One of the cheapest motels in Apia, the room is pretty basic with a standard bed, fan or aircon as you choose. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is close to a supermarket, mcdonalds and atm machines. However, cleanliness is not very satisfactory but what can you expect for around $49 tala a night. If you are ready to spend... More

We had a deluxe room for two nights at the beginning of our trip arriving at 2am. Found the room to be simple but very clean, accurately desrcibed on the website for budget accommodation. Double bed, fan, aircon, clean toilet, shower and with a little balcony, no grand views, but entertaining watching traffic coming and going and view of the... More

We got into Apia quite late and were a bit disappointed with the location of the motel. However, the staff was super friendly - we had air conditioning and a balcony....that did look onto a barbed wire fence. The room was basic and included a TV and bathroom for a mere 49 Tala. Definitely very outdated - leading one to... More

Tatiana have budget (backpacker), average and high quality accommodation in their mini-chain of motels/hotels. For backpackers the Fugalei motel is perfect: - wide choice of types of room and prices - 5 minute walk to a major supermarket - 10 minute walk to the heart of Apia - the staff at the taxi rank across the road are helpful and...

I stayed at this place as it was the cheapest place in Apia. Good cheap price is the main reason for staying at this accommodation. It was a reasonably good location , only a 5 to 10 minute walk to downtown Apia. The rooms were a bit smelly, no frills and I saw one cockroach. Beds were not particuarly comfortable.... More

This is a really good central location to Apia City Centre and just round the corner from the Bus Station. It is a Budget Hotel so as long as you keep this in mind it's a great place to base yourself while Apia. You wont want to spend much time in Apia anyway as there are so many nicer parts... More
