The staff were very friendly and helped me practice my rusty French. Clearly they do speak English too. Hotel Tahiti Nui is close to the centre of town and handy to the ferries. Central Papeete is slightly sleazy along the waterfront at night but there is a lovely park close by. The pavements could do with repair which would make handling wheelie suitcases easier. That is not a hotel problem though.
Hotel Tahiti Nui is a well appointed haven compared to the surroundings outside.
Because of traffic noise it would be recommended to take a rear facing room. We had one night on our return in a street facing one and even with ear plugs there was a lot of traffic noise on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. See more below.
I think Tahiti Nui is quite adequate for a stop over if you want/have to be in Central Papeete.
