Tatiana motel is about 5 minute walk from the hospital, it was very convinent for medical student who are attached to the hospital. If you are a medical student i would really recommend this place.
Town is about 25min walk or a quik 3min cab ride which is around 4-5 talas
The accomodation is very affordable
The motel it self was amazing i had such a good experience with my accomodation.
The rooms are big and clean with air condition and double bed (if your traveling alone) mini-fridge, own bathroom and shower. i had the room up the stairs and had hot water through out the whole day. although the room the in front had cold water through out the day but get used it.
There is a complimentery continental breakfast. Bread, tea, coffee, milk milo are available all day. Safe and free water is avaiable through out the day. we are not allowed to wash up!
There is also a tv and dvd player in the common room and the dvd rental is a 4 min walk.
They have a quick laundry service for 10 tala, if you give your bag in the morning they will be washed and dryed by the afternoon.
The internet service which is available in tatianas is lava spot (wifi hot spot) and cost 40 talas for 4 hours, the more hours you buy the cheaper it gets. the speed aint bad
What i like most about tatianas is that you feel you are part of the family and they are very accepting and help. All the workers there are so nice and friendly specially su'e.
The owners brenda and papa are so helpful as is athene the manager
Athene is great manager she helps out organising trips to samoas attactions and to the other islands and places to stay near beaches especially the beach fales in lanumanu or even for nights out (you need to go fiesta on a friday at v-bar 5.30-7 pay 30 talas and its free drinks from then, its the best night out in samoa) and for places to eat.
Staying at tatianas is such a laugh with the other medical student and guest makes it a amazing atmosphere to stay in. I stayed with 20 other medical students from places around the world.
I would definately come back to this motel and would recommend it to any one looking for a cheap place to stay
Thanks alot athene, brenda and papa you have made my trip complete
