Finding reasonably priced, safe, clean and comfortable accommodation in Honiara is difficult. You don't get a lot of bang for your buck in Honiara unfortunately. I've stayed in the cheap rooms at the Pacific Casino Hotel before, but this time I decided to try the cheap rooms at Honiara Hotel. I already knew the hotel from the perspective of visiting it to use the swimming pool when I was living in Honiara, but this trip was the first where I stayed there. I would rate the cheapest rooms as on a par as same priced ones at Pacific Casino. Not great..... windows you can't see out of, bathroom old, tiles a little mouldy, shower had some problems. 2 single beds in the room that were as hard as a plank of wood. On the plus side, the air-con worked really well, the room was generally very clean, the staff are lovely, the pool is great.
I was working in Chinatown, so it was in the perfect location for me. Just a couple of minutes from where I needed to go each day. Also, despite others saying you need to get a taxi to get to the centre of town, you can actually get a bus or walk. I walked it and I'm not the fittest person. It's really not far.
They have 3 restaurants, but I think they were a little pricey (but again, that's Honiara for you). I ended up sticking with the most reasonably priced of the 3 and ate Chinese most nights. It was really nice food.
I would stay there again, but wish the price better reflected the room standard. Unfortunately there aren't a lot of good alternatives there in the price range.
