Very basic but clean and everything that one could want in a budget accommodation in Papeete. The owner could not be nicer or more accommodating even picking us up at the airport after midnight. There was a firefighters strike and our flight was subsequently delayed by nearly three hours. But there was Beni waiting for us with a big smile...

I had a reservation at another hotel and with a week to go until I arrived I heard the other hotel had been closed for a month and a half. I emailed Fare Suisse in hopes that I could stay there. The answer was they had room. My plane arrived at midnight and the owner met me at the airport....

This is in a very good location, in a residential road but within easy walking distance of restaurants and town. Central Papeete is worth a look, and the flower market is dazzling. Fare Suisse looks recently built and is very clean and modern. rooms are tastefully furnished and the shower/toilet room is clean and a reasonable size. The building does...

Fare Suisse is spotlessly clean, comfortable and for a very reasonable cost! Would stay here again any time and would also tell our friends to do the same. The staff are wonderful and the owner Beni extremely helpful. He will also pick you up and drop you off for no charge at either the airport or the marina/ferry. The breakfast...

I stayed there one night enroute to Fakarava. My room was broken into and passport and wallet stolen. But what was bothersome was that the european proprietors couldnt care less. And by the reaction of the local staff it has been happening here time and time again and obviously there is no effort to reduce it. The proprietor disappeared on...

We used Fare Suisse as a day room after we disembarked at 0900 from our ship and before our flight at 2230. Price included pick up at harbor and transport to airport in time for our plane.

The room looked new and the bed was comfortable. Airport pickup and the cost of room makes it a very good deal. It would have been nice to have a coffee maker and maybe bottled water. There is a store at the bottom of the hill and you can walk to restaurants.

We stayed 2 nites at Fare Suisse, really appreciate the airport pickup, very clean room, nice dining, lounge area and the friendly staff. Beni and his wife are running a very good operation. Can thoroughly recommend for short stopover. Easy walk into centre of town and supermarket just down the road.
