Stayed one night early June 2013, after late evening flight to Papeete and before flying to Bora Bora next morning, it was pretty convenient. To me it seemed like a nice, clean, fairly modern (about 3.5* I would give it) hotel, cool air-conditioned room (how pleasant in the heat of Tahiti) - you can set it to your liking. I suddenly woke up in the middle of the night shivering, as it was only 18C as we set it upon entering from outside heat. Yes, there is steep hill, but it's only few min walk up, total walk from airport I'd say is about 7 mins, steep hill maybe 2 mins (but unfit or elderly might have to take a rest before getting all the way up). Breakfast surprisingly ok, filling - fresh croissants, pastries, some jam, tea/coffee, fresh cut pineapple. Tahitian staff a bit friendlier than French (I'd assume from France) staff, they're all helpful, only difference maybe Tahitians add a warm smile, lol. I even left some of my luggage in the hotel storage for a fee of about $15-20, it's maybe $100 cheaper per person if you fly with luggage under 10 kg pp to Bora Bora - couldn't find this lower rate on internet, but bought Bora Bora air tickets the next morning on the spot as soon as Air Tahiti office opened, I think at 6 or 7am, went back to hotel, had nice breakfast, more sleep, then to B.B. around lunch time. Would recommend this hotel.
