Papeete - Hôtel Prince Hinoï

Roulottes on the Papeete waterfront

Hôtel Prince Hinoï
(689) 42 32 77
They no longer have a Web site.

This hotel is wonderfully situated on Boulevard Pomare (the street that runs along the waterfront) and Avenue du Prince Hinoi. It’s a couple of blocks from the Moorea ferries in one direction and the roulottes in the other. Le Truck stop nearby.

I emailed them on a Friday but did not receive a response back until the following Wednesday. Being impatient I had booked elsewhere.

Since I don’t speak French I translate my emails using babelfish or and send them in both English and French. I’ve always received responses in English except for the Hotel Prince Hinoi.

Without asking I was offered a special rate of 10,000 xpf plus taxes for a single.

Their rate sheet was also attached. The prices quoted (last year) were:

12,800 xpf for a single
13,600 xpf for a double (2 beds or 1 queen size)
14, 500 xpf for a triple
Taxes were 11% plus a 150 xpf per person municipal occupancy tax.

They offer a continental breakfast for 1350 xpf and an American breakfast for 1500 xpf. (Head to the market area and you can get coffee for 250 and croissants, etc. for less than 200).

They also mentioned that they have day rooms (noon to 9 pm) for 8000 plus taxes.
