“Good location, good accommodation.”
Reviewed 6 July 2009

City lodge is kind of an upmarket no-frills place just opposite the market in Port-Vila. I stayed there for 3 nights whilst waiting for a plane back to Brisbane on my way to the UK. I was quite sad to be leaving the amazing place which is Vanuatu so I decided to treat myself to somewhere more comfortable.

The rooms are comforatable, clean and air conditioned. Bathroom has hot water (usual for Port-Vila but believe me not so usual for Vanuatu).

I would recommend staying here for a short stop-over. Any longer and you really should stay on Iririki or at the Sebel (which of course cost about 10x more than City Lodge!!)

I had one problem with negotiation of the price. I speak the local language and the reception girl told me my entire stay would cost 4000VT. I asked her to check and confirm this wasn't per night (in the local language and in English just to be safe) and she said it was. When I checked out I was presented for a bill for 12000VT, as obviously she was quoting me the price per night!

Otherwise - a flawless and comfortable stay!

Reviewed 10 June 2009

we stayed there for a couple of nights recently.

The rooms are tidy, the bathroom is clean. The price was a bit expensive (not including breakfast), but we appreciated the location, right infront of the market, and the supermarket. Windows have a good proof against mosquitoes. There is no cooking facilities.
