place has going for it. If you're looking for peace and quiet, forget it. Telecom, next door, runs its huge generator about half the time, which is like a dull roar. The hotel staff... More

We stayed at Yvonne's hotel for 3 nights. Like is written in other reviews the room was clean and nice. However when visiting this hotel as a tourist note that nobody is available to arrange your tours! The toilet was constantly blocked... The restaurant Kia is ok, however, the manager does not cater in time, no beer, no toast etc.... More

I was very disappointed with Yvonne's. It was recommended to me and I know it is popular with people traveling to Pohnpei for work. I will say that the room was very clean and this is important to me. It was also comfortable enough. Also, the restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful. The problem is that the hotel staff...

I stayed at Yvonne's for two months from the January to March. I was given a lovely, clean apartment (had everything I needed to prepare all my own meals) with good amenities and excellent air-con (very important in Pohnpei). The staff were always willing to help with my requests and overall they made my Pohnpei work experience highly enjoyable. I... More
