This was our second stay in Hotel Le Mandarin. After extensive searching for an alternative reasonably priced and centrally located hotel for two relatively brief in-transit stays we decided that Hotel Le Mandarin still provided a no-frills, mid-range, honest option.
The hotel is in central Papeete, within walking distance of the ferry docks [we were going to and coming from Moorea], opposite the Town Hall, near the fascinating and busy local market and close to shopping. The nightly gathering of food carts on the waterfront is a 10 minute walk away and the airport is about 15 minutes by taxi.
The basic rooms are clean, adequately furnished and with a good bathroom. There is TV, A/C, and a telephone. Best views are from the rooms facing away from the harbour.
Multilingual staff members were welcoming and cheerful and managed requests such as accessing a taxi for a 4am trip to the airport with effortless efficiency. Should we need accommodation again in Papeete this hotel is a likely base.
