About Us

What's On Offer

Located a short, 10-minute walk from Lae's Toptown, is Morobe's newest 38-room boutique hotel, the second hotel within the City Hotel Group that just last year brought to Lae's residents the popular and affordable Lae City Hotel and City Café. In a signature departure from the city's other accommodations, Hotel Morobe aims not only to satisfy the business and functional needs of its clientele, but also to afford its discerning guests a chance to indulge, luxuriate and truly unwind in its 24 x Superior Rooms, 6 x Executive Rooms, and 8 x Deluxe Suites.

Guests are treated to a feast of color which begins from the moment of arrival into the cheerful coral-pink lobby, and follows throughout the hotel's inviting halls hung with vibrant and engaging animal art prints by the American artist, Pat Saunders-White.

The theme of 'rough luxe' appears in myriad forms from the white marbled floor, hand-distressed wooden reception counter, rustic Provencal chandelier, and Asian-inspired blue-and-white porcelain lamp bases in the main lobby; to weathered wood benches and countertops in the Breakfast Lounge; and, Perrin & Rowe Art Deco bathroom fixtures and tapware in the 1st floor Powder Room. The hotel layers multiple styles and textures together to create as inviting and hospitable an environment possible for its tired and travel-worn guests.

While spontaneous and extroverted in its public spaces, Hotel Morobe lowers the color volume in its private quarters, offering guests rooms that shimmer softly in intimate Oriental tones, deep comfort, and irresistible charm. Warm and serene coffee-colored guest rooms reflect old-world glamor with crystal bedside lamps, antique-mirrored surfaces, upholstered furniture studded with nailhead trim, ceramic lattice-work side stools, plush rugs, and sumptuous floor-length window treatments.

These luxe, textured furnishings are paired with modern amenities, such as 42"-inch flat-screen tvs, 24/7 cable television with multiple channels, refrigerators, electric water kettles, safety deposit boxes, and free WIFI internet connection in every room.

Along with 24-hour guarded premises, Hotel Morobe offers high comfort and security at unbeatable value—a promise consistent with all the City Hotel Group has offered to its guests thus far.
