You wouldn't want to spend your Tahitian vacation here or any other place in downtown Papeete for that matter. Hotel Le Mandarin is fine for a short (one or maybe two night) stay if you need to stay in downtown Papeete or want to take the ferry to Moorea. The location is convenient, but it is noisy. It is just a short walk to the ferry docks, but you do have to cross a busy street. The market place is just a couple of blocks away and is worth going to if only to look around.
One reason we selected this hotel was that they responded right away by email when we inquired about a reservation. Some other hotels did not respond for several days and some did not respond at all. The man at the front desk was pleasant, helpful and spoke pretty good English. (We stayed here three years ago and no one spoke much English that time.) The cafe is pretty good for breakfast, but a bit expensive. Most important thing is our room was clean, close to the ferry and fairly reasonable by Tahiti pricing.
