    Not as easy to find because you hace to go through an alley that at night might seem dangerous (it's not). Very basic rooms but with hot water. Very basic breakfast (bread, coffee and a banana). WiFi only on the lobby. Very near to ferry...More

    We first got a fowl smelling twin room instead of the booked double room. After changing the room, thinks took a better turn. Only, the bednet was to small for a double bed, leaving us exposed at night. Luckily not many mosquitoes during the dry...More

    Thank you Lukas for the review. Given that cleanliness and ambiance is something we put emphasis on, the foul odor in the room was a surprise. As for the bednet, that also is a surprise as it is an important component for us and we...More

    Response from Kinga B | Reviewed this property |
    For the double room with a fan you pay 35 000 Tsh, that is about 16$ for 2 people. For the double room with air condition you pay 45 000 Tsh, so about 21$. We didn't find better prices in the city.
