This place is basic at best the loud noise from road and local night club keeps you up until they go to bed. Forget getting a good night rest. Lacked hospitality. WiFi is not great in the rooms but the lobby does have a stronger signal for people that need to work while on holidays. The room needed a good clean and the floors needed a real mopping the bathroom floors were grotty and the smell of urine was overwhelming if you left the door closed. The location is great and in walking distance to everything and the airport transfer was wonderful

Adequate accommodation but nothing offered above basic expectations. Probably a bit over-priced for what is on offer.

Nice hotel in the city close to the ferry terminal

Hotel was very nice with reasonable price and beautiful view from the top floor rooms. I strongly recommend it for people who need to stay in Papeete or near by.

Location could have been better.

Seemed like an industrial area. Hotel stuck in middle of no where. Unattractive building and surroundings but nicer on inside. Bed uncomfortable and could feel springs. Howerever just passing through so met that need adequately.

Does the job

A clean and nicely decorated hotel. It's close to the centre of town and to the ferry terminal. I stayed here for one night before moving onto one of the islands and would recommend it.
