Worst hotel ever. Hookers in the lobby when we got there at 10:00pm. The hallway was dark and creepy. The room was not nice. Very hot and stuffy. No-see-ums bit us all night. We were actually scared for our safety and put a chair against the door. Only slept 2 hours. Horrible experience. Never been so uncomfortable in many years of travel.

Close to Ships departure terminal

Pros: Bathroom had nice shower
for 1 day waiting for cruise ship or departure to airport okay, would not like a longer stay. 1 bath towel for each. Old - not too modern, Surprised by all the additional taxes charged when checking out.

Dear Marlene, thank you for staying with us during your layover in Papeete. We're glad to read that you appreciated the bathroom and that you were satisfied of your stay. Regarding the additional taxes you are referring to, it is the local hotel-occupancy tax which is charged per person and per night in hotels worldwide. The tax rate is set by the government and vary depending on hotel's location. We do charge 150 XPF (equal to $1.5 USD) per person and per night as required by law. Hotel-occupancy taxes have long been around, We're sorry you were not informed of this earlier.

Reasonable, clean, budget priced hotel (for Tahiti), close to the ferry terminal and within walking distance of downtown. Wi-Fi speed is good. Room has small fridge for your drinks. I would stay here again while in transit to the airport or ferry. There is a restaurant downstairs (unknown), 2 food trucks in the lot next door and the ferry terminal serves an excellent breakfast.

Comfortable boutique hotel and well located

Pros: The beds were very comfortable, clean bathrooms and linens. Rooms are air conditioned and have a small refrigerator and a TV with cable channels.
Cons: Our stay would have been more comfortable if there had been a swimming pool or a shuttle to a swimming area. The weather is always hot there.
Location: The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the ferry dock, evening food trucks and the central open air market and shopping. No beach access within the city.
Our stay occurred during a world crisis and we appreciated having the TV with CNN so we could stay abreast of events. The staff was accommodating to our requests. We enjoyed the fresh local fruit and omelet breakfasts each morning. They offered fresh locally baked croissants and baguettes, cheeses, jams and beverages. The location was walkable to most places in Papeete. The mattresses were very comfortable and the linens were crisp and clean. The bathroom had a rain head shower and nice toiletries.
