I was uncertain before the stay based on prior reviews but it seems the property was recently renovated and it was great; would stay again if I needed to be in Papeete, great location.

Hotel/Hostel..run far far away!!
The description and pictures of the hotel are grossly overrated. The "Motel" is off in a residential area. Not as close to the marketplace we were hoping to be. There are no ammenities, no bar, no television, and byfar the worse, no working airconditioner. All of which were in the description when we booked. We paid for an early checkin, and that gave us a total of $190 us dollars. For $50 us dollars more, we could've been at a luxury hotel. Spend the money to go elsewhere. This hotel is actually a motel at best. It's very old, dark hallways, sparsely decorsted w/broken mismatch furnishings. Is lighted by lamps back in the 1900 era's and may also be a fire hazzard as they are haphazardly stretched to reach a single power outlet. Unfortunately we were unable to get our monies back, because we didnt cancel the reservation prior to our stay. But who would've known to do that after viewing the ratings, customers comments, and description, and photos! This motel should come w/a rating of "run"...not worth the stress of staying there. Beware!!

One night stay
The room was very nice with a modern touch. The staff member check us in in the middle of the night was very friendly and serve us with a smile, which was great to see after a long flight. The hotel was only 7 minutes walk to the ferry that took us to Moorea island.
