The hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the airport and about 20 minutes from the middle of town. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and spoke good English - they took lots of time giving us good advice on getting around.

The hotel itself is fine for the price - showers are warm and rooms clean, but it is need of a substantial refurbishment. A complimentary breakfast was also included with the room price and there was a free shuttle (the 800m) to the airport at 12.00 and 15.00, which was great as we're travelling on a budget.

This place supposedly had a "Garden View" but the hotel doesn't have a garden - just plants around a pool, of which I could see if I stood right next to the window and looked right, as mainly I was looking at a wall. And to that pool, large groups gather there and play music from their iPhones and talk loudly sometimes as late as 3am. No signs are warding these people off, and staff don't care.

My room was super musty (see above "wall view") and the fan didn't work, so nothing got dry. Ever.

As to be wifi, it would actually be better if the place didn't have it since it's so slow/cuts out it's a waste of time.

I spent two days in Hotel Hotu Matua and I enjoyed to stay here so much.

I'm the only one customer in here.
Staff were really nice to me.

Other people complain about this hotel and it makes me so sad.

Price is good, room is clean (bath was a bit old but it's ok), friendly staff, how can you say it's bad.

If you want to stay hotel with a big pool or great restaurant, you should go to expensive hotel.

Overall, I like this hotel even people called old-hotel.

We were unfortunate to have our hotel reservation being changed to this hotel, Hotu Matua.
The hotel is located outside of the city at Easter Island, about 30 min by walk to the main street. Not a long distance, but problematic when the hotel does not even sell bottled water (nor food), and you must go to the city to buy this and other basic items as well!!
The hotel is from the 70's and have not been renovated since then. All interior is old or broken, the pool area is dirty and the pool is green of bad water.
We had to change rooms three times in order to get a fairly decent room with a working toilet and shower, and being able to close the front door. The room was really bad, but better than the rest of the rooms... :-(

The bed, linen, pillows, and the floor was so dirty that you would get your feet black of dirt even when walking a couple of meters from bathroom to the bed. Even after extra cleaning of the rooms, the floor was really dirty.
Beside this, there were both ants and cockroaches in the room (and in the bed and in our bags and clothes). We got a bottle with "Radar" when we complained about it...

Do not stay at this hotel!!! And if you get "transferred" due to overbooking, demand to be richly compensated in doing so!
