Myself and a bunch of others were sent here by Dar Es Salaam airport after our flight was diverted there from Zanzibar. We have no idea why this happened.. Anyway, we ended up here for 18 hours or so. We couldn't enjoy/comment on the facilities on offer as we spent our time trying to find out when we were getting...

Pretty much the only thing I need is wireless internet in the room. It's nice to have a resturant/bar on premises as well, go down and grab a bite to eat or drink and catch a ball game. And believe it or not, staff that are friendly make a huge difference. I was chatting with one of the security guards...

I booked into this hotel via a booking agency. On arrival they had no record of my booking. However, they checked me in anyway (it was already payed for) and I said I would pay if necessary but next day they got the reservation in, They were very kind and wonderful in how they helped me.

Landed here by constraint. This was where Precision Air parked us, after over-selling thier flight from Zanzibar to Nairobi. We were given two comfortable rooms for our family of 4. One of the double heads was very good, the other less so. The receptionist-manager was very nice and apologised on behalf of Precision Air. He walked us to our rooms...

An affordable place to stay especially on visits of more than 5 days. Rooms have a living room, kitchenette (with kettle, fridge & microwave) plus the bedroom. The linen looks aged though clean-ish (might wanna bring your own), AC works though Wi-Fi is not the best. TV has only 10 channels....meals could be improved. Staff is friendly and hospitable. Generally,...

This is an old and ugly building both from outside and inside. Probably constructed in 70ies. Room and linen was not clean. Food was bad too and you do not have any options around the building. I've been taken there by the local partner and checked out (run away!) the next morning. The company that made the booking has paid...
