A simple, no frills affair. Best feature is the restaurant food, and courteous staff. Décor in the main building is not spanking new, nor flashy, however is well maintained. A few hiccups with the lobby ATM however front desk staff were happy to do currency exchanges. Prices for souvenirs from the handily located vendors outside the entrance are higher than...

For some reason, I always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Even though rates are sometimes the same. I had the pleasure of staying one night here last week and it beat all my expectations. MUCH better than Holiday Inn Express, I received an upgrade to an Executive room in the tower and was very pleased. Will stay here again...

Great place to do business and easy to get to. The rooms are mostly all quite old but are all well looked after and clean. The staff are all helpful and pleasant and make the stay simple and enjoyable.

Stayed there on either side of walking Kokoda Track. Very good place to stay (by Moresby standards). Good services. Did a great job cleaning my mud caked boots (22 kina). Good amenities. Good clean rooms. Restaurant/ breakfast staff excellent; so friendly and helpful. Really made the stay such a pleasure.

Decent place for a business hotel. Can easily entertain in the cafe or the poolside bar. Food quality and quantity is decent. Price is higher than you would typically expect for this part of the world. Staff are courteous and speak good English. Will definitely be back.

I note that many people on Trip Advisor, complain about the cost of this hotel. This is my third visit here, and another later this year, but after checking with other travellers, some who have been coming here 20 years or more, I have decided this is the best in POM.

A lovely hotel in a difficult city. Port Moresby is dangerous! You are advised not to walk anywhere... It is not a scenic city. Anyway, the Holiday Inn Express is ok for transit - one or two nights. It's not so good for longer stays as the room are a little claustrophobic with no balcony. For this you need the...

One of the safest places in Port Moresby, with free airport shuttle and free wi-fi for IHG members (joining is free). I always put on weight when I visit because the evening buffet is delicious! Room is comfortable but no apparent access for people with a wheelchair from lower floors & reception.

Security wise one the best in Port Moresby. Clean too. Friendly stuff. I stayed 3 night in july 2016, nice and comfortable stay. Shop inside is way too overpriced. Nearby shopping mall 'Vision City' is the best option to buy necessary items if required.
