I travel through on business and have stayed at Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza and Gateway Hotels in Port Moresby, but you can't beat Airways by the airport that sits on a hill. I was given a complimentary room upgrade without asking, offered free Maritini happy hour access pass and the service was fantastic. The staff went out of there way...

Hotel is virtually adjacent to airport, free shuttle service. Enormous rooms, great bed, excellent swimming and dining facilities. Friendly staff who can steer the adventurous solo traveller in the right direction. Not the cheapest as I understand it but for convenience and comfort, definitely recommended, particularly if just passing through Port Moresby to other destinations.

Hello Ngaire.W Thank you for your comments. I am pleased to know that you had a comfortable stay with us.

Good for an overnight stay, with large bedrooms and walk-in shower. Spotlessly clean. Staff all very helpful and efficient. Restaurant bustling, but offers good selection of food both at dinner and breakfast, all self-service.

This hotel is excellent, it just has NO connection with Papua NG, limited assortment in its stores, WiFi is not very efficient. Restaurant quality is very good. But overall it is way too expensive for the area, but if money is no object ......???

We brought 15 people there for Thanksgiving, foolishly lured by the web ad of luscious seafood and turkey. We'd been before to their buffet and came away disappointed but thought we'd give them another go - not again. The turkey was cut up into pieces and put into a stew. The seafood was a few sushi rolls. We complained and...

Hello Ronan. M Thank you for providing feedback on your recent dining experience at the Airways Hotel restaurant. I sincerely regret the incident, it is never our intentions to mislead guests who patronize the restaurant, rather it is a miscommunication and an oversight by our culinary team. I have taken this matter into serious consideration and necessary steps to ensure...

I had booked this blindly because I'd never been to PNG before. I was in town for business and had quite a bit of running around I had to do and visited with some community leaders as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Airways Hotel is nestled into the mountainside in its own botanical gardens with stunning views from crystal clear waters of Bootless Bay to the majestic mountains of the Owen Stanley Ranges. While its surroundings are remarkable, the hotel's international reputation has been built on equally unique interiors, not to mention first-class service and a passionate attention to detail. The hotel offers finely appointed rooms, exquisite decor and world-class facilities in an environment that is calm, secure and spacious. You will also find one of Port Moresby's most popular social hubs, a place for business meetings and networking, and weekend family relaxation.
