Recently, I had a week holiday in Noumea staying at Hotel Le Paris. The location of the hotel is excellent as it is by La place de Cocotiers where special events were taking place every night leading up to the new year's eve. I enjoyed walking there to see a concert, play and hip hop dancing competition! The whole park was lit up with beautiful Christmas lights at night, too. Local bus stops are also nearby as well as shops, restaurants, tourist information centre and museums. Fresh produce and fish market is only 10 minutes walk and has lots of local craft and souvenir stalls on Saturdays and Sundays. NO 10 and 11 buses can take you to the beaches and it takes only 15 minutes.
The room was spacious, clean and has a fridge and tea/coffee facility. The bathroom was very spacious and having a bathtub was a bonus. Although my room on the 3rd floor was facing the street, there was no noise from the street and a cafe next door.
Breakfast was fresh and had a good variety to choose from and the ladies who served there were very cheerful, welcoming and helpful.
Staying at Hotel Le Paris made my first holiday in Noumea so pleasant and memorable that I will definitely go back again. Thanks, Hotel Le Paris! less
