“Holiday Inn POM, not the best, but at least its decent.”
Reviewed 12 March 2010

Stayed at the Holiday Inn in Port Moresby last January for a total of 5 days for a business trip. The rooms were pretty big and modern considering this was PNG. I suggest you ask for the rooms overlooking the pool / garden area since there was an old wing which overlooks the city and the rooms were old and tired. The ones overlooking the garden/bar/pool area are the newer ones.

Since there isnt much to do in POM we rested and slept a lot after our meeting. The double beds were actually quite comfortable, at par with most hotels elsewhere. There is a ref and enough space for 2 colleagues with all their suits and stuff. The balcony was a nice touch to get some air also.

The restaurant at the ground floor served decent food, in fact, it was actually pretty good.

On the downside internet access costs an arm and a leg! 100 Kina for about 250MB data (yes! they are still on the data count charging) download. So that means no facebook or downloading photos!

There are not too many convenient choices in POM. The Holiday Inn is close to Government Offices and that's about it. Food is pretty poor, service is poor. The rooms are pretty standard in the tower wing - clean, tidy and all working. A slight musty smell - but that's the Pacific.

Price was about 300AUD a night - don;t get the breakfast option - a very poor continental for about 20 extra. Compared to other options I'd stay elsewhere. The nearby La Mana has an excellent restaurant - not sure about the rooms - and it is slightly cheaper.

For the slightly lower convenience, I will go back and stay at the Crowne Plaza - slightly more $$, better rooms, upgraded and great dining and views.

When traveling in Port Moresby, there are very few safe hotels to stay. The Holiday Inn is one of those hotels. Travel in PNG is very expensive, so value for money is hard to rate. The average cost of a regular room here is about US$350 per night with no breakfast included. The location is close to government offices, which is why I stayed there. The hotel has a good security system in place though it has been held at gunpoint in the past year. It is a fenced in compound that includes the hotel, a restaurant, a club, fitness facility, pool, tennis court, basketball court, and a 'jogging path'. For those facilities alone it is worth the price. Mind you, this is a hotel that has not been upgraded more than once since it was built (which was probably around independence, so in the 70s.... or else it feels that way), so facilities are quite old but functional. The room is basic and relatively clean. Internet is spotty and very expensive (>US$30/day). A kettle and coffee/teas are provided which is great and also a fridge. Highly recommend bringing your own food with you or to get a safe ride to the food market to load up on food because eating options at the hotel get old quickly. During a 10 day stay I saw dinner, lunch and breakfast foods get recycled over and over again. Not appetizing. That all said, it's probably one of the better options in POM.

Poor maintenance, ineffective staff. Another hotel by the beach in the downtown is both cheaper and better.
