it was a good stay and well worth the monney, long ride from airport to the city, no taxi at the airport so wise to arrange transport from airport to hotel and back. Hotel is down town and close to cruise port. change mooney at the airport in local curacy is wise
You don't have much choice if you want to stay in the centre of Noumea and be able to explore like I did. This hotel is passable--average rooms, on a rather derelict street near the cathedral. It is within a 5-10 minute walk of all the museums and shops of Centre-Ville and the port area. Get a room facing the cathedral, as the rooms on Rue de Sebastapol get a lot of noise from the street. I did appreciate that the hotel had a nice folder with listings of local attractions, and more importantly, restaurants. Central Noumea is lifeless at night, and finding the one or two open restaurants can be a challenge. Still, the rooms are basic.
This hotel is where I’ll stay next time I am in Nouméa. The staff were super friendly and help out with whatever you need, the bed was extremely comfortable, great WiFi, great air conditioning, great location. 15 minutes to walk to the ferry station, which was great because my ferry left at 6 in the morning. Close to Coconut Square everything essential within range. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. If you stay centrally in Nouméa (perhaps while in transit) this is the place to stay.
The location is only a 5 minute walk to the main square and near to plenty of restaurants. The communication via email prior to arrival was a little bit sporadic, but we worked everything out. The airport shuttle was there for us in the wee hours of the morning as requested when we arrived at the airport. Unfortunately, our room was quite smelly and the toilet was broken when we arrived at 1am. We let staff know, but werent offered to relocate to another room at that hour. So we used the toilet in the lobby. We left early the next morning and made a different booking for another nights stay in Noumea.
This hotel is located in the centre of Noumea, which makes it handy for the sights. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. The rooms are decent in size, with AC, but are not fancy. If you need a place to stay for a few nights, it is fine.
Hotel Le Paris has all the basics covered. It is clean, with good coffee-making facilities, (and I loved the smell of the soap :-) ) A funky supermarket, restaurants and cafes were all in the vicinity of the hotel, so, we didn't actually eat there to comment on the hotel's food itself. The bus stop to go to Anse Vata and surrounds was also close by. The waterfront and morning market is within walking distance, which is quite convenient. Although the city of Noumea isn't the prettiest of cities, it certainly has a cosmopolitan feel in places, with art galleries and historical sites to visit.
We stayed there two nights. First night we were in the room that facing main street, this room was perfect! Second night we stayed in a different room, that was facing cathedral. This room wasn't so good. It smelled like people used to smoke there. The sound from cathedral clocks walked me up while night. In general the hotel is good, staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is perfect if you're planning to take fairies or use public transport.
This hotel is located in central Noumea which makes it a convenient spot to get to different places. The Noumea market is within 5 mins walk away as well as the bus terminal. The reception staff are friendly and check-in was swift. The room is huge, clean and quiet but could do with a bit more lighting. Overall, I had a great stay and would recommend it to others.
Hotel le Paris is a nice hotel, and reasonably good value for money. The rooms are well sized and quiet, with large, comfortable beds. The reception staff were all very pleasant and helpful I had any queries or requests. The wifi at the hotel is some of the best I have experienced in Noumea, and definitely made the hotel stand out compared to others in the city. The location is fairly central, though there isn't much in the way of restaurants or entertainment in the immediate vicinity. However, it's only a five minute walk to the ferry quay, as well as several other restaurants, and around a fifteen minute walk to the morning markets. If you are planning on spending a lot of time around the hotel and don't want to walk too far for meals, I would stay in Anse Vata or Lemon Bay, but if you have a car or are intending to spend a lot of time out exploring the city, Hotel le Paris is a great home base.…
This hotel was reasonably priced, with clean comfortable rooms and conveniently located near the local fresh markets and Port Moselle where we were hiring a catamaran for a week. We could walk to the harbour and purchase all food we needed for our sailing trip. Highly recommend for a couple nights if staying in town.
