“Good city hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I was booked a deluxe room but upon check in; the reception gave us the one bed room suite. The room was very large and had balcony to enjoy open air at night time. The bed was excellent and comfortable, I had good rest. I had problem with the shower, due to there is no separate shower and bathtub has no curtain. The water splash all over the floor. Beside the bath room; others were very good. I did not hear any music from the lounge down stair. The hotel has gym and in house spa. The gas station is next door, where I can stock all my beverage and light snack with very cheap rates, it is not easy to find anything cheap in Tahiti.

The only bad surprise was the quality of breakfast in particular when compared to the quality of dinner served in the same restaurant as well as compared to other hotels in Tahiti and French Polynesia.

Room Tip: I received free upgrade to junior suite that is said not to face the street and more quite.

Great place to stay pre or post cruise if you are looking for value. Close to piers. Area of town is not the best but seemed safe during the day. Restaurant also good value for dinner but not for breakfast.

We spent 2 nights pre & post cruise in February. It is really well situated as is close to the crusie ships embarkation point as well as the city and restaurants.
For French Polynesia the charge is very reasonable and the price includes the internet ( with a French keyboard) in a Business centre next to Reception.
We did not eat at the restaurant as we purchased breakfast and lunch from the Mini Mart next to the Hotel.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
The hallways are very dark and humid.
The Hotel does not provide black tea or milk. The tea provided is every other variety but black!
The airconditioning is very, very effective and the rooms become quite chilly.
if you are walking down to the wharf to catch your cruise,it is an easy walk . However ,there are a number of places where you will need to lift your case up and down the steps to continue on the pavement.
The food vans at the water from 6pm are good value and very popular with locals as well.
Overall we were very happy with the Hotel Tahiti Nui and would stay there again.

Stayed here for one night pre-cruise. Very convenient to cruise check in as this was at the city hall only a short stroll (with luggage) away. 5 - 10 minute walk to the cruise terminal itself. Several decent local restaurants. Little bit of a sketchy area surrounding the hotel but we had no problems.

The hotel lobby is huge and largely empty. Check in was fast and efficient. The room was 2 level with a sitting room/ kitchen on the entry level and with the bed/ bath on the level above. Small balcony looking onto a busy street and a run down apartment opposite. Quiet enough with doors closed. AC worked well. Kitchen was strange as there were some dishes etc but no towels or soap. Comfortable bed. Clean with all appliances working. Lighting in the hall way was provided by small blue lights that provided little actual illumination.

Kindly let us use the pool and shower after checkout as well as the Wifi (which worked in the lobby only). Even provided towels! Nice.

I am sure this hotel was very nice at some point but it defiantly hasn't been maintained. We had a 2 bedroom suite and my parents had a regular room a few floors down. Our suite was okay but lots of things didn't work. The shower in one room was broken and the AC in one room didn't work and literally had no control pad. It was clean-ish as there were dead bugs around the window etc and they were big bugs. We were traveling with our 2 children so these things matter when you have a toddler with you. My parents had similar issues in their room as their phone didn't even work for a wake up call. The business center printer didn't work either so that was pretty useless for printing boarding passes. I am glad we only stayed the one night for an early flight the next day.

We arrived by ship and checked into the Hotel Tahiti Nui which is not far from the port area. As we were only staying one extra day, we decided against staying at an ocean-side resort but rather wanted to be near the downtown area. The hotel was perfectly located. It is new, modern and had all the amenities. We had been advised to get a mountain-side room rather than be on the street side where there might be traffic noises. The hotel is new, modern and has all the amenities desired. Free internet access is in all of the rooms but can only be via ethernet cord however, free wi-fi is in the lobby. The resturant looked OK but we didn't eat there. The full downtown area with shopping, resturants and the "roulettes" (food trucks) is only a very short walk away. Additionally, we were able to get a taxi to the airport for a reasonble fee (about U$20) which is only about 10 minutes away.

Room Tip: get a mountain-side room rather than be on the street side where there might be traffic noises
