The hotel is expensive, make no mistake but worth it. It is close to the airport, free shuttle service and friendly staff. My room was immaculate and the stay comfortable. Breakfast is a treat and the other dishes at dinner were equally good. For a first time visitor a well located hotel with good service and food. I felt safe...

Clean comfortable room, great service, safe and secure. Food was really good, and the beer was cold. We only stayed 1 night, while transiting from Kavieng to Sydney, and I made the right choice in Hotels!

Me and my wife have stayed in Airways hotel for 2 weeks. During this stay we believe we were robbed several devices - two (2) phones, one (1) iPod and few other less valuable objects.

Hello Miriska85 The allegation for missing items (robbery as you call it) are untrue. It is also unfair that you give us one star with out any proof. Following are the facts: On arrival all guests are asked to sign a registration card, which clearly states that all valuable items must be stored in the safe provided in the room...

It's a beautiful hotel which is just a few minutes away from Jacksons International Airport. Nice environment, well-maintained facilities. The staff were all very polite (some ladies were shy) and they made you feel welcomed into their country. Stayed in the Fountain Room and it was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Black tiled floor so it was easy to see...

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel as my flights to Alotao were unfortunately cancelled. The hotel itself is greatly secured by armed guards which is good and (unfortunately) necessary in Port Moresby. The accommodation was clean and quiet comfortable, but I found the rate definitely overpriced (standard room 222€/night). The view of my room was absolutely horrible as it...

I stayed at the Airways Hotel and was impressed by its secure compound, world class service, decor, level of international standard food, restaurants, room service and decor of hotel. Particularly the mounted DC-3 aircraft that is joined to the restaurant overlooking the runways is a unique feature.

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. While princes are always welcome, you don't have to be a prince to stay at Airways. From the moment you enter its gates, you'll know you have arrived at a place apart: a unique and unrivalled hotel where your convenience and comfort is our priority. Airways.
