Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

King Solomon Hotel is at the middle of Honiara city, yet the hotel is built in a village set-up and look like a mini village. After check in, a small cable car is ready to get you in one of the rooms located at Level 1 to 8. You will see a nice landscape, an outdoor swimming pool at level 1, etc. Here, you are entering in luxurious hotel rooms, restaurants, swiming pool and bar. The weekend are quite noisy, and if you don't like it, ask hotel staff to give you a room at level 3 or above. The Sea View rooms are other advantage, ask for that.

We spent 3 nights in King Solomon Hotel and enjoyed it very much. We were given a very nice double room with a small balcony and attached bathroom facing the town side. My husband having a health problem needed a bed of his own. The room had only a double bed so the staff organized a second bed in the room. All our requirements were met by a very gentle and cooperative staff. I can recommend anyone to stay there. The general atmosphere of the hotel with its funicular going up and down the slope is very nice and gives a feel of the old days.
Should we go back to Honiara we would definitely return to King Solomon.

Spent a week here for quarantine, service was lovely. During your quarantine expect a delay during lunch and dinner rush hour due to the high volume in the room service orders. To avoid this, order ahead of time. Room was very clean. I had a great view from the top floor in room 803.

Came here for a month long business trip. I checked their website out and was excited by the prospect of the hotel. It looks great on the website.

Unfortunately that's where it stops. The only upsides of the rooms are that they are spacious and have quite a nice view over the city and water.

Downsides:
Incredibly run down - rotting door framing, leaking water, broken toilets, old and uncomfortable matresses
Expensive: Upwards of $200 NZD per night
Wifi: No Wi-Fi in rooms. Patchy wifi that works about half the time in the lobby.

There is nothing included in the cost that you might expect from a hotel of this price - no complimentary water (can't drink the tap water), breakfast is $50 SGD for some toast and peanut butter with sachet coffee

The staff are friendly and doing their best to make up for the run down and tired facilities, but I wouldn't stay here again. They trade on a captive audience with very few options. The price is obscene for what you actually get.

Hotel rooms are very tired and bare. Poor lighting and weak air conditioning. Room was spacious, though.

Bathroom is a bad joke. Water pressure is so low that there is hardly any water from the shower (maybe it is because I was at the top level). To compensate that, you can't squeeze the handles tight enough to prevent water dripping constantly. Faucet is not attached to the sink and tends to move.

In the positive side the communal areas, the lobby and garden around funicular, look nice.

Food was quite good in the restaurant but they close quite early. I saw several rats running in the restaurant heading to the kitchen. Maybe one of them contributed to the picant flavor in my pizza? There is a small bar, which is frequented by locals so it can't be that bad.

People at the reception are helpful and help to buy and activate a local aim card. You will need it as wifi works only in the lobby.

Room Tip: Lower level rooms are safer in case the funicular is out of service. There is a long staircase up.

The good things are the room servicing, the pool, cleanliness, the pizzas. We had good response to some maintenance issues but others were not so easily fixed (dripping shower, sticking toilet flush, no hot water, gas stove not functioning, rats coming in under the door (they fixed that with a metal strip). But when you get critical about staff it may pay to note they get paid less than $2AUD an hour. So leave a good tip. They have 2 bedroom units that are not available online,

Good value, any other hotel in Honiara is more than twice the price. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is well situated in the middle of town. Meals in the restaurant were excellent however hygiene is questionable. Unfortunately the hotel is rundown, in my room the ceiling fan rattles, the curtains are month eaten, the toilet doesn't flush properly, the TV has only two channels with the very poor reception. Friday night is disco night with loud live music from 8 p.m. till 2 a.m. don't expect to get any sleep!

Big room with fridge, old school, not new but was really fine. There are newer hotels for three times the price and much smaller and musty rooms, so all up this is the best value in town. The bar was fun and friendly and the pizzas were big and tasty.

We stayed here for just one night and it was everything we needed from a hotel. It is a great location and a comfortable bed with a good shower. WiFi does not reach the rooms, only available in the lobby. The pool and fitness center are nice to hang out at.

The best hotel to stay in when in honiara, front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. It has the best pool, and has a cable car to take you up to your room. If you want a sea view get a room at the top level.. They also have the best pizza.
