Lae international or melanesian hotel?

I will be posted in Lae for 5 weeks late October.

I like to swim and use a gym but have read that the International's pool and gym are closed for renovations.

Which hotel would be best?

How far is it to walk from one hotel to the other? Is it safe to do so?

It's about 15 minutes walk from the Melanesian Hotel to the LIH along a safe residential street - there are many security vehicles up and down that road all the time and the only people on that street are mainly residents so you won’t have any problem.

Lae Inter is building a humungous new conference centre on top of where the pool was and it seems to be taking forever. Rooms-wise the LIH is more flashy but Melanesian is fine. Melanesian is walking distance from shops, Chinese restaurant, pharmacy, Big Rooster takeaway etc where as LIH is a tad far to walk so Melanesian is always my choice for convenience.

Don't consider any other hotels as the rest are all too far from the main town area.
