Reviewed June 30, 2012

Very central, next to a taxi ramp within walking distance to Farmer Joes (supermarket) and fresh fruit and veg. market ! Turned up very early at 6 am . and staff welcomed me! Stayed in room with aircon and ensuite, basic breakfast provided. Met lots of freindly backpackers. Very noisy from 6 am onwards so do bring earplugs for the traffic ! A torch to if walking at night ditches and holes on the footpath out side the hotel ! What do you expect for such a cheap price, I've had worse.Watch out you don't look at the other tatiana hotel, website can be confusing,. photos both the same ! Genuine Samoan family hotel ! Try ringing to check your dates I had no replies to numerous emails and found booking online extremely challenging! Beds Ok bathroom had limited hot water but this seems to be common in Samoa!

Room Tip: Airconditioned rooms up top are quieter!

I stayed at this place as it was the cheapest place in Apia. Good cheap price is the main reason for staying at this accommodation. It was a reasonably good location , only a 5 to 10 minute walk to downtown Apia. The rooms were a bit smelly, no frills and I saw one cockroach. Beds were not particuarly comfortable. The shared bathroom doesn't have a place to hang your clothes very easily. Staff were reasonably helpful. Breakfast included papaya , bread and jam and a hot drink - basic , but enough to keep you going. Overall, this is not a place for a honeymoon or romantic stay - more suited to people on a tight budget who don't mind something very basic and want to spend money on other things.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to have your own private bathroom / toilet.

This is a really good central location to Apia City Centre and just round the corner from the Bus Station.
It is a Budget Hotel so as long as you keep this in mind it's a great place to base yourself while Apia. You wont want to spend much time in Apia anyway as there are so many nicer parts of the Island offering only slightly more expensive options in Beach Fales.
Tatiana's is clean and the staff were really helpful and friendly especially as we arrived at 2.30 in the Morning. The room was spacious and had clean linen on the beds and rooms had power sockets.
Breakfast is included in the price as well it's not the most varied or fanastic choice but more then enough to get you started in the Morning.
There is a Taxi service that picks you up form the Airport and charges 25 Tala a good option if your a solo traveller. Tatiana's isn't the best place out of season to go if your travelling on your own as it's not that busy and you wont meet many people.
All in all for the price that you pay this place is amazing value and by far the cheapest offered in Apia or anywhere else I stayed in Samoa.
If you book Tatiana's through a Hostel website you will get a better price and they will honour that price for any extra days you stay as well.

I came here as an alternative to Hotel Elisa, which was full.
Stayed for two nights.Basically no surprise with the state of the bedrooms. Some are smelly (check the bedroom before handing out any money). The one where I stayed (nr. 24) had the door key lost, which meant while I was in the premises (toilet, restaurant), I would leave the door unlocked, and when I went out, I had to ask the ladies to open my bedroom with the master key. Nothing happened to my belongings, and as a general rule, I found Apia quite safe.
I didn't have any visitors at night, as opposed to all the cockroaches I found at Elisa; but I can't guarantee future guests will be as lucky.
Depending on which bedroom you stay (ask to stay as far from the street as possible), you'll need earplugs to be able to sleep.
The ladies at the reception were always nice and they offered me a discount because of the door thing.

Great location right in town. We wanted a place to spend one night in central Apia that was cheap and this was fine. Beds/sheets were clean and room had a table and was lockable (nice change after fales!) Bathroom was dirty and often had no loo paper, and kitchen looked a bit grubby. Breakfast was basic and plentiful and went until 11am or something which was great for flexibility. Ladies at front desk were also very helpful and had good English.

Room Tip: Choose room that doesn't back onto the lounge as the lounge is loud until late in the night.

Sia & Sia are very welcoming, have stayed here 3 times now, great hosts. Will be back on 20 September 2011. Towels should be changed every day but are not and have to ask for replacement.
