Maybe there are two Hotel Elisa: the real hotel and what they call the "budget area".
I arrived on a late night flight and wasn't sure there would be someone at the reception at 1am. Surprise, surprise, I was checked in and had no trouble finding a budget room.
I was quite impressed on the first day, and wanted to stay here, as the location was excellent (much better than Tatiana at Fugalei, where I went the next day), but they seemed to be quite popular. Full for the other 2 days of my stay in Apia.
I then came to Apia one last day, before leaving Samoa, and managed to find a budget room for me here again.
Internet was OK, it's with the local wifi provider. Expensive, but the only other option is one of the 3G providers, that charge an exorbitance. If you want to use your laptop, you have to take it, or else go to the much chaper cyber cafes in town.
The bathroom and bedroom which at first seemed ok, turned out to be totally infested with cockroaches. I had some real fun hunting all sizes of them.
The budget room doesn't include breakfast, as opposed to Tatiana Motel. And the noise is the same, ie. dogs barking at 5 am. Take your earplugs.
