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.

Our flight arrived in the middle of the night and the Samoan tourism authority at the airport recommended that we stay at Tatiana's, which we regrettably did. We took a budget room. The staff were very nice, but the motel REALLY needs to be updated. There were blood stains on the sheets, bugs everywhere, no windows in our room, I...

After a brief stay at Treasure Garden Hotel, I found Tatiana's to be a welcome change. Great location and friendly staff. I did feel 120 tala was a tad expensive for a pretty basic room (we get the same type rooms back home for less than an equivalent of 50 tala), but found Samoa to be very expensive overall. Rooms...

This is the worst of the worst-50 TALA for a single budget room but don't stay here unless there are no other rooms in APIA. VALENTINES next door and ELISA not far away are so much better.

We spent 6 nights at this place in July and would like to say a big fa'afetai to Athene and her staff. Your friendliness and service was great. We couldn't have asked for better. We were very pleased with our room, and the tropical breakfast included, was more that adequate.

'Cheap' means basic rooms, no external window, not very clean facilities or rooms, but its friendly & excellent value. Small flowery courtyard set back from the main road. Lounging/dining area with TV. Good position, handy for bus/taxi station, main market, 7-day food/takeaway supermarket. & central shopping area.

The budget room is basically simple which includes 2 single...
