Great for business travellers

Pros: Clean, comfortable, safe, well run, great service, decent food, reasonably priced. Perfect for business travellers.
Cons: Great for business people, those with simple needs or on a short visit, less ideal for people who want recreational things to do at their hotel.
Location: Convenient to the airport and government offices
I stayed 1 night at the Holiday Inn Express while visiting POM on business. The staff were very helpful, the whole place was well presented and felt safe - which was important to me as a female travelling alone. My room was clean and very comfortable. It's all I needed as a business traveller and better value than some other major hotels in town. I walked just across the driveway (within the compound) to the main Holiday Inn's 'Kopi Haus' restaurant for dinner - the food that my dining companion and I selected off the menu was simple but good, and I spotted a buffet that I'd try if I visit again (one of my workmates recommended it). I was catching the first flight out in the morning, and was impressed that the hotel's shuttle bus to the airport ran every half hour from 4am. Given they weren't serving breakfast yet at that time of the morning, they provided me with a 'grab and go' box of breakfast. All in all, a great experience and highly recommended.

NICE AND NEW

Pros: Rooms are New and bright
Cons: Plumbing and Breakfast variety could change up now and again (same thing every day).
Location: Location was very central to the clients I was seeing I Boroko. If you are lucky enough to get top floor the view are actually really lovely.
The rooms are fresh and new and are kept pretty good. Bed is very comfortable. Plumbing was a little bit of a problem with a backed up toilet and no water for a little while (was early in the morning so may have been turned off for maintenance) water was back on by 7am. Overall it is a nice place to stay. Food is a bit average in the Express and some more variety for breakfast would be welcomed. I have stayed there several times now and I will stay again.

Great location. Very secure. Staff - exceptional!!

Pros: Location, staff, food and security.
Cons: No
Location: Visit to Bomana cemetery and the actual Port. Very close the the airport.
Given the issues affecting Port Moresby the hotel was exceptional. Very safe, clean and secure. The staff were exceptional and very obliging. Great street art available over the road (and under the watchful eye of hotel security).

The hotel was close to the Athletics and Stadium.

Cons: TV set up and instructions.
Clean modern with everything I needed in the room , no frill and easy to work, apart from the TV which needs to be simplified
