“Old time charm situated so that you aren't aware you are in the middle of a big city”
Reviewed 10 November 2010

This hotel had a wonderful room and a restaurant surrounded by a garden. You have to take a taxi to get to town but I liked that since I didn't feel like there was that much to see and do in Suva unless you like nightlife. One day to tour the museum and the town was adequate for me.

My only complaint was that we weren't told that every time we used the internet there would be a $10 Fijian charge. Some hotels have coin slots to access the internet, others offer it for free so we were prepared for either but since there wasn't a place for coins or a sign that there was a charge, we assumed it was free and used it for a few minutes at a time. If we knew there was a flat charge, I and my friends would have still used it but at a time when we could have spent more time at the computer.

Reviewed 23 October 2010

was in Suva for 4 days on business and had been warned the downtown hotels were terrible [confirmed by tripadvisor reviews!]. So began looking for another option. 5 Princes was great--clean, comfortable, friendly, and the garden was an oasis in Suva's gray, smoggy, congested, urban environment. Neighborhood was good/safe too unlike the downtown hotels. Dinners at the 5 Princes are quite good too. Easy taxi ride to offices downtown and other restaurants. Very good if you are a solo female traveler--a major issue at some of the other Suva hotels.

Suva - Fiji's capital - isn't a tourist destination but this hotel offers a relaxed atmosphere and the comfortable surroundings you might associate with a pleasant holiday. Wooden building with lovely verandah overlooking a pretty garden and pool just big enough for exercise. Beyond that, in the distance, the sea. Food simple and fresh, breakfast fine, service personal but unobtrusive, room air conditioned and modern. Not much on TV but who needs TV when the weather's sunny? I sat on the verandah and worked, swam, read, had meetings, worked. A cheerful good value alternative to the usual chain hotel. Five minutes out of town but easily accessible.
